I am wondering what would happen to the human body, when exposed to the high 
concentration of low-temperature ("cold") plasma, and via what principles 
would it affect the body(e.g. thermal and electrical).
By cold plasmas I am referring to plasmas which can exist at room temperatures
(they have been produced). Therefore, would they also be harmful to the body, 
as regular “hot” plasmas would?
