Colour me skeptical. I wonder if they account for the difference between artisanal smoked meat and factory pastrami?

Edit: Corrected per AB.

I think you need to interpret what I'm saying in a reasonable way.

It's mostly about dramatic presentation of data.

If you eat a 16 oz steak every day, your probability of getting a heart attack over the next decade goes up from 1.3% to 1.5% (using my own numbers)

Doesn't sound that impressive anymore, especially when you discount it for the difficulty in separating variables.
I never said that

Eating a 16 oz steak every day could slow you down, too. Dodging traffic may be a greater health risk for many folks in urban areas, than coronary risks.

Exactly. What I think this study suggests is that you should avoid steak when DST goes into effect, but eat as much of it as you want on the day the clock is turned back.

An expert at the

University of Alabama

says that the Monday and Tuesday after moving the clocks head one hour in March is associated with a 10 percent increase in the risk of having a heart attack.



University of Alabama Associate Professor Martin Young, PhD., recently pointed out the phenomenon. "The opposite is true when falling back in October," Young said. "This risk decreases by about 10 percent."

He had a PhD, so he obviously knows what he's talking about.
