The Oxygen-Carbon Dioxide Connection

The process of photosynthesis effectively reverses the respiration process seen in animals. While animals inhale oxygen and exhale carbon dioxide, plants do the opposite. This reciprocal relationship is essential for maintaining the delicate balance of gases in our atmosphere. As plants release oxygen, it supports the respiration of animals, while animals exhale carbon dioxide, which plants then use for photosynthesis. This beautiful synergy sustains life on Earth.
