Researchers analyzed the eating habits of 26,900 men, ages 45-82, over the span of 16 years, and found that men who skipped breakfast had a 27 percent higher risk of heart attack or death from heart disease. Those who skipped breakfast tended to be younger, more likely to be smokers, employed full time, unmarried, less active, and drank more alcohol. According to the study, skipping breakfast can lead to obesity, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes, and while the study focused on men, the same results apply to women. The lead author of the study suggests incorporating healthy foods into your breakfast routine to ensure your meal provides energy and nutrition for your day. T he study was published in the American Heart Association journal Circulation.
