      Hi agja

      No. Not all people snore. Actually a majority of people do not snore. Snoring is caused by vibration of the respiratory organs, soft tissues in the throat, mouth or nose during sleep. Over weight men are more likely to snore. Unlike what we assume, snoring is associated with poor sleep and not good, sound sleep.
