How does carbon monoxide acts as poison ?

May 22nd, 2015
 
Carbon monoxide has to do with hemoglobin in the blood whereby carbon monoxide binds very strongly to the iron in hemoglobin. Once carbon monoxide attaches, it is very difficult to release. So if you breath in carbon monoxide, it sticks to your hemoglobin and takes up all of the oxygen binding sites. Eventually, your blood loses all of its ability to transport oxygen, and you suffocate thus becoming poisonous
