Now, study on Americans links eating breakfast to lower risk of stroke

A study published Monday in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology showed that the risk of death from cardiovascular disease spiked by 87 percent for people who say they never eat the morning meal. It was also a behavioral marker for unhealthy lifestyle habits.

Researchers have found that not eating breakfast was significantly associated with greater risk for cardiovascular-related death, particularly from stroke.

The study used data by the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey that was taken from 1984 to 1994 and followed up through 2011 for 6,550 USA adults, aged 40 to 75, who recorded how often they had breakfast.

Of those adults, 5.1% reported never consuming breakfast; 10.9% rarely ate breakfast; 25% had breakfast on some days; and 59% had breakfast every day.

Skipping breakfast had a link to changes in appetite, higher blood pressure, risky changes in lipid levels and lower satisfaction after eating, the researchers said.

Bao, who is an assistant professor of epidemiology at the University of Iowa, said that the study took into consideration the age, sex, race, socioeconomic status, diet, lifestyle, body mass index and disease status of each participant.

Those who ate breakfast everyday primarily comprised non-Hispanic whites (those of European descent, as opposed to those of Hispanic or Latino origins), while most non-Hispanic black participants tended to skip breakfast.

He said the risk factors of cardiovascular disease are diabetes, lipid disorders and hypertension.

According to W.H.O around the globe cardiovascular disease, namely stroke and heart disease, is the leading cause of death accounting for 15.2 million deaths combined during 2016; within the U.S. heart disease is the leading cause of death. They did not have information on what foods and beverages participants consumed for breakfast, they were unable to assess the effects of changes in breakfast eating habits during the follow-up on cardiovascular and all-cause mortality because information was only collected at the baseline, and, because they were using the NHANES III Linked Mortality File, they could not rule out the possibility of errors in classification of the cause of death.

Breakfast has for years been described as the most important meal of the day, though the proposition has come into question of late.

"It is imperative to understand the long-term health impact of skipping breakfast on cardiovascular mortality in the general population". And in the USA the leading cause of death is heart disease.

Some studies, several involving animals, suggest that intermittent fasting can reduce the risk of obesity and its related diseases, such as non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, diabetes and cancer. But, of course, you didn't need a study to tell you that!
