Black Death from sleeping with your pets
A recent UC Davis study has proven that sleeping with your pets can increase your chance of getting Black Death. According to the news report, 60% of American households have at least one pet, and several of the owners sleep with their pets.
There are several mixed reviews regarding this recent study due to varying opinions about a pet's role in a family. Although pets can carry Black Death, many people believe the healthy benefits of having a pet (emotional attachment, etc) outweigh the risks.
So how can you avoid Black Death but continue to cuddle with Fluffy? Wash your hands, and take your pet to the vet regularly.
