TONSILS & ADENOIDS

Hypertrophy (enlargement) of the tonsils
and adenoids is the most common
cause of obstructive sleep apnea in children.

(SOURCE: International Journal Pediatri Otorhinolaryngology--1987)
Your Jaws ~ Your Life (page 84)

About forty years ago it was routine to remove tonsils and adenoids in children. This does not happen today for a number of reasons including surgical risk, insurance issues, law suit issues, and the controversial belief that they are important for a good immune system.

Enlarged tonsils and adenoids can cause chronic airway obstruction and chronic health problems such as bad breath, frequent illness, snoring, bad swallow habits, breathing problems, crooked teeth and jaws, facial deformity, fatigue, sleep disorder, sleep apnea, poor health, high blood pressure, right-side-heart enlargement (cor pulmonale), slow growth, unseen heart damage, heart failure and death.
