Skipping breakfast raises heart attack risk by 27%: Study TNN |
LONDON: Skipping breakfast, common the world over, has for the first
time been associated with increase in heart attacks. Missing out on the
morning meal has been found to increase coronary heart disease risk,
reveals a 16-year-long study published in the American Heart Association
skip breakfast have a 27% higher risk of heart attack or death from
coronary heart disease than those who don't, the study says. Those who
reported not eating breakfast were younger than those who did, and more
likely to be smokers, employed full time, unmarried, less physically
active and drank more alcohol.
Also, men who reported eating
late at night had a 55% higher coronary heart disease risk than those
who didn't. Researchers analyzed food frequency questionnaire data and
tracked health outcomes for 16 years (1992-2008) on 26,902 male health
professionals ages 45-82 before coming to their conclusion.
"Skipping breakfast may lead to one or more risk factors, including
obesity, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes, which may
in turn lead to a heart attack over time," said Leah E Cahill, lead
author from the Harvard School of Public Health.
group spent decades studying the health effects of diet quality and
composition, and now this new data also suggests overall dietary habits
can be important to lower risk of coronary heart disease," said
co-author Eric Rimm.
Men who reported eating breakfast, on an
average, ate one more time per day than those who skipped breakfast,
implying that those who abstained from breakfast were not eating
additional make-up meals later in the day. Although there was some
overlap between those who skipped breakfast and those who ate late at
night, 76% of late-night eaters also ate breakfast, researchers said.
The study collected comprehensive questionnaire data from the
participants and accounted for many important factors such as TV
watching, physical activity, sleep, diet quality, alcohol intake,
medical history, and body-mass index. It also included social factors
like whether or not the men worked full-time, were married, saw their
doctor regularly for physical exams, or smoked currently or in the past.
"Don't skip breakfast," Cahill said. "Eating breakfast is
associated with a decreased risk of heart attacks. Incorporating many
types of healthy foods into your breakfast is an easy way to ensure your
meal provides adequate energy and a healthy balance of nutrients, such
as protein, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals. For example, adding
nuts and chopped fruit to a bowl of whole grain cereal or steel-cut
oatmeal in the morning is a great way to start the day."
