Is scuba diving bad for your health?
Can I be seriously hurt while scuba diving? Yes.

What happens if a diver goes too deep?
But if a diver rises too quickly, the nitrogen forms bubbles in the body. In extreme cases, it can cause paralysis or death if the bubbles are in the brain. Nitrogen narcosis: Deep dives can cause so much nitrogen to build up in the brain that you can become confused and act as though you’ve been drinking alcohol.
