Yet this same gas puts "life" in beverages tongue-tingling bubbles that make soft drinks sparkle. It's a life saver in other ways too... inflating collapsible life-rafts and "Mae West" life-jackets; shielding packaged foods against spoilage; processing blood plasma and disease-conquering penicillin.
