DOCTOR'S NOTE.

IT SEEMS breakfast is important to keeping your heart healthy.

A recent systematic review in The BMJ failed to reach a definite conclusion about the value of eating breakfast for people wanting to lose weight. Although a large study from the US throws no more light on the matter, it did discover an association between breakfast and heart disease.

People who never ate breakfast had double the cardiovascular mortality of those who ate breakfast every day.

It's not proof of cause and effect, but it might be useful in flagging up a high-risk group.

CAPTION(S):

Make sure you eat breakfast to keep your heart
