Microbiologist Dr. Philip Tierno says, unless you have pets that use the yard as a bathroom, rolling around or playing in the grass is perfectly safe. Because most yard bacteria isn’t pathogenic – which means they don’t cause disease in humans. As a matter of fact, a common bacterium found in garden soil increases our feel-good hormone levels. So after gardening, you’ll feel less anxiety and have better concentration.
