2. Why do people yawn?

Answer: When we feel tired, body produces a lot of carbon dioxide. When there is too much carbon dioxide, oxygen must be added to balance body's needs. Since this residual carbon dioxide will affect functional activities of our body, at this time body sends a defensive reaction, so we yawn. Yawning is a deep breathing action that allows us to take in more oxygen and release carbon dioxide than usual, and relieves fatigue.
