4. It’s important for heart health
A regular habit of skipping breakfast is shown to increase the risk of serious coronary heart disease by 27%, according to an important study by Harvard School of Public Health. The scientists examined the habits of over 26,000 men for 16 years, and they found a significant link between skipping breakfast and the incidence of heart attacks and deaths from cardiac problems. This linkage held up even after the researchers eliminated other risk factors such as smoking, overall nutrition, and physical activity.
