Got A Tip?


Turning your clock back could be good for your heart health


Swedish researchers reviewed 20 years of records and saw that fewer heart attacks occurred on the Monday following the weekend when clocks were set back. They theorize the extra hour of sleep accounts for the decline.

Interesting. Fewer than on any other Monday?
