How is carbon monoxide harmful?

Red blood cells normally transport oxygen through the bloodstream, releasing it to tissues that need it. However, carbon monxide bonds to the red blood cells much better than oxygen, and is not released once it combines with them. The red blood cells are unable to transport oxygen (they are already full of carbon monoxide), and you can become ill or die from lack of oxygen.
