    Helium is heavier than oxygen, that's why you gotta be careful not to inhale too much. It'll stay in the bottom of your lungs unless you stand upside down. Eventually it gets absorbed by your lungs and they get rid of it it, but that takes a little while.

    It is the new chosen method for suicide. That is what the new Kavorkian is using. They sell masks that connect to the tanks. Gives a whole new meaning to the Party store where you buy balloons.

    you'd just fall asleep so it would be a peaceful death, I'd use nitrous oxide though

    yea, there was a Frontline episode a few weeks ago about assisted suicide. this is the most popular, painless method these days. pump He from a party balloon tank into a plastic bag over your head and breathe. your body acts as if it's breathing in oxygen. after about 30 seconds... gonzo

    Helium is lighter than Oxygen.(Helium has 2 Protons,2 Neutrons....Oxygen 8 Protons,8 Neutrons.Per Nucleus on average.)

    It's the displacement of Oxygen from the lungs which leads to Death.(Hypoxia)

    Also Helium is chemically neutral.It doesn't bind to anything so it should just escape when breathed out.
    Most likely.......Use of Hood for Suicide.
