Carbon monoxide (CO) is the number one cause of poisoning deaths in the United States. According to the Journal of the American Medical Association, “For the period 1999-2004, an average of 439 persons died annually from unintentional, non–fire-related CO poisoning (range: 400 in 1999 to 473 in 2003).”(http://jama.ama-assn.org/cgi/content/full/299/9/1011) Carbon monoxide is a colorless and odorless gas; the initial effects are similar to altitude sickness (headache, lightheadedness, dizziness, shortness of breath) and are often ignored until it is too late.
