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.
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.
