As is proved by scientists, 1 tons of leaves could take in 10-30 kilogram carbon dioxide and chlorine. Each leave is a small factory, continually providing energy for plants, as well as providing oxygen essential for human life.

In order to maintain life, human being have to take in oxygen and expire carbon dioxide.If the carbon dioxide in the air is too high, people would hardly breath and be toxicated. Plants are the only creature in the world to photosynthesis, besides, it is the absorber of carbon dioxide and producer of oxygen.

There are other plants which can take in toxic gas like sulfur dioxide and carbon monoxide. Besides, some plants could even take in some harmful radiation to human body, such as the cactus put in front of the computer could take in large amount of radiation sent out by the screen.
