Owning A Pet Boosts Brain Power

A new study by the University of Florida reveals that owning a pet can boost your brainpower and improve your memory.

Researcher Dr. Tiffany Bradley says, ”Owning household pets for five years or more produced the most benefit, delaying cognitive decline by 1.2 points over the six-year period of the study compared with the rate of decline in people without pets. These findings provide early evidence to suggest that long-term pet ownership could be protective against cognitive decline.”
