  • So…I’ve noticed something very ominous happening lately. I have friends from a variety of backgrounds, variety of age-ranges….and different levels of health and fitness. And almost all of them have been going in for “sleep studies” and stuff. Just within the past 3 years or so. Not because they think anything is wrong with them, but because their doctors suggest it. The term “sleep apnea” has been popping up so much lately, I am honestly wondering if there’s some kind of conspiracy. Don’t you think this is being OVER-DIAGNOSED? Modern humans have been around for over 200,000 years. Don’t you think we’d have sleep down by now? Sure, our diets and lifestyles have changed, but just because you snore at night, or breathe erratically from time-to-time….doesn’t mean you need to be treated for something. Why are doctors so eager to throw pills at stuff?
