If you snore, you’re not alone. According to the National Sleep Foundation, about 90 million Americans are snorers – that’s almost 30% of the population. Although annoying, snoring isn’t dangerous. Other than keeping the people in your house up, it’s just the sound of air struggling to leave your nose and throat.
Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder that affects more than 20 million Americans every year. It's a dangerous disorder because it causes those who have it to stop breathing when they're sleeping at night.
