When is the best time to avoid heart attacks? Dr Oz answered all of these important questions! There is an actual science behind how all of these work, and they can dramatically improve your health. Internal clocks or Chronobiology is crucial to understanding our bodies. Did you ever wonder why more babies are born in the middle of the night? Or why there are more car accidents at 2 pm?

Dr Oz said that the number 1 killer in women is heart attacks. So when are heart attacks most likely to strike?
