Daylight Saving Time Could Kill You This Weekend

Heart Hospital Uses Technology To Reduce Errors

This weekend marks the blessed time.  Time to change the time.  Time to spring forward and go forth through another season of renewal.  And it could kill you!

I’m being a little bombastic but there is an interesting study out regarding DST and heart attacks.  Apparently there is a 10% increase in the risk of having a heart attack the Monday and Tuesday following the time change in March.

Like most studies with surprising results scientists aren’t sure of why there is a connection and what heart owners can do to keep the risk at the normal level.

I’d suggest refraining from strenuous activity, spicy foods and intimacy until Wednesday.
