Psychology Prof says studies suggesting pets make us healthier are flawed
In this editorial, "Fido No Doctor. Neither is Whiskers," published earlier this month in the New York Times, a psychologist questions the validity of studies that indicate that animal owners are happier, healthier people. What rubbish! People who aren't even sick feel better JUST looking at photos of cats and dogs. Take a look at that photo of a puppy (above) or this video of a sheltie and cat play fighting.
