Facemasks in the COVID-19 era: A health hypothesis
Baruch Vainshelboim⁎

Abstract
Many countries across the globe utilized medical and non-medical facemasks as non-pharmaceutical intervention for reducing the transmission and infectivity of coronavirus disease-2019 (COVID-19). Although, scientific evidence supporting facemasks’ efficacy is lacking, adverse physiological, psychological and health effects are established. Is has been hypothesized that facemasks have compromised safety and efficacy profile and should be avoided from use. The current article comprehensively summarizes scientific evidences with respect to wearing facemasks in the COVID-19 era, providing prosper information for public health and decisions making. ...

Conclusion
The existing scientific evidences challenge the safety and efficacy of wearing facemask as preventive intervention for COVID-19. The data suggest that both medical and non-medical facemasks are ineffective to block human-to-human transmission of viral and infectious disease such SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19, supporting against the usage of facemasks. Wearing facemasks has been demonstrated to have substantial adverse physiological and psychological effects. These include hypoxia, hypercapnia, shortness of breath, increased acidity and toxicity, activation of fear and stress response, rise in stress hormones, immunosuppression, fatigue, headaches, decline in cognitive performance, predisposition for viral and infectious illnesses, chronic stress, anxiety and depression. Long-term consequences of wearing facemask can cause health deterioration, developing and progression of chronic diseases and premature death. Governments, policy makers and health organizations should utilize prosper and scientific evidence-based approach with respect to wearing facemasks, when the latter is considered as preventive intervention for public health.

Doubt it's an accident.

Seriously, a person wearing a mask at this point in time, isn't going to go through the logic anyhow. "CDC told me masks limit the spread of corona, but it doesn't stop smoke. OK got it!"

This is a form of gas lighting. I swear, they are trying to drive the remaining thinkers crazy. Of all the groups they hate, they hate the thinkers the most.

People believe this because they think the virus travels in droplets, and those droplets are big enough to be stopped by the mask.

Mask study published by NIH suggests N95 Covid masks may expose wearers to dangerous level of toxic compounds linked to seizures and cancer

Yes, it is.

Imagine that. Long mask syndrome.

The headline and the social media takes are a little overheated, like a person wearing a mask all day, so let’s figure out what the article really says and doesn’t say. Now remember, one of Science™’s sacred cows is the religious belief that masks are totally harmless, only a minor inconvenience at worst.

If you dare question that assumption, prepare to face the unholy wrath of the white-coat army.

The Mail’s article reported on an April study courageously published in the reckless journal Ecotoxicology and Environmental Safety, which is available on the NIH's journal aggregating website (but wasn’t originally published or endorsed by the NIH). In the study, researchers tested fourteen different N-95 masks (disposable masks) and washable cloth masks available online, and measured each mask’s TVOC levels.

TVOC is a whole category of toxic volatile organic compounds. The key words being, “toxic” and “volatile.” TVOCs include chemicals like dimethylacetamide (DMAc) and dimethylformamide (DMF), which have been linked to liver injury and — of course — reproductive damage.

TVOCs can irritate the eyes, nose, and throat, can cause difficulty breathing and nausea, and can damage the central nervous system and organs (like the liver). Some TVOCs are carcinogenic. ...

Cotton masks, on the other hand, are now disfavored by Covidians, who consider them worse than useless. The CDC pushed cotton masks during the early pandemic, just cut-up an old t-shirt!, one of its earliest lies (among countless others), back while the bloated health agency was just gearing up its massive covid misinformation campaign. Much later the CDC and its army of evil talking dolls, I mean doctors, would backtrack on cotton and start insisting people purchase N-series masks, which look utterly ridiculous, like something you’re supposed to wear while sanding down a wood deck.

Anyway, the researchers found the ‘preferred’ disposable N-series masks contained up to fourteen times higher TVOC levels than did the cotton masks. The EPA recommends keeping TVOC levels below 0.5 parts per million in indoor air. The N-series sample with the highest level of TVOCs registered about 4.8 parts per million, more than eight times the recommended EPA limit.

So, brilliantly, N95 mask wearers are artificially boosting TVOC levels in their personal air to at least eight times the safe level, which explains the crisp chemical odor that mask-o-philes enjoy. ...

But keep in mind the researchers didn’t prove that anyone got injured. They tested masks, not mask wearers. What they proved is the mass produced N-series disposable masks contain toxic levels of dangerous chemicals. You can logically deduce the downstream effects though, of breathing those dangerous chemicals all day, day in, and day out.

What do you want to bet that, despite this scientific study, Covidians keep wearing their masks anyways? The article hinted at that insane rationale, by quoting a doctor who breezily explained, “all medical treatments have side effects.”

Oh. Thanks for telling us now.

CHICAGO, IL — Local man John Archer has decided to resume wearing a mask in order to let everyone around him know he's terrible at risk analysis.

"I can't stress enough how truly awful I am at understanding risks and benefits," said Mr. Archer. "I just want everyone, even complete strangers, to immediately know that about me."

Mr. Archer stated that wearing a mask has been a game-changer for communicating his mental deficiency. "It's really nice that right from the outset, people know a portion of my brain doesn't function," said Mr. Archer. "If I immediately set the expectation when I meet someone that my decisions will be devoid of rationality, it isn't a surprise later on. Thanks, mask!"

Atlanta College Confirms Temporary COVID Mask Mandate Has Ended

The Atlanta college that reinstated its mask mandate in August confirmed that it has ended the rule after two weeks.

Morris Brown College, described as a historically black liberal arts college, stated in mid-August that it would reimpose mask mandates amid what it said was a rise in COVID-19 cases on campuses near where it’s located. That rule was scheduled to end on Sept. 3.

In a statement to Newsweek, college President Kevin James confirmed that the rule had ended.

I've had personal experiences where I've been exposed to hundreds of vax-shedding sheeple. After my exposure, I started to feel covid-like symptoms. I realized that all these people were shedding spike proteins. Needless to say, I hit the ivermectin, and after 3 days, I felt great.

Ivermectin only inhibits viral replication, it does not kill the virus. If you become infected, take the 'mectin for 7-10 days so that your immune system can completely eradiate the virus.

Not only does masking not work on coronaviruses or influenza viruses, but masking causes real harm to vulnerable populations such as pregnant women, children and adolescents.

The harm being caused by masking is very serious. Even a few minutes of wearing a surgical, cloth or N95 mask and you initiate the following long term damages:

children - irreversible neuron damage, neuron destruction, increased anxiety, impaired learning and memory
adolescents - testicular toxicity
pregnant women - stillbirths, fetal malformations, post implantation loss, lower probability of viable fetuses

Red Drum is a species of fish around here. What is that pic above?
