Snoring is a Nefarious NapStealer, Too

Nefarious NapStealers Obstuct Airways to Cause Sleep Problems
Snoring (14/365)

Recent studies have shown that snoring is not only bad for the person snoring, but can also cause sleep deprivation in the person who shares a bed with the snorer. That’s my interpretation of the following summary of the study:

“We have previously identified heavy snoring as an independent risk factor for carotid atherosclerosis. In order to explore the hypothesis that snoring-associated vibration of the carotid artery induces endothelial dysfunction (an established atherogenic precursor), we utilized an animal model to examine direct effects of peri-carotid tissue vibration on carotid artery endothelial function and structure.
