Daylight-saving time is bad for you - Business Insider

"And there's some debate as to how much energy DST actually saves."

'"Our data suggest this rhythm is resistant to the arbitrary changes in clock time with daylight-saving," the researchers wrote. ', "Daylight-saving time (yes, that's the right way to say it) was created during World War I to decrease energy use."

'The hormone cortisol peaked almost a full hour later — 58 minutes to be exact — during daylight-saving time than it did after daylight-saving time ended, their analysis showed. '

'A study published in 2008 in the journal Sleep and Biological Rhythms found an uptick in suicides in Australian men during the first weeks after daylight-saving time. '

Which makes sense why only conservative areas don't observe it

And there are a bunch of people here who think the idea was created for farmers. Odd that they if anyone don't observe it.

It was invented to save engery during WWI.

It's been invented and re-invented a lot longer than WWI. It never sticks because it's fucking worthless. Except now, when it can be used to kill people who work for a living (or live solely to work).

If it weren't for articles like these I wouldn't have noticed the time change.

I hate Daylight Saving time. I lose my sleep rhythm and feel minor "jet lag" for a week for no reason. It had its use, but it's long outdated now.

It never had a use... They literally never proved it saved candles or energy. It was an idea they thought would save something and politicians bought the story then made it a law.
