Why is Carbon Monoxide so Bad? 

Carbon monoxide could 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, sense it with your nose or taste it. It doesn’t cause irritation in little doses and can’t be filtrated. 

2. It Can Be Deadly in Just a Few Minutes 

Carbon monoxide is a result of spent fuel. It can filter into your house during cold weather if the heat exchanger on your gas furnace fails. While it depends on how large the leak is and the airflow in a house, carbon monoxide 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, it requires five hours to remove it from your system. It will take an additional five hours to decrease that amount by half. 

3. Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Can Act Like Other Illnesses 

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

How to Guard Your Family from Carbon Monoxide
