The following study should be cause for alarm for everyone, but particularly children with Lyme/MSIDS and other autoimmune issues like PANS/PANDAS. Their immature immune systems are already stretched to the limit fighting a war against pathogens, and they already struggle with headaches, concentration, fatigue/malaise, and impaired learning.

Background: Narratives about complaints in children and adolescents caused by wearing a mask are accumulating. There is, to date, no registry for side effects of masks.
Methods: At the University of Witten/Herdecke an online registry has been set up where parents, doctors, pedagogues and others can enter their observations. On 20.10.2020, 363 doctors were asked to make entries and to make parents and teachers aware of the registry.
Results: By 26.10.2020 the registry had been used by 20,353 people. In this publication we report the results from the parents, who entered data on a total of 25,930 children. The average wearing time of the mask was 270 minutes per day. Impairments caused by wearing the mask were reported by 68% of the parents. These included:
- irritability (60%)
- headache (53%)
- difficulty concentrating (50%)
- less happiness (49%)
- reluctance to go to school/kindergarten (44%)
- malaise (42%)
- impaired learning (38%)
- drowsiness or fatigue (37%)
Discussion: This world’s first registry for recording the effects of wearing masks in children is dedicated to a new research question. The frequency of the registry’s use and the spectrum of symptoms registryed indicate the importance of the topic and call for representative surveys, randomized controlled trials with various masks and a renewed risk-benefit assessment for the vulnerable group of children: adults need to collecticely reflect the circumstances under which they would be willing to take a residual risk upon themselves in favor of enabling children to have a higher quality of life without having to wear a mask.
Unfortunately, I highly doubt this study will make a ripple as our public health ‘authorities’ do not care about the negative impacts their draconian policies have as long as they get what they want: continued fear, everyone to take their lucrative treatments and vaccine, and to monitor and track us, among other things.
I found the comments made after the research article quite illuminating. People in the PPE field who are quite experienced in their field make wonderfully sound, logical statements – particularly that our own government is not following the OSHA laws they created some 50 years ago, that there is not ONE study showing that the wide variety of face masks are safe, particularly for prolonged use, and that mask mandates are about policy not science.
Results are in. Masks don’t work and can actually cause serious harm:
