Study: Skipping breakfast could increase your risk of diabetes

A new report finds that skipping breakfast could increase your risk of Type 2 Diabetes.

Researchers in Germany studied more than 96,000 people.

They found that those who skipped breakfast for just one day of the week were associated with a 6-percent higher risk of developing diabetes.

The risk went up with each additional day, peaking at a 55-percent higher risk after skipping breakfast for four to five days each week.
