Snoring Can Be Blamed by the Shape of Your Head

Look around at your family and see who has a round head and who has a head that is oval. If you consider the results of a new Cleveland study, you'd probably rather have an oval head, or at least sleep next to one.

The study says people with round heads are more likely to snore than those with oval heads. Researchers at Case Western Reserve University of Dentistry say their studies show a person's airway can narrow as the head gets wider. Sleep Apnea, which is an interruption of breathing, is often blamed for snoring, and Sleep Apnea is usually caused by blockage of the airway in the back of the mouth.

If you're a round head, you would hope this study would help others be more understanding about your snoring.
