What is carbon monoxide poisoning?

When you breathe in carbon monoxide, it gets into your blood stream and prevents red blood cells from carrying oxygen around your body.

Levels that do not kill can cause serious harm to health when breathed in over a long period of time.

Long-term effects of carbon monoxide poisoning include paralysis and brain damage.
