A research has revealed that snoring is a killer and chances of contracting cancer are fivefold more in those who snore – this has been reported in The Telegraph dated 21st of May 2012.
Snoring is a state of the body when one unknowingly emits noises through his nostrils when he is asleep – the one who snores never knows when or how he snores and, in fact, does not believe that he disturbs others in his sleep.
Snoring is a type of ‘sleep disordered breathing’ and it deprives the body from enough amounts of oxygen. This low level of oxygen in the blood can, in turn, trigger development of cancerous growth because such a situation would promote the spread of cancer.
Obviously, the question arises – how to stop snoring.
Dr Javier Nieto led the study on snoring and snorers and the results were presented at the annual conference of the American Thoracic Society in San Francisco.
