What would happen if your whistle register singing was helium based?

Someone told me my whistle register could be helium based. Whenever I go into it successfully, my voice goes higher about 4 steps.

Update:

Ok. I thought they were joking, I just wanted someone to say that so I would know.

Update 2:

Could please answer that question, then?

    They were joking...they also didn't know what you meant by "whistle register", from what I can gather from reading their answer. Unless you are capable of producing helium in your lungs or throat, then your whistle register is not helium based ;)

    Edit: Well, the sound would be even higher and brighter in timbre due to the difference in density of helium gas to normal air (mix of oxygen, CO2 and nitrogen, mostly)
