The Presence of Trees Is linked to Reducing the Risk of Cardiovascular Disease

Not only can trees provide us with oxygen to breathe and help combat the effects of global warming at the same time, their presence has also been linked to our risk of heart disease, a new study has found.

A team of scientists has been analysing the health effects of a lack of foliage, specifically in the city of Detroit, where the emerald ash borer (EAB) beetle has been ripping through trees and causing havoc to the local ecosystem. Based on data pulled from the Women's Health Initiative survey, those in EAB-ravaged areas were 25 percent more likely to suffer from certain kinds of cardiovascular disease.

What makes the data so valuable to researchers is that the EAB beetle has no respect for neighbourhood boundaries or the ages of local residents: because the damage has been so indiscriminate, there's a greater chance that the trees are the root cause of the discrepancies in health.
