The way we live, including our diet, can help determine how healthy we are.
Much depends on genetics and some diseases or problems are inherited, but it also depends on what we eat and drink.
Too much of one thing, or too little, can make us sick in different ways. Of course there are many dietary choices that can help reduce our risk of having a serious health problem like a heart attack.
Studies have shown that the way we eat breakfast can cause us problems in the future.
Can skipping breakfast increase the risk of a heart attack?
A study has found that men who skip breakfast have a higher risk for a heart attack. Research found that men who skip breakfast are 27 percent more likely to have a heart attack or develop heart disease.
It is also believed that other health problems can occur as a result of this common eating feature.
“Men who skip breakfast are more likely to gain weight, develop diabetes, have hypertension and have high cholesterol,” said Eric Rimm, author and associate professor of epidemiology and nutrition at Harvard School.
