LAS VEGAS - nvtip -- Gardening has been shown to positively impact our moods, reduce stress and alleviate symptoms of anxiety and depression.

A survey of communities around the world that are known for having many residents aged 100 and over shows that gardening may be one of the secrets to a long life.

Artificial preservatives, added sugar and meat are rarely eaten.

By the time they make it to your dinner table, much of their benefits are diminished.
