Doctor Shows How Wearing A Face Mask Affects Your Body

We are slowly but surely returning back to normal after the coronavirus pandemic, but all the safety measures remain in almost every country in the world. Going back to our lives as they were before will be almost impossible, and the world will never be the same again. However, there’s no choice but to go along with it, and we should all respect the measures that have been put.

Many people refuse to wear a face mask because they believe the threat of the virus is over, a mask doesn’t protect them from the virus, or the most common “I can’t breathe with a mask on”. Well, if you’re one of those people, Dr. Megan Hall has something to tell you.

The doctor ran an experiment in which she wore 4 different masks for 5 minutes to see how they affect oxygen levels and heart rate, and the results will prove you wrong.

So, if you believe that you “can’t breathe” while wearing a mask – you’re wrong! We realize that there have been many myths on the internet concerning face masks and how they “might complicate breathing if worn for long periods of time”. The thing is, though, that healthcare workers, surgeons, and scientists often wear face masks for longer periods of time, and it does NOT result in dangerous oxygen level depletion.

The feeling of lack of air due to a ‘mechanical obstruction’ depends on the face mask you’re using, and it’s most likely caused because you’re not used to wearing the mask.

Dr. Hall’s post made its way on Reddit, where people had a lot to say about those who argue that “they can’t breathe because of the face mask” and choose to put themselves and everyone else in danger.
