Statistics on snoring vary for the UK, with sources claiming between 30% - 50% of adults snore. It is also thought that the likelihood to snore increases as you get older (1). Snoring can also be a sign of bad health and has even been stated as a reason for divorce. Read on to find out exactly what snoring is, why it happens and how you can help stop snoring.

 

What is snoring and why do I snore?

Snoring is a sound (can be loud or soft) that is caused by obstructed air movement during breathing. The obstructions are usually caused by over-relaxed airway muscles or of an accumulation of excess tissue in the airway.

Men are 50% more likely to snore than women and snoring can be an occasional event, or a chronic, ongoing condition.

Causes for snoring include:

 - Taking sedatives such as sleeping pills, cough medicines or antihistamines.
 - Sleeping on your back
 - Drinking alcohol or smoking
 - Being overweight or unfit
 - Age
 - Nasal and sinus problems

Health risks associated with snoring

Snoring can be an indicator of the following (2)(3):

 - Increased risk of diabetes
 - Heart disease
 - High Blood Pressure
 - Being overweight

Snoring can also lead to sleep apnoea. Normally, this is where you stop breathing for a couple of seconds but it can be a potentially life-threatening condition. Often, you may find you wake yourself up with a snorting sound as you clear your airway. This can lead to interrupted sleep and drowsiness during the day.

Snoring can also affect your relationships with a partner whose sleep may be affected due to your condition. A lack of sleep can lead to increased health problems, irritability, decrease in mental ability and more.

 

How to stop snoring

There are many effective ways to stop snoring, it is just a matter of finding the one that’s right for you.

For example:

 - Lose weight
 - Exercise
 - Quit Smoking
 - Avoid alcohol, sleeping pills and sedatives
 - Establish regular sleep patterns
 - Sleeping on your side

Often, a combination of these can successfully stop your snoring.

Asonor, Instant Relief from Snoring - Nasal Spray proven to be 77% effective

July 22, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- A recent study at the University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Medicine and Public Health took into account 1500 people for the past 22 years, it was found that people that snore heavily are at 4.8% higher risk of developing cancerous tumors than non-snorers. It was found that snoring leads to oxygen starvation which in turn promotes the growth of the tumor cells, leading to cancer. All the participants' age, sex, weight and smoking habits were considered during the study.

Dr. Nieto said that now it has been proven that Sleep-Disordered Breathing, which leads to oxygen deprivation, is closely connected with cancer growth which in turn can help patients undergoing cancer treatment to simultaneously take anti-snoring remedies to cure snoring. But the unique element that emerged was that cancer risk was higher in lean people who snored than the obese snorers.

The current results of the sleep disordered breathing (SDB) and snoring study were presented at the International Seminar of the American Thoracic Society and have been published and included in the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine.
