it surely is. The condition in countryside is very different from the condition in the city. There is no so much pollution there that the air is still fresh, and the water is still clean. People living in the countryside tend to have a simple way of living. Many of them become farmers and some of them run small-scale industries creating things like handicrafts or traditional foods. They seem to enjoy their life so much that they don't see many of them suffer from serious diseases like high blood pressure or heart disease. As a result, many of them have longer life than those who live in the city.
Country living is healthier for many reasons. The air is fresher, the land cleaner. Children are more apt to work and play outside, making them healthier than sedentary city children with nowhere to go outside. Country life frequently involves farming, growing ones own food and livestock. Eating farm raised food provides less hormones and antibiotics to wreak havoc on our systems. Life lessons are learned when caring for animals and plants that cannot be duplicated in other scenarios. My daughter rides horses and plays in the creek as often as she can. She is much healthier than her older brother who was raised in suburban areas until he was 10. He has no physical endurance because he plays video games all the time. There is a definite advantage to living in the country. Anyone who says it isn't fun has never experienced it!
Healthier maybe, but not as fun.
