The connection, found in a study of 6,550 adults aged 65-75, was particularly strong for strokes.

Almost 60 per cent of the participants had breakfast every day, a quarter on some days, and 16 per cent rarely or never. All were free of heart disease  at the start of the study. Over an average 17 years of follow-up, there were 2,318 deaths, including 619 from cardiovascular diseases.

People who never ate breakfast were more likely to be obese and have high cholesterol, but the observational study, in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology, controlled for these and many other health, behavioural and socioeconomic factors.

Compared with those who had breakfast every day, those who skipped the meal had an 87 per cent increased risk of death from any cardiovascular disease and a 19 per cent increased risk of death overall. Breakfast skippers had a 59 per cent increased risk of developing heart disease, and more than triple the risk of having a stroke.

“Many studies have shown that skipping breakfast is related to a higher risk of diabetes, hypertension and high cholesterol,” said lead author Dr Wei Bao, assistant professor of epidemiology at the University of Iowa. “Our study suggests that eating breakfast could be a simple way to promote cardiovascular health.

  1. You made some decent points there. I checked on the internet for more information about the issue and found most people will go along with your views on this
    website. I just couldn’t depart your web site before suggesting that I
    actually loved the standard information an individual provide on your guests?
    Is gonna be back often in order to inspect new posts I’ve
    been browsing online more than three hours today, yet I never
    found any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me.
    In my opinion, if all web owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be much more useful than ever
