Dogs May Protect Kids From Allergies

Infants in Homes With 2 or More Dogs May Be Less Likely to Wheeze WebMD 12/5/06 "Infants who live in a house with multiple dogs may be less likely to develop allergies later in life, according to a new study..."Our bodies are programmed to produce allergic responses early in life," says David Bernstein, MD, professor of immunology at the University of Cincinnati, in a news release. "But there are environmental factors like bacterial endotoxins that may modify the immune system and block development of allergies early in life."

Very encouraging to us dog owners who are expecting.
