Health Tips / Higher asthma risk for pet owners

The study evaluated the effect of allergens from pets, insects and plants on asthma sufferers. The study reported that while more asthmatics were allergic to allergens from cats, dog allergens were found to cause greater disturbances in lung function measurements for asthmatics.
