Q. Do you rent helium tanks?
A. Sorry at this time we DO NOT rent helium tanks. There has been issues with a helium shortage.
Q. Can I inhale helium from balloons? I like the way it makes my voice sound.
A. Absolutely not! Breathing in pure helium deprives the body from oxygen, as if you were holding your breath. If you couldn't breath
at all, you'd start to die in minutes-as soon as your body exhausted the supply of oxygen stored in the blood. But helium speeds up
the process. When the gas fills your lungs, it creates a diffusion gradient that washes out the oxygen. In other words, each breath of
helium you take sucks more oxygen out of your system. After inhaling helium, the body's oxygen level can plummet to a hazardous level in a
matter of seconds.
