    Carbon monoxide, though a poison, is found in the air around us.  It makes up approximately .2 parts per million and offers no risks at that level.  Carbon monoxide is odorless, colorless, and tasteless.  It is capable of causing death once 2.5% of the hemoglobin in the human body is bonded to the carbon monoxide.

    Carbon Monoxide is found at levles of about 0.1 ppm (parts per million) in unpolluted air. The air near the exsaust pipe of a car without a catalytic converter would have levels around 7,000 ppm.
