After researching the development and use of the helium self-deliverance method for five years as NuTech’s unofficial historian, I can assure readers of this blog of two things with certainty:
1. The “party balloon kit” helium tanks contain 100.00% helium, with no other gases.
2. Misstatements to the contrary have no basis whatsoever in fact, and no “adulterated” tank has ever been found or tested anywhere in the world, to the best of my research knowledge.
If the manufacturer (chiefly Worthington Industries, who sells the product worldwide) wanted to add any amount of other gas (such as oxygen or nitrogen) to the contents of the helium tank, it would have to be clearly marked on the packaging, for to adulterate the gas in any way without obvious labeling would be a violation of U.S. and foreign law.
No state or nation has ever been proven to have done so. None.
Let’s put this issue to rest. The “party balloon” helium kits contain 100% helium, period. For a complete description of the origin, development, and use of the “helium system” of self-deliverance, please see Chapter 6, “Robbing Death of Its Sting,” from my forthcoming book, “In Search of Gentle Death: The Fight for your Right to Die With Dignity,” which will be available for sale in late April 2012. The release date of the book will be announced here. — Richard N. Cote’ / email@example.com
