Some of these individuals are also pushing for later school beginnings, but experts argue that the benefits to tired teenagers could be offset by permanent summer time, as read in the journal Current Biology. The authors argue that Californian lawmakers pushing both policies are "confused".
The argument is as follows: During summertime, the clock moves one hour forward, so sunrise and sunset occur one hour later. This also pushes the biological clock forward by one hour. According to the authors at the University of Surrey in the UK, one might therefore rather get up in the morning and get up early in the morning.
Further research published online this month in the Journal of Health Economics examined neighboring counties that happened to be in different time zones. In the districts where the sun goes down an hour later each day, the working people go to bed later.
This extra hour of sunlight at the end of the day shortens sleep by an average of 1
9 minutes and "increases the likelihood that insufficient sleep will be reported," the authors write. The authors also found that the group with stronger sleep overall was in poorer health and was studying factors such as weight, diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
However, some have spoken out for a permanent summer time. The debate can be fierce, with Senator Marco Rubio, President Donald Trump
and a number of other elected officials in favor.
Kansen Chu, member of the California State Assembly, introduced a bill to submit his state to permanent summer time and has also voted for later school hours – CNN said in an e-mailed statement that he believes they "work well together ".
"My main objective was to stop the Abolish the practice of switching the clock back and forth twice a year, "said Chu.
"They were launched as a means of saving energy," he added, "but our lifestyle and energy use have changed since then."
He mentioned other possible benefits of permanent summer time, such as reducing traffic accidents and possibly avoiding health problems around the clock, such as heart attacks.
And maybe a crime could be prevented. According to a 2015 newspaper, the thefts of our watches are falling – an average of 7% over a full day and 27% in the last hour of the day – which used to be dark.
"Some of us are early risers, others are not," Chu said. "We are all different and the time zones have been set by the government, not by nature."
On the other hand, delaying school starts is often presented as a hassle to make children go to sleep – no less, some say, would this be permanent Summer time be effected.
"Teenagers in particular often suffer from lack of sleep and have been struggling to get up in the morning, which is why delays in starting school have been suggested," wrote the authors of the journal Current Biology.
Legislators have introduced bills in at least 14 states regulate school start-up times, says Start School Later, a non-profit organization focused on raising awareness of school lessons and sleep.
US health officials agree: "Schools are starting too early," he says of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
According to the CDC, adolescents who do not get at least eight to ten hours sleep are worse off in science, more likely to be overweight, and more likely to have depression symptoms. Other research has linked less sleep among adolescents to 'unsafe behaviors' such as drunk driving, risky sexual activity, and the use of drugs and alcohol.
The American Academy of Pediatrics has recommended that middle and high schools begin at 8:30 am early in the morning.
Some studies suggest that more daylight is associated with more physical activity in children. [19659003"Oneoftheconcernsoflateschoolchildhoodisthatwhensportsandactivitiestakeplaceafterward"Chusaid"Insummertimethesunwilleventuallygodowntoaccommodatelaterschoolandpost-schoolevents"
But a change when the sun goes down and school starts may not be the only way to combat youthful fatigue. According to a study published in February, only 5% of young people follow sleep, exercise and screen time recommendations.
"We see that so many of our high school students spend more than four, five or six hours a day for non-educational purposes. Cora Breuner, a professor of adolescent medicine at the Seattle Children's Hospital and chair of the American Academy of Pediatrics' Committee on Adolescence, told CNN earlier.
Breuner explained that teenagers might be able to stay awake long after turning off their devices had thought and thought about what kind of conversation was going on, or about the homework that they did not finish, not to mention that the light from the screens was being shown to disturb the secretion of melatonin, the hormone, the body says it's nighttime.
"I always say in my clinic everyone has to turn off their screen between 9 and 10," she said.
The rhythm brin
Without external influences such as sunlight, people tend to go into a sleep cycle that is just over 24 hours: an average of about 24.2 hours.
This is less of a problem for the average Earthmaker than for astronauts whipping around the earth so fast that they see a sunrise every 90 minutes. "After a few weeks, you'll fall asleep a few hours later than the first day," said Erin Flynn-Evans, director of NASA's Fatigue Countermeasures Laboratory, previously CNN.
We spend a lot of time inside and hold the light, maybe the sun is not the only thing that regulates our sleep-wake cycles.
"Some people are swept away by the solar time, some are not and many will be in the middle somewhere depending on their light exposure patterns," wrote the authors of the University of Surrey in the new paper.
Dr. Edith Bracho-Sanchez, Ashley Strickland and Michael Pearson of CNN contributed to the report.
