Abstract: 
The World Health Organization (WHO) defines health as “a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity” (WHO, 2017), and mental health is defined as not only the absence of mental illness, but also the presence of psychological well-being. An expanding body of evidence highlights the relationship between nature (such as urban greenspace) and health (Li et al., 2019; Flaxman et al., 2020). However, human development and subsequent effects such as climate change and epidemic disease (COVID-19) lead to altered living environments and lifestyles. Expanding cities and urban residents have inequitable access to nature, particularly in areas of greater depriv‑ation, where both public and private greenspaces are less available (Feng et al., 2021). In addition, young people spend more than 80% of their time indoors due to constant use of electronic devices for work, study, and entertainment (Klepeis et al., 2001). Mobile phones, personal computers, and video-game devices have become the main means for them to release stress. Excessive use of these electronic devices may affect normal brain activity, increasing the risk of Internet addiction and producing a range of physical and mental problems (Tran et al., 2017). These signal the pressing need for scientific investigation of efficient and convenient ways to increase contact with nature, or alternatively, to better regulate emotions indoors.

概要:如今,城市居民80%以上的时间都待在室内,很少有时间接触大自然,尤其是年轻人。研究发现,植物对人们的身心健康有明显的积极影响,不同特性的植物所产生的干预效果是不同的,而且在情绪调节方面存在较大的个体差异,这可能与人们的性别和教育水平等背景密切相关。然而,这些问题仍然没有得到解答。本研究利用486名中国年轻人的横断面数据,分析了人们对各种可食用城市植物的看法和偏好,并进一步探讨了食用植物调节情绪的主要潜在途径。结果显示,77.4%的参与者喜欢植物,大多数人在看到植物时感到放松。参与者最喜欢的食用植物的颜色是多色,其次是绿色和红色。参与者最喜欢的叶菜是生菜,最喜欢的结果植物是草莓。男性和女性参与者最喜欢的芳香植物存在显著差异,其中男性喜欢香葱,而女性喜欢薄荷。此外,味道是参与者偏好的主要原因。这项研究初步提供了可能适合城市种植的食用植物的选择,并强调了植物在维持年轻人心理健康方面的重要性。
