Skipping Breakfast Could Lead To Heart Attack: Study
Your heart arteries could be clogged if you are middle-aged adult and have been routinely skipping breakfast compared to those who enjoy a big morning meal.
Researchers say those who eat breakfast are less likely to harbor plaques in their arteries.
Plaques are in fact some deposits of calcium, fat and other substances. It builds up in arteries and harden those. This condition is called atherosclerosis and can lead to strokes, heart attacks and some other similar complications.
However, the latest finding does not prove that breakfast skipping directly harms arteries.
Senior researcher Jose Penalvo of Tufts University’s Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy in Boston said plaques may not come in your life if you skip breakfast.
However, he added that there are reasons linked to skipping meal with risk of atherosclerosis.
Penalvo further mentioned that skipping morning meal may also negatively effects appetite-regulating hormones, insulin and blood sugar as well.
Earlier studies revealed eating breakfast regularly may not result with obese, diabetes or heart disease.
In the current study researchers used objective tests like using ultrasound to screen for subclinical atherosclerosis.
More than 4,000 people aged between 40 and 54 were studied in Spain. It was found 75 percent of breakfast skippers showed plaque buildup.
Details of the research are published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.http://www.dailynewsz.com/skipping-breakfast-could-lead-to-heart-attack-study/http://www.dailynewsz.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/Skipping-Breakfast-Could-Lead-To-Heart-Attack.jpghttp://www.dailynewsz.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/Skipping-Breakfast-Could-Lead-To-Heart-Attack-300x300.jpgHealthLifestylebreakfast,heart attack,study
