Did you know that sleep Apnea is a risk factor for heart disease? And people with sleep Apnea are more at risk of developing cancer due to lack of oxygen?

It can also contribute to tiredness during the day since brain is waking up ( not you just your brain) every 10 seconds to open the airway hence snoring.
