Skip your breakfast and eat late at night? The researchers have warned:

The results published in the European Journal of Preventive Cardiology suggest that people with such an unhealthy lifestyle four to five times had higher likelihood of early death and increased chances for a second heart attack.

"Our research shows that the two eating habits are independently associated with worse outcomes after a heart attack, but an accumulation of bad habits will only make matters worse." said co-author Marcos Minicucci of Sao Paulo State University in Brazil.

"We also think that the inflammatory response, oxidative stress and endothelial function could be included in the link between unhealthy eating habits and cardiovascular outcomes," he added.

The study involved 1

13 patients with a median age of 60, of whom 73 percent were men. The study included patients with a particularly severe form of heart attack known as ST segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI).

According to the team, this was the first study to investigate these unhealthy behaviors in patients with acute coronary syndrome. In 58 percent of the patients, breakfast was skipped, 51 percent had late supper, 41 percent had both behaviors.

To improve eating habits, researchers recommended an interval of at least two hours between dinner and bedtime.

"A good breakfast usually consists of dairy products (fat-free or low-fat milk, yogurt and cheese), carbohydrates (wholemeal bread, bagels, cereals) and whole fruits," the team said. IANS
