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

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

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

Abbott’s order took effect on March 10, after cases in Texas had fallen steadily for more than a month. Public health experts begged him to be patient with restrictions for a few more weeks until more of the state’s population could be vaccinated. Vaccine supply was increasing, after all. Why tempt fate by doing what Chile did, encouraging people to emerge from lockdown before there was enough immunity in the population to hold off a wave?

Abbott didn’t listen, and was attacked by the president for “Neanderthal thinking” by insisting on easing precautions.

Forty days later, there’s no evidence that Texans have paid a price...

Thanks to the trends in Texas and Mississippi, it’s no longer just right-wing commentators who are questioning the indefinite need for mask mandates. Over the weekend a writer at Slate wondered why people should still need to wear masks outdoors. Today at the Atlantic, Derek Thompson asked that same question in the context of mandates.

I wonder if that'll end the mask nazi bs?
4   Patrick   2021 Apr 20, 10:49am  

I doubt it will end the mask Nazi shit because:

1. Spreading fear through masks is very profitable to tech companies and gives more power to government.
2. Karens quivering in fear are desperate for some sense of control, and the masks give them that sense. Falsely, but they don't want to know the truth.

So big tech will continue to censor science and common sense, and people like Fraudulent Fauci will double-down again, this time demanding FOUR masks!

Never in history have so many people worn masks obstructing their intake of air. A
considerable amount of research has been done into mask wearing. The research shows
clearly that masks are ineffective in preventing the movement of infective organisms but that
they reduce oxygen levels and increase levels of carbon dioxide. Most of those advocating
mask wearing are either ignorant or are deliberately exposing mask wearers to danger. The
side effects of excess carbon dioxide (hypercapnia) are headaches, dizziness, drowsiness,
nausea, vomiting and a tight feeling in the chest. The risks are usually dismissed as irrelevant
or non-existent by government spokesmen and fact checkers (many of whom are sponsored
by industry) but I found it impossible to find reliable scientific evidence supporting this
reassurance. It should be noted that the BBC, which claims to produce fact checking material,
has financial links to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation (which itself has strong financial
links to the vaccine industry among others) and is in my view entirely untrustworthy. The
question, as always, is a simple one: who will check the ‘fact checkers’?
Government defenders regard the removal of a video from YouTube as a sign that the
advice in the video must have been ‘wrong’. The reality, of course, is the exact opposite since
YouTube takes down material which disagrees with advice from the World Health
Organization which is now heavily sponsored by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

Dr M Griesz-Brisson MD PhD is a leading European consultant neurologist and
neurophysiologist. In October 2020, she warned that rebreathing our exhaled air, because of
wearing masks, will create oxygen deficiency and an excess of carbon dioxide in the body.
‘We know,’ she said, ‘that the human brain is very sensitive to oxygen deprivation. There are
nerve cells in the hippocampus that cannot last longer than three minutes without oxygen.’ Dr
Griesz-Brisson pointed out that the acute warning symptoms of oxygen deprivation are
headaches, drowsiness, dizziness, difficulty in concentration and slowing down of reaction
times. The real danger is, however, that when the oxygen deprivation becomes chronic, the
symptoms disappear because the body gets used to them. However, efficiency remains
impaired and the damage to the brain continues. ‘We know that neurodegenerative disease
takes years to decades to develop. If today you forget your phone number, the breakdown in
your brain would have already started two or three decades ago.’
Dr Griesz-Brisson explains that while the mask wearer thinks that they are becoming
accustomed to re-breathing exhaled air, the problems within the brain are growing as the
oxygen deprivation continues.
She also points out that brain cells which die, because of a shortage of oxygen, will never
be replaced. They are gone for ever. She goes on to argue that everyone is entitled to claim
exemption from mask wearing because oxygen deprivation is so dangerous – and masks
don’t work.
Finally, Dr Griesz-Brisson points out that children and teenagers must never wear masks,
partly because they have extremely active and adaptive immune systems but also because
their brains are especially active and vulnerable. The more active an organ is the more
oxygen it needs. And so the damage to children’s brains is huge and irreversible.
She warns that dementia is going to increase in ten years, and the younger generation will
not be able to reach their potential because of the mask wearing.
Oxygen deprivation adversely affects the heart and the lungs but it also damages the brain.
And the damage will be permanent.
‘My conclusion has to be that no one has the right to force us to deprive our bodies of
oxygen for absolutely no good reason. Depriving individuals of oxygen is a crime perpetrated
by those demanding that we wear masks. Those who let it happen and those who collaborate
are also guilty. And those who wear masks in situations where they are not legally required
are cooperating in a criminal activity.’
Inevitably, Dr Griesz-Brisson’s interview was removed from YouTube as part of the
global suppression of medical information.

A paper entitled, Use of surgical face masks to reduce the incidence of the common cold
among health workers in Japan: a randomized clinical trial was published in the American
Journal of Infection Control in June 2009. The authors concluded that face mask use was
found not to be protective against the common cold when compared to controls who did not
wear face masks

Thousands of years ago, it was discovered that forcing people to wear masks covering much
of their faces broke their will and made them subservient. The masks depersonalised the
wearers and dehumanised them too.

If mask wearing were a science, the rules would be constant – but they are not. It is clear,
therefore, that there is no science behind mask wearing. Citizens are being forced to wear
masks for political reasons.

They are correct because the risk is so low that the distance doesn't matter, they just spin it as a negative. 80% if not over 90% of transmissions occur in household settings and among loved ones, 2% or so are restaurants. Not even worth thinking about it. Probably 3-6 ft minimum distance is not a bad idea though if you're worried. After that the returns diminish.

N95 respirators (or masks) are made with a 0.3 micron filter. Their name comes from the fact
that 95% of particles having a diameter of 0.3 microns are filtered by the mask.
Unfortunately, coronaviruses are approximately 0.125 microns in diameter. Still, these masks
will certainly prevent snowballs, flies and other objects getting through.

A report by Boris Borovoy, Colleen Huber and Maria Crisler reported: ‘Masks have been
shown through overwhelming clinical evidence to have no effect against transmission of viral
pathogens. Penetration of cloth masks by viral particles was almost 97% and of surgical
masks was 44%. Even bacteria, approximately ten times the volume of coronaviruses, have
been poorly impeded by both cloth masks and disposable surgical masks. After 150 minutes
of use, more bacteria were emitted through the disposable mask than from the same subject
unmasked. A paper by these authors entitled, Masks, false safety and real dangers, Part 2:
Microbial challenges from masks is available on the internet and contains a list of 62
scientific journal references showing that masks have no significant preventative impact
against any known pathogenic microbes. These authors conclude, ‘Specifically, regarding
covid-19, we have shown…that mask use is not correlated with lower death rates nor with
lower positive PCR tests.’ The authors add that, ‘Masks have also been demonstrated
historically to contribute to increased infections within the respiratory tract’ and they
conclude that ‘the use of face masks will contribute to far more morbidity and mortality than
has occurred due to covid-19.’
In their following paper entitled, Masks false safety and real dangers, Part 3: Hypoxia,
hypercapnia and physiological effects they state: ‘In our previous paper in this series, we
found a historical correlation with a hypercapnic practice, specifically mask-wearing, and a
severe surge of bacterial pneumonia deaths. This time period was mis-named the Spanish Flu,
due to a number of reasons, too extensive for this paper. Dr. Anthony Fauci’s research team
found that every cadaver exhumed form that time in 1918 – 1919 showed the cause of death
was bacterial pneumonia, secondary to typical upper respiratory bacteria.’ They also go on to
say: ‘Common and life-threatening diseases of impeded air flow included both obstructive
disorders such as asthma, COPD, bronchiectasis and emphysema, as well as restrictive
disorders, such as pneumothorax, atelectasis, respiratory distress syndrome and pulmonary
fibrosis.’

They still filter out CV just not at the 95% rate. They are certainly more useful temporarily than worthless cloth masks at all times. But yeah you have to put the on and take them off properly and they have to fit tight etc. etc. so returns are diminished.

Exactly. If there was scientific fact, I'd actually wear one and it likely would have been going on for decades by now. We've ridded ourselves of some pretty serious ailments in the last century. A mask working would have been part of that. Never has been. Logic? Whatever.

I was sitting outdoors at a cafe in Palo Alto with my wife today when it occurred to me that wearing a mask outdoors is simply a badge of political identity at this point, since there is literally zero scientific evidence that they have any beneficial effect.

But to not wear a mask when surrounded by obedient liberal sheeple is to proclaim a different political identity than the sheeple. This is uncomfortable for most people, who do not like to challenge the crowd, or to question their own political beliefs.

To take off the mask, even outdoors, requires courage which they simply do not have.

Or don't engage. Hard if you're solo, but if with other people just engage with the person you're with. Completely ignore the confrontational person. They're going to make an ass of themselves before you do if you ignore. It is kind of fun.

Doesn't always work, but at that point of continued engagement, then you just tell the person to fuck off and you'll call the cops on them. 98% of the time they have no clue if what they're fighting for is legal. Flip the script. It's a "guideline" in 9 out of 10 places as far as I know and not a law. They could get arrested for disturbing the peace.

Biden was the ONLY world leader with a mask and no flag at this virtual summit, because America is now a parody. The internet had some thoughts on this madness.

This is a virtual meeting with world leaders. They are literally thousands of miles apart.

Joe Biden is alone, with no one within his proximity.

Joe Biden has been vaccinated.

Joe Biden is the only one wearing a freaking mask

Oh, and just for kicks, Biden is the only one without his nation's flag behind him. I guess it's hard to sport Old Glory when you and your party think America is a racist, oppressive nation built on genocide.

This is 100% political theater, like everything else the inauthentic Left stages these days.

The rest of the photo also has some fun elements to consider. For example, Putin is sitting there wondering how in the heck the USSR lost to America considering what America has now become...

Emperor Xi is just sitting back, knowing he doesn't need to listen to this climate stuff because he's probably going to built a hundred new coal plants next year and staff them with Uyghur slaves...

Canada's Justin Trudeau is carefully reviewing which liberties to take away from his subjects next week...


Know when Kruschev decided to put missiles in Cuba? When he met Kennedy and came out of that meeting thinking he was soft. (Thank God he turned out to be wrong.)
This stuff actually matters. The world’s wolves are watching. And they like what they see.


This photo is like a tombstone for a once exceptional country.


Biden yesterday: "Science is back."
Biden today: Wears a mask on a Zoom call


After the election, my dad joked that Biden had just two mandates: Not to tweet and to wear a mask on TV.
My dad is right.

Believe it or not, Fauci is pretty dumb- but he’s not that dumb. The real reason he insists on keeping mask mandates in place for vaccinated people too is that he recognizes the minute some people can take off their masks, the whole system of panic-induced control starts to crumble.

That’s also why Fauci also won’t go on tv and tell everyone that masking outside is completely unnecessary. Even some of the libs are starting to admit this- slowly- because it’s so blaringly obvious. They can only parade so much stupidity in the name of “listening to science!.”

Fauci seems to be on tv every 5 minutes, so why won’t Fauci tell everyone the truth about outdoor masking?

Because he’s a coward, and he’s playing for Team Lockdown and Team Democrat before all else.

Wearing masks outside as a policy was always stupid, was never supported by actual infection data as a serious risk, and that libs think admitting this is some sort of concession now just shows how unhinged they’ve been all along.

But Fauci still won’t admit it. Nope.

The truth would set us free- and that’s exactly why Dr. Fauci won’t say it out loud.

Everyone has to mask up and bend the knee to Lord Fauci- or else more and more people will realize they don’t have to live on their knees anymore.

And they never should have.

The Southeast ADA Center, together with Syracuse University, released a disability issues brief titled, The ADA and Face Mask Policies, which contains the following examples of persons who might not be able to wear a face mask:

•Individuals with asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), or other respiratory disabilities may not be able to wear a face mask because of difficulty in or impaired breathing. The CDC also states that anyone who has trouble breathing should not wear a face mask.

•People with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), severe anxiety, or claustrophobia (an abnormal fear of being in enclosed or narrow places), may feel afraid or terrified when wearing a face mask. These individuals may not be able to stay calm or function when wearing a face mask.

•Some people with autism are sensitive to touch and texture. Covering the nose and mouth with fabric can cause sensory overload, feelings of panic, and extreme anxiety.

•A person who has cerebral palsy may have difficulty moving the small muscles in the hands, wrists, or fingers. Due to their limited mobility, they may not be able to tie the strings or put the elastic loops of a face mask over the ears. This means that the individual may not be able to put on or remove a face mask without assistance.

Shit, total tin foil hat, but maybe Fauci is the man behind the curtain? You control human health through non-violent means you can get them/anyone to do whatever you want under fear of death. Still confused why Trump didn't can his ass and all this was after the AIDS fiasco decades prior.
