Most men and women in Houston have been taught since childhood that breakfast is a meal that should never be skipped. Despite this, some people just can’t (or won’t) find the time to sit down for this meal because of work, the school run or a sheer lack of appetite in the morning. However, the results of a recent study led by researchers from Harvard Medical School could provide the incentive they need to change this habit.

As well as setting the tone for your metabolism, researchers have discovered that eating breakfast every morning may help reduce your risk of contracting coronary heart disease. According to the new study, men who reported skipping this meal on a regular basis in a survey on food frequency were statistically more likely to suffer a heart attack or pass away as a result of the disease. This was determined by reviewing the questionnaire results and health records of 26,902 adult males between 45 and 82 over the course of 16 years, according to a press release from the American Heart Association.

“Skipping breakfast may lead to one or more risk factors, including obesity, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes, which may in turn lead to a heart attack over time,” said lead author Leah Cahill, Ph.D, of the Harvard School of Public Health.

With this in mind, it’s clear that eating a balanced breakfast every morning may play a substantial role in helping men and women in Houston age gracefully.
