Humans are designed to be nose breathers, but somewhere along the way, nose breathing can change to mouth breathing, with dire consequences. Mouth breathing and snoring are both predictors of sleep apnea and many other developmental and sleep-related problems. Human growth hormone is important for both growing children and adults who want to remain young, but mouth breathing may significantly reduce the amount released each night during sleep. Recognizing and treating mouth breathing early will prevent serious problems later.
