On 11 October 2017 The Globe and Mail reported:
A new study suggests having daily exposure to trees and other greenery can extend your life. Dan Crouse of the University of New Brunswick, along with other researchers across Canada and the United States, studied 1.3 million Canadians in 30 cities over an 11-year period. Researchers took into account the amount of trees, plants, shrubs, and other vegetation within 250 metres of an individual's home and created estimates of daily greenness exposure, he said. Crouse said he had heard anecdotal stories from people who said their stress level was reduced after spending time with nature, but he was surprised at the impact that green space can have.
Global Good News service views this news as a sign of rising positivity in the field of health, documenting the growth of life-supporting, evolutionary trends.
Having green space around your home has greater benefit than weekly trips to the park, he said, calling it an important message for city planners.
The full findings of the study are published in this month's [October] issue of The Lancet Planetary Health.
