Want to find a secret to healthy living?  Leave the cities and head towards open water.  According to a new study, life really is a beach.

FOX's Colleen Cappon reports in today's "Housecall for Health":

If you want to be healthier, one study says move to the beach.  Researchers at Peninsula College of Medicine in England analyzed data from more than 48 million people and found that those living near the coast were in overall better health than those living inland.

Past studies have shown that a seaside environment reduces stress, and scientists are planning more studies on exactly what it is about the sea that benefits our bodies.
