by-owning-a-dog-you-are-at-24-lower-risk-of-dying-early-study-says

Do you need a reason to buy a dog? How about living longer?


Dr. Caroline Kramer, author of a new systematic review of nearly 70 years of global research published in "Circulation," said that their analysis found having a dog is actually protective against dying of any cause.



The review of the health benefits involved nearly 4 million people in the United States, Canada, Scandinavia, New Zealand, Australia and the UK.


"Dog ownership was associated with a 24% reduction in all cause mortality," said Kramer, an assistant professor in the division of endocrinology and metabolism at the University of Toronto.


What is even more interesting is that "For people who had a heart attack or stroke, having a dog was even more beneficial. They had a 31% reduced risk of dying from cardiovascular disease," Kramer said.


Heart attacks and stroke are the leading causes of death globally, according to the World Health Organization. The benefit was highest for dog owners who lived alone.


In fact, a number of cardiologists believe in the benefits of dog ownership so much they will actually prescribe a dog for their patients, if they believe the person can appropriately care for a pet.
