20 facts about wearing masks after a year of experience and data will have you rethink your plans.
Americans are now learning that government-imposed mandates during the COVID-19 crisis demanding healthy Americans wear facemasks was and is unnecessary.
Practically everyone in the elite medical establishment including the Surgeon General, the World Health Organization, CDC and even Dr. Anthony Fauci himself were advising against the use of face masks.
1. There is no scientific evidence affirming the value of face coverings in preventing the transmission of viruses. Recent studies have been unable to establish any conclusive relationship between mask/respirator use and protection against influenza infection, according to nationally-recognized neurosurgeon Dr. Russell Blaylock.
2. New studies related to COVID-19 show it’s unlikely masks would be any more effective against it than against the flu virus. Surgeon General Dr. Jerome Adams said in March 2020 that: “The data doesn’t show that wearing masks in public will help people during the coronavirus pandemic.”
In its April 13, 2020 directive, the CDC recommended the use of masks only when it was difficult to maintain social distancing or in areas of significant community-based transmission.
3. Mask mandates may have done more harm than good in most places in America. Perfectly healthy young adults and teenagers were forced to inhale their own Co2 instead of fresh air. Employees (especially in supermarkets, other stores and businesses) were forced to wear the masks for the complete day causing abnormal fatigue and respiratory issues. Many accidents were caused by drivers reporting lightheadedness. On April 23, 2020, it was evident there were problems when a man crashed his SUV into a pole in Lincoln Park New Jersey. Police reports show he fainted due to “insufficient oxygen intake/excessive carbon dioxide intake.”
4. Nationally-recognized neurosurgeon Dr. Russell Blaylock shows recent studies of health care workers using N95 masks indicated increasing episodes of headaches caused by a reduction in blood oxygenation ( hypoxia ) or an elevation in blood Co2 ( hypercapnia).
5. The excessive use of N95 masks can reduce blood oxygenation by as much as 20%, leading to a loss of consciousness.
6. Dr. Fauci’s own National Institutes of Health admit that inhaling high levels of carbon dioxide may be life-threatening. High levels of Co2 are associated with headaches, vertigo, double vision, inability to concentrate, tinnitus, seizures or suffocation due to displacement of air.
7. The use of face masks can make you more susceptible to COVID-19. Dr. Blaylock observes that a drop in oxygen levels is associated with lower immunity. Hypoxia can inhibit the type of main immune cells used to fight viral infections called the CD4+T-lymphocyte. By increasing the level of a compound called hypoxia inducible factor-1 ( HIF-1 ), which inhibits T-lymphocytes and stimulates a powerful immune inhibitor cell called the Tregs, face coverings could be setting us all up for contracting COVID-19 and other infections.
8. Masks can also cause people to rebreathe viruses within their own bodies instead of expelling them, thus concentrating them in the lungs and nasal passages ( eventually even traveling to the brain ) which can even lead to the deadly “cytokine storm” that is prominent with many COVID-19 victims.
9. Masks are especially dangerous to cancer victims or those suffering from cardiovascular or cerebrovascular diseases in which low levels of oxygen can promote inflammation that leads to the spread of cancers as well as to heart attacks and strokes.
10. 15 million fabric masks given to pharmacists by the Belgian government last summer may be toxic, according to a confidential report from Sciensano, the Belgian Institute for Public Health.
The face masks were manufactured in Asia by the Luxembourg-based company Avrox, and may contain nanoparticles of silver and titanium dioxide that when inhaled could damage the respiratory tract.
“Sooner or later you can ingest these nanoparticles, especially if the mask is washed and worn regularly. They can easily end up in the lungs and blood,” toxicologist Alfred Bernard said.
11. According to toxicologist Dominique Lison (UCLouvain), carriers are at risk of developing pneumonia, especially if they already have underlying respiratory problems. His colleague Alfred Bernard also advises against using mouth masks with such nanoparticles.
12. “Maskne” is a term coined by doctors and dentists for breakouts caused by a mask’s hot, humid environment. People using fabric softeners or harsh detergents are harmed because of softner ingredients of quaternary ammonium compounds. They fight against static but cause skin and respiratory irritation, according to a study done by the NYU School of Medicine.
13. “Mask mouth” causes bad breath, tooth decay and gum inflammation.it can lead to Candida Overgrowth. It is basically a yeast infection on your mouth. Mark Fisher, a dentist practicing in Georgia, said some people tend to breathe through their mouths when they wear masks.
“When you breathe through your mouth, it dries your mouth out,” Fisher said. “Without the humidity from the air, it worsens this condition. Dry mouth leads to bad breath, and it is also linked to tooth decay and inflammation of the gums…You need to breath through your nose.”
14. Now experts say avoid adjusting the masks. The Moffitt Cancer Center: “If your mask touches another part of your body that is potentially contaminated with the virus… you are at risk for infection.”
15. In a controlled study of 1607 hospital workers working full-time in selected high-risk wards for four consecutive weeks, “the rates of all infection outcomes were highest in the cloth mask…Cloth masks should not be recommended for Hospital Care Workers, particularly in high-risk situations, and guidelines need to be updated.”
16. In 2020, we learned the masks cause reduced blood-oxygen levels leading to reduced mental clarity, lethargy, and reduced immunities. This condition, known as “hypoxia,” has caused persons to lose focus and make bad decisions which can be dangerous to others. People have been falling asleep and fainting when doing routine tasks while wearing masks.
17. Why aren’t February 2021 publications not being reported by mainstream media indicating Carbon-dioxide toxicity is a result of mask wearing? This is a reduced ability of the body to expel carbon dioxide (a waste product from all cellular activity).
18. Moisture retention in lungs is increasing due to the masks causing retention of water vapor in the lungs. Moisture retention in lungs is a leading factor associated with pneumonia, bronchitis, viral and bacterial infections, asthma, and other respiratory ailments. Fluid build-up in the lungs can be very hard to treat and can result in death in serious cases of pneumonia and other ailments. If the lungs cannot take in dry air and expel humid air, then serious congestion may develop in the lungs.
19. Increased facial touching is resulting in viral / bacterial spread. Persons who wear masks are five times more likely to touch their faces continually throughout the day. They continue to adjust the mask with their hands and touch their faces in the process. It is widely known that repeatedly touching the face and touching other surfaces is a major cause of viral and bacterial spread. This increased spread of infection can go from either the mask wearer to others or from others to the wearer. Even if a person wears gloves and then touches his face and other surfaces, the result is the same.
20. More effort to breathe means additional respiratory distress, especially with individuals who are tired, elderly, sick, or immunity compromised. Most legitimate medical efforts aimed at reducing respiratory ailments seek to improve the individual’s ability to breathe, not block it, impede it, or make it more labored.
Remember, it was U.S. officials, including the Surgeon General of the United States, Jerome Adams, who initially urged people to not buy and wear masks in an effort to protect themselves from COVID-19. In an interview, Adams said that wearing face masks could actually increase a person’s risk of contracting the coronavirus.
“You can increase your risk of getting it by wearing a mask if you are not a health care provider,” Adams said. “Folks who don’t know how to wear them properly tend to touch their faces a lot and actually can increase the spread of coronavirus,” he added.
Although he later relented to public and political pressure, Surgeon General Jerome initially tweeted, “Seriously people – STOP BUYING MASKS! They are NOT effective in preventing general public from catching #Coronavirus.”
