Here’s a very interesting article that talks about how our bodies actually need the natural environment to stay healthy.

“There is something about the natural environment that is biologically part of our system. In a way, we are hard-wired to respond to it. Ecosystem services – even at a local, urban level – by giving people the opportunity to mentally, as well as physically, engage with the natural environment may just be tuning our bodies back into something, biologically, we have evolved to respond positively to.”
