The incomplete combustion of fuels produces carbon monoxide (CO), an odourless and colourless gas. When people are exposed to CO gas, the CO molecules in their bodies displace oxygen, causing poisoning.
Our senses cannot identify Carbon Monoxide since it has no odour, colour, or taste. As a result, deadly gas levels can accumulate indoors, with people having no way of detecting the problem until they get unwell. Furthermore, the symptoms of CO poisoning are similar to those of the flu, leading sufferers to overlook the early indicators of CO poisoning.
