Researchers also found that people who snore were more likely to suffer from this arterial thickening than others with more widely known risk factors for cardiovascular disease, including smokers, people who are overweight, and those with high blood pressure and high cholesterol. Researchers examined data from 913 patients who sought treatment at Henry Ford Hospital’s sleep clinic. All the participants were between the ages of 18-50, and none of them had obstructive sleep apnea. Of this group, 54 men and women completed a survey about their snoring histories.

Thickening of the intima-media layers is considered a sign of elevated risk for cardiovascular disease.
