    Oh, I disagree. This one would give you a completely NOVEL perspective on some key points of the Covid farce. Politics galore in this one! But the pessimism might grow at an exponential rate.

    Yes, it is. And yet, the insults persist, and have for some time. The slow decline people are noticing more and more recently did not begin yesterday.

    This was a very serious typo. It was supposed to read "should not" be occurring on a formal level. The whole point is to have no documentation, no explicit agreements and if possible to maintain at least 2-3 degrees of separation between the donors and the final recipients of the funding.

    The common sense interpretation of the literature is: Even though humans are robust, adaptable creatures with many physiological buffering and compensatory mechanisms to mitigate or negate potential damage, it is generally not desirable to elicit an abnormal physiological response during the development of a fetus or child.

    This is one of the most relatable comments I have seen.

    The mechanism of why you feel shitty when wearing a mask is probably related to restricted airflow and the perceived effort of breathing. I think that ďair hungerĒ is not usually correlated well with O2 levels unless O2 is severely low. CO2 is more the driver of air hunger.

    Donít know, and doubt it would be useful to know.

    From that study:

    Thus it is hard to believe that these masks serve as a reducer of oxygen uptake, but they may be acting as a psychological restriction over spontaneous breathing of the active surgeon.
    I think I agree with that.

    That is worrisome - for anyone who actually cares about public health, not just their corner of the hospital. This is yet another misquoted article whose estimation of clinical significance was intended to selectively apply to 0.1% of the population.
    Definitely a study applied here way beyond its purpose, but these are the studies of masks and O2 that we have. There are probably a few more out there.

    Wait until you guys look at the evidence on whether surgical masks reduce infection rates in actual surgery. Youíll be demanding your surgeons not wear masks when you go under the knife!

    Whatever the mechanism, I know working a few hours straight in one of those things definitely had noticeable negative effects. Thankfully a short lunch break in the car without it got me clear of most of them. The headache kinda persisted throughout the day.

    So, for whatever reason, masks reduce your o2 levels, elevate your heart rate and the impaired breathing causes anxiety and likely raises your cortisol levels. Why the fuck do we have children wearing them?

    I think that humans are very sensitive to partial pressures of O2 (ratio for sake of argument). I donít know the physiology but know in the laboratory safety environment O2 sensors are set to alarm when it deviates slightly from 20%. Classical cases involves suffocating when a lot of liquid nitrogen evaporates rapidly. (Same for confined spaces, welding in confined spaces, etc.). Itís often not toxins, itís suffocation. (Helium oxygen divers may know the requirements too).

    I doubt masks can change partial pressure much (altitude doesnít - just changes amounts). Maybe a very moist mask does? Any ideas?

    Are you inferring that even with a Republican Federal Government that there were closet Democrats that are blue on the inside and red on the outside and have been white anting the Trump government and previous conservative governments from the inside?
