Pets keep humans healthy
Among the studies that prove the health benefits of owning a pet:
> Heart patients with pets are nearly five times more likely to survive a heart attack than those without pets.
> Pets can help humans combat loneliness, depession, and other emotional problems.
> Pet owners have lower cholesterol and triglyceride levels than non-owners.
Just as important, pets can make a person feel loved and appreciated, and serve as role models of how to live life to the fullest. And they’re great listeners on those days when you just need to vent.
