Men benefit more from local green space
Research from the Universities of Edinburgh and Glasgow looked at the availability of green spaces, such as parks, playing fields and woodlands, in urban neighbourhoods across the
Results showed that men living in the greenest neighbourhoods were about 10% less likely to die from lung problems than those in the least green neighbourhoods.
The study, which looked at statistics for 29 million working age adults, is the first to explore the link between green space and health across all urban areas in the UK.
We know from other studies that women tend to use green spaces less than men and are less likely to use them for exercise, particularly if the green space doesn?t feel safe. That might be an explanation. Further work is needed to investigate this.
