Breakfast can help prevent strokes, heart attack and sudden death. Advice
on not to skip breakfast!Tips for healthy living... For those who always
skip breakfast, you should start kicking 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 plaque
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, andperhaps 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
