Cellular respiration
 
Hello everyone,
My name is Dennis Frazee and I am a student and a runner at Wabash College
and I am currently doing a project on Cellular Respiration. As a runner and
student of Biology I have a few questions that I was hoping someone may have a
reply for. As Cellular Respiration is considered, the more oxygen that is
present the more that it can occur, but by what manner is it possible to bring
in a larger amount of oxygen to the body. Also, is there any type of
fruits/vegetables that can be consumed for cellular respiration to be carried
out in a more energy proficient manner. Thank you for you time.

Yours in Biology,
Dennis Frazee

Only under conditions where oxygen is limiting. You understand what
"limiting" means?


Larger compared to what? You'd have to specify the conditions you're
comparing them to -- what kind of organism, for instance. I mean, you can
say an animal's respiratory system is all about bringing in a larger amount
of oxygen than it would get without a respiratory system.

Considering that the thermodynamics of the reactions involved are fixed, the
answer to that would have to be "no". There are ways to short-circuit
oxidative phosphorylation such that energy would be wasted, but there are no
ways to get any extra energy out of it.
