A new study from @tamupublichealth suggests that city dwellers with access to more urban green spaces have better mental health!

The study used the NatureScore database to assess neighborhoods' "greenness" and found that various mental health encounters decreased as the NatureScore of a neighborhood increased.

Before you devour the rest of your Valentine's Day treats, consider this: too much sugar is not so sweet for your heart. 🫀

Dr. Clayton Kruger from Texas A&M Health Family Care and @tamumedicine says it's shocking how little sugar is too much—just one regular soda contains a whole day's worth of sugar!

Too much sugar can cause inflammation, which is linked with heart failure, heart attacks, strokes and a slew of other health conditions. A diet high in sugar can also lead to type 2 diabetes, which raises the risk for cardiovascular issues.
