Snoring, Mouth-Breathing Tots More Likely to Develop Behavioral Problems
Snoring is a sleeping problem associated with a number of health problems such as heart disease, obesity and obstructive sleep apnoea. A new study has also found that snoring leads to mental health problems for young children.
The study was undertaken at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in The Bronx, New York City to study the impact of sleep-disordered breathing on kids' behaviour. Eleven thousand children were studied over a six year period. Sleep disordered breathing was found to peak between 6 month and 18 months. It was concluded that children with sleep disordered breathing developed behavioral problems compared with kids who breathe normally during sleep.
