A study in the New England Journal of Medicine two years ago suggested heart attacks rise about 5 percent after the spring change.

Data studied over 30 years in Australia suggests there’s even a rise in suicides – especially among men.

Researchers say that small shifts in diurnal rhythms are potentially destabilizing in vulnerable individuals.
