In fact, heart attacks and strokes tend to occur in greater frequency around the time shift, according to research cited in a New York Times story about efforts by some legislators to exempt their states from the practice.  At least 31 states have taken up proposals related to daylight savings, while two states, Hawaii and Arizona, already leave the clocks alone, staying on standard time
