what happens during respiration

Jan 7th, 2015

In our body, food is broken down and release the energy that we need. This process is called respiration. Oxygen is consumed and carbon dioxide is produced in the process. It occurs all the time inside living cells. 
In respiration, the energy stored in food is released much slower compared to burning. Also it is a complex chemical process. 
A word formula to express it: 
food + oxygen ---> carbon dioxide + energy + water
