Is living healthy living green because you use less medication?

    Pharmaceuticals can have a negative impact on the environment, especially when they get into the water supply – so it’s probably true that a lifestyle which requires less medication is better for the planet as well.  However, green living and good health also tend to go together for several other reasons.  Organic foods grown without the use of pesticides and synthetic fertilizers also tend to be healthier for your body, and walking or riding a bike instead of driving in a car is good exercise as well as reducing pollution.  Sustainable lifestyles tend to be good for your health as well, and the reduced need for pharmaceuticals is only one of many reasons.

    Yes, as the previous answer points out, it is not just about less medication. Green lifestyles tend to be healthier overall (food, exercise, coming into contact with fewer chemicals) so living healthily and “greenily” often go hand-in-hand.

    There are also ways to ensure that one lives healthily, e.g. buying organic food, that have an impact on the environment.  That makes you healthy and green.
