Just a point the CO2 levels in HP's blood could have been caused by the Merc which had been smashed up and CO2 released was breathed in in his final

There were very high levels of carbon monoxide, not carbon dioxide, in Henry Paul's blood. It should have caused nausea and severe headaches. There
was no natural source that could have caused this, as several medical experts testified. Toxicologist Professor Robert Forrest admitted that he could
not find any logical explanation for the findings.
"One is left with either analytical error or a mystery," he told the jury at the Diana inquest.
"It's either conspiracy or cock-up."
According to tests carried out by two French medical experts hours after the Paris crash, the levels of carbon monoxide in Mr Paul's blood ranged
between 12 and 21 per cent.
This compares to a normal reading of around two to four percent. Several possibilities were explored including the suggestion that the driver inhaled
gas from the airbag of the Mercedes after impact. This was discounted by Prof Forrest, however.
The best suggestion that he could come up with was that the reading could have been connected to his heavy smoking.
He also pointed out that the machine used to measure blood gas was a "good piece of kit" but not one designed for post mortem analysis.
But Prof Forrest admitted that it was "very, very unlikely" Mr Paul could have realistically had such a high level of Carboxyhaemoglobin
concentration in his blood and said there was no rational explanation for the result.
"I would say still that this is the one thing that worries me most about this investigation," he said.
"I still have not managed to achieve an intellectual resolution which totally satisfies me."
Here is an expert who cannot understand how such a high concentration of carbon monoxide could exist in Henri Paul's blood. Therefore, any conjecture
about it by non-professionals seeking to defend the official explanation must be rejected as inadequate.
