I have no idea why you are ragging my ass on this one. I only relayed the notion from an interesting documentary I saw about it. I'm not a medic of any kind, therefore I can't counter argue you. Why not take up the debate with those people who are looking at it?

FInally, I never said google was a statistical tool. It was a response to the fact that you said you could not find *any* links about it. I just posted a few from the top, in case they might shed any light on the issue.

Jeez, dude, go pick a fight with someone qualified :-P

@Wayne,

Has anyone mentioned Dust Mites?

One of the commonest causes of the snuffles. Maybe your bed just went critical?

Cheers,

Amazingly, no.  My house is 99% carpeted, so who knows.  I'll look into it, so thanks!

I'd suspect the bed/matress. A typical bed is home to a million or so of these critters and you did say you awake with the snuffles.

Cheers,

JaX

[Edit: Just to rub it in, these mites (plus their debris)can constitute 25% of the weight of a old pillow! Jees!]

Any home with carpet has dust mites, thats why I suggested changing the air-conditioning filters.

I actually change the filters monthly.  I actually washed all my bedclothes yesterday and steam cleaned all the floors.  Didn't seem to make a whole lot of difference, but I do need to buy some new pillows today.
