What's the ONE Thing That Will Make Your Kids Healthier?



A new study suggests that young children who grow up in homes with pet dogs have fewer respiratory illnesses than those who don't. So you know what that means...everyone go adopt a dog today!!  :)

The researchers in Finland found that the young kids who grew up with dogs in the home were healthy 81 percent of the time, compared to 64 percent for those who grew up without them. Cats were also shown to have a beneficial health effect, but to a lesser degree than dogs. The health benefit is believed to come from pet dogs exposing children to safe, low levels of bacteria and germs, helping to inoculate them against more serious illnesses.
