We’ve all heard it: one of the best ways to start your day off right is with a healthy breakfast. In fact, skipping breakfast has been shown to increase the possibility of heart disease, high blood pressure, and obesity. In one study, men who skipped breakfast were 27% more likely to experience a heart attack or die from heart disease. The European Journal of Clinical Nutrition even found that breakfast-skipping is associated with other health-compromising behaviors in adults and adolescents such as alcohol and drug abuse. Bottom line: breakfast is pretty darn important for your health.
