What is Snoring?
Snoring occurs because the muscles in the throat
relax too much, leading to an attempt to breathe through an
small opening in the back of the throat. The result is that the soft
vibrates, producing the sounds of "snoring". The phenomenon is
to happen in anywhere from 30% of women to over 40% of men.
