HealthWatch: How Much Sitting Is Too Much; Dogs Sleeping In Your Room
BOSTON (CBS) — We could be sitting ourselves to death, reports WBZ-TV’s Dr. Mallika Marshall. Researchers at Columbia University looked at nearly 8,000 middle age and older adults and found they sat on average 11 to 12 hours a days. They also found that sitting for more than 12 hours on a given day increased the risk of death, regardless of how much they exercised. But people who kept periods of sitting to less than 30 minutes had a lower risk of death. This isn’t the first study to find that sitting is dangerous, but it is the largest to link sedentary time with the risk of death. And now some experts co...

Conclusion This relatively large cross-sectional analysis has found a link between certain measures of breathing problems during sleep and poorer cognitive function in middle-aged to older adults.

Results show that women are more likely than men to have more severe symptoms of depression, trouble sleeping at night, and excessive daytime sleepiness. Women also have a higher degree of difficulty concentrating and remembering things due to sleepiness or tiredness. In contrast, male snoring was more likely than female snoring to force bed partners to sleep in different rooms. (Source: EurekAlert! - Medicine and Health)

You’re not alone. Data from a longitudinal study published in 1993 found that about 44 percent of men and 28 percent of women snore habitually, so this problem is happening in bedrooms across the nation.  Snoring happens when the upper airway muscles relax and constrict air flow through the throat, forcing air through a small space and causing a vibration — think of the way a kazoo or saxophone makes noise.
