ABSTRACT
The article presents a study at the University of Sydney which reveals that snoring may trigger asthma by allowing allergen-laden mucus from the upper airway to enter the lung airways. In addition to the link with asthma, snoring can be a sign of sleep apnea, which can disrupt a child's sleep cycle and may contribute to learning and behavior problems
