Exercise in a natural environment can prevent millions of cases of non-communicable diseases, such as type 2 diabetes. A medical study in the UK revealed this. Non-communicable diseases such as heart disease, stroke, cancer, diabetes, and lung diseases account for 74% of deaths worldwide. We also refer to them as chronic diseases, as they do not transfer from one individual to another.

The study found that exercising in natural environments such as beaches and gardens significantly reduced the risk of developing non-communicable diseases such as depression, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, stroke, and bowel and breast cancer.

The World Health Organization said in a report in 2022 that if people do not make physical activity a habit, 500 million new cases of non-communicable diseases may occur between 2020 and 2030. The researchers stated that they believe this is the first time they have examined exercise prevention in a natural environment.

While we concentrated on the six most prevalent non-communicable diseases, we think exercise can guard against a wide range of other illnesses as well, he added. According to the World Health Organization, people between the ages of 18 and 64 should get 150 minutes of moderate exercise per week to maintain good health. However, 27.5 percent of adults worldwide do not.

People who are unable to exercise can improve their health by walking in gardens, the researchers said. The journal Environment International published the results of this research.
