Going Outside is Healthy Now?

So, it turns out that getting off your sofa and going to this place scientists refer to as “outdoors” can actually be beneficial to your mind and body.  According to this study, “inner-city kids living in neighborhoods with more green space gained about 13% less weight over a two-year period than kids living amid more concrete and fewer trees”

Interesting.  This finding is good news for homeless people.  They are always hanging out at parks.  With that and their portion controlled diets no wonder they always look so svelt.  I could see being homeless making a comeback.

Can you think of anyone else this story is good news for?  If so, leave your thoughts in the comments below.
