A recent Stanford study released by the NCBI, which is under the National Institutes of Health, showed that masks do “Absolutely Nothing” to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 and their use is even harmful.

NIH published a medical article by Dr. Baruch Vainshelboim (Cardiology Division, Veterans Affairs Palo Alto Health Care System / Stanford University, Palo Alto, CA, United States). It was a peer-reviewed study done by Stanford University that demonstrates beyond a reasonable doubt that “facemasks have absolutely zero chance” of preventing the spread of COVID-19. It was posted on the National Center of Biotechnological Information government website. The NCBI is a branch of the National Institute for Health. So, one would think such a study would be widely reported by mainstream media and embraced by the “Science-Loving” folks in Big Tech. Instead, Big Tech tyrants will suspend people who post it, as political strategist Steve Cortes learned the hard way when he posted a Tweet that went against the facemask narrative. The Tweet itself featured a quote and a link that prompted Twitter to suspend Cortes’ account indefinitely.

And then there’s Lord Fauci…the CZAR of ALL SCIENCE, who has been dead wrong more times than you can count. His back-and-forth messages have been nothing but reckless, selfish, and politically motivated. Fauci set everything in motion since the very beginning of this pandemic…NO facemasks needed, NO social distancing needed, NO travel restrictions needed, on and on…denying he ever said any of this. There is overwhelming evidence / video that he did. Fauci changed his tune when he aligned himself with the Radical Far Left, social media and all the news networks for fame, fortune, and power. He’s been pumping false information and more fear into the System since anointed to his “refortified” position in the Biden Administration, as with the W.H.O. and C.D.C.

Fauci and government are now fully committed in pushing the vaccine, an “experimental” vaccine into every single living being in the US, if not the world. And even with the second shot of this “experimental” vaccine that has been linked to multiples side effects such as blood clots, heart attacks, severe skin lesions, and death Fauci still pontificates that NOTHING is really different than it was before. You still need to social distance, wash your hands, and wear facemasks…BUT NOW TWO FACEMASKS “INDEFINITELY” (as Biden alluded just yesterday). Fauci adds that everyone fully vaccinated can still contract COVID and spread COVID, and that booster shots will be necessary. Why isn’t there transparency about the Truth that this is an “experimental” vaccine? That all the pharmaceutical companies are NOT liable for ANY fallout? Everyone must sign a waiver before receiving the vaccine. So ask yourself, WHY are THEY pushing this SO FAR…???  (To keep us ALL in FEAR so THEY can gain more power and control.)

Breathing Physiology

Breathing is the most important physiological functions to sustain life and health. The human body requires a continuous and adequate oxygen (O2) supply to all organs and cells for normal function and survival. Breathing is also an essential process for removing metabolic byproducts carbon dioxide (CO2).

Efficacy of facemasks

The physical properties of medical and non-medical facemasks suggest that facemasks are ineffective to block viral particles due to their difference in scale (the virus is 1000 times smaller), SARS-CoV-2 can easily pass through any facemask. In addition, the efficiency filtration rate of facemasks is poor, ranging from 0.7% in non-surgical, cotton-gauze woven mask to 26% in cotton material. With respect to surgical and N95 medical facemasks, the efficiency filtration rate falls to 15% and 58%, respectively when even small gap between the mask and the face exists. 

Clinical scientific evidence challenges the efficacy of facemasks to block human-to-human transmission and its infectious risks. 

Physiological effects of wearing facemasks

Wearing a facemask mechanically restricts breathing by increasing the resistance of air movement during both the inhalation and exhalation process. Hypoxia, a deficiency in the amount of oxygen reaching the tissues causes self-contamination, increase temperature and humidity in the space between the mouth and facemask. This results in a release of toxic particles from the mask’s materials. Rebreathing contaminated air with high bacterial and toxic particles concentrations along with low oxygen (O2) and carbon dioxide (CO2) challenges the body homeostasis, causing self-toxicity and immunosuppression. 

Psychologically, wearing a facemask fundamentally has negative effects on the wearer and the nearby person. Basic human-to-human connectivity through facial expressions is compromised and self-identity is somewhat eliminated. These dehumanizing movements partially delete the uniqueness and individuality of the person wearing the facemask as well as the nearby person. Social connections and relationships are basic human needs which innately are inherited in all people. Reduced human-to-human connections are associated with poor mental and physical health.

Encountering people wearing facemasks activates innate stress-fear emotion, which is fundamental to all humans in danger or life-threatening situations, such as death or unknown – unpredictable outcomes. 

Long-Term health consequences of wearing facemasks

Long-term practice of wearing facemasks has strong potential for devastating health consequences. A prolonged hypoxic-hypercapnic state compromises normal physiological and psychological balance, deteriorating health and promotes the developing and progression of existing chronic conditions.

With respect to mental health, global estimates showing that COVID-19 will cause a catastrophe due to collateral psychological damage such as quarantine, lockdowns, unemployment, economic collapse, social isolation, violence, depression, and suicides. Chronic stress along with hypoxic and hypercapnic conditions knocks the body out of balance, and can cause headaches, fatigue, stomach issues, muscle tension, mood disturbances, insomnia, and accelerated aging. This state suppressing the immune system to protect the body from viruses and bacteria, decreasing cognitive function, promoting the developing and exacerbating the major health issues including hypertension, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, cancer, Alzheimer disease, rising anxiety, and depression states, causes social isolation and loneliness and increasing the risk for prematurely mortality.

The existing scientific evidence challenges 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 the dangers of wearing facemasks. 

Governments, policy makers, scientists, and health organizations should utilize and support factual and true scientific evidence-based information with respect to wearing facemasks as preventive intervention for public health, and safety for ALL.
