Cats Preventing Asthma?
Good news for cat owners.
According to medical statistics, the incidence of asthma is steadily increasing, with the number of people suffering with this serious condition actually doubling between 1982 and 1992.
The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America reports that an estimated 15 million Americans have asthma, including nearly five million children under the age of 18.

New studies, however, are shedding light and hope regarding cats and asthma, and that’s good news for pet owners and their babies.
