Leading story on Tucker Carlson, Hannity, and Ingraham yesterday evening was President Biden’s stumble while running up the stairs to board Air Force One, clearly, according to them, a sign of his failing health and mental fitness.
If you have any Republican friends at this point, or hear talk that this should concern us regarding the cognitive ability of our president, know this:
Published 28th October, 202o in the BMJ (British Medical Journal).
..face masks invariably block parts of the lower peripheral visual field, even in people who do not wear glasses. Visual information
from the lower peripheral field is important for detecting and avoiding nearby hazards, and for placing our steps safely. Wearing a face mask reduces the wearer’s opportunity to use this important sensory information during walking and may therefore increase the chance of tripping or falling…
So as Paul Harvey would say, now you know “the rest of the story”.
And please take care when wearing your mask, stumbles are more common.
Please share widely!
