Skipping Breakfast Increases Chances Of Getting A Heart Attack
Skipping Breakfast Increases Chances Of Getting A Heart Attack

Doctors, nutrition’s and mothers have always preached the importance of breakfast, because it is the much needed and most important meal of the day, well to that add another reason to eat breakfast.

 Doctors/ researchers have find out that skipping breakfast could increase one’s chances of getting a heart attack.

 A study was conducted on older men showed that those who usually skipped breakfast had 27% chances of getting a heart attack, compared to those who ate the most important meal of the day.

Though researchers are not certain to what increases the chances of getting a heart attack to those who don’t eat their breakfast, they speculate that it might be because people who don't eat breakfast are more likely to be hungrier later in the day and eat larger meals. Those meals mean the body must process a larger amount of kilojoules in a shorter amount of time. As a result that spikes their sugar levels in the blood and that could possibly cause clogged arteries.

The researcher did not ask what the participants ate for breakfast, to void passing judgment and trying to pass the message of “unhealthy/ unbalanced breakfast is better than no breakfast at all’

Andrew Odegaard, a University of Minnesota researcher said "We don't know whether it's the timing or content of breakfast that's important. It's probably both.

The new research was released Monday by the journal Circulation
