According to Climate, Biodiversity, and Forests, World Resources Institute: “over the past 150 years, deforestation has contributed an estimated thirty percent of the atmospheric build-up of Carbon Dioxide. It is also a significant driving force behind the loss of genes, species, and critical ecosystem services.”
However, one practical step to compensate for the several unpreventable CO2 emissions is to PLANT TREES. Tree planting can and will make an important and valuable contribution to the fight against accelerating global climate change. The TYPE of tree planted will have a great influence on the environmental outcome. Trees take Carbon Dioxide OUT of the atmosphere and they RELEASE oxygen in return.
What is so special about the Moringa Tree is that based on a Japanese study it has reportedly a rate of absorption or assimilation of Carbon Dioxide that is twenty times (20x) higher than that of general vegetation and fifty times (50x) the rate of CO2 absorption compared with the Japanese cedar trees. In other words, Moringa would be a useful tool in the prevention of global warming in that one (1) Moringa tree will be the equivalent to the effectiveness of fifty (50) Japanese cedar trees in absorbing carbon.
Also, Moringa has one of the highest sources of chlorophyll in the plant kingdom. Even our own bodies, when we take in any plant food that is rich in chlorophyll, the ill effects of carbon monoxide is minimized since chlorophyll increases hemoglobin production.
