Living on a Tree-Lined Street Close to a Park Boosts Your Heart Health
According to a recent study, living on a tree-lined street close to a park may protect you from heart disease, stroke, and premature death.
For the study, a team of researchers analyzed the heart health of more than 400 people across the USA with the help of urine and blood samples. The analysis showed that people who live in green areas have healthier hearts, a higher capacity to repair blood vessels and less stress.
