Why is Carbon Monoxide so Detrimental to Your Health?

Carbon monoxide might be a life and death situation, so it’s not a thing to take lightly.

1. You Can’t Taste It

Carbon monoxide is life-threatening because you aren’t able to view it, smell it with your nose or recognize it with your taste buds. It’s nonirritating in small concentrations and can’t be filtered.

2. It Can Be Deadly After Only Minutes

Carbon monoxide is a result of burnt fuel. It can leak into your home during cold weather if the heat exchanger on your gas furnace fails. Depending on how considerable the leak is and the circulation in a house, carbon monoxide could become fatal in only a few minutes.

Once breathed in, the gas has a half-life of around five hours. If you are inhaling pure air, you will need five hours to get it out of your body. It requires an additional five hours to decrease that level by half.

3. Carbon Monoxide Reaction Can Mimic Other Illnesses

Carbon monoxide can also mirror illnesses that can be mistaken as the flu, viral infections and chronic fatigue syndrome, among other illnesses.
