With the days growing longer and the clocks “springing” forward this weekend, the University of Guelph has an expert who can discuss daylight saving time and its health implications.

Dr. Tami Martino has been researching how our circadian rhythms affect our cardiovascular systems, looking into how circadian disruptions increase the risk for heart disease and heart attacks, and how men’s and women’s hearts respond differently to time-of-day signals.

She appeared on CBC Radio’s The Morning Edition K-W with Craig Norris on Friday to discuss daylight saving time, heart health and the health of our pets. Read more on CBC News Online.

Martino is the director of the Centre for Cardiovascular Investigation at U of G, and a professor of biomedical sciences at U of G’s Ontario Veterinary College.
