Get Out (For the Sake of Your Health)

Cities… dirty, over-populated, over-priced, over-taxed shitholes inhabited by wildlife such as feminist hambeasts, low-testosterone nu-males, beta Antifa, hordes of thots, welfare vampires, and whatever-the-fuck-this-thing-is, etc.

Not particularly pleasant places to call home. Take it from me, I live in THE most densely populated city in America, of which I am planning to get the FUCK out as soon as possible!

But, since I had mentioned “thots” while describing cities, I just wanted to share this hilarious news headline with you all for a quick laugh. And the judge, apparently, even asked this dude what a “thot” is. Absolutely priceless!

And, no, I am not condoning sexual assault!

But, the fact that this dude actually used the excuse of some girl being a “thot”, in court no less, as to why he groped her, and given the judges reaction to that popular acronym… I just found this to be comedy gold. Like something out of a movie, not real life.

Anyway… back to the topic of this video, it also appears that cities are not particularly ideal if you care about your health either!

A Japanese study published in the European Journal of Applied Physiology has, unsurprisingly, found that routinely walking in nature, such as a forested area, substantially lowers diastolic and systolic blood pressure, as well as the stress hormone noradrenalin, and the neurotransmitter dopamine. Walking in nature also improves insulin sensitivity via heightened production of adiponectin. All of that can reinforce the positive effects of exercise. However, these significant effects were not witnessed in folks who walked
in urban, or built-up environments.

It is theorized that phytoncides are, at least, partly responsible for these benefits. Phytoncides are a group of compounds emitted by trees which protect them from micro-organisms.

Earlier papers have shown that inhaling these compounds reduces the production of stress hormones, such as adrenaline and noradrenaline, leading to a relaxing effect in both male and female subjects.

Hell, an earlier Japanese study also found a correlation between greater amount of forested area and a decrease in mortality rates from cancers. More specifically, for women, lung, breast, and uterine cancers, and for men, prostate, kidney, and colon cancers.

As with the first paper that I shared, the researchers chalk this anti-cancer effect up to the number of phytoncides emitted by trees.

Furthermore, retreating to nature has also been shown to increase human Natural Killer Cell activity, and the number of Natural Killer cells!

And Natural Killer Cells are a component of our immune system which act as first responders to infection.

And, as with all of the aforementioned benefits, the researchers of this paper also suspect that phytoncides play a significant role in the immunostimulating effect of trees.

In other words, the more trees, the more powerful your immune system too!

Moral of the story? Leave the cities! And just stay out, unless you really have to venture in. Like, for work or something.

Move somewhere where you can be regularly immersed in nature. You’ll very likely end up happier and healthier, and you can better avoid the dregs of society as well.

I mean, really, this… or, THIS…?

Which would you honestly prefer to call home? Which one innately attracts you more? I suppose some folks prefer the former, but I would suspect most folks are drawn to the latter. And I am certainly one of those.

For example, as a man who frequents England, I much, MUCH prefer places like the Yorkshire Dales, or the Lake District, to the over-crowded London.

Anyway, leave your thoughts and comments below.
