Carbon nanotubes are Graphene Oxide Hydrogels. nanotubes are also called nanowires and nanoworms. They have many names. Anyway, they are used for the ballistic delivery of drugs, chemicals and mRNA. An entire weapons system can be attached to the nanotubes. These nanotubes have been found in face masks, PCR swabs and covid vials. Nanotubes were first developed in 2017 by the University of Kiel. This is the same university that genetically modifies transgenic hydras as mRNA vectors for vaccine delivery. This university should be investigated!
Research team develops new composite material made of carbon nanotubes
"Carbon nanotubes are great for making stretchy super materials or detecting potentially harmful chemicals . But past studies have shown that they’re probably not so good to have in your lungs—over time, they could cause the lungs to break down, with effects similar to asbestos. For the first time, researchers have found them in humans—specifically, in the lungs of 64 children with asthma, according to a study published this month in EBioMedicine and reported by The New Scientist ." - (2019) https://neurodope.com/you-probably-have-carbon-nanotubes-in-your-lungs/
An article on this topic containing several videos collected from the Internet ( American, Romanain, German, other European people discovered them independently in various medical masks)
Breathable micro and nano-fibers in face masks have been acknowledged in a scientific (pro-masks) study which warns that effect on the human respiratory tract may be damaging and assesments need to be done... Btw, if owning a microscope, one may indeed discover some weird fibers of various colours that are very distinct of the texture of the mask (I've done it and discovered them in several medical masks)
- Need for assessing the inhalation of micro(nano)plastic debris shed from masks, respirators, and home-made face coverings during the COVID-19 pandemic☆-https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC7537728/...
"By putting several top-selling medical face masks and N95 respirators under microscopes, however, we saw abundant loosely attached debris on their inner facings, some showing the morphology of fibers and others as particles, in the micron and sub-micron ranges (Fig. 1 ). These could be either self-carried, or
contaminants during their manufacturing process, or even from their plastic packaging – most of the products were packed in plastic bags to maintain sterility. While more rigorous studies are undoubtedly needed, these images offer a glimpse of the issue. With an ongoing shortage from the major suppliers and a myriad of products with countless brands currently offered in the market, it seems inevitable that some products would present similarly, if not more, abundant respirable debris, given that there is no such regulation in place. Whether these plastic debris could cause stress and inflammation in the human respiratory tract and exacerbate vulnerability to viral infection is a further question that warrants investigation"

Also consider the dangers of graphene masks, which are now forbidden in Canada, while promoted by the BBC here
- Potentially toxic masks distributed in schools and daycares in Quebec https://www.cbc.ca/.../masks-early-pulmonary-toxicity...
"Radio-Canada has obtained documents showing Health Canada warned of the potential for "early pulmonary toxicity" from the SNN200642 masks which are made in China and sold and distributed by Métallifer, a Quebec-based manufacturer.
[...] Health Canada conducted a preliminary risk assessment which revealed a potential for early lung damage associated with inhalation of microscopic graphene particles. Graphene is a strong, very thin material that is used in fabrication, but it can be harmful to lungs when inhaled and can cause long-term health problems."
Charged with electrons, they move when reacting to moisture, wind and other electrons nearby. Seems they are alive when they are not. Placed there by mask manufacturers, they will supposedly kill viruses as they pass by. Jury is out on how safe they are in masks which explains why a Canadian government banned masks with this technology from their schools.

Advice on the Use of Masks in the Context of COVID-19 – Guidance, World Health Organization (April 6, 2020)
Even at the end of March 2020, during the peak of the epidemic in Europe… WHO stands by recommendation to not wear masks if you are not sick or not caring for someone who is sick: https://edition.cnn.com/2020/03/30/world/coronavirus-who-masks-recommendation-trnd/index.html?fbclid=IwAR0LHhez6ASIv6BsS9ZbJwRS3z0tuyd_BAeDdP6qDH0HZCB8LKJ4fmI31Mo
WHO emergencies chief Dr. Michael Ryan said “… there is no specific evidence to suggest that the wearing of masks by the mass population has any particular benefit – in fact, there’s some evidence to suggest the opposite,”
WHO says there is no need for healthy people to wear face masks, days after the CDC told all Americans to cover their faces (Apr 7, 2020): https://www.businessinsider.com/who-no-need-for-healthy-people-to-wear-face-masks-2020-4?fbclid=IwAR2H8MleINAK9t-BoKqbXAe5_1x7xSHvhBkSca7O_56F5ExANQQfzwPFby4&r=US&IR=T
New England Journal of Medicine,written my several doctors and public health officials with the title, Universal Masking in Hospitals in the Covid-19 Era
"We know that wearing a mask outside health care facilities offers little, if any, protection from infection. Public health authorities define a significant exposure to Covid-19 as face-to-face contact within 6 feet with a patient with symptomatic Covid-19 that is sustained for at least a few minutes (and some say more than 10 minutes or even 30 minutes). The chance of catching Covid-19 from a passing interaction in a public space is therefore minimal. In many cases, the desire for widespread masking is a reflexive reaction to anxiety over the pandemic. "
Public Health Canada: Masks worn by ill individuals may protect uninfected individuals from virus transmission, but little evidence exists that mask use by well individuals avoids infection.

Unmasking the surgeons: the evidence base behind the use of facemasks in surgery: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4480558/?fbclid=IwAR0Jonaftzo_vuykmb5_3L-RWfBwC5OLROj_ylcF7Zx4qiQeTD3humkR9z4
An increasingly prevalent belief, in favour of mask usage, is the idea that they also confer some degree of protection to the operating staff from patient-derived infectious material.18 Most obviously, they can act as a physical barrier against blood and bodily fluid splashes during surgery. […]Despite clear evidence that facemasks act to protect the theatre staff from macroscopic facial contamination, there are studies to suggest that they fail to protect surgeons from potentially hazardous sub-micrometre contaminants.21 This corresponds roughly to the size range of infectious bacteria while viruses are even smaller.
Masks Are Neither Effective Nor Safe: A Summary Of The Science
Several meta analyses and studies (4 of them from 2020) concerning mask wearing against flu like diseases, particularly Covid -19, show no discernable benefit for the users....
" The use of face masks, whether cloth, surgical or N95, creates a poor obstacle to aerosolized pathogens as we can see from the meta-analyses and other studies in this paper, allowing both transmission of aerosolized pathogens to others in various directions, as well as self-contamination.
It must also be considered that masks impede the necessary volume of air intake required for adequate oxygen exchange, which results in observed physiological effects that may be undesirable. Even 6- minute walks, let alone more strenuous activity, resulted in dyspnea. The volume of unobstructed oxygen in a typical breath is about 100 ml, used for normal physiological processes. 100 ml O2 greatly exceeds the volume of a pathogen required for transmission.
The foregoing data show that masks serve more as instruments of obstruction of normal breathing, rather than as effective barriers to pathogens. Therefore, masks should not be used by the general public, either by adults or children, and their limitations as prophylaxis against pathogens should also be considered in medical settings."

Wearing respirators come[s] with a host of physiological and psychological burdens. These can interfere with task performances and reduce work efficiency. These burdens can even be severe enough to cause life-threatening conditions if not ameliorated. Arthur Johnson, Journal of Biological Engineering (2016).
When the N95 respirator was tested in use in 2010, the “dead-space oxygen and carbon dioxide levels did not meet the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s ambient workplace standards.”
In a study conducted by the National Taiwan University Hospital fifteen years ago, it was found that the use of N-95 masks in healthcare workers caused them to experience hypoxemia, a low level of oxygen in the blood, and hypercapnia, an elevation in the blood’s carbon dioxide levels. Not only did the mask create dangerously low levels of oxygen and an equally dangerous spike in carbon dioxide in the human body, the study found that “medical staff are at increased risk of getting ‘Severe acute respiratory syndrome’ (SARS) [from] wearing N95 masks….” Lastly, the study’s authors further found that “dizziness, headache, and short[ness] of breath are commonly experienced by the medical staff wearing N95 masks” and that the “ability to make correct decisions” was also likely impaired. The Physiological Impact of N95 Masks on Medical Staff, National Taiwan University Hospital (June 2005).
Pregnant women wearing N-95 masks were found to have breathing difficulties associated with the use of the mask. Are Face Masks Effective Against Covid-19? The Science Times (May 25, 2020). “It is known that the N95 mask, if worn for hours, can reduce blood oxygenation as much as 20%” which in turn “can lead to a loss of consciousness, as happened to the hapless fellow driving around alone in his car wearing an N95 mask, causing him to pass out, and to crash his car and sustain injuries. I am sure that we have several cases of elderly individuals or any person with poor lung function passing out, hitting their head. This, of course, can lead to death.” Are Face Masks Effective Against Covid-19? The Science Times (May 25, 2020).
Studies show that headaches in medical professionals are commonly found as a result of mask-wearing, which is a sign of hypoxia: Just under 10% of the healthcare workers in one study experienced such severe symptoms that they were forced to take, on average, two full days of sick leave from their healthcare jobs, while 60% of these healthcare professionals “required use of abortive analgesics because of headache.” Headaches and the N95 Face-Mask Amongst Healthcare Providers. Lim EC1, Seet RC, Lee KH, Wilder-Smith EP, Chuah BY, Ong BK, Acta Neurologica Scandinavica, 28 Feb 2006, 113(3):199-202.
A more recent study involving 159 healthcare workers aged 21 to 35 years of age found that 81% developed headaches from wearing a face mask – which is a sign of dangerously low levels of oxygenation – and ALL healthcare workers felt like the headaches affected their work performance. Ong JJY et al. Headaches associated with personal protective equipment- A cross-sectional study among frontline healthcare workers during COVID-19. Headache 2020;60(5):864-877.
In this study, researchers examined the blood oxygen levels in 53 surgeons. They measured blood oxygenation before surgery as well as at the end of surgeries. The researchers found that the mask reduced the blood oxygen levels significantly. The longer the duration of wearing the mask, the greater the fall in blood oxygen levels. Bader A et al. Preliminary report on surgical mask induced deoxygenation during major surgery. Neurocirugia 2008;19:12-126.
In a study of dentists and dental assistants who adopted new protocols since COVID, headaches jumped from 16% pre-COVID to 65%, with half of respondents (49%) noting it was hard to breathe “all the time” and 40% noting it was hard to breathe some of the time. https://www.dentistryiq.com/covid-19/article/14177630/headaches-exhaustion-anxiety-the-physical-and-emotional-challenges-of-returning-to-work-during-the-pandemic?utm_source=RDH%20eVillage%20%26%20Product&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=CPS200611069&o_eid=3982E9300967G0X&rdx.ident[pull]=omeda%7C3982E9300967G0X&oly_enc_id=3982E9300967G0X&fbclid=IwAR1Dr974eARlmMqMikUxsl8XBZjvzOznYcgEFxJLWUoR-n1zjxfUxih_QKY#cid-14177681

On June 9, 2020, CA residents measured their oxygen rate with masks on. The results were nothing short of horrifying. Two of the residents dropped into the 70% oxygenation range within a few minutes of donning the mask – which is the severely hypoxic zone where cardiac arrest, systemic organ failure and death can occur. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1YBu-T0P10mYZLR759ljHAWfl3Ds8QVGk/view?fbclid=IwAR3KTMqTMdGb5E7YPBlRdIRy0gMYGq7-KPHSN1ET2SFWzKk8ghMizCpV96Y
Multiple people have now begun to report their own episodes of passing out, convulsions, and worse. Recently, two boys in China died while mask-wearing. You can learn more about the risks by going to the OSHA website – and you can report workplace oxygen deprivation violations to OSHA by calling (800) 321-6742. In the meantime, here’s a quick excerpt from the Feds about necessary oxygen levels at work:
OSHA discussed extensively its rationale for requiring that employees breathe air” with a certain level of oxygen in it: “Human beings must breathe oxygen . . . to survive, and begin to suffer adverse health effects when the oxygen level … drops below [certain thresholds]. Workers engaged in any form of exertion can rapidly become symptomatic as their tissues fail to obtain the oxygen necessary to function properly." Increased "breathing rates" and heartbeat, "impaired thinking and coordination... nausea, vomiting, lethargic movements, and ... unconsciousness" can occur.
In severe oxygen deprivation cases, "convulsions, then apnea (cessation of breathing), followed by CARDIAC STANDSTILL... occur immediately.”
"Even if a worker survives the hypoxic insult, ORGANS MAY SHOW EVIDENCE OF HYPOXIC DAMAGE, WHICH MAY BE IRREVERSIBLE.”

Blaylock: Face Masks Pose Serious Risks To The Healthy https://www.citizensforfreespeech.org/blaylock_face_masks_pose_serious_risks_to_the_healthy
“The immunity of the mask wearer – and his or her subsequent ability to fight off COVID-19 or any other harmful infection – is actually harmed by wearing a mask. The drop in oxygen levels (hypoxia) noted in many studies is directly associated with an impairment in immunity. In terms of the biological effects, what the studies have shown is that the lowered rate of oxygen (hypoxia) in turn inhibits the production of the type of primary immune cells that our bodies use to fight viral infections (known as the CD4+ T-lymphocyte). Functionally speaking, what happens inside our bodies is that the decrease in oxygen causes a spike in the level of a compound called hypoxia-inducible-factor-1 (HIF-1). Once that compound spikes, it in turn inhibits the production of T-lymphocytes we need for our bodies to fight off invaders and infections. Yet worse, the lack of oxygen stimulates a powerful inhibitor of the immune system (a cell called the Tregs), which in turn makes one’s body ripe for contracting a COVID-19 infection and experiencing said illness more severely: “This sets the stage for contracting any infection, including COVID-19, and making the consequences of that infection much graver. In essence, your mask may very well put you at an increased risk of infections and if so, having a much worse outcome.” Russell Blaylock, Id. (quoting Shehade H et al. Cutting edge: Hypoxia-Inducible Factor-1 negatively regulates Th1 function. J Immunol 2015;195:1372-1376. See also: Westendorf AM et al. Hypoxia enhances immunosuppression by inhibiting CD4+ effector T cell function and promoting Treg activity. Cell Physiol Biochem 2017;41:1271-84. See further: Sceneay J et al. Hypoxia-driven immunosuppression contributes to the pre-metastatic niche. Oncoimmunology 2013;2:1 e22355.
People with cancer may be at a further risk from hypoxia – as cancer cells grow best in a bodily environment that is low in oxygen. Low oxygen also promotes systemic inflammation which, in turn, promotes “the growth, invasion and spread of cancers.” Aggarwal BB. Nucler factor-kappaB: The enemy within. Cancer Cell 2004;6:203-208, and Blaylock RL. Immunoexcitatory mechanisms in glioma proliferation, invasion and occasional metastasis. Surg Neurol Inter 2013;4:15.
Repeated episodes of low oxygen – known as intermittent hypoxia – also “causes atherosclerosis” and hence increases “all cardiovascular events” such as heart attacks – as well as adverse cerebral events like stroke. Blaylock, quoting Savransky V et al. Chronic intermittent hypoxia induces atherosclerosis. Am J Resp Crit Care Med 2007;175:1290-1297.
It appears the virus may be able to enter the brain. According to those who practice neurosurgery, in most instances where the virus enters the brain, it does so by way of the olfactory nerves (smell nerves) – and accordingly – by wearing a mask “the exhaled viruses will not be able to escape, and will concentrate in the nasal passages, enter the olfactory nerves and travel into the brain.’’ Blaylock, reviewing Baig AM et al. Evidence of the COVID-19 virus targeting the CNS: Tissue distribution, host-virus interaction, and proposed neurotropic mechanisms. ACS Chem Neurosci 2020;11:7:995-998. Wu Y et al. Nervous system involvement after infection with COVID-19 and other coronaviruses. Brain Behavior, and Immunity. Perlman S et al. Spread of a neurotropic murine coronavirus into the CNS via the trigeminal and olfactory nerves. Virology 1989;170:556-560.
“The reinhalation of our exhaled air will without a doubt create oxygen deficiency and a flooding of carbon dioxide. We know that the human brain is very sensitive to oxygen deprivation. There are nerve cells for example in the hippocampus that can’t be longer than 3 minutes without oxygen – they cannot survive.
The acute warning symptoms are headaches, drowsiness, dizziness, issues in concentration, slowing down of reaction time – reactions of the cognitive system.
However, when you have chronic oxygen deprivation, all of those symptoms disappear, because you get used to it. But your efficiency will remain impaired and the under-supply of oxygen in your brain continues to progress.
We know that neurodegenerative diseases take years to decades to develop. If today you forget your phone number, the breakdown in your brain would have already started 20 or 30 years ago.
While you’re thinking that you have gotten used to wearing your mask and rebreathing your own exhaled air, the degenerative processes in your brain are getting amplified as your oxygen deprivation continues.
The second problem is that the nerve cells in your brain are unable to divide themselves normally. So in case our governments will generously allow as to get rid of the masks and go back to breathing oxygen freely again in a few months, the lost nerve cells will no longer be regenerated. What is gone is gone.
I do not wear a mask, I need my brain to think. I want to have a clear head when I deal with my patients, and not be in a carbon dioxide-induced anaesthesia.
There is no unfounded medical exemption from face masks because oxygen deprivation is dangerous for every single brain. It must be the free decision of every human being whether they want to wear a mask that is absolutely ineffective to protect themselves from a virus.
For children and adolescents, masks are an absolute no-no. Children and adolescents have an extremely active and adaptive immune system and they need a constant interaction with the microbiome of the Earth. Their brain is also incredibly active, as it is has so much to learn. The child’s brain, or the youth’s brain, is thirsting for oxygen. The more metabolically active the organ is, the more oxygen it requires. In children and adolescents every organ is metabolically active.
To deprive a child’s or an adolescent’s brain from oxygen, or to restrict it in any way, is not only dangerous to their health, it is absolutely criminal. Oxygen deficiency inhibits the development of the brain, and the damage that has taken place as a result CANNOT be reversed.
The child needs the brain to learn, and the brain needs oxygen to function. We don’t need a clinical study for that. This is simple, indisputable physiology. Consciously and purposely induced oxygen deficiency is an absolutely deliberate health hazard, and an absolute medical contraindication.
An absolute medical contraindication in medicine means that this drug, this therapy, this method or measure should not be used, and is not allowed to be used. To coerce an entire population to use an absolute medical contraindication by force, there must be definite and serious reasons for this, and the reasons must be presented to competent interdisciplinary and independent bodies to be verified and authorised.
When, in ten years, dementia is going to increase exponentially, and the younger generations couldn’t reach their god-given potential, it won’t help to say “we didn’t need the masks”.
How can a veterinarian, a software distributor, a businessman, an electrical car manufacturer and a physicist decide on matters regarding the health of the entire population? Please, dear colleagues, we all have to wake up.

Dr. Jenny Harries, England’s deputy chief medical officer, has warned that it was not a good idea for the public to wear facemasks as the virus can get trapped in the material and causes infection when the wearer breathes in. “For the average member of the public walking down a street, it is not a good idea,” Dr. Harries said. https://www.news-medical.net/news/20200315/Wearing-masks-may-increase-your-risk-of-coronavirus-infection-expert-says.aspx

“There’s no evidence that wearing masks on healthy people will protect them,” Perencevich said, the publication reported. “They wear them incorrectly, and they can increase the risk of infection because they’re touching their face more often,” says Dr. Eli Perencevich, a professor of medicine and epidemiology at the University of Iowa’s College of Medicine, according to Forbes. https://www.sacbee.com/news/nation-world/national/article240780786.html.

What the World Health Organization and the CDC have reaffirmed in the last few days is that they do not recommend the general public wear masks," Adams told Fox News' "Fox and Friends." "There was a study in 2015 looking at medical students. And medical students wearing surgical masks touch their faces on average 23 times. We know a major way that you can get respiratory diseases like coronavirus is by touching a surface and then touching your face.""

There is another danger to wearing these masks on a daily basis, especially if worn for several hours. When a person is infected with a respiratory virus, they will expel some of the virus with each breath. If they are wearing a mask, especially an N95 mask or other tightly fitting mask, they will be constantly rebreathing the viruses, raising the concentration of the virus in the lungs and the nasal passages. We know that people who have the worst reactions to the coronavirus have the highest concentrations of the virus early on. And this leads to the deadly cytokine storm in a selected number.
It gets even more frightening. Newer evidence suggests that in some cases the virus can enter the brain.11,12 In most instances it enters the brain by way of the olfactory nerves (smell nerves), which connect directly with the area of the brain dealing with recent memory and memory consolidation. By wearing a mask, the exhaled viruses will not be able to escape and will concentrate in the nasal passages, enter the olfactory nerves and travel into the brain(Russell Blaylock, MD) Blaylock, reviewing Baig AM et al.

Masks, false safety and real dangers, Part 1: Friable mask particulate and lung vulnerability (September 2020)
There is no biological history of mass masking until the current era. It is important to consider possible outcomes of this society-wide experiment. The consequences to the health of individuals is as yet unknown. Masked individuals have measurably higher inspiratory flow than non-masked individuals. This study is of new masks removed from manufacturer packaging, as well as a laundered cloth mask, examined microscopically. Loose particulate was seen on each type of mask. Also, tight and loose fibers were seen on each type of mask. If every foreign particle and every fiber in every facemask is always secure and not detachable by airflow, then there should be no risk of inhalation of such particles and fibers. However, if even a small portion of mask fibers is detachable by inspiratory airflow, or if there is debris in mask manufacture or packaging or handling, then there is the possibility of not only entry of foreign material to the airways, but also entry to deep lung tissue, and potential pathological consequences of foreign bodies in the lungs.

There is no study pointing to the safety of breathing through materials that contain tiny nanoparticles which could eventually get into the body by breathing them in. However a couple of references make very clear about the real risks involved if such thing would happen:
- Nanoparticles – known and unknown health risks: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC544578/
"Particles in the nano-size range can certainly enter the human body via the lungs and the intestines; penetration via the skin is less evident. […]
The increased risk of cardiopulmonary diseases requires specific measures to be taken for every newly produced nanoparticle. There is no universal "nanoparticle" to fit all the cases, each nanomaterial should be treated individually when health risks are expected. The tests currently used to test the safety of materials should be applicable to identify hazardous nanoparticles. Proven otherwise, it would be a challenge for industry, legislators and risk assessors to construct a set of high throughput and low cost tests for nanoparticles without reducing the efficiency and reliability of the risk assessment. Nanoparticles designed for drug delivery or as food components need special attention.

Fact check: Wearing a face mask will not cause hypoxia, hypoxemia or hypercapnia (USA TODAY) https://eu.usatoday.com/story/news/factcheck/2020/05/30/fFACE MASKSact-check-wearing-face-mask-not-cause-hypoxia-hypercapnia/5260106002/
Will a mask give the wearer hypoxia? Simply, no.
"This misinformation may arise from the feeling of lack of air due to mechanical obstruction depending on the type of mouthpiece we are using. But the feeling of obstruction is because we are not used to using the mouth mask. But as such it will not cause us any kind of hypoxia," Dr. Daniel Pahua Díaz, an academic from the Department of Public Health at the National Autonomous University of Mexico medical school, told Animal Político earlier in May.
Additionally, the CDC told Reuters, "The CO2 will slowly build up in the mask over time. However, the level of CO2 likely to build up in the mask is mostly tolerable to people exposed to it ... It is unlikely that wearing a mask will cause hypercapnia."

“Take surgeons, for example—during long procedures, they wear surgical masks for hours with no ill-effects on their carbon dioxide levels. Having a surgeon with an altered mental state would not be in the best interests of either the patient or the surgeon and thankfully, this simply does not happen.”
It is unfortunate that these posts are not supported by rigorous scientific evidence. Indeed, wearing a surgical mask for short periods of time does not impact significantly physiological respiratory variables and thus, whenever a rise in CO2 occurs in the “dead space” of the mask, it is unlikely that the magnitude of this increase would be sufficient to impair immune, neurological, or cardiovascular homeostasis. Further large-scale studies are required to verify the effect of wearing a mask for a longer period: indeed, while one possible outcome of wearing face masks is the retention of carbon dioxide, another possible outcome could be excessive ventilation leading to hypocapnia, that is, a state of reduced carbon dioxide in the blood.
Until these studies are available, making such claims without supporting scientific evidence is hazardous and dangerous, especially in this very historical moment. (Sofia Morra, Cardiologist, Erasme University Hospital, Université Libre de Bruxelles:)

Masks are not mandatory everywhere, not even among the industrialized countries...
A recent CDC study finds among other that in two groups of symptomatic adults that received positive versus negative Covid-test results (the ones with negative results being called the 'controlled group") the wearing of masks didn't make much different... In fact, 89% of those who tested negative wore the mask often or always, while 85% of those diagnosed positive did the same...
This of course, giving credibility to their own famous diagnostic tool, the PCR test.
Here is the study: Community and Close Contact Exposures Associated with COVID-19 Among Symptomatic Adults ≥18 Years in 11 Outpatient Health Care Facilities — United States, July 2020:
"a randomised study published by scientists at Copenhagen University, thought to be the best of its kind so far, found no statistical evidence that they offer any protection whatsoever.
Reacting to the finding in a column in The Spectator today, Oxford University's Professor Carl Heneghan and Dr Tom Jefferson said there had been 'a troubling lack of robust evidence on face masks and Covid-19'.
There have only been three 'real life' studies comparing mask-wearers to non-mask-wearers — one in Guinea-Bissau, one in India and the new Denmark study. All have shown masks to have no benefit in preventing the disease.
But the experts added: 'Now we have properly rigorous scientific research we can rely on, the evidence shows wearing masks in the community does not significantly reduce the rates of infection.' "

In June 2020, Schaefer wrote an open letter9 addressed to the chief medical officer in Alberta, Canada, Dr. Deena Hinshaw, pointing out the errors of recommending universal wearing of N95 masks, surgical masks or nonmedical masks as protection against SARS-CoV-2. In it, he writes:10
“I have been teaching and conducting respirator fit testing for over 20 years and now currently for my company SafeCom Training Services Inc. My clients include many government departments, our military, healthcare providers with Alberta Health Services, educational institutions and private industry. I am a published author and a recognized authority on this subject.
Filter respirator masks, especially N95, surgical and non-medical masks, provide negligible COVID-19 protection for the following reasons:
1.Viruses in the fluid envelopes that surround them can be very small, so small in fact that you would need an electron microscope to see them. N95 masks filter 95% of particles with a diameter of 0.3 microns or larger. COVID-19 particles are .08 – .12 microns.
2.Viruses don’t just enter us through our mouth and nose, but can also enter through our eyes and even the pores of our skin. The only effective barrier one can wear to protect against virus exposure would be a fully encapsulated hazmat suit with cuffs by ankles taped to boots and cuffs by wrists taped to gloves, while receiving breathing air from a self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA).
This barrier is standard gear to protect against a biohazard (viruses) and would have to be worn in a possible virus hazard environment 24/7 and you wouldn’t be able to remove any part of it even to have a sip of water, eat or use the washroom while in the virus environment. If you did, you would become exposed and would negate all the prior precautions you had taken.” (from dr. Mercola's article Officials Reach New Low, Say Moist Masks Are Good for You)
In his letter, and in the video above, Schaefer also stresses that these kinds of face masks pose “very real risks and possible serious threats to a wearer’s health” for a number of reasons, including the following:
1.Wearing a face mask increases breathing resistance, and since it makes both inhaling and exhaling more difficult, individuals with pre-existing medical conditions need to be screened by a medical professional to make sure they won’t be at risk of a medical emergency if wearing a face mask.
This includes those with shortness of breath, lung disease, panic attacks, breathing difficulties, chest pain on exertion, cardiovascular disease, fainting spells, claustrophobia, chronic bronchitis, heart problems, asthma, allergies, diabetes, seizures, high blood pressure and those with pacemakers. The impact of wearing a face mask during pregnancy is also wholly unknown.
2.Face masks can reduce oxygen intake, leading to potentially hazardous oxygen deficiency (hypoxia).
3.They also cause rapid accumulation of harmful carbon dioxide, which can have significant cognitive and physical impacts. That said, there is some evidence to support that this may be one of the few benefits of mask wearing, as slightly elevated CO2 levels can also contribute to health benefits as per my interview with Patrick McKeown. (We’re not talking about dangerously high levels, however.)
4.Wearing a face mask increases your body temperature and physical stress, which could result in an elevated temperature reading that is not related to infection.
5.All face masks can cause bacterial and fungal infections in the user as warm, moist air accumulates inside the mask. This is the perfect breeding ground for pathogens. “That is why N95 and other disposable masks were only designed to be short duration, specific task use and then immediately discarded,” Schaefer notes.
Medical doctors have warned that bacterial pneumonia, facial rashes, fungal infections on the face,11 “mask mouth” (symptoms of which include bad breath, tooth decay and gum inflammation) and candida mouth infections12 are all on the rise.
What’s worse, a study13,14 published in the February 2021 issue of the journal Cancer Discovery found that the presence of microbes in your lungs can worsen lung cancer pathogenesis and can contribute to advanced stage lung cancer. As reported by Global Research:15
“While analyzing lung microbes of 83 untreated adults with lung cancer, the research team discovered that colonies of Veillonella, Prevotella, and Streptococcus bacteria, which may be cultivated through prolonged mask wearing, are all found in larger quantities in patients with advanced stage lung cancer than in earlier stages.
The presence of these bacterial cultures is also associated with a lower chance of survival and increased tumor growth regardless of the stage.”
6.With extended use, medical masks will begin to break down and release chemicals that are then inhaled. Tiny microfibers are also released, which can cause health problems when inhaled. This hazard was highlighted in a performance study16 being published in the June 2021 issue of Journal of Hazardous Materials.

Children — How masks are disrupting their brain development https://www.greenmedinfo.com/blog/video-putting-our-kids-first-look-covid-19-school-guidelines-and-how-theyre-affec This video brought me to tears pretty much all the way through. It’s the June 1st, 2021 presentation by Leila Centner at the 3rd Annual Advanced Medicine Conference. Leila Centner is co-founder of Centner Academy, a pre- and grade school, in Miami, Florida.
The whole video is extraordinarily wonderful, and some very notable parts are:
— at 10:50 on the timeline, Dr. Jim Meehan reveals the real reason the mask mandate came about, and details the “horrendous harm" masks are having on his child patients.
Safety studies on masks have not been done. One of the universities in Germany registered 26,000 incidents of children suffering from masks. Some neurons in the hippocampus, the area of the brain where emotional development takes place, will die very quickly from lack of oxygen in the brain. (CDC = Center for Disease Control, NIH = National Institutes of Health, FDA = Food and Drug Administration)
— at 18:50, Dr. Larry Palevsky explains how a child’s brain develops from the hindbrain (fight or flight response) through the midbrain, to the forebrain (focus, thought, intelligence, analysis, comprehension, etc.), and how mask wearing disrupts this process.
— at 24:00, a 4th grader’s poignant and revealing testimony of his experience of mask-wearing and social distancing in his school.
— at 29:30, the American Institute for Economic Research reports in their March 17, 2021 issue that there are “More 'Covid Suicides' than Covid Deaths in Kids.”
— at 30:00, a study involving 10 million participants shows there is no asymptomatic transmission in kids.
— at 34:00, there is a list of 10 areas in which, under the CDC’s direction, American kids are sicker than ever.
— at 38:00, a beautiful song about our children by David Onka
— at 43:00, at the website — standforhealthfreedom.com — there an easy, automatic way to contact politicians about this.
— at 46:00, Leila tells us how we can get her power point presentation.
Leila Centner, says “Calm, joy, and peace can solve problems, not the fight or flight response.” Also, that “We don’t need an army to fight back. One person is enough.”
Post "Spanish Flu" studies show wearing of masks didn't improve the outcome of the pandemic...
"In 1919, Wilfred Kellogg’s study for the California State Board of Health concluded that mask ordinances “applied forcibly to entire communities” did not decrease cases and deaths, as confirmed by comparisons of cities with widely divergent policies on masking. Masks were used most frequently out in public, where they were least effective, whereas masks were removed when people went inside to work or socialize, where they were most likely to be infected. Kellogg found the evidence persuasive: “The case against the mask as a measure of compulsory application for the control of epidemics appears to be complete.”
In a comprehensive study published in 1921, Warren T. Vaughn declared “the efficacy of face masks is still open to question.” The problem was human behavior: Masks were used until they were filthy, worn in ways that offered little or no protection, and compulsory laws did not overcome the “failure of cooperation on the part of the public.” Vaughn’s sobering conclusion: “It is safe to say that the face mask as used was a failure.”
In 1927, Edwin Jordan’s definitive study, published in the Journal of the American Medical Association as a series of articles and then as a book, determined that masks were effective when worn by patients already sick or by those directly exposed to victims, including nurses and physicians. Jordan also acknowledged, however, that “masks are uncomfortable and inconvenient, as anyone who has worn them can testify” and require a great deal of “discipline, self-imposed or other.” Jordan came to a more guarded conclusion: “The effect of mask wearing throughout the general community is not easy to determine.”"

Speaker Representative Kara Hope says, So if I have a business I can require people to wear their hair short or, or dress a certain way, why can't I require them to wear a mask? Because mask wearing is a biochemical nightmare. It's a metabolic nightmare that increases your risk for cancer, it increases your cardiovascular risk, it basically makes your body breathe, your body is trying to it's got too much CO2 in it, which actually helps cancer to grow. It's actually extremely inflammatory, it's going to exacerbate every inflammatory disease, including diabetes and hypertension. It causes hypertension, because your body is trying to breathe harder to actually maintain homeostasis, but it can't because it keeps getting too much co2 and not enough oxygen. And so you are asking somebody to put their health at risk. Some people can medically tolerate this, but many people cannot.
Peter Hitchiner (9 News) 1:03 Healthy People are being warned against using face masks to protect themselves against the virus. As Justin Conway explained, experts fear incorrect use could lead to more infection.
Dan Andrews (dictator) 1:14 wearing masks like that is wasting a mask. That's a mask that won't be available when it's actually needed.
Justin Conway 1:19 The state government's advice on wearing face masks is in line with the World Health Organization.
Justin Conway 1:24 If you wear a mask the wrong way, it could actually make you sick.
Dr. Holly Seale M.D. 1:28 When I've been walking about I've been seeing people touching the front of the masks, adjusting the masks on their face. And then going and touching other things. What we've got to remember is that front of the mask may be picking up different pathogens. And the same goes for gloves. Justin Conway What they also will stop is you actually washing your hands, Justin Conway, Nine News.
Tammy Clark 1:52 And what we found is that by allowing people to work in their own homemade respiratory protection, we were actually causing a greater hazard. We were causing people to work with reduced oxygen intake, reduced carbon dioxide output. And in addition, we were really finding that we were stressing the cardiopulmonary systems of these employees. Because when you cover the mouth and nose and you exert physical energy during your work, during your task, whatever it might be, you're really stressing the cardiopulmonary system because you change the way that you breathe. You have to forcibly inhale and forcibly exhale, that tax is the heart, it taxes the lungs, and we have given people heart attacks by allowing them to work with their mouth and nose covered with absolutely no regulation, no oversight, no medical oversight, no work rest cycles, things like that. So OSHA actually created the respiratory protection standard to prevent people from working with their mouth and nose covered and exerting physical energy because of the greater hazard that it creates.
Dr. Andrew Kaufman 2:56 I don't think it takes a lot of common sense to figure out that if you obstruct your breathing, that it's going to have a detrimental effect. For example, there was a court case in Germany, where I believe it was bank employees were required to wear masks for the whole shift like eight hours a day. And there was a doctor who testified with evidence from I believe EEG studies that showed actual brain damage as a result of that and that case was successful.
Speaker 3:27 Let me be very clear, and I'm sure the physicians who are up here will reflect this as well. The average American does not need to go out and buy a mask.
Speaker 3:36 Should you wear a mask if you're healthy? No.
Speaker 3:40 Government officials say face masks are not necessary if you are healthy and don't entirely provide protection against the Coronavirus
Speaker 3:49 Mask do not work for the general public and preventing them from getting Coronavirus.
Dr. April Baller (WHO) 3:53 If you do not have any respiratory symptoms such as fever, cough or runny nose you do not need to wear a medical mask like this one. And if you're not sick you shouldn't be wearing a medical mask but if you are then you should be
Del Bigtree 4:22 right so we've hit 2000 which is now we know is not safe for any school or any workplace environment. 4000 Our going over 5000 Now we're into what's known to be a dangerous zone 6000 parts per million co2 6600 This is a cloth mask. I thought when I was wearing a cloth I thought when I was wearing cloth masks that this was actually safer. So up in the 9000s with both of these masks, already 1000s. Unbelievable, totally unsafe.
Kristen Megan Kelly 5:11 During surgery, if a surgeon or a nurse or an anesthesiologist is wearing an n95, or even a surgical mask or an ear loop mask in that surgical suite, if they touch that mask one time, they have to either exit the room or a nurse aide has to help them change it out without touching it. The second you touch your mask, not only are you cross contaminating that mask, but you are reducing its likelihood to control a hazard.
Tammy Clark 5:39 The maximum amount of time that you can wear a surgical mask in a hospital setting or surgical center is two hours. That's Max. Right and even then they have to have work / rest cycles they have to properly don and doff by the ear loops. You can't just grab because you contaminate it's called "fomite transmission", your hands have bacteria on them from what you're touching and the environment around you. So when you touch that facemask, you Now breathe in that pathogen, or that contaminant through fomite transmission. So there is a lot to the PPE standard. Whenever we give an Employee Personal Protective Equipment, there's a lot of requirements that we have to follow through it. And it all has to be documented. Yet what OSHA is doing right now, with this mask, you know, this blanket mask mandate, they're not following any of it. And they're getting away with it because they've changed the name. It's not PPE anymore. It's now they call it community protection or whatever. But I'm sorry, you can't have your cake and eat it too. If you're requiring people to put something on to protect them or somebody else. It's personal protective equipment, it falls under the PPE standard. When you have a facial covering on for an extended period of time, there is a it creates a very moist environment which creates and breeds bacteria very quickly. So when doctors, nurses, construction workers, whatever industry or occupation, employees are required to wear masks or respirators they are told and trained on when to take them off. Work rest cycles are very important, how to properly down and off them and how to properly clean and sanitize them. Because we know that this amount of bacteria building up on the inside of a mask that we keep breathing is going to cause things like bacterial pneumonia. perioral dermatitis is a big one that we started seeing. And that's what you know, some people jokingly refer to as masking. The blistering, right, the outbreaks around the face on the skin, the red marks, but it's very serious. Actually, it's a form of staff. It's a bacterial staph infection, and it's very serious. It's nothing to laugh about. And it's 100% because of the extended and prolonged mask wearing in a bacterial written environment.
Dr. Eric Nepute 7:48 We've seen so many increases of bacterial respiratory infections in our private practices over the last 12 months. It's not even funny. We've seen so many fungal infections because people are improperly wearing masks.
Speaker 8:00 During the H1N1 outbreak and the SARS outbreak. studies were done. You can look at the BMJ open studies. And multiple RCT studies with meta data analysis that showed cloth masks can filter close to 0%. When controlling health hazards associated with airborne infectious diseases,
Mike Pence (Former USVP) 8:22 The best mask we have outside of a level four containment suit, the best mask we have, which we used to call a tuberculosis mask because that's what it was really designed for are n95 Medical masks, and they screen particles down 2.3 microns not all particles, but 95% of them. Even they when tested don't screen these small particle viruses. And when they've really done sophisticated tests like in the environmental services department, the University of Maryland they looked at putting people in these hermetically sealed containers with these n 95 masks and they show that when you cough or sneeze, the small virus particles, the ones that are infectiou,. go through the mask.
Speaker 9:04 I'll leave you with these questions to ponder if maths work why do we social distance as social distancing works? Why do we wear the masks? If both work? Why the lockdowns and if all that works? Why the vaccine? I think you know the answers but no doubt you'll ignore the truth because that's what you're told to do. I don't thought do your job. Open the schools, drop the mask and leave the parenting to us. Thank you.
Peggy Hall (Wellness Expert) 9:33 It's dehumanizing. By Design. We're not intended to only see people's eyes.
Alex Newman 9:41 When you can't see a person's facial expression. You really don't form a connection with them. Right? We thrive on seeing other people's smiles and seeing other people's emotional reactions and happiness and sadness. It really is an effort to dehumanize the individual. It also encourages people to behave aggressively and hatefully and violently toward their fellow man. When people's faces are hidden, they feel bolder in doing evil. And, you know, I think we really see this in riots, right. riots and mob activity becomes much easier when people feel like they can cover their face. And they can remain anonymous. Because it's a psychological thing. And again, there's been studies done on this even going back many decades. And what the studies have found is consistently, mask wearing promotes aggressive, violent behavior. And there was one study, I can't remember the name of who did it, but they looked at different tribes. And what they found was the ones that painted their face or covered their face, were more barbarous, were more violent, were more vicious than the tribes that didn't do that where where people's faces were visible. So there's a lot of psychological components at work here. But I think importantly, it really is a symbol of submission. And so for me to see such a huge percentage of the American people succumbing to this mask, idiocy, it's tragic, it makes me want to cry.
Dr. Eric Nepute 11:11 Well, fear is an acronym, and it stands for false evidence appearing real. And right now what's happening is they are using fear, as a marketing tool mean, what you're really experiencing is a rollout of a brand new product, that's what you're experiencing any of you that are in the marketing world can absolutely look back and say, Oh, that makes total sense. What they're doing is they're putting a piece of product out, and they're seeing how people respond to that. And then they change their messaging, and advertising according to how people respond.
Dr. Annie Bukacek 11:41 And I'm gonna quote Edmund Burke here. I mean, this is in the 1700s. And he said this about fear, quote, no passion, so effectively robs the mind of all its powers of acting and reasoning. So when you scare people enough, their capacity for reason and their capacity to act in their own best interest is severely severely curtailed. And there was a quote from HL Mencken, the whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed. And thus clamor is to be led to safety by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them
Peggy Hall (Wellness Expert) 12:15 imaginary. When you're wearing this scam, this facial identity concealment device, not only are you restricting your breath, you are blocking your ability to smell, not just breathe through your nose, but to smell. And the olfactory nerve is called the first cranial nerve. That's how important it is, in the classification of the brain. The olfactory nerve not only governs your ability to smell, it governs your emotional states. And it also governs your learning and your memory. So when you think back, you know, maybe you got a whiff of some fresh baked cookies, and it transported you back to you know, childhood or, you know, your favorite, you got a whiff of your favorite perfume or flower. And it instantly reminded you of a you know, a previous experience. That's how important smelling is to our brain and to our brain development and to our memory, and to our emotional balance. So people that are obscuring and obstructing their ability to smell, not just breathe, they are damaging their memory, their learning capacity, and their mental balance. And when we've seen altercations in different settings in you know, grocery stores, or what have you, when those that are wearing a mask are getting, you know, emotionally unhinged, probably it's because they are no longer using their olfactory nerve. So that is something that's very troubling to me, smelling is such an important part of life, we actually can smell fear. We can smell of course, if there's rotten food, if there's a gas leak, if there's toxic waste, smelling, is an extremely important part of us interacting in our daily life. So all of these levels of covering smiles, of obstructing the breath of interfering with somebody being able to speak clearly and be heard to hear someone smile to you actually, I said here because it almost is like you can hear someone smile. It's so vivid, and to have that obstructed to me is one of the most harmful aspects of this entire of these shenanigans as I'm going to call them it's dehumanizing. By design, we're not intended to only see people's eyes
Tammy Clark 14:40 all is not lost. And I know right now people are feeling very discouraged, overwhelmed. I get the calls from people who are suicidal. I've had those calls at one o'clock in the morning. I get the calls from people who are in a wheelchair. They can't wear a face mask because they've got an oxygen cannula. And they've been wheeled into a snowbank by a hospital system that refuses to treat them and is denying them medical care. They're sitting there waiting for their bus to come pick them out. And they're sitting in a snowbank, egregious, illegal, completely discriminatory, but it's happening to people all across this country. And I get those phone calls from people who are crying. And they just feel this sense of despair, of hopelessness. And so I really want to just leave people with the sentiment and the understanding that all is not lost, there's still hope. As long as there is breath in us, there is hope. We know if we have a biblical worldview, what the last chapter is, right, we know who wins this war. And I would just encourage people, as long as we can still get together and we can fight we need to. So if we stand up, and we organize, which is what we are doing, we can end this and we can take it back. So start small, just go to your local grocery store, and don't put on a mask. And I know that might be scary for some people. So start small, just don't put your mask on. Just walk in and smile and keep on walking. If you're going to get your groceries, you know where you're going. Don't stop and have a conversation with someone about a mask. Just tell them no, thank you. I'm sorry. But I don't wear one because of health reasons and keep going. Right? It's not a lie. You I don't wear one for health reasons, because I know how unhealthy it is. But I've never been tackled and those little victories will make you feel so big, it will make you feel so good. I get those emails too, because I teach people how to go about your business, how to live your life without submitting to tyranny and without submitting to these mandates. And I get people call me and send me messages all the time. Um, I hit a lady in Costco the other day, my son and I were there and and she came up to us and she said, they're sorry, not Costco. They're horrible Sam's Club. I was in Sam's Club. And she came up to me and she said, How are you not wearing a mask? How are you able to get away with it? And I just looked at her. And I said, because I don't need to ask permission. I don't have to wear one. And so I just don't. And she just looked at me for a couple of minutes. She ripped her mask off. And she walked away. She said thank you, I feel so free. And we giggled because we saw her all the way through every time, you know, we were going to another aisle there, she was smiling from ear to ear just she felt so free. It just never dawned on her to refuse to obey that she had the choice to refuse to comply. And so just start small. And those little victories will make you feel really great. And then you just keep sharing the information standing up as you're able to in your own world, in your own circle. And that kind of courage is contagious.
Speaker 17:29 I've heard more people than I care to, in my lifetime in the offices of government, say things to the effect of we're just going to have to give up a little sovereignty to get this done. Nope, nope, you don't have to give up any sovereignty at all. You don't have to give it up.
Peggy Hall (Wellness Expert) 17:45 And many people have said, Oh, come on, Peggy. It's just, it's just for a few minutes, you're making such a big deal out of this. It doesn't just do it. It's no big deal. I'm never going to do it. I've made sacrifices, very minimal sacrifices, not on the level that many people have done where they've, you know, had to leave their job, or they've been denied medical care what have you. But I really applaud and admire people who are going to go to the mat, I call it marching it all the way to heaven. And I will, I'm going to march it all the way to heaven, I am never going to stop. There is no law that can ever be valid or legitimate, that requires anyone to restrict their breath. We are born with the right to life. Life requires oxygen, restricting someone's oxygen is taking away their life. That's why even the governors, the mayors, even the Health Officers, they all have stated that there are exemptions that these are just guidelines. And they're kicking the can down the road to have the stores and the businesses be the enforcers. They are strong arming these businesses, the businesses are actually becoming sort of the new government. I call it the United States of Costco, because they're now making these laws via their store policies that are requiring the masks, likely it will require the vaccinations. And people said to me also, Piggy, why are you making such a deal out of the masks? This was months ago? And I said Look, you're not in California. I don't think you have any idea how bad it is here. But it's not about the masks. It's about your freedom.
Tammy Clark 19:26 So we've been working really hard to educate people. And to just encourage people. Listen, nobody can make you wear a face mask. Nobody can make you do anything. Stand up and refuse to obey. Now, is that going to change your lifestyle? Yep, it's changed mine a little bit. There are some stores I can't go to because they're mask Nazis. Well, guess what, they're never gonna get my business again. Because I know those stores that I can go to who do respect my rights and who are not going to hassle me and harass me. And I just walk in like I own the joint. If they asked me if I need a mask, I say no thank you and I just keep walking. We all have the ability to refuse to obey. And you know, it's our civic duty to refuse to obey and go along with tyranny. Because if we comply, what are we doing? We're enabling it. We're furthering it. We're giving it a voice, and we're giving it power. If we refuse to obey, and we stop complying, we take the power back and who has the power? We the People, right? So it's up to us. We can end this real fast. Like I said, one word noncompliance. https://www.bitchute.com/video/Sl7hsRSJNjDD/
Below is a list of the gold-standard research which spans across decades, covering almost 100 different studies, all concluding the inefficacy of masks in preventing the spread of respiratory illnesses.

“Among 2862 randomized participants, 2371 completed the study and accounted for 5180 HCW-seasons. … Among outpatient health care personnel, N95 respirators vs medical masks as worn by participants in this trial resulted in no significant difference in the incidence of laboratory-confirmed influenza.”
Long, Y. et al. (2020) “Effectiveness of N95 respirators versus surgical masks against influenza: A systematic review and meta-analysis,” J Evid Based Med. 2020; 1–9.
“A total of six RCTs involving 9,171 participants were included. There were no statistically significant differences in preventing laboratory-confirmed influenza, laboratory-confirmed respiratory viral infections, laboratory-confirmed respiratory infection, and influenza-like illness using N95 respirators and surgical masks. Meta-analysis indicated a protective effect of N95 respirators against laboratory-confirmed bacterial colonization (RR = 0.58, 95% CI 0.43-0.78). The use of N95 respirators compared with surgical masks is not associated with a lower risk of laboratory-confirmed influenza.”
Cowling, B. et al. (2010) “Face masks to prevent transmission of influenza virus: A systematic review,” Epidemiology and Infection, 138(4), 449-456.
None of the studies reviewed showed a benefit from wearing a mask, in either HCW or community members in households (H). See summary Tables 1 and 2 therein.
Bin-Reza et al. (2012) “The use of masks and respirators to prevent transmission of influenza: a systematic review of the scientific evidence,” Influenza and Other Respiratory Viruses 6(4), 257–267.
“There were 17 eligible studies. … None of the studies established a conclusive relationship between mask/respirator use and protection against influenza infection.”
Smith, J.D. et al. (2016) “Effectiveness of N95 respirators versus surgical masks in protecting health care workers from acute respiratory infection: a systematic review and meta-analysis,” CMAJ Mar 2016
“We identified six clinical studies … . In the meta-analysis of the clinical studies, we found no significant difference between N95 respirators and surgical masks in associated risk of (a) laboratory-confirmed respiratory infection, (b) influenza-like illness, or (c) reported work-place absenteeism.”

“Self-reported assessment of clinical outcomes was prone to bias. Evidence of a protective effect of masks or respirators against verified respiratory infection (VRI) was not statistically significant.”
Jefferson T, Del Mar CB, Dooley L, (2020) “A meta-analysis included 44 new RCTs and cluster-RCTs in this update, bringing the total number of randomized trials to 67.
This analysis concluded that there is low certainty evidence from all trials reviewed that wearing a mask may make little or no difference to the outcome of respiratory illness compared to not wearing a mask.
Lipp A, Edwards P (2005) “Disposable surgical face masks: a systematic review.”
“Two randomized controlled trials were included involving a total of 1453 patients. In a small trial there was a trend towards masks being associated with fewer infections, whereas in a large trial there was no difference in infection rates between the masked and unmasked group.”

“Our results suggest that cloth masks are only marginally beneficial in protecting individuals from particles<2.5 μm”
Coronavirus is 0.125 microns.
A recent study out of MIT for example concluded that when indoors while wearing a mask, there is no difference if you are six feet away from somebody or sixty feet away. The MIT researchers concluded that this is because the air you exhale is warm air, and warm air will rise. The researchers say this is especially true while wearing a mask, as masks force the exhaled air directly upward.
Airborne transmission arises through the inhalation of aerosol droplets exhaled by an infected person and is now thought to be the primary transmission route of COVID-19.
Again, Coronavirus is 0.125 microns, meaning the size is much too small to be filtered through the majority of masks, and especially the surgical masks most people wear as protection, and then continuously reuse. Not only does the virus pass through, but it easily enters in and around.
Sturgeon insists kids must stay masked at school: 'Many young people understand and agree especially when cases in the younger age group are rising that face coverings do provide important protection So this is a matter that requires and will receive careful consideration.' (Feb 2022)
Masks rapidly reduce the body's oxygen levels (hypoxemia) which compromises your immune system; this has multiple, adverse effects and is especially detrimental to those with pre-existing conditions including asthma and other respiratory illnesses. The elderly and immunocompromised* individuals (see below) are at greatest risk.
*Examples of persons with weakened immune systems include those with HIV/AIDS; cancer and transplant patients who are taking certain immunosuppressive drugs; and those with inherited diseases that affect the immune system (e.g., congenital agammaglobulinemia, congenital IgA deficiency). The risk of developing severe disease may differ depending on each person’s degree of immune suppression.
“Oxygen deficiency. An oxygen deficient atmosphere has an oxygen content below 19.5% by volume. Oxygen deficiency may occur in confined spaces, which include, but are not limited to, storage tanks, process vessels, towers, drums, tank cars, bins, sewers, septic tanks, underground utility tunnels, manholes, and pits.”

Masking lack of evidence with politics (23 July 2020) by Tom Jefferson, Carl Heneghan shows the poor scientific data available concerning face masks wearing and the particular doubts concerning cloth masks. In one study it was found that " This trial found ILI (Influenza Like Illnesses)rates were 13 times higher in Vietnamese hospital workers allocated to cloth masks compared to medical/surgical masks, RR 13.25, (95%CI 1.74 to 100.97) and over three times higher when compared to no masks, RR 3.49 (95%CI 1.00 to 12.17). "
- agives a negative answer to the question. " In the current epidemiological situation in Norway, wearing facemasks to reduce the spread of COVID-19 is not recommended for individuals in the community without respiratory symptoms who are not in near contact with people who are known to be infected "
Other interesting claims:
"There is evidence of a protective effect of medical facemasks against respiratory infections in community settings. However, study results vary greatly. Randomised trials from community settings indicate a small protective effect. [...]. There is no reliable evidence of the effectiveness of non-medical facemasks in community settings. There is likely to be substantial variation in effectiveness between products. However, there is only limited evidence from laboratory studies of potential differences in effectiveness when different products are used in the community. Given the low prevalence of COVID-19 currently, even if facemasks are assumed to be effective, the difference in infection rates between using facemasks and not using facemasks would be small. Assuming that 20% of people infectious with SARS-CoV-2 do not have symptoms, and assuming a risk reduction of 40% for wearing facemask, 200 000 people would need to wear facemasks to prevent one new infection per week in the current epidemiological situation. "
Oklahoma Doctors Claim Masks are Harmful to Healthy People and File Lawsuit Against Mandates (Sept 2020) " Optometrist Robert Zoellner, Clay Clark, Dr. James Meehan, MD, and other Tulsa-based business owners are asking the city to immediately repeal the mask mandate which was passed by city council last month.
The group alleges wearing masks is causing healthy people to become sick while trying to prevent the spread of a disease that is not a deadly threat to children and much of the public.
“On the OSHA website it states that employers shouldn’t make employees work in an environment where they have less than a 19.5 percent oxygen level,” said Clayton Clark, one of the plaintiffs. “And the mandated masks cause employees to dip below a 19.5 percent oxygen level within 10 seconds of wearing a mask, so I don’t want to make my healthy employees sick.”"
Scientist specialized in organic chemistry shows how cloth masks are a source of infection due to the accumulation of viruses on their surface and the common touching of them: The Year of Disguises

Similar conclusions are confirmed by Dr. James Meehan, MD who warned that "mask wearing has “well-known risks that have been well-studied and they’re not being discussed in the risk analysis.
“I’m seeing patients that have facial rashes, fungal infections, bacterial infections. Reports coming from my colleagues, all over the world, are suggesting that the bacterial pneumonias are on the rise.
“Why might that be? Because untrained members of the public are wearing medical masks, repeatedly… in a non-sterile fashion… They’re becoming contaminated. They’re pulling them off of their car seat, off the rearview mirror, out of their pocket, from their countertop, and they’re reapplying a mask that should be worn fresh and sterile every single time.” Medical Doctor Warns that “Bacterial Pneumonias Are on the Rise” from Mask Wearing - 6 Oct 2020

4-Year-Old Almost Dies due to Lung Infection Caused by Prolonged Mask Wearing – Doctor Rants “How Many Children Must Die?” (Dr. Eric Nepute's report, Nov 2020)
Couple of NIH studies from 2004-2020 all finding verifiable health effects from wearing a face mask, including scientifically verified reduction is blood oxygen level:
Though WHO supports facemasks only for Covid-19 patients, healthy "social exercisers" too exercise strenuously with customized facemasks or N95 which hypothesized to pose more significant health risks and tax various physiological systems especially pulmonary, circulatory and immune systems. Exercising with facemasks may reduce available Oxygen and increase air trapping preventing substantial carbon dioxide exchange. The hypercapnic hypoxia may potentially increase acidic environment, cardiac overload, anaerobic metabolism and renal overload, which may substantially aggravate the underlying pathology of established chronic diseases. Further contrary to the earlier thought, no evidence exists to claim the facemasks during exercise offer additional protection from the droplet transfer of the virus. Hence, we recommend social distancing is better than facemasks during exercise and optimal utilization rather than exploitation of facemasks during exercise.
" Wearing a surgical mask modifies significantly and clinically dyspnea without influencing walked distance. "
Breathing through N95 mask materials have been shown to impede gaseous exchange and impose an additional workload on the metabolic system of pregnant healthcare workers, and this needs to be taken into consideration in guidelines for respirator use. The benefits of using N95 mask to prevent serious emerging infectious diseases should be weighed against potential respiratory consequences associated with extended N95 respirator usage.
This study is the first RCT of cloth masks, and the results caution against the use of cloth masks. This is an important finding to inform occupational health and safety. Moisture retention, reuse of cloth masks and poor filtration may result in increased risk of infection. Further research is needed to inform the widespread use of cloth masks globally. However, as a precautionary measure, cloth masks should not be recommended for HCWs, particularly in high-risk situations, and guidelines need to be updated.
MORE SCIENTIFIC STUDIES SHOWING THAT:
1. Preliminary report on surgical mask induced deoxygenation during major surgery
Face mask side effects include lowered oxygen levels.
This study proved that surgeons that wore a mask in surgery for an hour + had significant reductions in blood oxygen saturation.
This is relevant because most of us are being made to wear face masks at work for the whole shift, long journeys on public transport, and when we are in a public places doing shopping etc. and this requires a degree of exertion that is not taken into account.
"Considering our findings, pulse rates of the surgeon’s increase and SpO2 decrease after the first hour.”
Decreasing oxygen and increasing carbon dioxide in the bloodstream stimulates a compensatory response in the respiratory centers of the brain. These changes in blood gases result in increases in both frequency and depth of breaths. This exposes another risk – if your mask traps some virus you are breathing more hence increasing viral load and exposure.
2. Impact of structural features on dynamic breathing resistance of healthcare face mask
Face mask side effects include impeded breathing.
Ask people if they have issues breathing in these masks. anecdotal or not, as everyone is different.
"The results showed that each evaluation index was significantly different (P < 0.05) among different test
Study article: https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/31280156/
3. Respiratory consequences of N95-type Mask usage in pregnant healthcare workers-a controlled clinical study
The benefits of using N95 mask to prevent serious emerging infectious diseases should be weighed against potential respiratory consequences associated with extended N95 respirator usage.
"Study article: https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/26579222
"It is known that the N95 mask, if worn for hours, can reduce blood oxygenation as much as 20 percent, which can lead to a loss of consciousness, as happened to the hapless fellow driving aroundalone in his car wearing an N95 mask, causing him to pass out, crash his car and sustain injuries. I am sure that we have several cases of elderly individuals or any person with poor lung function passing out, hitting their head. This, of course, can lead to death”
"CONCLUSIONS: Breathing through N95 mask materials have been shown to impede gaseous exchange and impose an additional workload on the metabolic system of pregnant healthcare workers,and this needs to be taken into consideration in guidelines for respirator use”
Yet we force pregnant women to use them…? What could this do to the fetus?
4. Headaches and the N95 face-mask amongst healthcare providers
Face mask side effects include headaches.
These headaches can force you to use added or unnecessary medications like painkillers that carry their own side effects. The theory as to why masks can trigger headaches is the RESTRICTION OF OXYGEN.
What are the long-term health effects on Health Care Workers with headaches arising from impeded breathing?
Here are several sources and studies that back up this claim:

"CONCLUSIONS: In healthy healthcare workers, FFR did not impose any important physiological burden during 1 hour of use, at realistic clinical work rates, but the FFR dead-space carbon dioxide andoxygen levels were significantly above and below, respectively, the ambient workplace standards, and elevated P(CO2) is a possibility”
Remember in "healthy healthcare workers” even their carbon dioxide levels rose. Most of the wider public have at least one health problem. Even healthy people were shown to have elevated CO2 levelsabove the healthy guidelines.

19. Other Face Mask Side Effects and Health Implications to Consider
There is a great potential for harm that may arise from public policies forcing mask use on the wider population.
The following unanswered questions arise unanswered:
20. [Gaps in asepsis due to surgical caps, face masks, external surfaces of infusion bottles and sterile wrappers of disposable articles]
"It is obvious that the surfaces of the boxes of sterile packed disposable instruments and infusion bottles are not sterile. The disposable surgical masks and surgical caps used for sterile clothing are delivered by the producers not sterile, either.” AND THIS IS HOSPITAL EQUIPMENT.

21. Mask Production Video
This is a "factory” that produces alot of masks. Does this look a sterile environment to you? This is what the majority of us are getting when we purchase online or in stores that sell them in bulk. Do you wantthat on your face?
22. Allergies and the Immune System
Can pathogen-laden droplets interact with environmental dust and aerosols captured on the mask? Can this elicit a greater reaction to viruses? For example, if you have a dust allergy your mask is collecting this thus causing inflamation to the wearer and lowering his or her immune system.
"This can cause wheezing, itching, runny nose, watery or itchy eyes, and other symptoms” would that not
facilitate spread and infection rate of viruses?

26. Mask mandates may affect a child’s emotional, intellectual development
Face mask side effects stagnate a child’s natural intellectual development. It is well known that children find it hard to recognise faces up until a certain age. Mask use will further interfere with this. Is this healthy for a developing child?
27. Disabled People and Masks Contributing Toward Mental Health Issues
Face mask side effects and mental health
What about disabled people? Deaf /people hard of hearing rely on mouth reading. What are the implications for them? What about people who suffer cognitive and behavioural disorders like autism? This could cause them HUGE distress. Not just from wearing a mask, but seeing others in masks (because let’s face it – IT’S NOT NORMAL BEHAVIOUR).
Can masks cause anxiety, or make other mental health disorders worse?
Since masks CAN impede breathing, this can cause fainting and other bodily reaction that would otherwise be avoided if masks were not used. Here is a search engine link to prove that it is very common:

32. Why Masks Don’t Work Against COVID-19
Can used and loaded masks become vectors of enhanced transmission for both the wearer and other people? (The evidence from studies suggest yes). Masks become useless after about 20 minutes due to the moisture in your breath. This moisture can become the droplets that viruses travel on. Can this not facilitate transmission?
Can masks become collectors and retainers of pathogens that otherwise, could be avoided when breathing without a mask? (The evidence suggests yes).
Can large droplets trapped via a mask become atomized or aerosolized into breathable components? Even down to the virion size. (The evidence suggests yes).

1. Evidence that masks prevent infection.
2. Evidence that masks don’t cause oxygen deprivation which can lead to seizures.
3. Evidence that breathing in your own carbon dioxide does not cause bacterial infections and respiratory disorders.
4. Evidence that wearing masks does not cause stress and anxiety.
5. Evidence that wearing masks prevented the spread of the Spanish Flu.
6. Evidence that dismissal for not wearing a mask at work would not represent a material breach of the Equality Act, which entitles you to claim compensation for discrimination, as well as unfair dismissal.
7. Evidence that the government lurgy has ever been proven to exist.
8. Evidence that the Coronavirus Act and the regulations which arose out of it are not adjudged to be repugnant and void under the common law.
9. Evidence that it is not a crime ancillary to genocide to collaborate with government policy, which has already resulted in hundreds of thousands of deaths in care homes and hospitals.
10. Evidence that the government has not relied upon fraudulent data to frighten the population into fearful compliance with its legally unenforceable diktats. (Daniel Patel)
Gregory of Nyssa, [25.08.21 15:52]
I sent my son to school with a mask exemption card. His guidance teacher grilled him about it and phoned asking us to give a reason for his exemption. We responded by asking why they wanted to record this information and reminded them that requiring proof of exemption is illegal. It may be a small act of resistance , but here is what my wife and I are doing:
A. Asking the school to email us a copy of their policy for dealing with exemptions. (We aren’t holding our breath on this)
B. Asking why exempt pupils are required to identify with a purple badge. Demanding that children from a minority group identify with a visible marker is against every tenet of inclusion policy.
C. Demanding that the school explain its practice of recording reasons for exemptions. This is illegal on two fronts as it breaches both the advice of the Chief Medical Officer and that of GDPR recording guidelines.
ARE YOU STILL WEARING A MASK?
Carbon dioxide poisoning
Carbon dioxide is a physiologically important gas, produced by the body as a result of cellular metabolism. It is widely used in the food industry in the carbonation of beverages, in fire extinguishers as an 'inerting' agent and in the chemical industry. Its main mode of action is as an asphyxiant, although it also exerts toxic effects at cellular level. At low concentrations, gaseous carbon dioxide appears to have little toxicological effect. At higher concentrations it leads to an increased respiratory rate, tachycardia, cardiac arrhythmias and impaired consciousness. Concentrations >10% may cause convulsions, coma and death. Solid carbon dioxide may cause burns following direct contact. If it is warmed rapidly, large amounts of carbon dioxide are generated, which can be dangerous, particularly within confined areas.
The management of carbon dioxide poisoning requires the immediate removal of the casualty from the toxic environment, the administration of oxygen and appropriate supportive care. In severe cases, assisted ventilation may be required. Dry ice burns are treated similarly to other cryogenic burns, requiring thawing of the tissue and suitable analgesia. Healing may be delayed and surgical intervention may be required in severe cases.
Guidance on the interpretation of Workplace exposure standards for airborne contaminants
5.8 Simple asphyxiants
Simple asphyxiants are non-toxic gases which, when present in an atmosphere in high concentrations, lead to a reduction of oxygen concentration by displacement or dilution.It is not appropriate to recommend an exposure standard for simple asphyxiants but it is essential sufficient oxygen concentration is maintained.
The minimum oxygen content in air should be 19.5 per cent by volume under normal pressure. This is equivalent to a partial pressure of oxygen (PO2) of 18.2 kPa (137 mm Hg). At pressures significantly higher or lower than the normal pressure, expert guidance should be sought. Atmospheres deficient in oxygen do not provide adequate sensory warning of danger and most simple asphyxiants are odourless. Unconsciousness and death can rapidly ensue in an environment which is deficient in oxygen. There have been a considerable number of deaths among inappropriately protected workers who have entered confined spaces or tanks before these spaces were adequately vented or gas-tested. The WHS Regulations and the Confined Spaces Code of Practice detail the precautions which should be observed in such environments.
The most common asphyxiant is carbon dioxide. It gives no warning of its presence in asphyxiating concentrations and can have toxic effects at concentrations which do not cause asphyxiation.
Effects of elevated oxygen and carbon dioxide partial pressures on respiratory function and cognitive performance
CO2 toxicity in humans
Carbon dioxide at low concentration has little, if any, toxicological effects. At higher concentrations (>5%), it causes the development of hypercapnia and respiratory acidosis. Severe acidosis increases the effects of parasympathetic nervous activity, possibly by interfering the hydrolysis of acetylcholine by acetylcholinesterase, resulting in a depression of the respiration and the circulation .
Concentrations of more than 10% carbon dioxide may cause convulsions, coma, and death [1, 15]. CO2 levels of more than 30% act rapidly leading to loss of consciousness in seconds. This would explain why victims of accidental intoxications often do not act to resolve the situation (open a door, etc.) [7, 10, 16].
Studies have shown a wide variability of CO2 tolerance. Blood concentrations ranged between at least 0.055 and 0.085 atm. (41.8–64.6 mmHg) among subjects with symptoms, suggesting that a safe CO2 exposure level cannot be characterized by a single value . Concentrations of fatal cases of carbon dioxide vary between 14.1 and 26% CO2 and an accompanying O2 level between 4.2 and 25% [1, 8, 11]. It was also determined that CO2 tolerance decreases with age (p?<?0.0001) and suggested that smokers might have more tolerance due to habituation of higher CO2 levels in cigarette smoke [10, 16].
Several studies found significant problems with wearing face mask. Side-effects range from headaches to increased airway resistance, carbon dioxide accumulation, hypoxia, to more severe complications and death by hypercapnia.
Masks hamper oxygen intake; the body and the immune system require optimal levels of oxygen to feed cells and fight off illness, including Covid19.
WHO stands by recommendation to not wear masks
If you feel your health is compromised by wearing dirty fabric over your airway, people have the right to refuse and was expressed by previously well published state mask mandate exemptions: "Proof is not required if someone has an exception. Businesses are also not expected to deny services as not everyone is required to wear a face covering." It is against the law and the Privacy Act of 1999 for anyone to insist on your health information or to discriminate against you for health issues according to the disabilities act of 1992 and 2014.
The mandate that is in Victoria has exceptions, health information privacy mentioned. The extreme psychological manipulation the media is putting the public through mimics the helpless relationship a chronically ill person has with the medical system. It fosters a humiliating, impersonal dependency. It is a clear case of Munchausens syndrome.
Everybody wearing a facemask is suffocating themselves with CO2 poisoning, a condition that gives zero warning due to CO2'S intoxication properties you'll just suddenly drop and if you survive that.. the toxins breed cancer from the toxic O2 displacing gas releasing acids into the bloodstream, creating a feeling of warmth spreading over the wearing preparing the body and mind to transition to death.
It is not the fact that mask wearers are suffocating themselves that does the greatest damage... It's the fact that the brain shuts down higher cognitive abilities and because the body is dying, toxins intoxicate the wearer whose "fight or flight" shuts down all warnings to symptoms of death, because it's trying to protect you from knowing your dying. There is no 'fight or flight' response to CO2 poisoning in the 'confined space' of a facemask, you just drop. This impairment affects drivers, machine operators and sport players who have been seen suddenly dropping on the playing fields.
It's also important to remember that just because the wearer takes the facemask off, doesn't mean that the confined space of their lungs has had the opportunity to be properly ventilated and in fact this is the period of greatest danger as they may falsely assumed it’s safe to tax the heart and lungs.
1 Experts warned against using face masks
It is important to distinguish that a "mandate" is consensual; otherwise it would be a dictate. Private parties have no special authority to enforce practices that have been proven to cause death and great bodily harm and in fact you have a duty of care to prevent it.
Protocols in healthcare settings for donning (putting on) and doffing (taking off) masks ensure the wearer does not contaminate the mask with germs. These protocols are impossible in the general public environment. Therefore, the general public are wearing contaminated (dirty) fabric over their airway.
Germs can grow on the mask to a high enough number to become infectious (infectious dose). The mask incubates the germs you deposit from your unclean (dirty) hands every time you adjust it and picks up germs from every unclean (dirty) surface it touches.
The four requirements for bacteria and fungi to grow (incubate and colonize) are:
Examples bacterial and fungal infections include sinusitis, oral thrush, strep throat, and pulmonary staph infection.
A 2016 study in the Journal of Exposure Science & Environmental Epidemiology found 97% of particles penetrated cloth masks, and 44% of particles penetrated medical masks. They reported that cloth masks are only marginally beneficial in protecting individuals from particles less than 2.5 micrometers. As referenced in the New England Journal of Medicine, the size of Coronavirus particles varied between 0.06 micrometers and 0.14 micrometers. There is zero scientific evidence that wearing a mask for more extended periods, protects the wearer.

Carbon dioxide poisoning: a literature review of an often forgotten cause of intoxication in the emergency department
"Pre-hospital responders also need to pay attention for the possible diagnosis of CO2 intoxication for their own safety. When confronted with a victim, he/she should be removed from the dangerous area as fast as possible and oxygen should be administered. Without adequate treatment, victims may show acute reduced cognitive performance, respiratory failure, and circulatory arrest.
Carbon dioxide (CO2) is a product of combustion, fermentation, and respiration. In normal room air, carbon dioxide percentages are very low (around 0.04%). It is a colorless, odorless, and nonflammable gas that accumulates near the ground (CO2 is 1.5 times heavier than air). These characteristics explain why enclosed environments are vulnerable for CO2 buildup, displacing oxygen from the area . The term “confined space hypoxic syndrome” has been proposed to describe confined space accidents occurring in water meter pits, tanks, holds of ships, mines, underground storage bins, and so forth, resulting from oxygen-deficient atmospheres [2, 3].
Carbon dioxide does not only cause asphyxiation by hypoxia but also acts as a toxicant. At high concentrations, it has been showed to cause unconsciousness almost instantaneously and respiratory arrest within 1 min ."
Attorney Leigh Dundas explains the duty of care for wearing facemask.
Transcript: Leigh Dundas says, Hey guys, Attorney Leigh Dundas here. You know, before I did human rights work, I did a lot of representation of environmental companies, big fortune 100 500 companies that were suing each other. So I do have some background in math and science. And today I wanted to talk to you about the mandatory mask wearing and oxygenation levels in the body. A lot of our big cities and counties and school districts and churches and box stores have said you know what, you have to wear a mask.
A couple of things to note, folks, if you're wearing a mask and thinking that it actually stops the spread of the virus, that's actually pretty much not true in most contexts, because the mesh of the mask is too big, and the virus particle just slips right on through. The second thing that we know about masks and this is the really important thing is they do impede the flow of oxygen into your system. So recently, a county down here in Southern California, decided they were going to put a mandatory mask order in place. And the resident said show us your science that says it's safe for us to wear masks all the time. And they couldn't really show the science so alive the residents while the county was debating the issue this last week went onto the steps of County Hall, put a pulse oximeter on their finger. If you're not familiar with this device, it's a little device, it just clamps onto the end of your finger and it measures the amount of oxygen in your system. And when the people put it on before they had the mask in place. They had about 98 99% oxygenation, which is pretty standard. And that's very normal. Every single person within a few minutes of putting the mask on their face dropped to 92% or below which is hypoxic range. The average range at which our participants found themselves was 86%. It is worth noting that Medicare in your insurance company will actually pay for you to get supplemental oxygen, if you're below 88%. And the average of our participants was two points below that.
Two other people dropped into the 70s, which is severe hypoxia land where cardiac arrest and organ failure and death can occur. One of those was a very fit nurse, she dropped into 76% zone. And the other one was a runner. She runs every day and she was at 79%. So a lot of you know times people go well so and so said to do it, it must be safe. You know, our government told us that DDT was safe. They told us Agent Orange was safe. They told us that pregnant women should smoke camels and that was safe. And it wasn't safe folks, in the same way that a lot of that stuff wasn't safe. This is not safe. If you're walking around with a mask on your face, and your oxygen rain is down in the red zone. That is not okay. So a lot of cities and schools though and counties they weren't really getting the point. So what we did is we made a reenactment of something that actually happened in China a few weeks ago, if you didn't hear two teenage Chinese boys who were at school and had to have a mask on died while they were wearing the mask. We didn't want that to happen here. We made a reenactment here in America that people could track with and understand. And we released that simulation last night online. Immediately. Within the first two hours, I was getting dozens and dozens of people saying I had to wear a mask and something bad happened.
One of the worst stories I heard was from an aunt whose nephew went into the hospital. They put him in pre op he was about to have a surgery, they put a mask on him while he was in pre op and his oxygen rate drops to 80 to 87%. The hospital could not get it north of 87%. Finally the mother ripped the mask off her kid's face. And within two breaths, he was back at 97%. Okay, another woman said her friends, a hairdresser here in Southern California and ended up passing out on the job hitting your head on the chair on the way down. So a couple of things to note, there's a federal agency that is responsible for ensuring workplace safety, including the right amount of oxygen in the stores that people are working in. It's called OSHA. And what it has to say if you go to their website right now about missing oxygen, oxygen is going to sub par below the threshold that should be at is it will cause the person to experience increased breathing rate, accelerated heart rate impair thinking and coordination, even in people who are resting, faulty judgment, exhaustion, nausea, vomiting, loss of consciousness, convulsions and cardiac standstill.
For those of you not familiar with that last term. Let me break it down for you your cardiac is your heart unit. If it's at a standstill you're going to die. last quote from OSHA even if a worker survives the hypoxic insult his organs may show evidence of hypoxic damage, which may be irreversible. For all of you folks who are tired of feeling bad. When you're out in a mask, go buy yourself one of these. And the next time you're out and you're feeling bad, put it on your finger. Okay, maybe you're just having a bad day. And that's why you're feeling bad. Or maybe your oxygen is in the red zone and you need to do something to fix it. I'm not giving you medical or legal advice. I'm just telling you what I would do. I would sit down in that store, I would report it to my boss, I would report it to corporate. If I didn't work there, I would report it to the store manager. And then I would report it to OSHA and the media and if I were feeling really poorly, I'm going to draw a line on one because I don't want to die of a heart attack.
Final note on this point guys, and I am speaking right now to that hospital, who put a kid in a mask and kept his oxygen rate in the 80s and I am talking to the city of Irvine in the city of Costa Mesa and every single county in our state that still has a mandatory mask order and LA Unified School District that wants every teacher and student in a mask this fall and are seated Hartmann of education and everyday on box store quit drinking the frickin Kool Aid. You have got zero science to show this as safe. All of the science shows the exact opposite. I'm going to make it really simple you cannot afford this liability because the next time some employee or parishioner or student or customer goes down on your premises and cracks are head wide open on your concrete floor. Every single attorney and a 30 mile radius is going to be begging to nail your ass to the wall for a seven digit verdict or settlement, and rightly so. We need to start reinserting some sanity into these decisions.
