Daylight Saving Time adjustments could lead to health risks, studies say

That morning, most phones and computers will automatically jump an hour forward, and we'll lose an hour of sleep.

Daylight saving time arrives this weekend, which means it's once again time to move the clocks ahead an hour.

Both politicians have cited data from a MA study commissioned in 2016 on whether Eastern Daylight Time should be abolished in favor of year-round Atlantic Standard Time.

The reason that springing the clocks forward can kill us comes down to interrupted sleep schedules.

Daylight saving time is 52 years old.

.

Daylight-saving time was originally concocted as a way to save energy in the evening, and was implemented during World War I in Germany.

- US territories: None of America's island territories observe the time change.

Last November, 60 percent of voters approved a proposition which states that Californians want to keep daylight savings time permanent - with no more time shifts.

A 2014 Rasmussen poll found that a declining percentage of adults in the United States - 33% - think daylight saving time is "worth the hassle".

DST was instituted during WWI but abandoned soon after only to be revived in 1942 by President Franklin Roosevelt, again in an effort to conserve resources during a world war. Domestically, 48 states recognize it, but Hawaii, most of Arizona, and U.S. Territories like Puerto Rico and Guam do not. In most of Arizona, daylight saving time does not exist.

However, it's hard to say whether daylight saving translates into energy savings, according to several studies, including a 2007 Department of Energy study and a 1997 study on a residential home in Kansas, Live Science previously reported. People also report feeling disoriented and unproductive. Farmers in the United States were mainly against Daylight Saving Time, so much so, in fact, that they lobbied against it. A bill was recently introduced in the Arkansas Legislature to eliminate Daylight Saving Time in the state, but it was withdrawn on February 27. That means set your clocks ahead one hour before going to bed on Saturday, or at least wake up at 2:00am to do it so you're not screwed in the morning.
