The PESA study shows that people who regularly eat a ‘low energy’ breakfast (supplying less than 5% of recommended daily calorie intake) double their risk of developing atherosclerosis independently of classical cardiovascular risk factors

3D ultrasound of the right carotid artery. An atherosclerotic plaque is visible as a small protrusion (arrow) in the vessel wall of the internal branch of the proximal carotid artery (bottom), close to the bifurcation. In contrast, the surface of the disease-free external branch (top) is smooth (asterisk).
