Why is Carbon Monoxide so Dangerous?

Carbon monoxide could be a big deal, so it’s not a matter to take lightly.

1. You Can’t Smell It

Carbon monoxide is life-threatening because you can’t see it, detect it with your nose or detect it with your taste buds. It doesn’t cause irritation in low doses and can’t be filtered.

2. It Can Be Fatal Within Minutes

Carbon monoxide is a side effect of spent fuel. It can leak into your residence during cold weather if the heat exchanger on your gas furnace cracks. Depending on how considerable the leak is and the circulation in a home, it could become deadly in only a few minutes.

Once taken in, the gas has a half-life of around five hours. If you are taking in pure air, it will take five hours to remove it from your bloodstream. You will need an extra five hours to decrease that concentration by half.

3. Carbon Monoxide Reaction Can Act Like Other Illnesses

It can also cause illnesses that can be mistaken as the flu, viral infections and chronic fatigue syndrome, among other illnesses.
