    I am still pretty green at toxicology despite having an exam next week, but i recently did a report on CO poisoning so here goes.

    Carbon monoxide is an odourless, colourless gas which is lethal at small doses, 1 molecule for 1999 of air can be lethal. It is often misdiagnosed and more often than not leads to longterm sequelae like behavioural changes. It is also one of the causes of sick building syndrome.

    all this info and more on CO poisoning can be found at
