Is laughing gas harmful, dangerous or unhealthy?

It is important to know whether laughing gas can be harmful. The use of nitrous oxide is becoming more and more popular, but this also raises the question of how bad it actually is. Health always remains an important point of attention in a newly emerging trend among young people. A lot of fear has been sown about the so-called death of cells in your brain or that you can become enormously addicted to it or that your lungs could be damaged by it. There has been a lot of speculation about the possible health risks of using nitrous oxide, but really hard facts based on scientific research have never really been proven. Until recently. In fact, there has been a lot of talk about the subject since 2013 because it was almost never discussed before that time. n2o, or nitrous oxide, was never properly researched until this new study dated October 27, 2016.

Scientifically proven harmless

RIVM, the government research institute, comes up with new facts. RIVM: Dutch government institute that provides information and scientific substantiation of topics related to public health policy.
“We looked at a ‘normal’ amount of ten balloons at a time, and then once a month”
They indicate that there are no serious health consequences when using ten laughing gas balloons at a time and once a month. Their research is here to read. A spokesperson for the Food and Consumer Product Safety Authority (NVWA) who had commissioned RIVM to conduct the investigation stated:
“We could not find any serious health effects with that use.”

Addiction does not occur

There may be some risk of nausea, headaches and some dizziness with frequent use of nitrous oxide. But according to the scientific researchers, the chance of becoming addicted to it is very small. There is no habituation or a strong urge to continue using, unlike many other types of use in the stimulant category.
