Below is an article I have receive thru e-mail. I think it is worth to share this. It is an important matter for our health. I don’t know the source of this article. Whoever you are .. Thanks. 🙂

Breakfast can help prevent strokes, heart attack and sudden death. Advice on not to skip breakfast!

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.
Why?


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

I hope that upon reading this article you will never hesitate to have your breakfast
