mask mandates were purely tyrannical as zero science has
surfaced to support their use.
the contrary, peer-reviewed studies have repeatedly
shown the deleterious effects of wearing a mask for an
extended period of time.

of carbon dioxide, study warns.
The NIOSH eight-hour threshold limit
for safe CO2
concentrations is 0.5 percent.
The researchers found that almost
all of the
studies exceeded that standard.
Mask-wearing can expose children
levels of CO2 in just 3 minutes.
Face masks may raise the risk of stillbirths, testicular dysfunction
and cognitive decline
in children, 'explosive' new research

Mask use) suggests.
A review of dozens of studies on face coverings suggested they can
cause mild carbon dioxide poisoning when worn over long periods.
The German academics who carried out the research,
create a pocket of dead space between the mouth and mask, which
traps the toxic gas.
They say the build-up
of CO2 in pregnant women's bodies could cause complications for
the unborn fetus.
They point out that
CO2 also contributes to oxidative stress, which can affect
cognition and cause testicular issues in men.
But independent doctors
have questioned the conclusions of the study - which never directly
looked at health complications and mask use, describing the link as
One study the German
researchers looked at found that just 0.3 percent prolonged CO2
exposure to both pregnant rats and young mice led to brain
damage, heightened anxiety and poorer memory.
Another found that
male mice exposed to 2.5 percent CO2 for four hours - equal to
0.5 percent for humans - resulted in the destruction of
testicular cells and sperm.
A third study found
that three percent CO2 (equivalent of 0.8 percent for humans) in
pregnant rats caused stillbirth and birth defects.
Alluding to the
surge in stillbirths during the
'pandemic', the German researchers said:
exists that popular mask use may be related to current observations
of a significant rise of 28 percent to 33 percent in stillbirths
'[And] reduced verbal, motor, and overall cognitive performance of
two full standard deviations in scores in children born during the
pandemic,' the researchers wrote in the paper, published in
the journal Heliyon.
But the study
(Possible Toxicity of Chronic Carbon Dioxide exposure associated
with Face Mask use) could not conclusively prove that the masks were
directly responsible for any of these complications.
Dr Stuart Fischer, an emergency care physician in New York,
questioned whether there was a 'toxic buildup' of CO2.
'I wouldn't say this happens, because the body adjusts the
pH, the acid/base balance very quickly.
Respiratory acidosis due to
facemasks is unlikely although short-term side effects might affect
people with chronic lung disease.'
The German research team gathered data from 43 previously published
studies on exposure to CO2, mask-wearing and pregnancy.
They found that,
after wearing a mask for more than five minutes, CO2
levels in the inhaled air rose to between 1.4 percent and 3.2
One mask study conducted in Germany,
researchers measured the CO2
concentration of air behind surgical masks worn by 15 healthy men.
Within 30 minutes, the CO2 concentration rose to roughly 2.8-3.2
In another study in Italy,
scientists measured the air under
surgical masks worn in a lab and found a concentration between 0.22
and 0.29 percent within five minutes.
Masks provide breathing resistance and create a dead space that
leading to more inhaled and re-breathed CO2,
the reviewers said.
The gas makes up around 0.04 percent of all inhaled air, for
comparison, and the Department of Agriculture said safe levels
should be below 0.5 percent for eight-hour exposure.
One study found that exposure to
0.48 percent CO2 for 10 minutes daily for 20 days
in pregnant guinea pigs led to stillbirth and
birth defects in 68 percent of pups.
The researchers then looked at studies that focused on the effect of
similar CO2 levels on animals such as mice and rats.
Mammals such as mice and rats with prolonged exposed to 0.3 percent
carbon dioxide gave birth to offspring which had 'irreversible
neuron damage', the review found.
In total, the researchers looked at studies dating back from the
start of the scientific databases they searched until November 30,

rates, according to one of the most comprehensive meta-analyses of
The main caveat of the research is that the studies looking at the
potential toxic effects of carbon dioxide are animal studies -
because these experiments would not be ethical in humans.
The researchers also noted that none of the studies in their review
looked directly at mask use and miscarriages, infertility and
The researchers also noted that the exact effects of toxic levels of
CO2 on unborn life is not known in great detail.
Carbon dioxide is known to contribute to oxidative stress, which the
researchers suggested would hinder fetal development.
Dr Kevin Bass, cell and molecular biology PhD student, said on
Twitter that the new paper was 'explosive'.
But he said:
'We do not have any
good evidence in pregnant women... of the long-term effects of
mask-wearing and therefore no evidence that these effects occur
'All we have are
animal studies and a clear indication that changes in CO2
concentrations do occur in mask-wearing women.'
Stillbirths and pregnancy
complications rose during the Covid 'pandemic', and preeclampsia and
other pregnancy complications were blamed on the virus.
Factors other than mask-wearing are likely to be at play, such as
hospital closures and delayed care.
It comes after three years of fierce debate about the effectiveness
The biggest review by the
Cochrane Institute, the 'gold standard' of
evidence-based reviews, based in London, found they made

Mask mandates on transportation systems in America were backed by
penalties of up to $3,000 for repeat offenders.
Former director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious
Anthony Fauci initially advised people not to
wear masks, which he later claimed because he was concerned there
would not be enough for healthcare workers.
He went on to advise that everyone 'should' wear a mask...
