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 life-threatening because you cannot view it, smell it with your nose or recognize it with your taste buds. It’s not as dangerous in little doses and can’t be filtered. 

2. It Can Be Fatal Within 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, carbon monoxide may become fatal in only a few minutes. 

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

3. Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Can Act Like Other Illnesses 

It may also cause conditions that can be confused with the flu, viral infections and chronic fatigue syndrome, among other things.
