Skipping breakfast linked to heart attacks in men: Harvard study
July 22, 2013 (WLS) -- Harvard researchers found that older men who regularly skipped breakfast had a 27 percent higher risk of heart attack than those who ate a morning meal.
Other studies have linked skipping breakfast to obesity, high blood pressure and diabetes but this is the first to draw a connection to heart attacks.
Experts say people who don't have breakfast are more likely to eat larger, unhealthier meals later.
The study was published in the journal "Circulation."
