Healthy Start

Want to help your favorite guy live a long, healthy life? Share a healthy breakfast with him.

Researchers says that men who don’t eat breakfast are far more likely to suffer from heart disease, according to new research out of Harvard Medical School and its School of Public Health.

Researchers found male breakfast-skippers to be an especially unhealthy cohort — more likely to smoke, drink excessively and make poor lifestyle choices. What’s interesting is researchers in this study weren’t even interested in what kind of breakfast men ate, implying that even the sausage-egg-and-cheese crowd has an edge on breakfast abstainers. The researchers claimed breakfast-skipping guys have a 55 percent higher chance of having a coronary-related episode in their lifetime.

The research was reported recently in the journal Circulation.
