Skipping Breakfast May Double the Risk of Developing Atherosclerosis

A research from Spain suggests that skipping breakfast could double the risk of subclinical atherosclerosis, a latent form of atherosclerosis which does not produce symptoms immediately.skipping breakfast

A team of researchers, led by Dr. Irina Uzhova from the Centro Nacional de Investigaciones Cardiovasculares Carlos III in Madrid, Spain, examined three types of breakfast consumption, looking for a connection between breakfast patterns and the incidence of subclinical atherosclerosis. The researchers found that 27% of participants consumed a high-energy breakfast on a regular basis. Others consumed a low-energy breakfast, and 3% of the participants ate very little of skipped breakfast at all.

Study co-author Prof. Jose L. Peñalvo of Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy at Tufts University says: “Our findings are important for health professionals and might be used as a simple message for lifestyle-based interventions and public health strategies, as well as informing dietary recommendations and guidelines.”
