Does Smoking Increase the Level of Carbon Monoxide in the Blood?

Answer

Smoking tobacco increases the CO content of your blood. The normal level of CO for a nonsmoker depends on background levels in the air, but it is usually between 0 and 8 parts per million. The level of CO for a smoker is usually much higher. A smoker's level of CO varies according to the time of day, the number of tobacco products smoked and how the smoke is inhaled.
