Can plants be harmful too?

By: Eddie Agic

Why are plants beneficial?

Plants take in Carbon Dioxide and turn it into Air, in a process called photosynthisis. This is probably the most important thing plants do for Humans and Animals. Roots, leaves, and trunks provide shelter for Animals. We cut down trees to make our houses though. They do many things for Animals and Humans, but can they do bad too?

So, are they harmful?

Yes they are.

Plants can be poisonous, poison ivy makes you itchy for example. They do not mean to do this, they have it as a defense system. Some plants can also be bad for ingesting. Be careful around plants. They definitely can be harmful.
