You keep on stating that
The only Truth that is evident is that you have no proof or evidence for the statement
Like I said, there’s no ‘proof or evidence’ about the link between holding one’s breath, and passing out, but most people wouldn’t need such ‘proof or evidence’.
Yet there are those of us who with helmets and other factors, require at least some informed and formal evidence. It is a more structured and sensible approach than listening to someone on the internet stating that research is unnecessary. Do you include the safety and medical professions in your group of "most people wouldn’t need such ‘proof or evidence’"?
I can assure you that evidence and proof are vitally important to these groups, who are making informed decisions as a result..
You state that there is no research - what you mean is that like helmets you have not bothered to look for it, preferring to make meaningless statements.
There are in fact multiple studies on breath-holding and its effects, including those on the effects of deoxygenation, It is used by many safety groups to inform survival, protective equipment, diving, firefighting and a number of other reasons. The research into breath-holding has resulted in less motion in some imaging processes like CT, it has also been shown to be useful in the assessment and review of respiratory disease.
Did you know that the research shows that under certain conditions, it is possible for trained athletes to hold their breath for over 20 minutes?
Your mantra of "the truths are self evident" is once again simply untrue, you are simply avoiding the actual evidence.
