Raising children in a green environment reduces ADHD



A research study by the Danish University of Aarhus revealed that children who grew up in residential areas surrounded by green spaces were less likely to have ADHD than those who grew up in areas unreachable by nature.


According to a report by the journal Neuroscience, the green space around children's homes may be important for ADHD risk, a team of researchers from Aarhus University studied how green space around housing affects the risk of children and adolescents developing ADHD.


"Our findings show that children who are exposed to less green surroundings in their early childhood neighborhood, which we define as lasting up to age five, have an increased risk of receiving an ADHD diagnosis," said Maleny Thijsin, one of the researchers behind the study. Children surrounded by the highest level of greenery. "


ADHD is one of the most common psychiatric diagnoses among children and it affects people with ADHD in different ways. The cause of some children with ADHD is still not fully known. ADHD may be hereditary, but other factors may play a role. Also, for this reason, there are strong arguments for research into the causes of children developing a diagnosis, one of the conditions that has been of interest to research is children's access to green spaces, as previous studies have found an association with children's mental well-being and cognitive development.


The study used data on addresses of more than 800,000 people as well as information on clinical diagnosis of ADHD from the age of five to 2016.In addition, the researchers use a specific measure of the greenness of the environment around the home, the so-called natural differential vegetation index.
