This news is based on the following article: Villeneuve PJ, Jerrett M, Su JG, Weichenthal S, Sandler DP. Association of residential greenness with obesity and physical activity in a US cohort of women. Environ Res 2018 ; 160 : 372-384. doi : 10.1016/j.envres.2017.10.005


This study shows that exposure to greenness is positively associated with the level of physical activity and negatively associated with the risk of obesity. It provides much-needed information on the benefits of a green environment for adults.
