Why is Carbon Monoxide so Bad? 

Carbon monoxide may be a major concern, so it’s not a thing to joke about. 

1. You Can’t Smell It 

Carbon monoxide is deadly because you cannot view it, sense it with your nose or recognize it with your taste buds. It doesn’t cause irritation in little doses and can’t be purified. 

2. It Can Be Fatal After Only Minutes 

Carbon monoxide is a result of burnt fuel. It can filter into your house during the winter if the heat exchanger on your gas furnace fails. Based on how large the leak is and the airflow in a house, the gas may become fatal in only a few minutes. 

Once breathed in, it has a half-life of around five hours. If you are inhaling pure air, you will need five hours to remove it from your system. You will need an additional five hours to decrease that amount by half. 

3. Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Can Act Like Other Illnesses 

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

How to Guard Your Family from Carbon Monoxide
