My friend has seasonal affective disorder (the other SAD!). He got a sunlamp and uses it to read with. He reads daily so it works out well for him. He said it has helped tons with his SAD. I suspect the only ones well adapted to low sunlight... (more)

How important is this. Right now I live in the northeast and all the rankings have my city low in air quality. Is it worth it to move to a city that ha much higher quality air? Does anyone have links to studies?

Just talking about cars: Let's see, air in the paleolithic age had few exhaust fumes. Didn't Fred Flintstone have a car pulled by dinosaurs or something? I live in a rural area of Spain, but of course families have at least one car, if not two.... (more)

I think its very important. I make a conscious effort to get as much fresh air as I can each day, which is pretty easy for me due to my close proximity to the ocean. It doesn't matter how healthy you eat if you breathe recycled and toxic fumes... (more)

Sound, it could be fluorescent lights, EMFs, petro-chemical fragrances, mold in the building, and many other things. Some of us are more sensitive to unhealthy environments than others. Two more examples of toxic things in buildings: drywall... (more)

Outside = nature, fresh air, enhanced mood, sun (vitamin D3), God's creation, wind, breeze, etc... Inside = house pollens, house toxins, dust, no sun, limited movement, etc... There could be positives and negatives in each, but I'm stating the... (more)
