It has been known for a number of years that surgical masks and cloth masks are incapable of preventing the escape of aerosols and that their use cannot be found to reduce the spread of any influenza like illness. There are numerous studies to support this claim.
A May 2020 meta-study on pandemic influenza published by the US CDC found that face masks had no effect, neither as personal protective equipment nor as a source control.
A Danish randomized controlled trial with 6000 participants, published in the Annals of Internal Medicine in November 2020, found no statistically significant effect of high-quality medical face masks against SARS-CoV-2 infection in a community setting.
A large randomized controlled trial with close to 8000 participants, published in October 2020 in PLOS One, found that face masks “did not seem to be effective against laboratory-confirmed viral respiratory infections nor against clinical respiratory infection.”
A February 2021 review by the European CDC found no high-quality evidence supporting the effectiveness of non-medical and medical face masks in the community. Furthermore, the European CDC advised against the use of FFP2/N95 masks by the general public.
A July 2020 review by the Oxford Centre for Evidence-Based Medicine found that there is no evidence for the effectiveness of face masks against virus infection or transmission.
A November 2020 Cochrane review found that face masks did not reduce influenza-like illness (ILI) cases, neither in the general population nor in health care workers.
An April 2020 review by two US professors in respiratory and infectious disease from the University of Illinois concluded that face masks have no effect in everyday life, neither as self-protection nor to protect third parties (so-called source control).
An article in the New England Journal of Medicine from May 2020 came to the conclusion that face masks offer little to no protection in everyday life.
A 2015 study in the British Medical Journal BMJ Open found that cloth masks were penetrated by 97% of particles and may increase infection risk by retaining moisture or repeated use.
An August 2020 review by a German professor in virology, epidemiology and hygiene found that there is no evidence for the effectiveness of face masks and that the improper daily use of masks by the public may in fact lead to an increase in infections.
To deprive a child of oxygen, or to restrict it in any way, is not only dangerous to their health, it is absolutely criminal. Oxygen deficiency inhibits brain development and the damage that has taken place as a result CANNOT be reversed. Children need the brain to learn, and the brain needs oxygen to function. We don’t need a clinical study for that. This is simple, indisputable physiology.
We also know that exposure to high levels of carbon dioxide is a dangerous situation that can lead to serious health risks, putting our children in danger, while also limiting their ability to perform their best in school.
According to a study published in JAMA Pediatrics in June of 2021 scientists determined that “there was ample evidence for adverse effects of wearing such masks” and that based on the findings of this study “children should not be forced to wear face masks.”
The study is entitled Experimental Assessment of Carbon Dioxide Content in Inhaled Air With or Without Face Masks in Healthy Children and it reads:
“Many governments have made nose and mouth covering or face masks compulsory for schoolchildren. The evidence base for this is weak. The question whether nose and mouth covering increases carbon dioxide in inhaled air is crucial. A large-scale survey in Germany of adverse effects in parents and children using data of 25 930 children has shown that 68% of the participating children had problems when wearing nose and mouth coverings.
The normal content of carbon dioxide in the open is about 0.04% by volume (ie, 400 ppm). A level of 0.2% by volume or 2000 ppm is the limit for closed rooms according to the German Federal Environmental Office, and everything beyond this level is unacceptable.”
“Most of the complaints reported by children can be understood as consequences of elevated carbon dioxide levels in inhaled air. This is because of the dead-space volume of the masks, which collects exhaled carbon dioxide quickly after a short time. This carbon dioxide mixes with fresh air and elevates the carbon dioxide content of inhaled air under the mask, and this was more pronounced in this study for younger children. This leads in turn to impairments attributable to hypercapnia.”
There are a number of other studies that suggest that masking healthy children poses far more danger than benefit.
The WHO warns of various “side effects” such as difficulty breathing and skin rashes.
A German study shows that face masks are not free of undesirable effects and potential hazards.
Tests conducted by the University Hospital of Leipzig in Germany have shown that face masks significantly reduce the resilience and performance of healthy adults.
A German psychological study with about 1000 participants found “severe psychosocial consequences” due to the introduction of mandatory face masks in Germany.
The Hamburg Environmental Institute warned of the inhalation of chlorine compounds in polyester masks as well as problems in connection with face mask disposal.
The European rapid alert system RAPEX has already recalled 70 mask models because they did not meet EU quality standards and could lead to “serious risks”.
A study by the University of Muenster in Germany found that on N95 (FFP2) masks, Sars-CoV-2 may remain infectious for several days, thus increasing the risk of self-contamination.
In China, several children who had to wear a mask during gym classes fainted and died; the autopsies found a sudden cardiac arrest as the probable cause of death.
It seems as though our policy makers in government and the education system have clearly not conducted a sound risk analysis and instead seem to align themselves with whatever the Centers for Disease Control wants to promote regardless of any scientifically sound backing to their recommendations.
It appears as though an unelected, private corporation masquerading as a public service entity is given the highest authority over local policies with no delegated authority. This is a serious problem that must be rectified.
We as parents must take a stand now to protect our children and put an end to this assault on our liberty and our health.
There is no immediate threat of severe Covid-19 in the majority of children and adolescents. The survival rate for this age group is 99.9% putting children at ZERO percent statistical chance of dying from Covid-19.
It has also been scientifically confirmed that children are not significant vectors for transmission of Covid-19.
The potential for harm in masking our children does not outweigh any perceived benefit and yet the mandates in our schools continue. It is time to demand that our government officials and school policy makers take a look at the real science.
