Researchers with the American College of Cardiology found skipping breakfast could be linked to higher risk for cardiovascular related-death.

After taking a person’s age, sex, race, diet, lifestyle, body mass index, and disease status into account, the study found those who never ate breakfast had an 87 percent higher risk of a cardiovascular death, specifically heart disease and stroke.

The survey looked at data from 1988 to 1994 on more than 6,500 adults aged 40 to 75.
