Skipping Breakfasts Regularly May Increase the Risk of Heart Disease
A new study from the University of Iowa suggests that skipping breakfasts can increase the risk of heart disease by 87%.
For the study, a team of researchers analyzed data from 6,550 people aged 40 and more with heart disease which were collected for 18 years. Most of them (59%) ate breakfast regularly, 5.1% never ate breakfast, and 10.9% rarely ate it, and 25% skipped it for a few days.
The authors write in their paper: “Breakfast is believed to be an important meal of the day, whereas there has been an increasing prevalence of skipping breakfast over the past 50 years in the United States, with as many as 23.8% of young people skipping breakfast every day.”
