Daylight Saving May Affect Your Body’s Rhythm

FOX New Mexico

It’s the first day back to work for many after moving their clocks forward one hour for Daylight Saving, but some medical professionals say the practice of daylight saving could impact your health. 

Your body is out of rhythm and it’s what can happen in those few days of adjusting that worries doctor Mike Cirigliano. 

” I think it’s an old tradition that doesn’t serve anyone, doesn’t increase productivity and it increases the risk of health problems including car accidents,” says Cirigliano. “You mess up those circadian rhythms, you’re going to have a problem and that’s what we think increases the risk of stroke heart attacks and a lot of other problems that we see.”
