Your Health Minute
Your personality could put you at risk of being bitten by a dog.
A British study of nearly 700 people found those with a nervous disposition were more likely to be nipped.
In fact, people were the most anxious, had a 23-percent higher risk of getting bitten by a dog than those who were the least neurotic.
The study also found dog owners were three times more likely to be bitten than non-dog owners.
But more than half of bite victims said they had been bitten by a dog they did not know.
