    My generation knew this without being told by a study. Why do we believe our own common sense is no longer valid in making life choices and decisions???

    I'm waiting for the study that suggests not eating causes hunger, and not breathing causes death. I'm curious what the findings will be.

    That's a no brainer! Of course growing up surrounded by nature is better for us than growing up surrounded by concrete!

    I think it is true Sharon, even green areas within a city. The Danish , like many in Europe and Scandinavia ride bikes everywhere. While taking a bus from the airport in Copenhagen to the port for our cruise this summer, the Danes were riding their bikes home from work and school even in a light rain. Many made it ahead of us with traffic.

    Per forza, noi SIAMO natura, anche se ce ne siamo allontanati e ce ne dimentichiamo.

    The thing is, do we really need studies to figure these things out?
