Because I have a job to do. I have to produce carbon dioxide.
What if I eat you, could you still be able to make carbon dioxide?
If you eat me I won't be able to create glucose for cellular respiration and ATP.
No silly! I'd be devoured!
Wow! You have a lot of responsibilities.
Do all flowers have this job?
Yes! It's called photosynthesis. We use sunlight to make carbon dioxide and we give off oxygen for you to breath. The Carbon dioxide and oxygen goes through what is called the chloroplast which makes cellular respiration.
Wow, So you're the reason I haven't passed out from eating all those shrubs.
Yeah, You should really hold off on the shrubs.
Well looks like I have to go change my diet now. See you later.
