- The carbin dioxide is what the trees breathe in and it breathe out oxygen so that all cretures can live.
- It also provide us medicines like vincristine which is from a rosy periwinkle plant.
Another word for Rosy Periwinkle is Catharanthus roseus.
Palm sugar is sap that comes from the Palmyra trees.

What important natural food does it produce?
- Rainforests produces many different types of food we eat like fruits and vegetables.
- Some of the fruits and vegetables are corn, bananas, potatoes, oranges and many more.
- Some of the rainforest plants could be able to be made into a medicine and sometimes could cure diseases.
- Plants, and trees like a palm tree are cut down all the time to make Palm oil and Palm sugar.
- Trees are also chop down for timber and to build houses.
Why are Rainforests so important?
- Rainforests are important for our health because without the rainforests we wouldn't have the natural food like apples.
- Human cut down trees so they can use the pulp from the trees to make paper.
- We need trees for houses for humans to live.
- It is home to many, many thousands of species of animals and plants.
- Provides us medicine ingredients like the Rosy Periwinkle.
- Deforestation is a enormous problem because lots of animals who call a rainforest home won't have a place to sleep.
- If more trees are cut down, they we will have less of the natural foods we eat everyday.
- When trees are cut down the earth will have more carbon doixide than oxygen.
