National Stop Snoring Week 19 – 24 April 2010
On-line interactive house to premier during National Stop Snoring Week 2010.
There are many reasons why people snore but one of the major contributors to snoring is nasal congestion caused by allergy. Nasal allergy or allergic rhinitis, affects 20-40% of the population. It is a condition in which the lining of the nose swells causing an obstruction in the airway. This makes breathing at night difficult and often leads to snoring.
There are many sources of allergy within the home that may lead people to snore. We may think the bedroom is the worst culprit with house dust mites running rampant within our mattresses, quilts and pillows. But in a typical home there are substances in every room that have the potential to cause allergy. Recent research even cited our pets as a cause of snoring as they increase airborne particles that encourage airway inflammation and spread infectious bacteria.
This year during National Stop Snoring Week, The British Snoring & Sleep Apnoea Association will be scrutinising our homes to demonstrate how our most innocent of possessions can be the cause of snoring.
