          Even though that in the very beginning of Daylight Saving Time (DST) policy, standards were decided individually by each country, and were not regulated, most European member States have progressively been adopting the so called “summer time” since 1970s or 1980s which had been gradually harmonized under EU law [1]. Public discomfort have been argued for years and claims from several social groups regarding the need for a public inquiry were attended. However, after European Union decided to properly ask citizens about their feelings regarding Daylight Saving Time, a small fraction of European citizens (68% from Germany) had told that they don't want to change the time twice a year.

          The impact of Daylight Saving Time (DST) on daily life has gained a lot of attention in the past few years and, notably, in the past months since the European Commission addressed the issue. It was suggested recently [1] through evidences that the impact of one-hour change of time in the circadian timing system may be relevant in terms of public health. Perhaps inadvertently, authors only addressed one leg of the problem —the magnitude of the change of time—, nonetheless they arrived to a bold statement “DST should be discontinued.”
