Pets may help cut heart disease risk: American Heart Association

May 9, 2013

(Reuters) - Anyone wanting to live longer and cut their risk of suffering
from heart disease might want to consider getting a pet.

The American Heart Association (AHA) issued a scientific statement on
Thursday saying owning a pet may help to decrease a person's risk of
suffering from heart disease and is linked with lower levels of obesity,
blood pressure and cholesterol.
