Healthy living
For those who always skip breakfast, you should stop that habit now! You've
heard many times that "Breakfast is the most important meal
of the day." Now, recent research confirms that one of the worst
practices you can develop may be avoiding breakfast.


Because the frequency of heart attack, sudden death, and stroke peaks
between 6:00a.m. and noon, with the highest incidence being
between 8: 00a.m. and 10:00a.m.What mechanism within the body could account
for this significant jump in sudden death in the early
morning hours?

We may have an Answer.

Platelet, tiny elements in the blood that keep us from bleeding to Death if
we get a cut, can clump together inside our arteries due to
cholesterol or laque buildup in the artery lining. It is in the morning
hours that platelets become the most activated and tend to form these
internal blood clots at the greatest frequency.

However, eating even a very light breakfast prevents the morning platelet
activation that is associated with heart attacks and strokes.
Studies performed at Memorial University in St.Johns, Newfoundland
found that eating a light, very low-fat breakfast was critical in
modifying the morning platelet activation. Subjects in the study consumed
either low-fat or fat-free yogurt, orange juice, fruit, and a
source of protein coming from yogurt or fat-free milk. So if you skip
breakfast, it's important that you change this practice immediately
in light of this research. Develop a simple plan to eat cereal, such as
oatmeal or Bran Flakes, along with six ounces of grape juice
or orange juice, and perhaps a piece of fruit. This simple plan will keep
your platelets from sticking together, keep blood clots from
forming, and perhaps head off a potential Heart Attack or stroke. So
never ever skip breakfast
