  1. I am concerned for allergic reaction from latex sensitive persons because of the latex balloon Also, she blew up the balloon with her breath, which contains untold germs.

  2. As an alumni of BU who is now a Lab Safety professional, I found many things in this video concerning – the lack of PPE when handling liquid nitrogen and the consumption of food in lab, in particular.
