Breakfast is considered to be the most important meal of the day and now experts explain why it can be detrimental to men’s health. According to a new study, men who skip breakfast have a 27 percent higher risk of suffering a heart attack or developing heart disease than those who start the day with something in their stomach.
What health conditions are men prone to when they skip breakfast
“Men who skip breakfast are more likely to gain weight, to develop diabetes, to have hypertension and to have high cholesterol,” said Eric Rimm, senior author and associate professor of epidemiology and nutrition at Harvard School of Public Health. The study also found a 55 percent increased risk of heart disease in men who regularly indulge in late-night snacking.
People now have a bigger reason to eat a healthier breakfast besides just watching their weight.
