Losing an hour 'raises risk of heart attack on Monday morning'
Abrupt' change to daily schedule increases risk of heart attack by 10%
A team from the University of Alabama were studying the impact of daylight saving on a person's health.
They found that the abrupt change to a person's daily schedule increased the risk of having a heart attack by 10 per cent. This impact isn't felt on the Sunday morning as most people adapt their weekend schedule and rise a little later.
However, the risk peaks on Monday when workers have to get up at a set time to get to the office. When the clocks go back in October the risk of heart attack decreases by 10 per cent.
