Shedding light on the link between humans and plants

With every exhale you breath out CO2. Plants inhale this and exhale oxygen. By visualizing the air we breath with green light (oxygen) and purple (which helps with photosyntese) for CO2 the user will recognize the import link between humans and plants. Through the centuries gardens have always played a healing roll in medicine. From the ancient Greeks to the monastery of the middle ages. New studies shows that plants reduce stress and can play a important roll in the recovering of patients. Not only will the plants absorb temperature changes and bad acoustics, which keeps a lot of personnel from using it, they also filter out dust particles and constantly provide fresh air.
