According to new scientific research, having a puppy at home can save us from allergies. The immunology project was coordinated by Susan Lynch, an associate professor with the Division of Gastroenterology at UC San Francisco, and Nicholas Lukacs, a professor with the Department of Pathology at the University of Michigan. The multi-disciplinary group of researchers from UCSF, the University of Michigan, Henry Ford Health System and Georgia Regents University, discovered that exposure to dog dust reduced the risk of young mice developing allergies.
