Extending Daylight Could Boost Your Health and Help the Planet

Many countries in Europe, North America, and the Middle East put their clocks back an hour to mark the end of Daylight Savings Time, usually in late October or early November. But it turns out that doing this may be bad for health, waste energy and increase pollution.

Some experts argue that in more northern regions, the energy needed to for light in the earlier nightfall, as well as the limits it puts on outdoor activities, are harmful to health and the environment.

Reuters reports:

“Leaving clocks alone as winter approaches would allow an extra hour of daylight in the afternoon and could boost levels of vitamin D as well as encourage people to exercise more.”
