Thirty percent of adults over the age of 30 snore. This may not seem like a large percentage, yet it equates to over 37 million people snoring on a regular basis according to the National Sleep Foundation.
While some may snicker and ignore it, snoring is no laughing matter. Even mild to moderate snoring can be related to heart disease, reduced sexual function, and depression. Other problems include increased risk of stroke, warns sleep medicine expert Karl Doghramji, MD, medical director of the Sleep Center at Thomas Jefferson University and Hospitals in Philadelphia.
