SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – As San Diego residents lose an hour of sleep on Sunday, people at KUSI wonder what the effects of losing an hour of sleep are on our bodies.
Emily Manoogian, a Personnel Scientist at the Salk Institute, joined KUSI’s Hunter Sowards live on Saturday to discuss the effects of daylight saving time.
More road accidents, strokes and heart attacks occur near daylight saving time, Manoogian described.
The circadian rhythm affects everything about what your body does, he added.
Manoogian participated in the creation of the free application, My circadian clockwhich helps you understand what your circadian rhythms are.
The time you do things for your body has a huge impact, Manoogian added.
