Scientists: pets will protect children from allergies and obesity
During a scientific experiment, Canadian scientists managed to find out that contact with pets will protect children from developing allergies and obesity at an older age.
However, starting a friendship is from the earliest years – with diapers.
The most "useful" were those animals that have wool. Specialists monitored the health status of children for 3 years. Under the scrutiny of experts were 746 children.
Dogs turned out to be the best pets: in 70% of cases, healthy children lived with dogs. The fact is that a special microorganism is found in animal hair, which reduces the likelihood of developing these diseases.
Scientists believe that you should not get rid of animals when a baby appears: on the contrary, it is worth getting pets.
