    Default assume that

    Is the following wording acceptable?


    According to the previous paragraphs, we know, we can assume that most of people actually have insomnia. And there are many reasons, such as work, studies or even headache.

    "According to the previous paragraphs, we can assume that most people actually have insomnia."

    The "we know" is misplaced and it is "most people," not "most of people."
