Expert Answer:

The food material taken in during nutrition is used in cells to provide energy for various life processes. This energy is released during the process of respiration. The oxygen taken in during respiration is transported to cells for carrying out oxidation of food. This energy is stored in the form of ATP, which is used for the entire working of the body. Also, the CO2 released during repiration has to be removed immediately out of the body.

So without respiration, the body will not get any energy to function in any way. Hence it is a vital function or process of the body.
