Nature Improves Health — Wellness Wire

As noted by the BBC, research reported in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health, living near green spaces can make a big difference for your health. The annual rates of 15 out of 24 major physical diseases were significantly lower among those studied who were living closer to green spaces. The biggest difference was found in people’s mental health. The researchers from the VU University Medical Centre in Amsterdam looked at the health records of 350,000 people registered with 195 family doctors across the Netherlands. The health benefits for most of the diseases were only seen when the greenery was within 0.62 miles radius of the person’s home.
