O.k. this one came up at lunch:
We were talking about obstructive sleep apnea, the condition where (generally) fat people with intense snoring problems literally block their own air passages when they relax and fall asleep due to all their own excessive weight forcing the bronchi closed.
Then someone suggested maybe even the tongue gets fat in the morbidly obese and slides back in the throat, causing blockage problems as well, which is the REAL question here. If you get fat, does your TONGUE gain weight too, or it one of those things like your eyes, ears, etc. that stay the same (or about the same) weight as your waistline expands?
