Skipping breakfast increases heart attack risk ??? Post Posted: Thu May 22, 2014 2:25 pm

A new study of older men revealed that those who regularly skipped breakfast had a 27 percent higher risk of a heart attack than those who ate a morning meal.

The Harvard researchers said that there's no reason why the results wouldn't apply to other people, too. the Harvard researchers said.

Is it true? Why would skipping breakfast be a heart attack risk?

Experts aren't sure about it but they think, 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 calories in a shorter amount of time. That can spike sugar levels in the blood and perhaps lead to clogged arteries.

The researchers did not ask what the study participants ate for breakfast and were not prepared to pass judgment on whether a fatty, sugary breakfast is better than no breakfast at all.

Andrew Odegaard, a University of Minnesota researcher who has studied a link between skipping breakfast and health problems like obesity and high blood pressure said, "We don't know whether it's the timing or content of breakfast that's important. It's probably both."

"Generally, people who eat breakfast tend to eat a healthier diet," he added.

For the studies, the researchers surveyed nearly 27,000 men about their eating habits in 1992, most of them are at 45 and about 13 percent of them said they regularly skipped breakfast.

Over the next 16 years, 1,527 suffered fatal or non-fatal heart attacks, including 171 who had said they regularly skipped breakfast.

when calculating the risk in percent, researchers found it is 27 percent, taking into account other factors like smoking, drinking, diet and health problems like high blood pressure and obesity.

According to federal estimates, 18 percent of U.S. adults regularly skip breakfast.
So the study could be important news for many, said Eric Rimm, one of the study authors at the Harvard School of Public Health.

Eric added, "It's a really simple message," he said. "Breakfast is an important meal."
