It’s Official: How Snoring Can Kill You
You may read that title, scratch your head, and say, “How can an annoying sound actually kill you?”
Some might even assume it is a joke, but it’s not. Snoring affects your health in such a huge way that it can be taking time off your life every night you sleep. There are serious health risks for people who snores.
How serious can snoring be? Studies have shown that snoring can be symptomatic of, or result in, more serious afflictions. These include gastroesophageal reflux disease, headache, loss of bladder control, decreased sexual satisfaction, and weight gain.
But worst of all, snoring could lead to cancer and heart disease. If you snore, ask your doctor about it. You never know if it could lead to something else.
The results of a couple of long-term studies on sleep apnea were revealed in the USA in 2012. Both studies focus solely on how the disruption of oxygen flow associated with sleep apnea and snoring effects long-term health.
I strongly recommend that you read these two articles:
- Snoring and Heart Disease — This covers a six-year study proving the link between the two conditions.
- Snoring and Cancer — The findings for a 22-year study are reviewed in this article.
How I Benefited from Controlling My Snoring
I had learned to just live with my snoring. As far back as I can remember, I was the topic of jokes amongst friends and it really did not bother me. When I met my wife, I became even more relaxed in my condition because she was a snorer, too.
Then, one day I read an article about how snoring affects your health. I really did not want to believe it. I thought there must be something more to it, so I started doing my own research about snoring and sleep apnea.
The more I learned the more horrified I became. I had no idea what this seemingly harmless condition was doing to my health, so I have to assume that a lot of people visiting my site have no idea what the long-term side effects are either.
Not only was I worried about my health; I was concerned about how the snoring was affecting my relationships. Was I short with my wife, loved ones, and friends because I was not getting enough quality sleep? Is this why I often felt like I was dragging all day at work?
The first article I had read that piqued my interest about snoring and diminished health-focused a lot on overweight snorers.
So, although I was intrigued enough to do a little research, I was not too scared because I have never been overweight.
Unfortunately, I quickly learned that you do not have to be carrying around extra pounds for snoring to damage your health.
Now that we have both controlled our snoring, these issues are a thing of the past. You cannot imagine how good that feels, but I can tell you that you will feel like a brand-new person.
Long-term Health Benefits
As I said earlier. I was beyond scared when I started researching the long-term health effects. It definitely gave me a swift kick in the behind to find a product that would stop my snoring.
Now we both have peace-of-mind knowing that we have reduced our risk of serious medical conditions, including:
It is now proven that snoring is directly related to cancer. Do not forget to read my article about the study proving this.
Again, I have included a thorough article about this connection. It is really important that you read it, so you understand just how dangerous snoring is.
Did you know that in America, stroke is the fourth most common cause of death? Well, did you know that snoring puts you at greater risk? According to the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention, stroke kills 130,000 Americans annually. This is I in every 19 deaths!
It is no secret that snoring causes high blood pressure. This was proven many years ago and it is probably one health effect that you are familiar with because there has been so much discussion over it. High blood pressure increases your risk for heart attack, stroke, chronic heart failure, and kidney disease.
Snoring is one of the first symptoms of this vent’ dangerous condition. An individual with sleep aponia literally stops breathing multiple times through the course of a night, which cuts off the oxygen supply to the brain. Sleep aponia increases your risk for diabetes, heart failure, stroke, high blood pressure, heart attacks, irregular heartbeat, and ADHD.
I can’t stress enough how important it is that you read my articles proving the link between snoring and both cancer and heart disease. As a snorer, you can probably relate to a lot of what is said in this article.
Stopping your snoring will provide immediate benefits and reduce your risk for long-term deadly medical conditions.
