Hamsters are dangerous

The Guardian's Emine Saner reports that keeping cats and dogs has many health benefits. They apparently lower your stress levels, may detect whether or not you have cancerous growths inside you, boost your immune system, and assist those otherwise prone to depression. Hamsters, though, are dangerous, but in a manner that the Guardian chooses to leave unexplained. Be very careful around hamsters.

Well, it's not pleasant when they take vicious chomps out of your fingers, but in the grand scheme of things, that's a really twee sort of danger.

Maybe watching them run on that little wheel elevates stress levels?
