  • Why You Most Likely Snore and What You Can Do to Stop

    Studies show that 55% of adults will snore at some point in their lives, either occasionally, or all the time. So, it's more than likely that even if you don't snore, you know someone who does. Generally speaking, snoring occurs when the tissues in our throat relax to the extent where they partially obstruct our airways.
