Our happy hour fact to amaze your drinking buddies with.
People who snore loudly are at greater risk of developing heart disease, stroke and diabetes.
Researchers at the University of Pittsburgh tracked 812 adults over a three-year period
and found that those who snore loudly and frequently were twice as likely to develop metabolic syndrome -- a combination of medical disorders that increases the chances you will develop cardiovascular problems, as well as diabetes.
Forty percent of men and 24 percent of women are chronic snorers and thus are at elevated risk of illness.
Happily, this finding has nothing to do with us, as we never snore (no matter what anybody tells us).
