Nancy Grace on her program that aired on July 9, 2007 said the following (emphasis added)-
GRACE: They said that Johnny Grunge -- Mike Durham -- he wrestled under the name Johnny Grunge, very, very well-known -- died of sleep apnea. Please. Stop. That`s basically snoring, and you know, not breathing for a few seconds periodically through the night. You don`t die of sleep apnea. That is complete BS.
It is comments like hers that makes my job so hard. When people fail to acknowledge the seriousness of untreated sleep apnea, there are those in denial that will say... it is no big deal, just deal with it.
Not only is the health of the sufferer compromised with increased risk of cardiovascular disease,hypertension and metabolic syndrome (to mention only a few), but so is the health of bed partner and other members of the family.
If you are as alarmed as I am with Nancy Grace's comment, write to her and let her know she is wrong...
