Study: Skipping Breakfast Tied To Higher Risk Of Heart-Related Death
(CNN) — Whether you eat breakfast might be linked with your risk of dying early from cardiovascular disease, according to a new study.

Every Little Move You Make Can Help Your Health, Study Says
Lovers of vigorous exercise aren’t the only ones who get health benefits from physical activity. Lower-key workouts — even activities you’d never think of as exercise — can also improve your well-being, studies find. Now, new research published in JAMA Network Open shows just how impactful any type of movement can be. Compared to women who get less exercise, those who get lots of light physical activity may have up to a 42% lower risk of dying from coronary problems, such as heart attacks, and a 22% lower risk of developing cardiovascular disease, the study says.

A greater reduced risk was associated with the   highest level of light physical activity (more than 5.6 hours per day) compared with the lowest level of light physical activity (less than 3.9 hours per day).
