Better Health Benefits of Biking

This article discusses a recent study in the Environmental Health Perspectives journal, one that found small biking trips to be very beneficial to your health. This study, co-authored by Ecohealth 101's founder Dr. Jonathan Patz, and showed that even if people living in cities only biked about 140 days out of the year, billions of dollars could be saved avoiding car crashes and reduce the amount of pollution created by driving cars all the time. 

See Ecohealth's Unbalancing Act for more information about the health risks that can be reduced even when you live in a big city or town.
