Skipping breakfast, eating late dinners could be deadly for heart attack survivors, study finds

Westlake Legal Group eating-late-at-night Skipping breakfast, eating late dinners could be deadly for heart attack survivors, study finds Madeline Farber fox-news/health/heart-health fox-news/health/healthy-living fox news fnc/health fnc article 762dd733-809b-5271-a3aa-a7f76c261154

Skipping breakfast and eating dinner close to bedtime could be a deadly decision — especially for those who have already suffered a heart attack, a study released this week suggests.

Those who skip breakfast and eat late dinners have a four to five times higher chance of an “[early] death, another heart attack, or angina (chest pain) within 30 days after hospital discharge for heart attack,” per the study, which was published Thursday in the European Journal of Preventive Cardiology.

BLOOD PRESSURE MEDICATION RECALL EXPANDED OVER POSSIBLE CANCER-CAUSING INGREDIENT

To come to this conclusion, researchers focused on those who had suffered from a “particularly serious” heart attack known as an ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction, or STEMI, according to the study. Researchers then asked the 113 participants — 73 percent of whom were men — with an average age of 60 about their eating habits.

Skipping breakfast, as defined by the study’s authors, meant the patient had nothing to eat before noon — excluding coffee and water — at least three times a week. A late dinner was defined as eating a meal within two hours before going to bed at least three times a week.

“People who work late may be particularly susceptible to having a late supper and then not being hungry in the morning.”

— Marcos Minicucci, study author 

By the end, the researchers concluded nearly 60 percent of participants skipped breakfast, roughly 50 percent ate late-night dinners and 41 percent adhered to both eating habits.

“Our research shows that the two eating behaviors are independently linked with poorer outcomes after a heart attack, but having a cluster of bad habits will only make things worse,” Marcos Minicucci, of São Paolo State University in Brazil and the study’s author, said.

“People who work late may be particularly susceptible to having a late supper and then not being hungry in the morning,” he continued, adding that “one in ten patients with STEMI dies within a year, and nutrition is a relatively inexpensive and easy way to improve prognosis.”

NEW YORK MAN WITH MEASLES TRAVELING TO MICHIGAN UNKNOWINGLY INFECTS 39 PEOPLE WITH DISEASE

Though the study focuses on the adverse effects of skipping breakfast and eating late dinners for STEMI patients, specifically, the former habit is not uncommon, even among those who are healthy. In fact, a 2011 survey from the NPD Group found 31 million Americans skip breakfast each day. Many who participated in the survey said at the time that time constraints, running late and being too busy, among other responses, were reasons they skipped what many medical professionals say is the most important meal of the day.

“It is said that the best way to live is to breakfast like a king,” Minicucci said, noting a “good breakfast is usually composed of dairy products (fat-free or low-fat milk, yogurt and cheese), a carbohydrate (whole wheat bread, bagels, cereals), and whole fruits.” Ideally, per Minicucci, breakfast should have roughly 15 to 35 percent of a person’s total daily calorie intake.

How ‘Assassin’s Creed’ could help rebuilding efforts at Notre Dame

The devastating fire at Notre Dame caused significant damage to the famed structure, causing the spire to topple and gutting the inside of the Cathedral. There’s now an international competition aimed at finding the best way to repair and restore Notre Dame, but those architects and engineers could be getting some unlikely help – from a popular video game.

It’s a classic case of art imitating life- using gaming. Ubisoft Game studio makes the massively popular “Assassin’s Creed” series, and they’re well-known for using real-life historical sites during game play, which is often based on real-life historical movements or events. And now the game’s eighth installment, “Unity”, is a potential source for help in restoring the centuries-old Cathedral.

The 2014 game is set during the French Revolution, and centers around Notre Dame, which was painstakingly re-created for use in game play. The artist in charge says she took around two years to build a detailed model of the building, which she calls a brick-by-brick digital recreation – even including most of the artwork found inside. It’s significantly more detailed than a laser scan, and some experts are now saying the model could represent the best chance for architects to study the original construction.

Ubisoft is acknowledging the game’s debt to Notre Dame, offering “United” for free on its online store for a week after the fire. The studio is also donating 500,000 Euros to help with the restoration, writing in a statement, “As the smoke clears on the events that unfolded on Monday at the Notre-Dame de Paris, we stand in solidarité with our fellow Parisians and everyone around the world moved by the devastation the fire caused.”

A lawyer for Congo opposition leader Moise Katumbi says a court has annulled his three-year prison sentence, enabling him to return from exile in Belgium.

The Court of Cassation, or supreme court of appeals, made the judgment Friday, saying that Katumbi can enter Congo a free man.

Lawyer Jean Joseph Mukendi said the court found fraud in the sentencing.

Congo’s government issued an arrest warrant last year against Katumbi, who had been a leading presidential contender before fleeing Congo in May 2016 after falling out with former President Joseph Kabila and as prosecutors announced they would try him on charges of hiring mercenaries, which he denied.

Katumbi tried to enter Congo to register as a candidate for December’s presidential election. He said he was blocked at the border with Zambia.

Eric Swalwell: No apology necessary for surveilling Trump campaign

Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Calif., argued the special counsel’s report “certainly” showed evidence of collusion and rejected the idea that President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign deserved an apology for the controversial surveillance conducted under former President Barack Obama’s administration.

When Fox News host Julie Banderas asked Swalwell about a potential apology, the California congressman said that special counsel Robert Mueller’s report “laid out a multiplicity of contacts between the Trump campaign and Russians.”

He contended that although special counsel Robert Mueller’s report didn’t declare collusion beyond a reasonable doubt, it still showed enough evidence of troubling contacts between Russia and Trump’s associates. Swalwell argued that “reasonable suspicion,” a lower standard than “beyond a reasonable doubt,” was all that was necessary for starting an investigation.

“There was certainly evidence of collusion, not evidence that met the beyond a reasonable doubt standard” he said on “Outnumbered” before affirming suspicions that Trump potentially knew about Russian activities related to the election. “This president is in no way cleared,” Swalwell said.

MUELLER REPORT IGNITES NEW DEM BATTLE OVER IMPEACHMENT

Swalwell’s appearance came amid growing pressure from Democrats for the Justice Department to reveal more information related to the investigation. The Trump administration, however, has declared “Game Over,” arguing that the report put collusion and obstruction concerns to rest.

Kellyanne Conway, Trump’s close adviser and 2016 campaign manager, indicated that the press owed her and the rest of the administration an apology. “We’re accepting apologies today, too, for anybody who feels the grace in offering them,” she told reporters on Thursday.

“The big lie that you’ve let fly for two years, it’s over, folks,” she also said in reference to collusion.

Swalwell, who serves on both the House Judiciary and Intelligence Committees, has acted as a key public figure in the Democratic push for further investigation. His interview indicated that Democrats would continue to pursue the issue despite speculation that it might be a poor political strategy going into 2020.

KELLYANNE CONWAY REITERATES CALL FOR ADAM SCHIFF’S RESIGNATION AFTER MUELLER REPORT’S RELEASE

Swalwell told Banderas that he wasn’t so much worried about the political consequences as he was about preserving American democracy.

“It’s such an extraordinary remedy, we shouldn’t even consider the political consequences,” he said. “It’s the consequence to our democracy — are we going to set a standard and say no president should do this or are we not?”

When asked whether Democrats should apologize, Swalwell seemed to decline the opportunity.

“I’ll never apologize for loving our country so much that I don’t think any campaign transition or president should draw as close to the Russians and welcome their support and never tell law enforcement while they were seeking to support them,” he said.

“I’ll always stand on our side rather than Russia’s, and I just wish the president would, too,” he said.

An Alabama teenager who was charged in the 2016 murder of his parents only to have those charges dropped last year says he believes the town sheriff is still looking for ways to put him in jail.

Jesse “Madison” Holton, then 17, was accused of gunning down his parents Michael and April Holton in their home in Eclectic, Alabama in September 2016.

Michael Holton, the former mayor of the town, was found dead with a gunshot wound to the head. April Holton, 37, died a day later from severe head trauma.

DNA LEADS TO ARREST IN COLD CASE MURDERS OF TWO ALABAMA GIRLS, REPORTS SAY

The killings rocked the tiny town and many believe Holton is to blame.

The case will be highlighted on NBC’s “Dateline,” airing Friday night.

Authorities at the time said that Holton threw a party – which involved drugs and alcohol – without his parents’ permission. The couple returned home to find their house in complete disarray.  Michael Horton called the sheriff’s department and when authorities arrived, they found the father had handcuffed the son and told officers he planned on signing a juvenile warrant the following morning.

ALABAMA TEACHER ARRESTED AFTER GUN DISCHARGES IN HIS POCKET INSIDE A CLASSROOM OF FIRST GRADERS

The deputy left but about a half hour later, a neighbor called the cops to say Holton showed up and claimed his parents were fighting. The police officer returned to the scene and found Michael Holton dead of a gunshot wound to the head and his wife April critically wounded.

Holton told authorities that his father shot his mother before turning the gun on himself. However, investigators doubted his story and said the physical evidence at the scene didn’t match up to Holton’s recollection of what happened.

Holton was charged with his parents’ deaths but in October the district attorney dropped the charges.

“From the beginning, this case has been open to interpretation as to what is actually the truth…either Jesse Holton killed his father and mother; the father of Jesse Holton killed Jesse’s mother then Jesse killed his father; or the father of Jesse Holton killed Jesse’s mother and then killed himself,” Elmore County District Attorney Randall Houston wrote in a statement.

“My office has reason to believe any of these three scenarios could have occurred, but we have no proof to support any of the three theories beyond a reasonable doubt… Therefore, we are ethically obligated to dismiss the murder charges against Jesse Holton.”

Though the charges were dropped Horton tells “Dateline” he has “no doubt in my mind that the sheriff will try to put me back in jail.”

Joanna Gaines had an adorable surprise visitor with her birthday breakfast in bed on Friday morning.

The 41-year-old designer’s husband, Chip, tweeted a picture of their 9-month-old son Crew sitting on the couch ahead of the surprise.

TIM TEBOW PRAISES CHIP AND JOANNA GAINES’ ‘STRONG FAITH,’ ‘INCREDIBLE HEARTS’ IN TIME 100 TRIBUTE

“Crew is ready to surprise ⁦@joannagaines⁩ with breakfast in bed.. happy birthday Joanna! #AkaMom,” Chip tweeted.

The couple has four other children: Drake, 14, Ella, 13, Duke, 10, and Emmie, 9.

On Monday, the former “Fixer Upper” stars were named among the most influential people on the annual TIME 100 list, and their tribute was penned by Tim Tebow.

“Joanna and Chip Gaines are two incredible people with incredible hearts,” Tebow wrote.

CHIP AND JOANNA GAINES WANT NEW CABLE NETWORK ‘TO FEEL LIKE HOME’

The former NFL quarterback went on to praise their hard work and generosity and lauded their ability to impact people’s lives first on their hit HGTV show “Fixer Uppers” and “soon with their own TV network.”

Earlier this month, the couple confirmed they are developing their own network, which will be released in the summer of 2020 and will replace Discovery’s DIY Network.

Last week at Discovery, Inc’s Upfronts at the Lincoln Center, the couple shared their hopes for the network, saying they want it to “bring families together” and “build bridges in communities.”

The Gaines — who have built their lifestyle and home empire, Magnolia, over the years — also emphasized to the audience that if they can make it, anyone can.

Wife wields piece of firewood to end fight between brothers

Authorities say a wild squabble between two West Virginia brothers came to an abrupt end when one of their wives cracked her brother-in-law in the head with a log.

A criminal complaint filed Thursday by the Kanawha County Sheriff’s Office says 48-year-old Edward Guy Cornish is facing multiple charges after a fight with his brother in Elkview.

The complaint says Cornish first pointed a rifle at his brother but the brother was able to wrestle the gun away. Deputies say Cornish then pulled out a large knife and tried to stab his brother.

That’s when the brother’s wife hit Cornish in the head with a piece of firewood, knocking him over.

Cornish left before authorities arrived but was arrested after returning to the scene.

He has requested a public defender but hasn’t been assigned a lawyer yet.

Sen. Michael Bennet, D-Colo., is recovering at home after a “completely successful” surgery for prostate cancer, his office said Friday — opening the door for the Democrat to throw his hat into the 2020 presidential race

“Last weekend, Michael underwent surgery and is recovering at his home in Colorado,” spokeswoman Courtney Gidner said in a statement. “His doctors report the surgery was completely successful and he requires no further treatment. Michael and his family deeply appreciate the well wishes and support from Coloradans and others across the country, and he looks forward to returning to work after the recess.”

MICHAEL BENNET ON CANCER DIAGNOSIS: ‘I DON’T SEE THIS STOPPING ME’ FROM 2020 RUN

The two-term senator announced this month that he had been diagnosed with cancer but told Fox News it had been caught early. He had been openly contemplating a 2020 run and suggested he would follow through with those plans if the surgery went well.

“I feel really lucky. It was caught early and this is a really treatable form of cancer and we have insurance. I think I’m going to be fine. I hope I will because I really want to have the opportunity to run in 2020,” he said earlier this month.

He noted in that interview that then-Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., had successful cancer surgery at the start of his 2004 presidential campaign.

“John was 59 when he had the same operation. He had it and two weeks later he was in California, doing what he needed to do out there to campaign,” he said. “So I take this seriously, but if all goes well I don’t see this stopping me.”

Bennet had said before his surgery that he hopes to jump into the White House race within a few weeks of the surgery if he gets a clean bill of health.

Bennet will face a struggle to catch up with other contenders, some of whom have bigger name recognition, larger campaign war chests, and have been in the race longer.

However, he is not the only candidate leaving it late to jump into the packed Democratic field. Former Vice President Joe Biden is expected to declare his candidacy for president next week, two sources told Fox News Friday.

A D.C. federal appeals court ruled Friday that the House of Representatives does not have to allow a self-described atheist to deliver secular prayers.

The Good Friday ruling concerned efforts by Dan Barker, co-president of the Freedom from Religion Foundation, to pray in the House chamber as a guest chaplain — only to be turned down by Father Patrick Conroy, the House chaplain.

PENNSYLVANIA LAWMAKER DEFENDS CONTROVERSIAL PRAYER 

The court, however, sided with Conroy in determining the House was in its right to require prayers be religious in nature.

“We could not order Conroy to allow Barker to deliver a secular invocation because the House permissibly limits the opening prayer to religious prayer. Barker has therefore failed to state a claim for which relief can be granted,” the opinion stated.

Article I, Section 5 of the Constitution declares that both the House and Senate “may determine the rules of its proceedings.”

Barker had alleged that Conroy rejected him “because he is an atheist.” But the court determined that while that may be true, the House requirement that prayers be religious holds weight.

“In other words, even if, as Barker alleges, he was actually excluded simply for being an atheist, he is entitled to none of the relief he seeks,” the opinion said.

The tradition of House and Senate prayers goes back to 1789.

The House and Senate both begin their legislative days with a religious invocation, frequently delivered by Conroy and his Senate counterpart Barry Black.

“It wasn’t just a major. It was the Masters, and it was – gave me goosebumps and, to be perfectly honest, a few tears,” said Knight.

TIGER WOODS’ FIRST MASTERS WIN SINCE 2005 WAS ‘JUST SPECTACULAR,’ JIM GRAY SAYS

“That was a long, hard struggle, but he did it. And I knew how hard he worked and how hard he tried. And it was one of – for me, one of the great moments in sports. You know, Michael Jordan’s 55 points when he had the flu and just a bunch of them that rise up, but that was one of the really great ones.”

Woods did the unthinkable Sunday and pulled off his first Masters victory since 2005 – the 43-year-old’s first major tournament win in more than a decade.

Woods’ 13-under was enough to defeat Dustin Johnson, Xander Schauffle, and Brooks Koepeka by one stroke.

In addition to Woods’ fifth Masters championship and 15th major title, trailing only the great Jack Nicklaus in both categories, Sunday marked his 81st victory on the PGA Tour, one away from the career record held by Sam Snead. It was also the first time Tiger won a major when not entering the final round with at least a share of the lead.

“I really believed that he would win again,” said Knight.

“He’s not only basically the most talented player in the game, he’s also the hardest worker and he’s also the toughest mind. And you bring all those things together you’ve got a chance.”

Nike released a new ad featuring Tiger Woods immediately following his Masters win, which showed video of Woods throughout his life and read: “It’s crazy to think a 43-year-old who has experienced every high and every low and has just won his 15th major is chasing the same dream as a 3-year-old.”

TIGER WOODS PLEADS GUILTY TO RECKLESS DRIVING, WILL ENTER DUI DIVERSION PROGRAM

Reacting to the win Sunday, Woods scooped up his 10-year-old son Charlie, hugged his mother and then his 11-year-old daughter Sam, and everyone else in his camp that stood by him through a public divorce and an embarrassing DUI arrest from a concoction of painkillers and surgeries.

“He’s got the same driver’s license, but he’s a different guy. That — basically he was brash and confident and wouldn’t let anything interfere with his mindset,” said Knight.

He added that he believes Woods “matured” a lot saying, “I’m sure his being a father of two is — and going through all the hard times that he did, has changed him and mostly changed him for the better.”

Knight added that witnessing Woods’ victory on Sunday was “truly a magical moment” adding, “it wasn’t just one of golf’s greatest moments, it was one of sport’s greatest moments.”
