Is there someone sneaking around giving people lobotomies.

Come on people, trees and plant life absorb carbon dioxide and in return give oxygen.
We absorb oxygen and give out carbon dioxide.

I find it hard to comprehend that it has required a university study to prove that trees in our local environment improve our health.

Re: Trees and Human Health May Be Linked
I was bullied as a little kid and when my mom picked me up from school I literally jumped out of the car at home and ran into the woods. One of the only places I felt really safe. The trees calmed me down and I still take long walks 20 years later. Very important to me.

Re: Trees and Human Health May Be Linked
Evidence is increasing from multiple scientific fields that exposure to the natural environment can improve human health.

In an analysis of 18 years of data from 1,296 counties in 15 states, researchers found that Americans living in areas infested by the emerald ash borer, a beetle that kills ash trees, suffered from an additional 15,000 deaths from cardiovascular disease and 6,000 more deaths from lower respiratory disease when compared to uninfected areas. When emerald ash borer comes into a community, city streets lined with ash trees become treeless.

Great article, but I am amazed it took them this long to figure it out. If they are any kind of scientist, they should have known. At least they could do, was a little history search and they would have got it right off!

Re: Trees and Human Health May Be Linked
If people were not Idiotic Creatures they would understand the life important value of trees. Not only clean air, but woods connection to water,health of rivers, lakes, connection to healthy earth.
In previous religions such as Druidism , and Aria religion, Trees were considered SACRED, as live beings. NOT EVEN ONE LIEF WAS ALLOWED TO BE CUT FROM THE TREES.

Woods are connected with human civilization itself. In previous epoch THE MIDDLE EAST WAS GREEN BASE. Than trees were cut down, and whole civilization moved to North Medditeranian, which was rich in woods. After destroying the woods, civilization moved to western Europe. Logical point is that when woods and trees are cut down , climate become more dry and cruel. On the long run people move to another wooden and wet climate.

There was one very famous historian in Persian time. He explain Persian lands as Paradise Garden , with wet lands, with woods, with large number of animals. Actually the word Garden have origin from Persia.

Today with the help of Human Stupidity and Ignorance, in this parts of Iran, not only there is deserts, but not even one animal can live there.

If humans were just more intelligent , they would make green all the deserts in the world. They would have much more resources and food. They would understand like ancient teachings stated, that water is connected to plants, and communicate with them.

More time will pass , till human morons understands the natural laws. This ridiculous liberal capitalism (exploiting the nature for profits) is just a small pox decease of a childish humanity stage of evolution.

Your great mistake is to talk about humanity as a homogenous mass.

Many many people love trees but there's the short-sighted elite and the bank industry that demands profit whatever it takes. I hate when people say that humanity is stupid while there are always evolved minorities inside humanity. (like GLP-people)

It'll NEVER come a time (not in a million years, maybe later) when the evolved part of humanity will be in majority. There were many civilisations before us, they come and went but NOTHING really changed.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 32375749


I found it 'fascinating' that they linked the increased cardiovascular deaths to the beetle! CVD is number one cause of death globally.

Yes we all know how important trees are to the environment and our well being.

But normally those deaths would have been linked to an unhealthy lifestyle, prevented by eliminating risk factors such as tobacco use, high blood pressure, unhealthy diet/obesity, lack of exercise.

You never see anything about lack of trees on those list of risk factors!

Again great article OP!

Re: Trees and Human Health May Be Linked
It has to be connected , people evolved around nature , they had to adapt that nature gave positive benefits on health.

Those individuals that received no or negative benefit from nature where selected out gradually.

If anyone believes in evolution he must have no doubts.

Again, someone who missed the point :)

It's about the link between the beetles, trees and CVD - the number one cause of death globally.

Based on this study, perhaps 'lack of trees' can be added to the medical text books - CVD risk factors - along with obesity, smoking, unhealthy diet, etc.

Thanks for this post, OP!

Trees take in lots of pollution (not to mention lots of water, which prevents flooding). They also put out fresh oxygen, which we breath. Trees help control noise pollution, clean the soil, absorb carbon dioxide, and help keep us cool in the heat.

We have a tree in the living room, and feel so lucky to have it there - trees rock!

When my mum came to visit the xmas before last she always loves tinkering in the garden...

I have a lemon an and lime tree in pots but they just never fruit.

Well, mum watered them and talked to them (I watched her through the window lean into each one as she spoke).

Well wouldn't you know it...they doubled their size in a matter of weeks.
 Quoting: trailingedge


Ahh thats good that she knew to do that! There are quite a few studies on this topic if you search on it for a little while!

Here is a fun little article on it

[link to st-james.hubpages.com]

From that article...
"Dr. Milstein believed that exposing the plants to soothing music could help them to grow several times faster...dammit! and all this time I've been using Miracle Grow. But guess what those lab stoner's studies had confirmed? That's right! Plants subjected to soft, classical music grew towards the sound, but that plants subjected to hard rock music often withdrew from the music, eventually the plants would wither and die..."
