The organisms that use fermentation, such as yeast, gain energy by converting carbohydrates to carbon dioxides and alcohols. Organisms that use fermentation do not require sunlight.

Yeasts and a few other microorganisms.

All of them do except for ones that instead use fermentation

Most organisms including humans carry out lactic acid fermentation

The two types of fermentation are alcoholic fermentation, and lactic-acid fermentation. Alcoholic fermentation, occurs in yeast and other single celled organisms. Lactic-acid fermentation occurs in muscle cells. Your muscles use it to create energy when there is not enough oxygen to use for normal respiration.

Oxygen is not present in sufficient quantity for normal cellular respiration.

they take glucose (sugar), break it in half (glycolysis), and use it to make ethanol (poison in beer) and carbon dioxide (CO2)

That high a concentration of ethanol is toxic to the organisms doing the fermentation.

humans can do it in their muscles

Yes, fermentation uses water. It does not use oxygen.

Alcoholic fermentation occurs in organisms such as yeast, as produces ethyl alcohol. Lactic acid fermentation occurs in animals such as humans and produces lactic acid instead of alcohol.

one way in which food can be perserved is to use the method of : 1.Natural fermentation-performed by organisms naturally found in the vegetables. 2.Fermentation controlled by the amount of salt that is added and the acid produced.

In cellular respiratio, oxygen is the terminal electron acceptor. In fermentation, the terminal electron acceptor is an organic molecule. If oxygen is available, cellular reapiration is preferred. In the absence of oxygen however, certain organisms have evolved to switch over to fermentation to derive energy
