The effects of snoring on you…and others

Did you know that snoring, which is bothersome for the entire household, can indicate obstructive sleep apnoea? When we sleep, our tongue and tissues at the back of the throat relax, partially blocking the air and vibrating when we breathe and causing us to snore! Certain conditions, such as pregnancy, being overweight, having very large tonsils, allergies or respiratory infections can also be responsible.
