"People who snore heavily can get damage in the throat. The damage can then cause both sleep apnea and swallowing problems, research shows."
"It is to researchers at Umeå university that appeared down in what is perceived as a disturbing element for many: snoring. And then the more powerful the battle."
"But it's not just snarkarens any sängpartner which happens to be bad. Snarkaren myself have often damage to the nerves and muscles in the upper respiratory tract. The damage can be seen on both a structural and a molecular level, according to the researchers."
"the Scientists could see that the people who snore and have developed sleep apnea, i.e. respiratory arrest, loss of nerves and muscle mass of the soft palate. In addition, they saw that the body tried to recreate the damaged muscle fibers, but that they have developed in an abnormal way. This despite the fact that a neurotransmitter, which normally occurs in the healing and the restoration of nerve cells, also were secreted in the muscle fibers."
"the Researchers interpret this as the body is trying to heal the damage caused by snoring, but to the recurring vibrations from the snoring make that the tissue cannot heal properly."
"the Result is a vicious spiral where the snoring is causing the damage and at the same time hampers the healing of the damage, which, in turn, can contribute to the development of sväljstörning and sleep apnea, the researchers write."
"the Research presented in the journal Respiratory Research."
