Do you have a dog? These are the scientific benefits that prove once again that he is the best man's best friend

The controversy between those who have a cat and those who have a dog continues and is keen on which four-leg is "better", but eventually we all feel beautiful that we cherish and care for a pet. However, know that there are some scientifically proven reasons that the dog is the best friend of man.

Get sick less often

If we believe ads for detergents, humanity is in a war against microbes - and we must not stop until we eliminate them all. In fact, our extensive disinfection makes us sicker, as our body is exposed to a mixture of smaller microbes and so all our microbes are disrupted. Fortunately, the dogs are full of germs! The presence of a dog results in many different bacteria entering the home and therefore its inhabitants. In turn, people with dogs seem to get sick less often and less seriously than people - especially children - who have cats or have no pets at all.

You are more resistant to allergies

While the dog's hair can irritate people who are predisposed to allergies, children who grow up in a dog house are less likely to develop allergies during their lifetimes. Benefits can be started during pregnancy. A study published in Microbiome in 2017 found that bacteria were exchanged between women who had pets (mainly dogs) during pregnancy and their children, regardless of how they were born or if the child was breast-fed and even if the animal it was not home after birth. The children examined had two bacteria, Ruminococcus and Oscillospira, which reduce the risk of common allergies, asthma and obesity, and were less likely to develop eczema.

You have a firmer heart

The care of a dog generally appears to be associated with better heart health. Only a dog's licking reduces heart rate and blood pressure. A 2017 study in China found a relationship between dog ownership and reduced risk of coronary heart disease, while other studies suggest that pet owners have slightly lower cholesterol and are more likely to survive after a heart attack.

You will be happier

Dog owners are less likely to suffer depression than those without a pet. Even for those who are clinically depressed, pet care can help them avoid a depressive episode. As the care of a dog requires a routine and forces you to be at least a little active, dog owners are more likely to interact with others and have an increased sense of well-being while treating their pet. Interaction with the dog and the love it generously gives can also help people have a positive mood. Even the simple look at your pet increases the amount of oxytocin, the chemical in the brain that causes wellness.

Your dog can ... detect the cancer

Your dog could save your life: it seems our dogs have the ability to smell cancer in the human body. There are a lot of stories about dogs that smelled or crippled an olive tree or a bruise in their owners' body until they could check it out and discover that it was carcinoma. These unofficial data have been supported by scientific studies and some dogs have been trained to locate cancer.
