"snoring is a sign that there is a really narrowed space" says Dr. Sanjay Patel, a sleep disorder specialist at Harvard-affiliated Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. "That happens either in your nasal passages or in the back of your throat."
According to medical research, After people fall asleep, the human body is relaxed, which may be caused by the relaxation of nerve muscles,leads to the decrease of muscle tension and the fall of soft tissue around the upper respiratory tract. The falling soft tissue leads to the obstruction of the respiratory tract. Because the respiratory tract is not smooth, the human body will subconsciously open its mouth to breathe. The purpose of opening its mouth to breathe is to increase the intensity of the air flow. When the air flow enters the narrow respiratory tract When it happens, it will cause the respiratory tract to vibrate, and the sound produced by the vibration is snoring.
So people who are fat, people with loose throat muscles, people with throat inflammation are most likely to snore.
