A writer for The Good Men Project believes if he could have known what we know now about sleeping better, his father could have had a better chance of living longer.

Ever since he died in 1996, I have wondered how such a healthy man could have deteriorated in such a spectacular way. Sure, you might say it was genetics or just bad luck, but still I would wonder. Over ten years later, our lives were changed forever when my wife was diagnosed with sleep apnea. That’s when I began learning everything I could about sleep disorders. I stumbled into a field called sleep medicine dentistry, where dentists treat sleep apnea, to help my wife when she couldn’t tolerate a breathing machine.
