If you’re thinking about skipping breakfast, you might want to think again.

That could be especially wise if you’re a guy.

A new study out of Harvard finds that men who don’t eat breakfast are 27 percent more likely to suffer heart attacks or heart disease.

Researchers say that skipping meals puts an extra strain on the body, which could lead to obesity, diabetes and even the flu.
