Answer:

Respiration rids the body of #CO_2#

Explanation:

The overall equation for cellular respiration is
#60_2# + #C_6H_12O_2# #rarr# #6CO_2# + #6H_2O# + ATP.
six oxygen molecules combine with 1 glucose molecule to produce six carbon dioxide molecules and six water molecules. Chemical energy is also stored in the form of adenosine triphosphate.

#CO_2# is eventually collected in the lungs and exhaled through negative pressure.
