Adverse affects of snoring on health

Snoring is strange scaring sounds when air cannot flow freely pass through the airway as you breathe in and out during sleep. Davis et al estimated that at least 30% of the adult population snore. This problem increases with age, and over the age of 60 it affects over 50% of people, including about 60% of males and 40% of females. (1,2)

When the air flow stops and these strange scaring sounds begins at the same moment the body releases stress or anxiety hormones, which is associated with many diseases including Obesity. Experts says barbarous cycles of sleep deprivation results in weight gain which in turn makes the condition worsen and leads to heart disease (the leading cause of death in the United States) stroke and high blood pressure.
Bourjeily et al found out in her paper that symptoms of Sleep-Disordered Breathing (SDB)in pregnant females are associated with adverse pregnancy, delivery and fetal outcomes.(3)
Habitual sounds while sleeping has independent association with diabetes & cardiovascular disease.
 It can also increase the risk of type 2 diabetes, liver problems and metabolic syndrome, arrhythmias, Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), Mental Health issues, Headache, less mollified with sexual desires.(4)
