    • they take in the carbon dioxide that human beings and animals exhale.
    • Plants are just as greedy for the carbon dioxide as human beings are

    • have in us from proteins and other food elements. And we exhale carbon
    • in carbon dioxide, keeping a part of it back. So now we have that
    • carbon and oxygen together in our body. We do not retain and use the
