New therapeutic benefits in the practice of gardening

Canada - An article in La Presse newspaper announced the discovery of new health benefits in the practice of gardening.

The mycobacterium, Mycobacterium vaccae would have indeed the virtue of stimulating the human immune system. Present in all the gardens in the dust and mud, this organism would also increase the rate of serotonin acting on the regulation of our mental health.

For Professor Lowry, a researcher at the University of Bristol and author of this discovery, the virtues of the bacterium are equivalent to those of an antidepressant. However, the mechanisms causing these effects are still unknown.

Gardening is practiced by an adult on two in Quebec. After walking and cycling, gardening is one of the most appreciated physical activity.
