    “Oxygen is the life supporting gas”. It is one of the most important gases present in our planet . It is very clear during this corona crisis what is the importance of oxygen . Oxygen is only the gase which we inhale and our body is functioning only because of oxygen.

    Here some of the importance of oxygen for our body functions:-

    1. As we know , it plays a critical role in respiration (process by which energy is produced. As during respiration oxygen break down into simple soluble substances like CO2, water, and energy). We need oxygen to stay alive.

    2. Oxygen also helps in purification of water( sewage treatment)

    3. Oxygen has ability to increase the body’s absorption capacity of vitamins , minerals , proteins and essential nutrients.

    4. If you are not getting a proper amount of oxygen than your memory power shortens. You are not able to remember it . This a one of the serious problem in polluted cities.

    Now , I am telling you from where do we get oxygen yes you are correct from the plants by the process of photosynthesis. It is very clear that why plants are very important for mankind. We must stop deforestation and save plants and trees.

    If there is no oxygen available in the atmosphere we will ultimately die. It is the life saving gas. Our whole process will stop working. Our lungs, heart , kidney all the vital organs will stop working.

    Also the animals , birds and aquatic life also sinks.

    Oxygen has vital role for both animals and humans .

    So we must try to save our environment . Stop pollution . Create awareness about this.

    Thank you!!

    Oxygen is one of the most important gases. A living organism is alive only if they are getting proper amount of oxygen and it doesn’t matter if it’s a animal or human or aquatic animal. Humans and animals that lives on land acquired oxygen in the form of gas and the aquatic animals require oxygen from water that is present in the form of H2O.

    Oxygen is important because it helps a body to create energy for daily activities. Like walking, talking even for sleeping we require energy and that energy is made when oxygen is in our body. Oxygen helps in breaking down of of complex substances that we intake as food into the simplest substance to convert them into carbohydrates glucose and starch that is obtained by a body in order to provide energy to us to do daily task.

    If oxygen disappeared is from the planet it will not only affect living organisms, but also their surroundings and the things present in the atmosphere because many elements like buildings, concrete walls are bond together because they have oxygen present in their building blocks and if oxygen disappear concrete building will fall down within a minute. It will affect water as well as water consists of Oxygen and hydrogen and if oxygen disappeared from water it will be just hydrogen left. There will be change in climate as well as the atmospheric conditions. Many Cycles will be disturbed completely because there will be no oxygen.

    Of course oxygen is very important for maintaining life on earth. Being human and other living organisms are made this way that new require oxygen to stay alive.

    Human beings require some essential components to survive on this planet Earth. This essential components include sunlight, plants ,water, soil and many other things. Plants are one of the main essential requirements human beings. This is due to various reason plants provides us food and the other reason which is the main reason is plants provide us with the life-saving gas oxygen. Without oxygen humans won’t be able to survive on this planet.

    Plants produce food through their process of photosynthesis and oxygen gas is released as a by-product of this process. This oxygen gas which is released by plants is inhaled by human beings and other living organisms.

    Oxygen that is said to be a life saving gas because it is required in various important processes that is carried out in our body. It is required for respiration in human beings , which helps human beings to extract energy from the food consumed. All the cells in our body require oxygen for producing energy from the food. Oxygen help a body to replenish the old cell and build new cells. Oxygen it is important because it help us to continue our life processes smoothly. Without oxygen life cannot be imagined on planet Earth.

    Human beings inhale oxygen with the help of nose which travels through the windpipe and finally reaches lungs. The oxygen in the air is absorbed by the blood and is transported to various parts of the body, so that they can function well
