Plants Nourish Animals Beyond Glucose

If plants supply both Glucose and Oxygen as a by-product, could it be that they have been our source of nourishment all along?

I am not talking about eating plants. They produce glucose, which is sweet and desirable by many. That sugar can be addictive too. I am actually referring solely to Oxygen.

As there are two modes of cell respiration; Aerobic; which requires oxygen as the fueling agent, and Anaerobic; requiring glucose as the fueling agent, it appears from my long study that the cell runs on either one or the other, not both. At least not at the same time.

The consumption of sugar propels the body to use it up as a fueling source, forcing cells to ferment internally. This causes a lot of discomfort, especially on the multicellular organism's life condition.

Lactic acid produced from fermentation inside the cells is a waste by-product, that must be moved out of the cells and transported to the liver to be recycled and detoxified.

Through exercise, from modest to intensive, the circulation of blood accelerates the flow of dirty sewers through the filtration system (liver, kidneys) in order to alkalize the bloodstream.

Because we are not eating glucose as we exercise, our body utilizes a secondary energy production pathway, that of Oxygen and Fat burning.

Please remember, all glucose that was not burnt straight away is converted into fatty acids, stored in fat cells, and remains there as storage energy units. That is what fats are.... energy storage units.

They sit comfortably in the cells, without hurting the host. Unlike glucose which is highly reactive, that is why the body insists on dealing with glucose's presence in the bloodstream.

Glucose is so highly reactive, it can oxidize. Just like its brother, Oxygen, that is specifically related by name to the word "Oxidation". Though, glucose makes the blood acidic, while Oxygen does not.

Oxygen has a very important place in our diet. Once it had comprised 38% of our atmosphere, today it is down to 20%.

Our respiratory tract is a digestive tract as well. It deals with gaseous substances, unlike the gastrointestinal tract that digests solid substances. In either case, the body is able to access nourishment from the environment.

We can either eat our environment, or breath the environment.
We can either ferment sugar, or inhale Oxygen.

We start planting more trees, so we thrive on Oxygen!
