If 1 in 5 Canadians suffer from sleep apnea, then there should be much more money headed for sleep research in the near future. From CTV:
It’s well known that the severity of sleep apnea is tied to obesity and that obese individuals are more likely to consume more fat and cholesterol. But this new study revealed that severe sleep apnea symptoms affected a person’s food intake regardless of body weight.
