Explanation

Although snoring may be harmless for most people, it can be a symptom of a sleep apnea (especially if it is accompanied by severe daytime sleepiness). Sleep apnea is characterized by pauses in breathing that prevent air from flowing into or out of a sleeping personís airways. People with sleep apnea awaken frequently during the night gasping for breath. Snoring on a frequent or regular basis has also been directly associated with high blood pressure.

 

True or False: Snoring is a common problem, especially among men, but it isn't harmful.
