A long-term study conducted at Tel Aviv University found that heart patients who live in a 'greener' environment have a lower risk of mortality compared to those who live in a 'non-green' environment. The study examined thousands of heart patients who underwent bypass surgery and followed them over a period of more than a decade. The researchers cross-referenced the patients' residential address data with data from NASA's Landsat satellites to accurately account for the amount of greenery in their surroundings. The results showed that patients who lived in a very green environment had a lower risk of mortality on average by seven percent compared to those who lived in a non-green environment.
