Cool facts
• * Your lungs contain almost 1500 miles of
airways and over 300 million alveoli.
•
* Every minute you breathe in 13 pints of
air.
•
* Plants are our partners in breathing. We
breathe in air, use the oxygen in it, and
release carbon dioxide. Plants take in carbon
dioxide and release oxygen. Thank
goodness!
