Respiration rids the body of $C {O}_{2}$

#### Explanation:

The overall equation for cellular respiration is
${60}_{2}$ + ${C}_{6} {H}_{12} {O}_{2}$ $\rightarrow$ $6 C {O}_{2}$ + $6 {H}_{2} O$ + 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.

$C {O}_{2}$ is eventually collected in the lungs and exhaled through negative pressure.
