Daylight saving time is killing us. Turns out, time is not on your side. The day after switching to daylight saving time, thus losing an hour sleep, you are 25% more likely to have a heart attack. Sounds like the perfect excuse to “accidentally” forget to reset your clock and sleep in.
A 10-year study at the University of Minnesota Stroke Center found that cat owners are 40 percent less likely to have heart attacks than non-cat owners. And that’s not all. A cat at home reduces the risk of other heart diseases and stroke by 30 percent. The researchers speculated that purring may be responsible.
