Air-conditioned rooms, synthetic building materials and inadequate ventilation cause many respiratory and nervous disorders. The mere presence of plants has been proved to lessen environmental pollution, increase labor productivity, and reduce the cost of health care. Plants also provide medicinal herbs and nutritious food that go a long way in extending our lifespan.


From the freshening up of indoor space, to creating a variety of gardens, and to natural methods of waste recycling, Plants explores the diverse means by which plants can enhance our lives. Produced after many years of scientific research and data collection, this book is a comprehensive study of the amazing benefits of plants. 144 pages.
