NO. RESPIRATION IS NOT THE PROPER TERM.
Ventilation is what you’re looking for
Respiration is when glucose breaks down-
In order to release energy to your cells
YES. Although uncommon, other carbohydrates will suffice.
Internally the respiration occurs
Within the mitochondria, during stages one or two
In the first- oxygen is not required
The second-which is the main, it’s required, along strengthened cycles
Moral of the story:
In some bacteria the oxidant is the nitrate
Learn to ventilate
Before air becomes a mystery-
A McGuffin who can’t see the plots it drives.
