Skip breakfast at your own peril

I have to say I am terrible about eating breakfast.  

I’m in about the 1/5 minority who generally skip breakfast.  You would think that, as an Fort Myers, FL MD, I would be more diligent about breakfast, especially after the research findings shown below .

Sixteen (16) years of tracking 27,000 older/middle aged men found that those who regularly skipped breakfast had a 30% increased risk of a heart attack or dying from heart disease than those who ate regularly. 

Wow!  I guess I may have to start eating those Egg McMuffins! Not the best breakfast perhaps, but at least it is breakfast.
