Evidence Children Do Not Need Masks At School

While masks provide adults with a comfort, that we are doing something to prevent the spread of Covid, data clearly shows that Masks do very little to prevent transmission, and pose a great risk and danger to our children.

 

Because of this physical and developmental risk, I formally request that the mask requirement while indoors for the children become a parent choice.

 

Please read the following. It is backed up with Studies and data from all over the world.

Do Masks Stop the Transmission of Covid?

 

It appears that Masks are ineffective at preventing the transmission of Covid.

 

2009 Randomized Controlled study [1]looked at the effectiveness of masks in prevent the transmission of the common cold. They took 2 groups of healthcare workers, one group masked and the other with no face covering.

“Of the 8 symptoms recorded daily, subjects in the mask group were significantly more likely to experience headache during the study period (P < .05).”

 

The conclusion of the Study was that Face mask use in health care workers has not been demonstrated to provide benefit in terms of cold symptoms or getting colds.”

 

A systematic review by Cambridge [2]found that none of the studies reviewed showed a benefit from wearing a mask, in either HCW or community members in households (H). See summary Tables 1 and 2 therein.

 

In another Systematic review by the “Influenza Journal” [3] they found that “There were 17 eligible studies. … None of the studies established a conclusive relationship between mask/respirator use and protection against influenza infection.”

 

A study of nearly 10 Million people in Wuhan China [4]  showed that a-symptomatic spread of Covid did not occur at all.

 

In Conclusion, there is insufficient evidence to conclude that the children wearing masks is providing any benefit to reduce the transmission of Covid to A.) the children themselves and B.) the adults that are around the children.

 

Are children in danger of Covid?

A well-structured recent study[5]    published November 30 2021[6]   showed NO deaths in healthy kids between ages 5-11. This research is saying that the risk to children in England as a whole of catching and then dying of Covid, often called the “mortality rate”, was two in a million. That’s a survivability rate of 99.999998%

Are Masks for Children Dangerous?

 

“These levels are dangerous to health” – New study[7]  on face masks for children.

 

Headaches, fatigue, problems concentrating – these are just some of the consequences associated with children wearing masks. Based on his new study, Professor Harald Walach concluded: “This nonsense should be stopped immediately if it is true that our society is driven by scientific data and rationality.”

 

 Children have been required to wear face masks for the past few weeks and months. The benefits were unclear, as were the harms. At least the damage is now clear. Because we did a study measuring the carbon dioxide levels in children under the mask. It was published in “JAMA Pediatrics” [7]  

 

The researchers found that children who inhaled air with their masks on contained more than 6 times the legal safety limit for closed rooms, as set by the German Federal Environmental Office. The safety limit is 0.2%, while the air the masked children inhaled contained more than 1.3% carbon dioxide.

 

“The effect was most detrimental to the youngest children, with one 7-year-old inhaling air containing 2.5% carbon dioxide, more than 12 times the safe limit.”

NOTE

  • 2.5% Carbon Dioxide is 25,000 PPM
Hazard scale CO2

Another study that included 26,000 German children[8]   reported that 68% of the children reported adverse effects from mask wearing.

 

Effects of Low-Level Carbon Dioxide Poisoning:

 

In a Scientific review that used 99 different Peer Reviewed studies [9]  there are several findings that are pertinent to our discussion of Children wearing Face Masks for even short-term periods. I will highlight the most important.

NOTE: A total of 99 full-text articles were reviewed. Only peer-reviewed articles pertaining to original research or review of experimental or human studies directly associated with health and related response to exposure to CO2, which clearly identified the air concentration of CO2, were considered.

 

  • Human experimental studies have suggested that short-term CO2 exposure beginning at 1000 ppm affects cognitive performances including decision making and problem resolution.
  • Respiratory symptoms have been indicated in children exposed to indoor CO2concentrations higher than 1000 ppm. 
  • Respiratory acidosis corresponds to CO2 Acute or acutely worsening chronic respiratory acidosis causes headache, confusion, anxiety, drowsiness, and stupor (CO2narcosis). Slowly developing, stable respiratory acidosis may be well tolerated, but could result in memory loss, sleep disturbances, excessive daytime sleepiness, and personality changes.
  • Respiratory acidosis appears by definition from exposure to a CO2concentration of 10,000ppm for at least 30min in a healthy adult with a moderate physical load (DFG, 2012). 
    • Let’s remember we are talking about children with CO2 loads of up to 25,000 ppm
  • A study in schoolchildren exposed to indoor CO2concentrations higher than 1000 ppm showed significantly higher risk for dry cough and rhinitis (654 children of 46 classrooms)
  • A 200 ppm increase in indoor CO2concentration (range, 1000–2000 ppm) in 45 day care centers (DCCs) was significantly associated with reported wheezing in the 3186 attending children, and a positive trend was observed between CO2 concentration and the prevalence of asthma.
  • Twenty-two participants were exposed to CO2at 600, 1000, and 2500 ppm (three 2.5-h sessions, one day; artificially elevated CO2 concentrations) in an office-like chamber. Statistically significant decrements occurred in cognitive performance (decision making, problem resolution) starting at 1000ppm (Satish et al., 2012).
  • Exposures to CO2at concentrations of 3000 ppm, including bioeffluents (An organic contaminant, especially an atmospheric pollutant that emanates from the bodies of humans or animals), significantly increased the intensity of reported headache, fatigue, and sleepiness. In cognitive performance tests, the speed of addition was significantly reduced in CO2 concentration at 3000 ppm including bioeffluents.

CONCLUSION

Based on the evidence provided we have to weigh the Risks and Benefits. From the data provided, it appears that we have a moderate to severe risk for children wearing masks to experience cognitive impairment and possible long-term damage, and a very low benefit, if any benefit at all, at slowing transmission of Covid19.

 

Therefore, it seems that the policy for wearing masks is based on political reasons, and has failed to consider the full weight of the available scientific data.

 

It would greatly benefit the children’s health, both physical and mental, to have the option to remove the masks while in the school setting. The risks to parents and others who live with the children are for the parents to decide for themselves. The constitution of the United States clearly states and is written for INDIVIDUAL LIBERTIES, meaning that we decide what is best for ourselves. If a parent is willing to assume the risk of their child transmitting Covid 19 at home, that it is within that’s parents right to choose for their child, whether they wear a mask, or not.
