COVID-19 Face Masks



Higher Incidence Of COVID-19 Found Among Consistent Mask-Wearers: Study (Naveen Athrappully, Epoch Times, 11/27/23)

People who wore protective masks were found to be more likely to contract COVID-19 infections than those who didn’t, according to a recent Norwegian study. The peer-reviewed study, published in the journal Epidemiology and Infection on Nov. 13, analyzed mask use among 3,209 individuals from Norway. Researchers followed them for 17 days, and then asked the participants about their use of masks. The team found that there was a higher incidence of testing positive for COVID-19 among people who used masks more frequently.

Masks Are Ruining Children’s Lives: Dr. Makis Uncovers How Bad It Is (Dr. William Makis, The Vigilant Fox, 09/08/23)

When it comes to masks and children, it’s all harm and no benefit. When you put a mask on a child, the toxic CO2 exposure after only minutes of mask wearing, starts damaging and killing off their neurons. Younger children who are placed in an environment of unscientific and unethical mask mandates, experience developmental difficulties and delays, learning problems, speech problems and socio-emotional problems. We have not begun to fully understand the damage that has been done to kids via masks that are ineffective in a respiratory viral outbreak and mask mandates that were implemented in schools and in society. Parents must draw a line in the sand and not allow mask mandates of any kind ever again.

Do Not Comply On Planes And Trains And Children (Dr. Robert Malone, 09/07/23)

Putting N95s on children fits the definition of child abuse. A recent paper published, titled “Possible toxicity of chronic carbon dioxide exposure associated with face mask use, particularly in pregnant women, children and adolescents — A scoping review” (Heliyon 2023 Apr;9(4):Epub 2023 Mar 3) had this to say about toxicities associated with mask use for children and pregnant women:

“A significant rise in carbon dioxide occurring while wearing a mask is scientifically proven in many studies, especially for N95-masks due to their higher deadspace and breathing resistance.

“Fresh air has around 0.04% CO2 while masks bear a possible chronic exposure to low level carbon dioxide of 1.41–3.2% CO2 of the inhaled air in reliable human experiments.

“Animal experimental data shows deleterious proven effects of elevated CO2 of inhaled air in the long term with threshold values of above 0.3%, 0.5% and 0.8% (Neuron destruction, impaired memory and learning, increased anxiety, destruction of cells in testes, stillbirth, and birth defects). The risk for children’s mental development starts at levels of above 0.3%, to adolescent male sexual development at levels of above 0.5% , as well as to unborn life at levels of above 0.8% resulting in reduced cognitive performance, reduced fertility and stillbirths.

“There is circumstantial evidence that popular mask use may be related to current observations of a significant rise of 28% to 33% in stillbirths worldwide and a reduced verbal, motor, and overall cognitive performance of two full standard deviations in scores in children born during the pandemic.”

Let’s be very clear, there is documented evidence that verbal motor and overall cognitive performance in children born during the pandemic and also in school aged children subjected to pandemic “public health” policies is much lower. How much of this in children could be from the daily eight or more hours of mask use during school and day care? Federal funded school programs have required mask used on all children, except babies, right up until Sept 2022. It is clear that these will return if the CDC deems that COVID-19 positivity tests reach a certain threshold.

COVID-19: What’s In Your Mask? (Association of American Physicians & Surgeons, 08/29/23)

If you are planning to pull out your mask again as some jurisdictions consider new mandates, you might want to ask what it’s made of. Many have been found to release toxic levels of TVOCs . . . The highest amount of TVOCs had 4,808 cubic meters per microgram, which is about 4.8 parts per million–more than eight times the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) recommended limit of 0.5 parts per million in indoor air. Tight-fitting disposable masks are much worse than cotton masks. Actual health effects are not known, but people forced to wear masks for prolonged periods of time frequently complain of symptoms such as headaches and nausea, which TVOCs can cause. Some TVOCs can cause central nervous system or liver damage, and even cancer…

Secret Letter To CDC: Top Epidemiologist Suggests Agency Misrepresented Scientific Data To Support Mask Narrative (Megan Redshaw, Epoch Times, 08/21/23)

Documents recently obtained from the National Institutes of Health suggest public health officials used inaccurate information and misrepresented medical research to advance their policy objective that masks prevent severe COVID-19 and virus transmission — despite opposing scientific evidence received from experts.

In a recently obtained letter (pdf) sent in November 2021 to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), top epidemiologist Michael Osterholm, director of the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy at the University of Minnesota, and seven colleagues informed the agency it was promoting flawed data and excluding data that did not reinforce their narrative.

The letter warned the agency that misrepresenting data on trusted websites such as the CDC and the COVID-19 Real-Time Learning Network — jointly created by the CDC and Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA) — would “damage the credibility of science,” endanger public trust by “misrepresenting the evidence,” and give the public “false expectations” masking would protect them from the SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes COVID-19.

“We believe the information and recommendations as provided may actually put an individual at increased risk of becoming infected with SARS-CoV-2 and for them to experience a serious or even life-threatening infection,” Mr. Osterhom wrote.

Face Masks May Raise Risk Of Stillbirths, Testicular Dysfunction And Cognitive Decline Due To Build-Up Of Carbon Dioxide, Study Warns (Caitlin Tilley / Daily Mail – 04/22/23)

A review of dozens of studies on face coverings suggested they can cause mild carbon dioxide poisoning when worn over long periods. The German academics who carried out the research believe masks create a pocket of dead space between the mouth and mask, which traps the toxic gas. They say the build-up of CO2 in pregnant women’s bodies could cause complications for the unborn fetus. They point out that CO2 also contributes to oxidative stress, which can affect cognition and cause testicular issues in men.

Masks Cause Headaches, Itching, And Lower Oxygen Intake: Study COVID-19 (Naveen Athrappully / The Epoch Times – 04/09/23)

A systematic review of 2,168 studies that looked into the adverse effects of wearing masks during the COVID-19 pandemic has found that the practice led to negative health consequences, including itching, headaches, and restriction of oxygen.

Stop Masking Children: They Need To Interact With The Microbial World (Byram W. Bridle – 05.31.22)

I want to make parents aware of two harmful aspects of masking children that I am in a position to comment on:

1. Isolating children from the microbial world promotes the development of chronic diseases.

Young children need to interact with the microbial world. It is absolutely essential to the proper development of their immune systems. I am not going to delve into too many scientific details here because I wrote about this in an article that I published in The Conversation in March 2021. It is entitled “A year of COVID-19 lockdown is putting kids at risk of allergies, asthma and autoimmune diseases”.

In a nutshell, we are born with naïve and immature immune systems. Our immune systems don’t fully mature until well into the teenage years, with most of that development occurring between birth and about six years of age.

The ability of the immune system to self-regulate relies on interactions with the microbial world; especially via interactions with other people, particularly family members. This allows their immune system to learn to differentiate between things that are dangerous and those that are not. In turn, their immune system will become equipped to respond to dangers while preventing potentially harmful responses to things that pose no threat, such as self and inert environmental molecules and normal gut-resident bacteria, etc.

Isolating a young child from non-dangerous microbes in their environment compromises the ‘immunoregulatory’ components of their immune system. A dysregulated immune system often manifests itself in the form of allergies, asthma, and autoimmune diseases.

I felt compelled to write about this concern in May 2021 after I witnessed children being chronically isolated for more than a year. One year was the timepoint at which I felt that substantial, potentially irreparable harm could be done to children’s immune systems. I am appalled that many children have now been enduring this for well over two years, with no end in sight for some.

Masking is controversial and, arguably, largely ineffective against preventing the spread of viruses in ways other than via coughing and sneezing. However, they can pose a reasonable barrier to larger environmental particles (e.g., dust particles, dander, pollen, etc.) and bacteria. Throw in the excessive use of things like antibacterial hand sanitizers, being locked down in homes and lack of physical interactions, and we are now well on our way to having a micro-generation of children who will have been isolated like no other human beings in history. Unfortunately, these children will now be part of an unanticipated experiment on a global scale; one to really assess the validity of the so-called ‘hygiene hypothesis’. Although I would like to be wrong on this one, basic immunological principles suggest that very young children that had to endure COVID-19 lockdown policies might be faced with the highest rates of autoimmune diseases, allergies, and asthma in human history.

2. Masking children harms speech development.

I am not a formally trained expert in child development or speech pathology. However, I do have a child who has been dealing with delayed speech development. Through this, I have learned that observing lip, mouth and tongue placement and movements is critical to the proper development of speech. For example, here is a chart known as a ‘vowel ladder’ that my wife and I use to work with my son to improve his enunciation…

Moving Forward

The moral of this story is to stop isolating our children from their microbial world. Let them get dirty. Let them interact with other children. Let them hug family members and friends. Consider getting a cat or dog that they can interact closely with. Take them on hikes in the woods or countryside. Definitely have them wash their hands with regular soap, but cut down on the antibacterial soaps and sanitizers. Every time normal flora on the skin are killed one risks having them re-populated with pathogens.

And, for goodness sake, let children see the mouths of others so they can learn to speak properly.

What harm is done from the last two-and-a-half years is done. But, please, let’s not keep locking down, physically distancing and masking our children ad nauseum. Not for SARS-CoV-2, not for the annual flu, not for monkeypox. Not for anything unless it is demonstrated via transparent, objective, publicly disclosed and openly debated science to be a genuine threat to the lives of a substantial proportion of children…

There is no conclusive evidence supporting claims that any of these restrictive measures worked to reduce viral transmission or deaths. Lockdowns were ineffective, school closures were ineffective, mask mandates were ineffective, and masks themselves were and are ineffective and harmful.

New Study Exposes Dirty Mask


A Group Of Parents Sent Their Kids’ Face Masks To A Lab For Analysis. Here’s What They Found (TownHall – 06/15/21)

A group of parents in Gainesville, FL, concerned about potential harms from masks, submitted six face masks to a lab for analysis. The resulting report found that five masks were contaminated with bacteria, parasites, and fungi, including three with dangerous pathogenic and pneumonia-causing bacteria. No viruses were detected on the masks, although the test is capable of detecting viruses.

The analysis detected the following 11 alarmingly dangerous pathogens on the masks:

• Streptococcus pneumoniae (pneumonia)

• Mycobacterium tuberculosis (tuberculosis)

• Neisseria meningitidis (meningitis, sepsis)

• Acanthamoeba polyphaga (keratitis and granulomatous amebic encephalitis)

• Acinetobacter baumanni (pneumonia, blood stream infections, meningitis, UTIs— resistant to antibiotics)

• Escherichia coli (food poisoning)

• Borrelia burgdorferi (causes Lyme disease)

• Corynebacterium diphtheriae (diphtheria)

• Legionella pneumophila (Legionnaires’ disease)

• Staphylococcus pyogenes serotype M3 (severe infections—high morbidity rates)

• Staphylococcus aureus (meningitis, sepsis)

Half of the masks were contaminated with one or more strains of pneumonia-causing bacteria. One-third were contaminated with one or more strains of meningitis-causing bacteria. One-third were contaminated with dangerous, antibiotic-resistant bacterial pathogens. In addition, less dangerous pathogens were identified, including pathogens that can cause fever, ulcers, acne, yeast infections, strep throat, periodontal disease, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, and more.

The face masks studied were new or freshly-laundered before wearing and had been worn for 5 to 8 hours, most during in-person schooling by children aged 6 through 11. One was worn by an adult. A t-shirt worn by one of the children at school and unworn masks were tested as controls. No pathogens were found on the controls. Proteins found on the t-shirt, for example, are not pathogenic to humans and are commonly found in hair, skin, and soil.

Serious Illness On The Rise In Children


Is A Mask That Covers The Mouth And Nose Free From Undesirable Side Effects In Everyday Use And Free Of Potential Hazards? (International Journal Of Environmental Research & Public Health – 04/20/21)

“The aim was to find, test, evaluate and compile scientifically proven related side effects of wearing masks. For a quantitative evaluation, 44 mostly experimental studies were referenced, and for a substantive evaluation, 65 publications were found. The literature revealed relevant adverse effects of masks in numerous disciplines. In this paper, we refer to the psychological and physical deterioration as well as multiple symptoms described because of their consistent, recurrent and uniform presentation from different disciplines as a Mask-Induced Exhaustion Syndrome (MIES)…”

“According to the literature found, there are clear, scientifically recorded adverse effects for the mask wearer, both on a psychological and on a social and physical level. Neither higher level institutions such as the WHO or the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) nor national ones, such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, GA, USA (CDC) or the German RKI, substantiate with sound scientific data a positive effect of masks in the public (in terms of a reduced rate of spread of COVID-19 in the population). Contrary to the scientifically established standard of evidence-based medicine, national and international health authorities have issued their theoretical assessments on the masks in public places, even though the compulsory wearing of masks gives a deceptive feeling of safety.”

“We found a clustered and common occurrence of the different adverse effects within the respective studies with significantly measured effects. We were able to demonstrate a statistically significant correlation of the observed adverse effect of hypoxia and the symptom of fatigue with p < 0.05 in the quantitative evaluation of the primary studies. Our review of the literature shows that both healthy and sick people can experience Mask-Induced Exhaustion Syndrome (MIES), with typical changes and symptoms that are often observed in combination, such as an increase in breathing dead space volume, increase in blood carbon dioxide, decrease in blood oxygen saturation, increase in heart rate, increase in blood pressure, decrease in cardiopulmonary capacity, increase in respiratory rate, shortness of breath and difficulty breathing, headache, dizziness, feeling hot and clammy, decreased ability to concentrate, decreased ability to think, drowsiness, decrease in empathy perception, impaired skin barrier function with itching, acne, skin lesions and irritation, overall perceived fatigue and exhaustion.”

Chronic low-grade hypoxemia and hypercapnia as result of using face mask can cause exacerbation of existing cardiopulmonary, metabolic, vascular and neurological conditions.”

In addition, wearing a face mask could lead to the following physiological effects:

• Hypoxemia
• Hypercapnia
• Shortness of breath
• Increase lactate concentration
• Decline in pH levels
• Acidosis
• Toxicity
• Inflammation
• Self-contamination
• Increase in stress hormones level (adrenaline, noradrenaline and cortisol)
• Increased muscle tension
• Immunosuppression

Psychological effects were also noted, which include:

• Activation of “fight or flight” stress response
• Chronic stress condition
• Fear
• Mood disturbances
• Insomnia https://cumbrestoltec.com/meds/generic-zolpidem/
• Fatigue
• Compromised cognitive performance

Long-term health consequences are also likely, including:

• Increased predisposition for viral and infection illnesses
• Headaches
• Anxiety
• Depression
• High blood pressure
• Cardiovascular disease
• Cancer
• Diabetes
• Alzheimer’s disease
• Exacerbation of existing conditions and diseases
• Accelerated aging process
• Health deterioration
• Premature mortality

We have identified over 35 placebo-controlled, peer-reviewed studies to date. We have not been able to find any peer-reviewed, placebo-controlled study that supports the efficacy of masks against viral or bacteriological transmission — even in hospital settings. Meanwhile, dozens of studies suggest negative efficacy and several link masks to a grim inventory of respiratory, pulmonary, dental, gastrointestinal and dermatological injuries.

Effectiveness Of Adding A Mask Recommendation To Other Public Health Measures To Prevent SARS-CoV-2 Infection In Danish Mask Wearers (Annals Of Internal Medicine – March 2021)

The recommendation to wear surgical masks to supplement other public health measures did not reduce the SARS-CoV-2 infection rate among wearers by more than 50% in a community with modest infection rates, some degree of social distancing, and uncommon general mask use. The data were compatible with lesser degrees of self-protection.

We Are Unaware Of Any Studies Using Sound Methodology That Show A Benefit For Masks In The General Population (PANDA)

We are unaware of any studies using sound methodology that show a benefit for masks in the general population. The only COVID-19-specific mask study using sound methodology found no significant impact of mask wearing on the spread of the disease. This is consistent with such studies for other respiratory viruses. Mask wearing is a personal choice and should never be mandated.

The publication and [CDC’s] endorsement of the Arizona study is especially demoralizing. How did research with so many obvious flaws make its way through all the layers of internal technical review? And why was it promoted so aggressively by the agency’s director? I reached out to Walensky’s office to ask about the study, noting its evident limitations and outlier result. How, if at all, does this research figure into the agency’s continuing guidance for schools around the country? The CDC did not respond to my inquiries.

With Biden in the White House, the CDC has promised to “follow the science” in its COVID policies. Yet the circumstances around the Arizona study seem to show the opposite. Dubious research has been cited after the fact, without transparency, in support of existing agency guidance. “Research requires trust and the ability to verify work,” Ketcham, the ASU public-health economist, told me. “That’s the heart of science. The saddest part of this is the erosion of trust.”

Scientists Find Evidence Of Toxic Chemicals In Some Face Masks (Daily Mail – 04/02/21)

Scientists have found evidence that some face masks that are on sale and being used by members of the general public are laced with toxic chemicals. Preliminary tests have revealed traces of a variety of compounds which are heavily restricted for both health and environmental reasons. This includes formaldehyde, a chemical known to cause watery eyes; a burning sensations in the eyes, nose, and throat; coughing; wheezing; and nausea. Experts are concerned that the presence of these chemicals in masks which are being worn for prolonged periods of time could cause unintended health issues…

Liz Cole, co-founder of the Us For Them organisation that advocates for children’s rights, says the findings are particularly concerning for youngsters. The recent reopening of schools in the UK was dependent on children wearing face coverings for long periods of time, including when walking around the premises and in communal areas. ‘UsforThem are concerned that the recommendations for children to wear face coverings in classrooms seems to be informed by no new scientific evidence nor does any harm assessment appear to have been conducted,’ she said. ‘Given the potential issues of child health and welfare at stake it is imperative that potential harms of face coverings in classrooms be considered and weighed against benefits’.

Quebec Teachers And Parents Respond After Potentially Toxic Masks Pulled (CTV News – 03/26/21)

It considers the risk the masks pose to be “unacceptable.” “In addition to ceasing distribution, networks have also been asked to immediately store the boxes of masks in a secure and isolated location,” the province wrote.

Safety Concerns Raised Over Nanotechnology Derived Graphene Used In Facemasks (greatgameindia – 04/29/21)

Experts have raised concerns over and warned of probable ‘early pulmonary toxicity’ related to Nanotechnology derived Graphene used in the manufacturing of facemasks which makes safety checks and balances seriously questionable.

What Are Surgical Masks Made Of?

The material most commonly used to make surgical face masks is polypropylene, either 20 or 25 grams per square meter (gsm) in density. Masks can also be made of polystyrene, polycarbonate, polyethylene, or polyester.

CDC: Ethylene Oxide May Have More Health Effects Than Cancer

The CDC’s systematic review of non-cancer hazards includes presumed respiratory, neurotoxicity, genotoxicity, reproductive toxicity and developmental toxicity and suspected hematological and endocrine health effects. The agency relied on numerous animal and human studies of inhalation and oral consumption of EtO to reach its conclusions. It also detailed the results of several studies linking EtO to cancer in humans, including breast cancer, leukemia, multiple myeloma, non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and lymphohematopoietic cancers. And it delved into the effects of the gas on children and other vulnerable populations, including those at risk of potentially high exposures to the gas.

What Is Ethylene Oxide? (OSHA Fact Sheet – PDF)

Ethylene oxide (EtO) is a flammable, colorless gas at temperatures above 51.3 ºF (10.7 ºC) that smells like ether at toxic levels. EtO is found in the production of solvents, antifreeze, textiles, detergents, adhesives, polyurethane foam, and pharmaceuticals. Smaller amounts are present in fumigants, sterilants for spices and cosmetics, as well as during hospital sterilization of surgical equipment. In addition to eye pain and sore throat, exposure to EtO can cause difficult breathing and blurred vision. Exposure can also cause dizziness, nausea, headache, convulsions, blisters and can result in vomiting and coughing. Both human and animal studies show that EtO is a carcinogen that may cause leukemia and other cancers. EtO is also linked to spontaneous abortion, genetic damage, nerve damage, peripheral paralysis, muscle weakness, as well as impaired thinking and memory. In liquid form, EtO can cause severe skin irritation upon prolonged or confined contact.

Study: Long Term Mask Use Breeds Microbes That Infiltrate The Lungs And Contribute To Advanced Stage Lung Cancer (Science News – 01/15/21)

A new study finds that cultivation and enrichment of microbes on the face can infiltrate the lungs through unconscious aspirations and cause inflammatory responses and advanced stage lung cancer. The nose and the mouth were designed to take in oxygen without strain, uninhibited. The oxygen travels down the trachea and splits off into two tubes called the bronchi. From there, the oxygen travels down a series of bronchioles until it reaches the alveoli, which are tiny air sacs covered with blood vessels. These air sacs take the oxygen directly to the heart, where it is dispersed throughout the body. When a person exhales, the process is put in reverse and the lungs exhale carbon dioxide. This carbon dioxide gas is the vehicle that allows the organ systems to rid the body of wastes. When this process is obstructed or restrained for prolonged periods of time, the lungs and the heart struggle to nourish the rest of the body. Long term mask wearing also hinders the body’s natural ability to detoxify wastes, creates an acidic environment, and slowly strains the organ systems throughout the body.

The judge summarized his decision as follows: “The compulsion imposed on school children to wear masks and to keep their distance from each other and from third persons harms the children physically, psychologically, educationally, and in their psychosocial development, without being counterbalanced by more than at best marginal benefit to the children themselves or to third persons. Schools do not play a significant role in the pandemic event.”

New Study Finds Masks Hurt Schoolchildren Physically, Psychologically, and Behaviorally (Montana Daily Gazette – 01/25/21

A new study, involving over 25,000 school-aged children, shows that masks are harming schoolchildren physically, psychologically, and behaviorally, revealing 24 distinct health issues associated with wearing masks. The health issues and impairments observed in this study were found to affect 68% of masked children who are forced to wear a face covering for an average of 4.5 hours per day. The study also includes 17,854 health complaints submitted by parents. Some of the health issues found in the study include: increased headaches (53%), difficulty concentrating (50%), drowsiness or fatigue (37%), malaise (42%), and nearly a third of children experience more sleep issues than they had previously and a quarter of children developed new fears. Though these results are concerning, the study also found that 29.7% of children experienced shortness of breath, 26.4% experienced dizziness, and hundreds of the participants experiencing accelerated respiration, tightness in chest, weakness, and short-term impairment of consciousness.
