Ever wondered if your pet contributes to your health? This episode reviews data that evaluates children from households with pets versus those without. Included in this discussion, we look at the impact of pets on our immune system and the prevalence of allergies in our modern day life.
Other details in this conversation:
- Children who grow up in households with dogs have a lower risk for developing autoimmune illnesses like asthma and allergies.
- Children born by Caesarean Section (CS) in the absence of household pets, reported a twofold higher risk of obesity at the age of 2 in CS-delivered infants compared to those born vaginally.
