British snorers (and their sleep-deprived mates) rejoiced when a Liverpool doc recently reported that a simple injection of sodium tetradecyl could quiet the throat muscle's vibration in noisy sleepers.

Instead, he suggests singing lessons (to strengthen throat muscles) and the 10-minute in-office Pillar procedure, which stiffens the throat tissue with stitches and tiny polyester rods.
