Doctor says losing sleep is never good.
It's Daylight Saving Time again this weekend, but how healthy is it to keep messing with our clocks?
A White House petition to end the decades old practice cites health concerns such as increased risk for heart attack, even car accidents due to drowsy drivers.
Dr. Tom Garcia at West Houston Medical Center says while he wouldn't go that far, he does say losing an hour of sleep can cause negative health effects.
"Anybody who has sleep deprivation is going to have a problem," Garcia tells KTRH News. "So go to bed a couple hours early, which usually helps the situation."
"Perhaps when you get up Sunday morning do a little stretching, a little yoga, a little meditation to help you be alert and adjust," he says.
So far just 6,000 people have signed the petition to end DST or keep it year-round. At least 100,000 signatures are needed for the president to consider the proposal.
