this is a new myth for me, never heard of it. But I heard that if the gas leaks due to the glass crack from accident, it's not enough to harm human beings

I'm really curious where you heard such nonsense? I mean who told you there's a "problem with the gas pockets going"? Was it a salesman in the RPTV section of a TV store or some random homeless guy on a bus bench?

The gas inside is inert. That means it doesn't engage in chemcial reactions. About the only ways for an inert gas to harm you would be for:


(a) it to be radon, which will inert undergoes radioactive decay. Plasmas don't have any radon in them, but your basement or foundation almost certainly does. Please, do not be alarmed.


(b) you to suck in so much of it that it interferes with respiration. I doubt that 1000 plasmas have enough gas in them to achieve this phenomenon. Just in case, if you are in an earthquake in a plasma warehouse and they all crack open, try to hold your breath and get outside. :)

I was standing near my plasma the other evening and smelled something strange. It turned out to only be the beans I had with dinner.
