WASHINGTON: Children who wear masks to combat the corona epidemic are inhaling excessive levels of toxic carbon dioxide, according to a study by the American Medical Association.
0.04% carbon dioxide is emitted when exposed to the open air, and 1.3% carbon dioxide is emitted when children living in enclosed rooms wear masks.
The baseline carbon dioxide levels that children breathe without a mask were measured for the first 3 minutes for research. Children over the age of seven who wear masks absorb more carbon dioxide. The report also found that 2.5 percent and more than 12 percent breathe toxic air.
A team of scientists from Poland, Germany and Austria published a research report on the Jama Network. An average of 45 children between the ages of 10 and 45, between the ages of 6-17 and 6, were examined for the study.
