Daylight savings time
Daylight Saving Time gained worldwide acceptance -- or was forced onto people, depending on your view of things -- around WWII. It was initially proposed as an energy saving measure and a way to boost the economy. Turns out it did neither and it ended up causing some serious health repercussions to the citizens of nations that engaged in this idiotic practice. Accidents, heart attacks and increased rates of depression and suicide along with sleep disturbances and general confusion all follow 'springing forward and falling back'.

On this episode of the Health and Wellness Show we'll explore the topic of Daylight Saving Time and how it effects the human body.
