      We breathe out carbon dioxide into the atmosphere which plants use for photosynthesis to make their food and oxygen for us to breathe in.

      Carbon is an essential component to biology. Most biomolecules in your body and formed of chains of carbon. Your DNA, your cell membranes, your bones; these all contain carbon!
