Pet Owners: Live Longer & Healthier?

October 22, 2008

How Stuff Works weighs in on the subject of the health benefits of pet ownership, here. We’ve written about this topic before and there are dissenting opinions of precisely how much of a benefit there may be.

When looking at this I think it is wise to always remember these words of Bertrand Russell from 1959:

“When you are studying any matter never let yourself be diverted either by what you wish to believe, or by what you think would have beneficial social effects if it were believed. Look only and solely at what are the facts.”



Got something to say?
