Snoring has become a major focus for me in the last 5 years. This seemingly aggravating noise may in fact shorten your life. Poor breathing quality while sleeping has been linked possibly to higher blood pressure, gastric reflux, insulin levels and fatigue. If you are tired when you get up or become tired during the day, snoring or sleep apnea may be ruing your life and your partner's life as well. Remember : Laugh and the whole world laughs WITH you, snore and you sleep ALONE.
