Trees emit airborne chemicals called phytoncides to protect themselves from bacteria, fungi, insects and animals. When we breathe in these chemicals our bodies increase the number and activity of natural killer cells, which kill tumor and virus infected cells in our bodies. Looking at pictures of trees and nature have similar, yet less dramatic, effects.
And all this time we thought they just gave us oxygen!!
When you imagine a relaxing, peaceful setting, chances are it is a natural space.
