How does exposure to a natural gas leak affect your health?

Answer

When it comes to exposure to natural gas, a leak can impact health rather quickly. As a fossil fuel, natural gas is highly flammable. It is particularly dangerous because it is odorless and colorless. In some cases, it can cause problems with stress and the immune system. Generally, oxygen levels are reduced when natural gas is exposed. This initially leads to nausea, headaches, and irregular breathing. However, it can also cause asphyxiation and, ultimately death.
