Daylight savings controversy – how can it kill you?

From Wikipedia:

Daylight saving time (DST) – also summer time in British English (see Terminology) – is the practice of temporarily advancing clocks so that afternoons have more daylight and mornings have less. Typically clocks are adjusted forward one hour near the start of spring and are adjusted backward in autumn.[1] Modern DST was first proposed in 1895 by George Vernon Hudson.[2] Many countries have used it since then; details vary by locationand change occasionally.

Now that we all know what I’m talking about it, I would like to explain to you about certain controversy surrounding the whole issue, and the stake is quite high – human lives. Please, watch the video to find out how daylight saving might kill you.

And what do you say now?
