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 so unsafe because you aren’t able to view it, detect it with your nose or detect it with your taste buds. It’s nonirritating in low doses and can’t be filtrated. 

2. It Can Be Lethal After Only Minutes 

Carbon monoxide is a result of used fuel. It can filter into your house during cold weather if the heat exchanger on your gas furnace fails. Depending on how large the leak is and the airflow in a house, it could become fatal in only a few minutes. 

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

3. Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Can Act Like Other Illnesses 

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