A new study by researchers from Australia, for the first time, has demonstrated that objectively measured snoring, without more serious sleep apnea, does not increase mortality or cardiovascular disease.
A new study suggests that high levels of noise pollution could put one at risk of annoyance or sleep disturbance, causing severe health consequences.

A new study claims that a large number of women are affected by sleep apnea contrary to the common notion that the condition predominantly affects males. Obstructive sleep apnea is a condition wherein the patients experience abnormal pauses in breathing or instances of abnormally low breathing during sleep.
