Dr. Ralph Pascualy explains why snoring is bad for your health. When you snore, you are losing the flow of air in your throat. Your brain thinks you are being strangled and it begins to fight. This releases hormones and stimulants, chemicals that increase blood pressure, promote cardiovascular disease, and cause awakening. Overall, snoring impacts a variety of your body's systems.
