Eating after 7pm increases risk of heart attack
Millions of Britons are increasing their risk of heart attacks by eating dinner after 7pm, experts have warned.
Researchers assessed more than 700 adults with high blood pressure, to see what difference their diet and eating times made to their health.
The study examined the types of foods eaten, amount of salt consumed, whether breakfast was eaten regularly and timing of evening meals.
The research found that eating dinner late had the most significant impact on overnight blood pressure.
Having dinner within two hours of bed time did more damage than the long-established risk of having a high salt diet, the study found.
