High blood pressure. High cholesterol. Chronic fatigue. These symptoms and more can be signs of untreated sleep apnea. “Given that obesity has gone up substantially in this country, a lot of patients are suffering from undiagnosed sleep apnea. It’s not necessarily caused by a higher BMI; it could be an anatomical issue as well,” says Dr. Reza Movahed, a surgeon at Oral Facial Surgery Institute & Implant Center. “They’re dealing with all these symptoms—or if they are diagnosed, they have to go through the huge lifestyle change of having a CPAP, which is a device that keeps them breathing at night.”

Let me just start off by saying I love Liam Neeson. I think he is an extremely talented and wildly underrated actor. Plus, I always attributed his personal tragedy (wife Natasha Richardson was killed in a skiing accident in 2009) as a contributing factor to his shift in genre preference. The guy went from Kinsey and Schindler’s List to The A-Team and Taken 2 (and 3).

His window as an action star was closing and he intended to milk it for every dime. I’m paraphrasing, of course. Well, that certainly explains things.
