    I’m not sure about the specific numbers, but I know from chemistry that CO bonds permanently to the heme molceule in hemoglobin in blood. That’s why it is a poison. Oxygen and carbon dioxide bond reversibly with heme, which is how breathing works chemically. What happens is that as blood cells die and are replaced, the heme molecules that have CO permanently bonded to them are replaced. But that takes time….

    I gave up 3 months ago and I am still at 4. It is due in part to passive smoking, lungs not clear yet and car exhaust fumes. Don’t despair cos it WILL come down shortly,
