				  <ul>
<li>More than half of the people who have this condition are overweight.</li>
<p>
<li>Sleep Apnea is more common in men. One out of 25 middle-aged men and 1 out of 50 middle-aged women have sleep apnea.</li>
<p>
<li>Sleep apnea becomes more common as you get older. At least 1 out of 10 over the age of 65 has sleep apnea. Women are much more likely to develop sleep apnea after menopause.</li>
<p>
<li>African Americans, Hispanics and Pacific Islanders are more likely to develop sleep apnea that Caucasians.</li>
<p>
<li>If someone in your family has sleep apnea, you are more likely to develop it.</li>
<p>
<li>People who have small airways in their noses, throats, or mouths also are more likely to have sleep apnea. Smaller airways may be due to the shape of these structures or allergies or other medical conditions that cause congestion in these areas.</li>
<p>
<li>Small children often have enlarged tonsil tissues in the throat. This can make them prone to developing sleep apnea.</li>
<p>
<li>Other risk factors for sleep apnea include smoking, high blood pressure, and risk factors for stroke or heart failure.</li>
                   </ul>
