ON BEHALF of CADS (Citizens Against Dayling Saving) members, I sincerely thank Joy Cunningham for her letter (The NDL, August 6), “End NSW’s dictatorial daylight saving”.
I also fully support Joy’s comments.
Medical evidence has been ignored that changes to our body clocks are linked to health problems, including diabetes and depression.
In fact, I have been contacted by people who have been told by their doctors that the lack of melatonin is their reason for depression and could be the cause of Type 2 diabetes, due to also having low levels of melatonin.
It’s time to stop changing our circadian rhythms and body clocks by having a four-year trial without daylight saving.
It’s bad enough for adults to cope with the two problems mentioned, but for the parents and pre-teenagers it’s tragic. Some are as young as five years old.
