"Forensic psychologist Jeffrey Younggren told Business Insider that research is inconsistent on whether emotional support animals have any positive effect on their owners’ mental health, saying there’s no evidence the animals do anything "other than make somebody happy."

Isn't this the whole point. The pet brings joy into a potentially depressing situation.

I don't know whether they're efficacious or not, but I do know that, here at the airport, I see them all day and they're a big scam. Or, rather, their owners are scamming the airlines. It's crazy and totally out of control.

LOL!! Thanks for the morning chuckle. I wonder who organized those double blind studies. Were they published in peer reviewed journals.:-)
