Even though there have been numerous studies going back to April and May 2020 showing masks were dangerous and ineffective, German Scientists have even more empirical evidence that wearing masks for any extended amount of time, especially for children, even for 15 minutes is dangerous. Now there’s new evidence that Masks cause damage by increasing the levels of carbon dioxide by 3 fold in a new German peer reviewed study published in the of the American Medical Association (JAMA) Pediatrics. The study conducted with German School children measured carbon dioxide content in “inhaled air,”. The Study: https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jamapediatrics/fullarticle/2781743?appId=scweb found carbon dioxide content in German schoolchildren was at least three-fold higher than German law allows. “Most of the complaints reported by children” in a Germany-wide register on mask-wearing, including irritability, headache and reluctance to go to school, “can be understood as consequences of elevated carbon dioxide levels in inhaled air,” the JAMA Pediatrics paper said. It cited the “dead-space volume of the masks, which collects exhaled carbon dioxide quickly after a short time.” In light of “impairments attributable to hypercapnia,” or the bloodstream buildup of CO2, policymakers should reconsider requiring children to wear masks, it said. The study was peer reviewed by University of Witten/Herdecke’s ethics board. The study required each child to wear different masks for a total of 15 minutes, in contrast to the “several hours” they spend masked in school, the trial protocol said. The authors tried out various masks, including KN95 respirators and surgical masks, on 45 healthy children ages 6-17 in southwest Germany. The room was “well ventilated several times” for each experiment, with CO2 content of ambient air kept under 0.1% by volume. The first 3-minute measurement gauged “baseline” unmasked CO2 levels. The next 3-minute intervals were for CO2 content in “joint inhaled and exhaled air,” inhaled air only and exhaled air only. Two thousand parts per million of CO2, or 0.2%, is the limit for closed rooms under German law, the study said. The child with the lowest CO2 level was three times higher than this limit, while one 7-year-old was measured with 25,000 parts per million.
