Skipping Breakfast is Fraught with the Development of Cardiovascular Diseasesadmin
According to a new study by scientists from the University of Iowa, skipping breakfast can increase the risk of developing cardiovascular disease by 87%.
In order to come to such conclusions, for 18 years, specialists studied 6550 people over the age of 40 who did not have heart disease. Participants underwent regular polls and talked about their breakfast. Most people (59%) ate breakfast every day, 5.1% of subjects regularly skipped tomorrow, 10.9% did it rarely, and 25% did it from time to time. Researchers found a clear connection between eating breakfast and the risk of developing cardiovascular disease – people who refused to eat breakfast were 87% more likely to suffer from cardiovascular problems.
Experts pointed to several factors that may underlie this relationship. First, people who do not eat breakfast are more likely to eat junk food throughout the day. Secondly, breakfast can help balance blood sugar and control blood pressure.
