They say a dose of fresh air is good for the lungs and the skin.  But it may also be good for the brain, scientists claim.Taking a walk in a natural place can ease depression, according to new research.A study found strolling around a green place stops people dwelling on negative repetitive thoughts. However, walking around an urban setting, such as a city or a town, did not have the same effect. 
Previous research has linked such negative thoughts, called rumination, to higher levels of mental illness. Those who ruminate dwell of negative aspects of themselves, replaying embarrassing or disappointing moments in their mind.It is known from former studies that people who live in cities are more prone to rumination, and therefore more likely to become depressed, although it is not yet known why.The new study shows taking a walk in a green place could help ease the rumination that is linked to living in an urban place, the researchers concluded.

Dave Fisher will never forget the day he watched his mother die in agony from a cardiac arrest in a hospital bed. Nor will he forgive the doctors who prescribed the combination of two drugs he believes killed her in just 28 minutes as her family could only watch in horror.‘She was very distressed and gasping for breath,’ recalls the marine surveyor. ‘It was horrendous.’In April 2010, Joan Fisher, an 83-year-old former nurse, was taken to hospital after suffering chest pains. She’d initially been rushed by ambulance to Hull Royal Infirmary, but because of a bed shortage was transferred that evening to nearby Castle Hill Hospital.Unsettled by the late evening transfer, Mrs Fisher became increasingly anxious.
Worse, she was somehow separated from her regular medication — drugs for conditions including chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, osteoporosis, angina, raised cholesterol, high blood pressure and heart failure. So at Castle Hill, the missing medication was reordered from the hospital’s own stocks — but a registrar also decided to add bisoprolol to the list.Bisoprolol, like the diltiazem Mrs Fisher was already taking, is used to treat high blood pressure and chest pain.
