Another reason why animals are good for you!

During the last two weeks in Year 11 we’ve been discussing the value and importance of animals as pets, working animals and farm animals. Students have considered factors like companionship, being members of the family and help for health reasons, as strong reasons why some people place a high level of importance on animals.

Well today a new study shows that growing up on a farm is good for you. ‘Farm kids’ were 54 per cent less likely to have asthma or hay fever and 57 per cent less likely to have allergic nasal symptoms than their urban counterparts.’
