Break­fast slashes heart dis­ease risk

First For Women - - Nutrition -

Ex­perts have long touted break­fast as the most im­por­tant meal of the day, and now a study in the Jour­nal of the Amer­i­can Col­lege

of Car­di­ol­ogy shows it can have a big im­pact on heart health. Span­ish re­searchers looked at the eat­ing habits of 4,052 adults and found that those who made time for a morn­ing meal were 150% less likely to have plaque buildup in their ar­ter­ies (an early sign of heart dis­ease) than those who didn’t eat break­fast. The sci­en­tists say eat­ing first thing can bal­ance hor­mones that are key to keep­ing ar­ter­ies clear.
