Breakfast slashes heart disease risk
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.
