To come to such conclusions, specialists for 18 years studied 6550 people over the age of 40 who did not have heart disease. Participants took regular surveys and talked about their breakfast. Most people (59%) ate breakfast every day, 5.1% of subjects regularly skipped tomorrow, 10.9% did it rarely, and 25% from time to time. The researchers found a clear link between eating breakfast and the risk of developing cardiovascular diseases – people who refused to eat breakfast were 87% more likely to suffer from cardiovascular problems.
Experts pointed out several factors that may underlie this connection. First, people who do not eat breakfast are more likely to have a junk meal during the day. Secondly, breakfast can help balance blood sugar levels and control blood pressure.

Scientists are constantly saying that breakfast is an important meal, but despite this, today a large number of people – especially young people – refuse it.
