Be careful if you eat dinner before you go to bed without breakfast! It can affect your health after a heart attack.

Sometimes we add breakfast again on a daily basis.

According to a new study, those who skip breakfast every day had a 87% higher risk of cardiovascular death than those who ate breakfast every day.

The study, published this month in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology, asked how often people ate data from 6,550 American adults aged 40 to 75 between 1988 and 1994.

Only 5% of the respondents said they did not eat breakfast at all, and 11% said they did not eat breakfast at all.

The team then reviewed follow-up data up to 2011 to determine the health status of adults and found 2,318 deaths, including 619 heart-related deaths.

The researchers controlled various factors such as age, gender, race, socio-economic status, diet and lifestyle factors. However, the results of this study can only show that there is a causal relationship between breakfast and heart disease.

"Breakfast is traditionally considered one of the most important or most important meals of the day, but there is not much data to say & # 39; yes & # 39; or & # 39; no & # 39; Wei Bao, an author of the study, said in an interview with CNN,

Bao said in a statement that without breakfast, the blood pressure increases and appetite changes during the health effects, causing people to overeat if they become uncomfortable all day. Missing breakfast is also associated with high cholesterol, he said.

Not eating breakfast is also an indicator of other habits that increase the risk of cardiovascular disease, such as overweight, heavy drinkers, older smokers, and physically inactive people. Research authors attempted to control the data for these factors.

"Skipping breakfast significantly increased the risk of death from cardiovascular disease," the researchers said. "Our research supports the benefits of eating breakfast to promote cardiovascular health."
