    A new study has revealed overweight middle-aged men who smoke are the most likely to snore

    A new study has revealed overweight middle-aged men who smoke are the most likely to snore


    Australia's QIMR Berghofer Medical Research Institute has identified 173 genes linked to snoring, which have previously been linked to respiratory and psychiatric traits.

    Senior author and study leader Dr Miguel Renteria says it's the largest population-wide study of the genetics of snoring, which affects one in three people.

    He says the study showed an 80 percent genetic overlap between snoring and the serious condition of obstructive sleep apnoea.

    Smoking and alcohol consumption were also found to increase the risk for snoring in men and women.
