Important Snoring Facts

If incessant snoring constantly quashes your dreams of silent nights, there are a few facts that you need to know.

Snoring affects people of all ages, all over the world. There are an estimated 40 million snorers in the United States alone. In the United Kingdom the figure is around 15 million, with the total climbing to over 15 million in Germany. Across the world, snoring caused by nasal airway blockages afflicts more than a billion people.

Research has provided clear insight into the many problems of snoring. An estimated twenty percent of men in their early thirties snore, compared to nearly five percent of women in the same age bracket. By the time they reach their sixties, these numbers climb significantly, to sixty percent of men and forty percent of women.

Understanding Your Metabolism – explained for dummies.

The Catabolic and Anabolic Indices are composites of all the individual component scores in the blood test that indicate catabolic and anabolic activity.

Catabolic processes breakdown body tissue. Anabolic processes build body tissue. It is a balance between these processes that insures health. Excesses or deficiencies in either result in symptoms, and eventually chronic disease. An Anabolic Index above 20 or a Catabolic Index below -20 means you have an excess in the anabolic or catabolic processes.
