Why many U.S. states want to leave day light savings behind!

March 9, 2018

 Do not forget to spring your clocks forward this coming Sunday! 

 

 

Despite this ancient long tradition, it has been reported that two states in the America are looking towards ending resetting their clocks two times a year. The Florida governor has been sent a bill seeking hope of staying on a daylight savings time year round. This Sunshine Protection Act will be implemented in hopes of enjoying more sunshine in during the winter months. The state of Massachusetts is also seeking to end the daylight savings change twice a year, causing other states in the Northeast to think about joining both Hawaii and Arizona on their daylight savings free time zones. 

 

What is the purpose of daylight savings? 

 

According to NASA, Benjamin Franklin had created the concept of daylight savings. The United States, Canada and Europe have been preserving daylight through this concept since World War I. Any state has the opportunity to opt out of participating in daylight savings at any point during the year. However, the start dates vary between both the United States and Europe, meaning that we implement daylight savings at different months of the year. 

 

Health Risks

 

After the spring time change, heart attacks spike up, virto fertilization success decreases and strokes have a tendency to rise when daylight savings times start and end. With teenagers, fatigue and exhaustion are very common effects of the time change.
