New Study Links Snoring To Your Genetics


A new study from the QIMR Berghofer Medical Research Institute in Brisbane, Australia has identified over 173 genes that can be linked to snoring.


While it is known that snoring is hereditary, this is one of the first studies to be able to identify specific genetic predispositions for snoring risk. Many of which, say the lead researchers in the study, are also linked to certain respiratory and neurological traits.


The study found risk factors for snoring in both men and women, though men were at higher risk, and that it increased with age.






While this study confirms that snoring can be genetic, lifestyle factors play the largest part in the development of sleep conditions, including smoking and alcohol.


The full study was published in Nature Communications Journal.
