If Covid doesn’t getcha, your mask will

Well isn’t that special. A group of parents in Gainesville, FL, sent 6 face masks to a lab at the University of Florida, requesting an analysis of contaminants found on the masks after they had been worn. The resulting report found that five masks were contaminated with bacteria, parasites, and fungi, including three with dangerous pathogenic and pneumonia-causing bacteria.

YIKES! The analysis detected 11 dangerous pathogens on the masks.

And then there’s this …

A German study of mask use in children found the CO2 inhaled by the children when masked is more than 6 times the level the German Federal Environmental Office deemed acceptable in a normal environment. The children reach this high level within 3 minutes of wearing the mask. Children under normal conditions in schools wear such masks for an average of 270 minutes.
