Richard Louv in his book, Last Child in the Woods: Saving Our Children from Nature Deficit Disorder, directly links lack of nature in the lives of today's generation to childhood obesity, depression and attention deficit disorder. Louv uses research to assert that nature is a potent therapy for depression, obesity ADD and more.
