Snoring: A New Tip-Off To Stroke and Heart Disease
New research conducted by otolaryngologists at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroitfinds that snoring is a bigger risk factor for stroke and heart attack than smoking, being overweight, or high cholesterol. According to research by Robert Deeb, MD and Karen Yaremchuk, MD, snoring can reveal damage to the carotid arteries the arteries that supply oxygen-rich blood to the brain.
