The results of a study conducted at the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center has found that the children of parents who snore may be three times more likely to develop the habit themselves. Additionally, researchers discovered that children with allergies are twice as likely to start snoring.
“We found that snoring was associated with presence of allergic sensitization – a condition called atopy,” said Maninder Kalra, a corresponding author of the study.
Studies in older children and adults have shown that people who snore are more than three times per week can lead to behavioral problems, as well as cognitive deficits and cardiovascular complications. Scientists are now recommending that children be tested for obstructive sleep-disordered breathing, most commonly expressed by snoring relatively early in life.
Those who are trying to reduce their snoring may want to consider taking dietary supplements, like those offered by Dr. Newton’s Naturals.
