Carbon Monoxide: Creeping Killer Caught In The Act
People have known for centuries that carbon monoxide is life-threatening. Even today, thousands of people are killed by carbon monoxide incidents every year. Carbon monoxide prevention remains important, especially now that houses are better insulated for energy saving purposes.
