The Link Between Breakfast, Davidovich Bagels & Good Health?

The Link Between Breakfast, Davidovich Bagels & Good Health?

August 1, 2013-While Davidovich Bakery isn't planning a major marketing campaign around the slogan that eating their bagels will save lives, a new research study does suggests that regularly skipping breakfast can have severe health consequences in adults.

The results of a 16 year study conducted by Harvard University on the impact of skipping breakfast on 27,000 test subjects concluded that those who skipped breakfast regularly had a 27% higher risk of coronary disease or heart attack than those who consumed a regular breakfast.  

According to Leah E. Cahill, Ph.d, of the Department of Nutrition at Harvard University, who worked on the study, 

"skipping breakfast keeps your body in the stressful state of fasting for longer, which can disrupt your metabolism in considerable and, apparently, life-threatening, ways."  
Cahill goes on to note that many people incorporate skipping breakfast as part of a weight loss regimen. The Harvard study confirms that this prescription is not only ineffective, but dangerous to the dieter's health.

So while Davidovich Bakery may not be willing to make bold claims about how their delicious bagels are a medical necessity, it is comfortable making the assertion that if the Harvard Study has any merit, whatsoever, that eating a Davidovich Bagel is a great way to start the day.  Aside from the great taste of the products, and the fact that Davidovich Bagels are made with all natural ingredients, including unbleached, non-bromated flour, the Davidovich Bagel is among the world's most portable foods. How is this relevant? Well, according to the Harvard study, in addition to dieting, the single largest reason to skip breakfast for people was that they "were on the go and had no time to sit down for breakfast".

So, as you head in to work to start your busy day, keep in mind that you can enjoy the delicious flavor or a traditional, hand made, kettle boiled, plank baked Davidovich Bagel and feel like you are doing your heart, as well as your taste buds, some good.
