Men who skipped breakfast were 27% more likely to have coronary heart disease during a 16-year follow-up than men who ate breakfast according to a study of 26,092 American men, aged 45- to 82-years-old who were part of the Health Professionals Follow-up Study who were free of cardiovascular disease and cancer at the start.
“Eating breakfast was associated with significantly lower [coronary heart disease] risk in this cohort of male health professionals,” the authors of the study concluded.
