Sleep Swallowing Spider Myth

Contrary to popular belief, you do not swallow an between four to six spiders a year in your sleep.

There are currently no scientific or medical records or literature to support this myth.  For a sleeping person to swallow even one live spider would involve so many highly unlikely circumstances that for practical purposes it can be ruled out as a possibility.  Sleep well tonight!
