A recent study: not eating breakfast regularly is associated with increased risk of heart disease

Nutritionists have always stressed the importance of breakfast, which is a recent study to support. Where researchers found that the habit of a person to skip breakfast permanently linked to increased risk of heart disease.

The study included more than 6,500 adult Americans followed for 20 years. The researchers found that people who skip breakfast always face a 87 percent higher risk of heart death than those who regularly eat breakfast.

The researchers suggest that exceeding breakfast may push the person to over-eat in the next meal, and it may affect the sensitivity of the body to insulin, which is associated with increased risk of obesity and diabetes, and thus explains the results of the study.

The findings were published recently in the Journal of American College of Cardiology.
