You may have heard that infants who grow up in households with pets can develop resistance to allergies — and a new study may have nailed down why.
Research suggests that exposure to all sorts of dirt and dander is beneficial in terms of exposing a child's immune system to, and strengthening it against, various allergens; as researcher Ganesa Wegienka put it, "Dirt is good." And children who live with — read: "roll around and play with" — dogs and cats are less likely to become allergic to those animals later in life, as long as the exposure occurred during the first year of life. The study appeared in the journal "Clinical & Experimental Allergy," and followed over 500 kids until age 18; teens who had lived with a cat during their first year had a 48 percent lower risk of developing a cat allergy. Meanwhile, teen boys who had lived with a dog were 50 percent less likely to develop dog allergies — but the rate was not the same for infant/teen girls who had lived with dogs, for reasons researchers still don't quite grasp. (They theorize that baby boys may play with dogs differently.) Keep reading for more details.

Actress and EMA Young Hollywood Board member Emmanuelle Chriqui recently partnered with Green Works to bring awareness to The Reverse Graffiti Project, an epic urban cleaning initiative that reaches beyond the surface. Armed with the plant-based Green Works products, Japanese muralist Mr. Kiji transformed a busy (and very dirty) LA underpass into a beautiful work of art. If Green Works products can erase years of pollution to reveal eye-catching works of art, then imagine what it can do in your home.
Check out the Q&A below with Emmanuelle to learn more about this revolutionary project.
The campaign is all about small, everyday choices making a big impact. What are some of the ways you do this in your day-to-day routine?
I think small changes can be the most realistic because it can ease people in if they are just taking their first steps to be more environmentally conscious. I drive a hybrid car, recycle, take my reusable shopping bags to the store, buy organic and local, avoid using bottled water, among other steps.
The Reverse Graffiti Gallery includes installations from a LA underpass to the Broadway Tunnel in San Francisco; which is your favorite?
I think they are all pretty amazing, and I love the fact that you created art by removing the dirt from the walls in an environmentally sustainable way.
Do you have any tips for people who are wanting to make a change but don't know where to start?
Everyone should try the things they are comfortable with – and home is a good place to start. We have daily green tips on www.ema-online.org to help get you started.

Polo may be all about the ponies, but this weekend young Cocker Spaniel Lupo demonstrated a dog can occasionally steal the spotlight. The pup accompanied his royal parents, Kate Middleton and Prince William, to the Golden Metropolitan Polo Club Charity Cup on Sunday, showing off his leggier look versus the last time we saw him in public. After seeing him share kisses with his pet papa and make friends with the youngest attendees, we hope we'll see much more of him this Summer and beyond!

We have joked many, many times, while checking out at the veterinarian's office, that our cats should get paper routes or jobs at Starbucks to help defray the costs of their care. Two out of three of the felines at Pets HQ are old, and between the senior-wellness checkups ($175 a pop), the specialty food they need for their "dietary issues" ($85 a case), the professional claw-clipper I hire to catch and manicure a surprisingly spry 17-year-old orange tabby . . . it adds up. And that's not counting all the Fresh Step, paper towels to handle cat vomit, catnip, sisal mice, pet-sitters, emergency surgeries because someone thought he was a dog and chewed on a table leg, and so on and so forth. We've never considered sitting down with a pencil and paper and adding up the total cost of the cats over a lifetime, though, because we don't particularly enjoy crying hysterically.Fortunately, Petplace.com saved us — and you — the trouble. Alex Lieber has an interesting piece up about how much it costs owners to "raise" various pets, be it small dogs, big dogs, indoor cats, or outdoor ones, over the lifetime of those pets. And the figures surprised us in several ways. Keep reading to find out the stats.
You may not think of polar bears as a summertime animal, and it's true that these Arctic creatures must adapt as the weather warms and their habitat dramatically retreats. But for one little polar bear, the sun's rays mean a new world to explore as the ice melts away from his home in the Scandinavian Wildlife Park. It's been awhile since we checked in on Siku the orphaned cub, but it appears he's been keeping himself busy over the last few months and growing bigger (but staying cute!) along the way. Here's a roundup of our favorite Siku photos to get your weekend off to a great start!
