People who smoke are more likely to successfully give up the habit if they live near green spaces, research suggests. Scientists have also found that those residing in leafy neighbourhoods are less likely to smoke.

 

The research, published in the journal Social Science & Medicine, is based on Health Survey for England (HSE) data from more than 8,000 adults.

“This study is the first to investigate the association between neighbourhood greenspace and smoking behaviours in England,” said Leanne Martin, from the University of Plymouth, the lead author on the study.
