Swedish study: raising a dog or reducing the risk of death from heart disease.

A new study shows that dog people are 23 percent less likely to die of heart disease than others, according to British media.

Owning a dog can reduce the risk of heart disease, according to a Swedish study. A study of 3.4 million people between the ages of 40 and 80 found that owning a dog reduced the risk of heart disease by 23 percent and reduced the risk of death by 20 percent. Previous studies have shown that dogs can ease social isolation and depression, which can increase the risk of heart disease and early death.


Dog owners should have a good anti-pressure response (blood pressure and pulse will not soar), high levels of physical activity and low cholesterol levels. A 2013 statement from The American Heart Association said dog ownership was linked to lower risk of Heart disease. They don’t want to strongly support dogs because most of the research is called observational studies — that is, researchers record their associations, but they don’t prove cause and effect. This means that there are other factors that may explain why people with dogs are healthier than those who keep goldfish.

Epidemiologists is also the author of this latest study topher grace foer (Tove Fall) said that they did their best considering the dog owners and dog owners in the education, existing health and lifestyle. Studies have found that owning a dog has a great positive effect on people who live alone. “It seems that dogs and people living together can reduce the risk of death,” foer said. Dogs inspire people to walk, provide social support, and make people’s lives more meaningful. If you have a dog, you will increase your interaction with others. Of course, owning a dog doesn’t reduce your risk of heart disease when you’re sitting on a couch eating fatty foods. A toy dog that looks cute doesn’t help either.

Foer’s research suggests that having a retriever or a beagle is best for health. “Sweden has one of the lowest rates of dog ownership in Europe,” he said. “perhaps through this study people will recognize the importance of dogs and increase their acceptance of dogs.”
