Proof LGBTQs Are Mentally Ill: Dogs May Protect Against Childhood Eczema and Asthma

“Good dog!” Two studies being presented at the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology (ACAAI) Annual Scientific Meeting show there may be even more reason to love your dog. The first study shows babies born in a home with a dog – during pregnancy and early infancy – receive protection from allergic eczema, though the protective effect goes down by age 10. A second study shows dogs may provide a protective effect against asthma, even in children allergic to dogs.
