Sayer J. Founder, writing for Green Med Info reports that a Meta-Analysis of 65 scientific studies reveals that wearing a face mask induces a serious medical condition that has been labeled: Mask-Induced Exhaustion Syndrome (MIES). The research report was written by eight doctors and researchers with broad scientific backgrounds having expertise in cellular anatomy, neuroscience, pathology, pathophysiology, psychology, and medicine.
The research paper reveals that “mask-related changes in respiratory physiology can have an adverse effect on the wearer’s blood gases sub-clinically and in some cases also clinically manifest and, therefore, have a negative effect on the basis of all aerobic life, external and internal respiration, with an influence on a wide variety of organ systems and metabolic processes with physical, psychological and social consequences for the individual human being.”
Masks Make Breathing Difficult
The study proves that due to airway resistance of the mask, “the mask acts as a disturbance factor in breathing and makes the observed compensatory reactions with an increase in breathing frequency and simultaneous feeling of breathlessness plausible (increased work of the respiratory muscles). This extra strain due to the amplified work of breathing against bigger resistance caused by the masks also leads to intensified exhaustion with a rise in heart rate and increased CO2 production.”
Neurological Disorders from Wearing Masks
The restricted airflow causes a significant drop in oxygen intake and a concomitant increase in the intake of carbon dioxide. This causes the mask wearer to be confused disoriented and drowsy. The researchers found that these neurological impairments were a direct result of mask-wearing. “In view of the scientific data, this connection also appears to be indisputable.“
The study shows that “masks also restrict the cognitive abilities of the individual (measured using a Likert scale survey) accompanied by a decline in psycho-motoric abilities and consequently a reduced responsiveness (measured using a linear position transducer) as well as an overall reduced performance capability (measured with the Roberge Subjective Symptoms-during-Work Scale).”
Susceptibility to Accidents While Wearing Masks
The masks caused the wearer to suffer “confusion, impaired thinking, disorientation … and in some cases a decrease in maximum speed and reaction time …. This can become clinically relevant especially with regard to the further reduced ability to react and the additional increased susceptibility to accidents of such patients when wearing masks.”
Bacterial Infections from Masks
It was found that “germs (bacteria, fungi and viruses) accumulate on the outside and inside of the masks due to the warm and moist environment. They can cause clinically relevant fungal, bacterial or viral infections.”
The researchers cited a New York study that evaluated a random sample of 343 participants. The study found that frequent wearing of surgical mask type and N95 masks among healthcare workers during the COVID-19 pandemic “caused headache in 71.4% of participants, in addition to drowsiness in 23.6%, detectable skin damage in 51% and acne in 53% of mask users.”
The researchers further also noted what has been come to be known as “mask mouth.”
There are reports from dental communities about negative effects of masks and are accordingly titled “mask mouth.” Provocation of gingivitis (inflammation of the gums), halitosis (bad breath), candidiasis (fungal infestation of the mucous membranes with Candida albicans) and cheilitis (inflammation of the lips), especially of the corners of the mouth, and even plaque and caries are attributed to the excessive and improper use of masks.
The researchers found that “the main trigger of the oral diseases mentioned is an increased dry mouth due to a reduced saliva flow and increased breathing through the open mouth under the mask. Mouth breathing causes surface dehydration and reduced salivary flow rate. Dry mouth is scientifically proven due to mask wear. The bad habit of breathing through the open mouth while wearing a mask seems plausible because such breathing pattern compensates for the increased breathing resistance, especially when inhaling through the masks. In turn, the outer skin moisture with altered skin flora, which has already been described under dermatological side effects, is held responsible as an explanation for the inflammation of the lips and corners of the mouth (cheilitis). This clearly shows the disease-promoting reversal of the natural conditions caused by masks. The physiological internal moisture with external dryness in the oral cavity converts into internal dryness with external moisture.”
The report noted that “masks act like an acoustic filter and provoke excessively loud speech. This causes a voice disorder. The increased volume of speech also contributes to increased aerosol production by the mask wearer.”
Masks Increase the Spread of Germs
The researchers found that masks actually increase the spread of germs because “the masks act like nebulizers and contribute to the production of very fine aerosols. Smaller particles, however, spread faster and further than large ones for physical reasons. Of particular interest in this experimental reference study was the finding that a test subject wearing a single-layer fabric mask was also able to release a total of 384% more particles (of various sizes) when breathing than a person without.”
Masks Cause Depression in Wearers
There were found also severe psychological effects of mask wearing. “[M]asks also frequently cause anxiety and psycho-vegetative stress reactions in children—as well as in adults—with an increase in psychosomatic and stress-related illnesses and depressive self-experience, reduced participation, social withdrawal and lowered health-related self-care. Over 50% of the mask wearers studied had at least mild depressive feelings.”
Summary of Mask Induced Symptoms
– Increase in dead space volume
– Increase in breathing resistance
– Increase in blood carbon dioxide
– Decrease in blood oxygen saturation
– Increase in heart rate
– Decrease in cardiopulmonary capacity
– Feeling of exhaustion
– Increase in respiratory rate
– Difficulty breathing and shortness of breath
– Feeling of dampness and heat
– Drowsiness (qualitative neurological deficits)
– Decrease in empathy perception
– Impaired skin barrier function with acne, itching and skin lesions

Great article Ed!! I love it!!
Wow!! That was filled with a ton of information! If only the politicians and would look at the research and realize what they are doing to harm us!!
The objective by the conspirators using C-19, a weaponized military virus, and all their vaccines and mask mandates is not for our protection. It is to reduce the earth’s population by 80%. Look up the Georgia Guide Stones! Anyone who takes the jabs is committing eventual suicide.
