Kermit has SA
#11
I wonder if humans slept with head lower than the body would SA be eliminated or greatly improved?

Glad the word is getting out there about SA - so thank you Muppets!! Reaches a pretty wide audience so that's great. If it weren't for SA becoming a thing people are getting treated for much more commonly I might not have heard of it and would therefore have been put on meds for Cluster Headaches by my doc. It was I who asked to be tested for SA after he mentioned that.

Thanks Kermit and Miss Piggy!!

Thanks

Maybe that's why they don't live as long as we do.

Actually you know, it is what it isn't.

No, I don't think SA has such a profound effect in this regard. Other factors figure higher in wild animal mortality rates, and each creature has different life spans anyway.
