Masking Children is Tragic, Unscientific, & Damaging!

Turns out masking children is awful!

Science is settled in that Children have a very low risk of getting or transmitting COVID-19.

The scientific evidence in total also suggests masks (surgical and cloth masks) are INEFFECTIVE in reducing transmission!

Our kids are being deprived of OXYGEN!

Dr. Margarite Griesz-Brisson MD, PhD, who is one of Europe’s leading neurologists and neurophysiologists, has gone on record stating: “The rebreathing of our exhaled air will without a doubt create oxygen deficiency & a flooding of carbon dioxide. We know that the human brain is very sensitive to oxygen deprivation.”

Masks also are believed to cause an increase in mental illness (anxiety & depression) & suicide among children!

During April to October 2020 in the US, emergency room visits linked to mental health problems (e.g. anxiety) for children aged 5-11 increased by nearly 25% and increased by 31% for those aged 12-17 years old as compared to the same period in 2019.

During the month of June 2020, 25% of persons aged 18 to 24 in the US reported suicidal ideation!

Take the Masks off your Kids!
