Moving the clocks - a ticking time bomb?

Moving the clocks back – a ticking time bomb?

Lighter, longer evenings would increase the time British youngsters spend on vigorous physical activities every day by an average of two minutes.

Research by the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine claims that children’s’ health would be improved if clocks were moved forward. A study of 23,000 children aged 5 to 16 in England, Australia, the US, Norway, Denmark, Estonia, Switzerland, Brazil and Madeira found that children’s’ total daily activity levels were 20% higher on summer days when the sun set after 9pm, than in the winter when sunset was before 5pm. The tests allowed for the impact of both weather conditions and temperature.

Whilst the introduction of further daylight savings is not claimed to be the answer to low physical activity levels in young people, it is considered by many to be a step in the right direction.
