    Our air is 78% Nitrogen, 21% oxygen, 0.9% argon and 0.1 CO2. We would die if we breathed pure oxygen. The concentration of oxygen would overwhelm the lungs capabilities of absorbing oxygen and it would bind to surface proteins and interrupt the central nervous system. Fluid accumulates in the lungs and capillaries are damaged. Alveoli with damaged capillaries have a lower blood supply meaning that you have to breathe more to get more oxygen. The oxygen also breaks down epithelial membranes and proteins.

    I was correct when I said that we need air to breathe, not oxygen.

    We need oxygen but not nitrogen specifically. Nitrogen stops the oxygen from combusting and being poisonous, just need another buffer gas.

    We need air to breathe, food and water.
    Hate to ruin this, but some people genuinely believe they can live off air and light alone ('cosmic micro food')...

    But the air would be useless if there was no oxygen in it.

    There's nothing we can all agree on. There are people that still think the earth is flat, the centre of the universe and is 6000 years old
