How to protect yourself from CO2 poisoning
A new study has found that people are more susceptible to the effects of CO2 pollution, with an average person exposed to a quarter of the pollution they would otherwise be exposed to.
The study, conducted by researchers from the University of Melbourne, shows that individuals exposed to 2,400 milligrams of CO3 per cubic metre of air for five minutes or more have an average 1.9% increase in risk of developing cancer, compared to an average exposure of 0.2% of the population.
The research is published in the Journal of the American Medical Association.
It found that exposure to CO2 increased the risk of cancer by 1.4% in people exposed for five or more minutes, and 1.3% for those who had a daily exposure of more than three hours.
“This is the first time we’ve looked at the effect of CO1 exposure and the effects on cancer, and we found that the increase in cancer risk was significant,” Associate Professor Susan Brown from the School of Environmental Health Sciences and Public Health at the University said.
“In particular, our results suggest that CO2 can increase cancer risk in people with preexisting medical conditions.”
The research found that when people are exposed to CO1, they’re more likely to have a greater exposure to other pollutants, such as heavy metals, nitrogen oxides, and particulate matter.
“There is a greater risk of CO-induced oxidative stress, a buildup of reactive oxygen species, which increases the likelihood of developing respiratory diseases such as COPD,” Professor Brown said.
Professor Brown said that when the scientists compared the risks to the health of people in the US and the UK, they found that health effects in the UK were significantly lower, although still there were differences.
“What we found in the United Kingdom was that people living in areas where the CO2 is at its highest are the ones who are most at risk, and that those people are those living in the most polluted areas,” she said.
The researchers said that their study looked at health effects caused by exposure to high levels of CO, and how that could relate to health outcomes.
“The main finding from our study is that people exposed to high concentrations of CO will have higher risks of chronic disease,” Professor Susan said.
“We hypothesised that people would have lower levels of exposure to a given amount of CO when exposed to lower concentrations.”
But we don’t know if that is the case.
“It’s possible that some people may have low exposure levels when they are exposed.
It is also possible that people who live in areas with high CO2 levels will have lower health outcomes in those areas.”
Professor Brown also said that the study could help to understand how the effects are distributed across different populations.
“If people live in high CO-rich areas, their health is affected more than those living near low concentrations,” she added.
“So it’s possible for people to live in a high-CO2 area and still have a relatively low health outcome.”
We don’t yet know what the effects will be for other people.
“People can still be exposed, and people living near high concentrations may have a higher health outcome if they have more of their cells exposed.”

The latest research shows that exposure levels are more harmful to people’s brains than to the rest of the body.
In a study published in The Lancet, the researchers found that individuals who had 2,200 milligrammes of CO (parts per million) of CO in their blood had an average 6% lower chance of developing brain cancer compared to those who did not have this exposure.
The results show that the risk for brain cancer increased significantly with increasing exposure, from 1.6% in those who breathed CO2 at levels up to 10,000 milligams per cubic centimetre to 1.5% in individuals with a daily CO2 exposure of 10,400mgs.
“Our results show an increased risk of brain cancer in people who have elevated CO2 in their bloodstream,” lead author Dr Jennifer Tynan said.
She said that because the study was looking at the effects at individual levels, the study didn’t prove causation.
“However, our study does provide strong evidence that elevated CO levels can result in reduced brain health,” she told news.au.
Dr Tynn said that she was not surprised to see such a link.
“Because of the way that CO is absorbed in the body, we have a tendency to think that the levels of air we breathe are just a reflection of the amount
