Snoring: A great tip off for heart disease and stroke!

by , 27 September 2013

If your snoring is keeping your partner up at night, she'll probably do anything to get you to stop. But snoring should be keeping you up too. And once you read this article, it probably will…

It looks like snoring, which you may have just seemed as an annoying nuisance, is actually an alarm bell for something much more sinister.

Revealed the surprising health and artery problems associated with snoring…

Research conducted by otolaryngologists at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit found “snoring is a bigger risk factor for stroke and heart attack than smoking, being overweight, or high cholesterol,” reports Forbes.

The reason?

Well, it’s simple says the MailOnline: “Frequent snorers are more likely to develop narrowed carotid arteries – the main arteries in the neck that supply oxygenated blood to the brain.”

So that explains the stroke risk, but where do the heart complications come from?

The article in the MailOnline continues: “Snoring has also been linked to hardening of the arteries around the heart, which can lead to heart attacks. It's thought this may be due to sleep apnoea. This can increase inflammation in the body, which may contribute to furred arteries.”

And that means if you want to protect your health, you need to listen to your body. Then get your heart and arteries tested. It could save your life.
