Solution

Respiration is a vital function of the body because it provides energy for carrying out all the life processes that are necessary to keep the organisms alive. Most living things need oxygen to obtain energy from food. This oxygen reacts with the food molecules present in the body cells and burns them slowly to release energy. This energy is stored as ATP molecules in the cells. The process of releasing energy from food is called respiration.
