Being a dog owner helps our health. Would you ever have said that? How many times, talking to friends, did we say that we could not live without our dog? Well, a study shows that this is the case.
According to a recent study, published in the American Heart Association’s Circulation journal, being a dog owner reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease by 24% and therefore definitely improves our health.
This is probably related to the fact that those who own a dog and take care of it tend to engage in more physical activity, take long walks and then improve their health.
Is it enough to own a dog to live long and healthy? Obviously not. The study, in fact, considers only some aspects of the people analyzed, without taking into account their eating habits or their physical conditions.
What seems certain, however, is that sharing our daily life with a dog can improve our existence. Animal lovers will be pleased! This study, however, may also push the most skeptical to choose to adopt a puppy and share his life with him.
Other studies will certainly be conducted, but these results are certainly encouraging and can only make us love our dogs even more.
Of course, more work needs to be done but now we can say and taking care of a dog really improves our life. It is not just a suggestion. We just have to wait for other news to really understand how being a pet owner can affect our lives and our health.
It cannot be denied, however, that the first results of the studies conducted are very encouraging and therefore scientists will work so much on this in the coming years.
