Studies Show That Women Who Own Horses Live 15 Years Longer Than Those Who Don’t
United States.— According to a recent study made by scientists in a university at Virginia, if a woman owns a horse, her life expectancy increases up to 15 years. This was the conclusion that scientists reached after analyzing statistics from 50 countries that included women who had horses and those who don’t.
“In countries like Spain, the life expectancy difference between women who own horses and women who don’t is about 16.5 percent” stated Gary Cockburn, leader of the study.
“In other countries, such as the United States, the difference is about 14.7 percent”, he stated. Several factors influence the result, but in the end, the average is 15 years.
Scientists claim that they still don’t know the reason. They just analyzed that data and this was the result.
“It’s now up to doctors, biologists and / or psychologists to investigate why having horses is so good for women”, concluded Cockburn.
