The atmosphere that surrounds our planet Earth contains the

right proportions of gases that are absolutely essential for life,

one of those gases is oxygen, making up 21 percent of the air we

breathe, without it humans and animals die within minutes. But too

some of those gases, by themselves are deadly but because air

contains safe proportions of these gases, we can breathe them

without harm.
