Sleep apnea can be treated; men and women who snore loudly, especially if pauses in the snoring are noted, should consult a physician.

  • Research has linked sleep with memory processing, emotional stability and even cleansing.
  • Most animals have their own circadian rhythm, or body clock. Even the cells in the body have a rhythm, so it's vital for organisms to have a way to sync these.
