What is Carbon Monoxide (CO)?

Carbon monoxide (CO), known as the silent killer, is a colourless, odourless, highly poisonous gas that is produced when fuels are burned incompletely. It is produced in car exhaust fumes, faulty gas boilers and tobacco smoke1. When you inhale smoke from a cigarette, the CO is absorbed into your blood, forming %COHb, which prevents oxygen from being carried around your body to vital organs, resulting in many damaging health effects.
