Health Risks for Breakfast Skippers

PositiveTips

A study of 26,902 men who were free of cardiovascular disease in 1992 revealed both skipping breakfast and eating late in the evening increased cardiovascular risk. Those who skipped breakfast had 27% greater risk, and those who ate late at night had 55% higher risk. These findings fell just shy of statistical significance after adjusting for confounders, suggesting these habits may act through pathways associated with traditional risk factors.

PositiveTip: Your grandmother may have been right: don't skip breakfast and avoid eating late at night.
