Here's the link to Dr. Mercola's article:
Here's the Story at a glance:
~Health benefits associated with gardening include stress relief, improved brain health, relief from depression, better nutrition and, of course, exercise
~When you exercise outdoors, you exercise harder but perceive it as being easier than when exercising indoors. This will encourage you to work out harder than you might otherwise
~Korean researchers have confirmed that gardening can count as moderate-to-high-intensity exercise
~Higher intensity activities such as stirring compost, raking leaves, spreading soil amendments like wood chips, or digging holes can burn up about 400 calories an hour
Let's get out and get dirty my friends & without chemicals, grow what's good for us.
