Aside from being annoying to anyone trying to catch a few Zzzzzsss near you, snoring can be quite deadly, according to a study featured in the New York Times. Scientists think snoring can lead to cancer!
Scientists explain that your body does not get enough oxygen when you snore and having low blood oxygen levels can trigger the growth of cancerous tumors.
The study found that people with severe sleep disordered breathing were almost five times more likely to develop cancer than people who didn’t have trouble breathing in their sleep.
So, that’s a good reason to go visit a doctor today to get those nasal passages fixed! It could end up saving your life!
