Question Housing hamsters and mice together

Hello HC!
Today I stumbled upon an article claiming hamsters and mice can live together in harmony. Unfourtinately I wasn't able to save the link to the article, but I remember most of it. In summary it stated hamsters are happier with a "companion" and mice can keep hamsters busy and entertained. This contradicts almost everything I've ever learned about housing hamsters To me it seems unnatural and much too risky, as from what I've seen hamsters and mice will fight in the wild. It worries me that people might actually be reading that article and believe it.


Any other opinions on this? Am I just stressing myself out?

You can find anything on the internet if you look, it is a shame some people won't consider how true those things may or may not be though.
