Hazard Alert

Please do not allow students to inhale helium. Government health agencies and industrial safety representatives have taken strong stands against the practice of breathing helium to demonstrate the change in pitch that occurs when breathing a lighter-than-air gas. Breathing helium removes oxygen from the bloodstream, so it’s not the same and actually worse than just “holding your breath.”
