Carbon Monoxide And Autoimmune Diseases
Autoimmune disease is also known as Autoimmune conditions. In auto immune disease the enemy is from with in . As name implies "auto" is self and "immune " is immune system . One 's own immune system for unknown reason turns against self and destroys or damages tissues or cells . List of auto immune disease are many and growing . End result is destruction of of tissues such as thyroid , pancreas or cells such as white ...Read more
Hurts O2 delivery: Carbon monoxide acts by keeping red blood cells from picking up oxygen so it hurts you by starving the body for oxygen. Once the co separates off the red cell it starts working again and theprocess stops. If the lack of oxygen was severe enough to cause damage to parts of the body it will take time for that to be repaired, but otherwise there shouldn't be long-term problems. ...Read more
Instantaneous: Carbon monoxide does damage by binding to red blood cells, causing them to not be able to carry oxygen. It happens as soon as the CO contacts the blood and it will stay attached to the hemoglobin in the blood for many hours. It is reversed much faster when the person is treated by breathing 100% oxygen. It's normal to have a little CO in the blood - smokers have up to 15% (40% is lethal) ...Read more
Combustion: Incomplete combustion yields carbon monoxide instead of carbon dioxide--so anything that burns--gas water heater, gas stove, running car in garage, propane heater, fireplace, candles, etc. This is why the venting / exhaust handling is so meticulous and should be periodically inspected to be sure it is not obstructed, and service checks for operating efficiency so as little co as possible is made. ...Read more
CO Detector: Carbon monoxide (co) is colorless, odorless, and lethal in adequate concentrations. It requires a specific detector, most of which are independent from a traditional "smoke detector, " but some brands are combination units. They are strongly encouraged for sleeping areas. ...Read more
Carbon monoxide: Open windows to bring in fresh air. Get out of the house, into the fresh air. Have yoiur house inspected to find the carbon monixide leak and have it fixed. Do not return to your home until the leak is fixed. ...Read more
Incomplete combustio: Generally, it's formed from incomplete combustion of fossil fuels. In chemistry, a hydrocarbon should burn in oxygen to carbon dioxide and water. However, other by-products may form such as carbon monoxide, nitrogen, and sulfur containing compounds. Carbon monoxide is dangerous because it preferentially and more tightly binds to hemoglobin molecules than oxygen. Cells can't use co so they die. ...Read more
The immune system developed to tell our own, normal cells (self) from foreign and abnormal cells (non-self). This lets the immune system eliminate viruses, bacteria, fungi and cancer cells from our body without harming normal cells. Sometimes the immune system fails to tell self from non-self and it attacks normal cells, for example in ...Read more
