Habitual breakfast may possibly stop direct poisoning in children

According to a new research,

Comprising a usual breakfast is linked with lower blood lead levels in kids. 
It is known that fasting increases lead fascination in adults and thus regular meals and munchies are suggested for children to stop lead poisoning. Breakfast habits were determined by family trends with both the parents and grandparents of children who ate breakfast tending to be professionals or more educated.

Data from the China Jintan Child Cohort Study evaluated blood lead levels to social aspects, eating examples and intake of micro-nutrients. While there were no differences in breakfast patterns for age or gender of the child there were differences in blood lead levels. The risk of lead poisoning in boys was almost twice that of girls, and four and five year olds had twice the risk of lead poisoning than three year olds. However, when variables, such as age and the gender of the child were taken into account, children who ate a regular breakfast had 15 percent lower blood lead levels than those who skipped breakfast. 

The lesson has been available in BioMed Centrals open access journal Environmental Health.
