Those who regularly skip breakfast have a heart disease risk of up to 87 percent, a new study shows.
Researchers at the University of Iowa studied 6550 people over the age of 40 who had no heart disease for 18 years.
The group received regular surveys and was asked, "How often do you have breakfast?"
Most of the group would have breakfast daily, 5.1 percent not, 10.9 percent rare, and 25 percent would skip several days.
Boffins have found a clear link between people's breakfast habits and the risk of heart disease.
Individuals who missed breakfast had an 87 percent greater chance of developing heart problems.

"Studies on the health effects of a breakfast break are sparse."
However, they pointed out that this is the first study dealing with breakfast habits and cardiovascular mortality.
