Why do gardeners live longer (vitamin D, etc.)

From Wellness Momma

There is a lot of evidence, most anecdotal, some scientific, about how gardeners live up to 14 years longer than non-gardeners.

Outline of reasons:

1. Get Enough Vitamin D
2. Play In the Dirt
3. Getting Grounded
4. Stress Relief
5. They Eat Vegetables
6. They Exercise

  1. Typically no pesticides in home gardens
  2. Typically soil in small gardens is not depleted of trace elements such as Magnesium
