Default Snoring Can Raise Cancer Risk Fivefold


http://www.telegraph.co.uk/health/he...five-fold.html

Quote:
Snoring and other types of 'sleep disordered breathing', as it is known, can deprive the body of enough oxygen for hours at a time.
Scientists now believe having low blood oxygen levels can trigger the development of cancerous tumours, by promoting the growth of the vessels that feed them.
People on sleeping tablets can also go into shallow breathing without snoring, and end up with hypoxia(low blood oxygen levels) as well.

Gosh, that's serious. People would need an oxygen mask to wear. They call it a CPAP machine. Getting an ozone machine to add oxygen in the air would help too if that air could get in the lungs of a snorer - which is unlikely.
