(Tea Party 247) – Leftists have become zealous facemask supporters since the outbreak of the coronavirus in the US and Democrat leaders made them the hot accessory of the year. Not only are facemasks going to save us all from the coronavirus, according to the left, they also come equipped with fashionable righteous indignation and moral superiority.
If you attempt to use your brain to think for yourself and do even just a minimal amount of research, you’ll find out that facemasks really don’t provide the level of protection leftists assert they do. There is no scientific or medical evidence to support facemasks being forced on all of us yet residents of some states are being turned away from stores for not conforming.
Residents in some states are being forced to wear masks in order to buy groceries or other essential items thanks to stores complying with illegal government orders that everyone must wear one. If facemasks are the solution to slowing the spread of the virus, why are so many states still oppressing residents with draconian lockdown orders if we can all just wear facemasks? It’s utter lunacy.
Should you attempt to take to social media to sound the alarm on the ineffectiveness of facemasks and the absurdity of being forced to wear one, you will be immediately descended upon by lock-step leftists armed with their faux morality cards who will insist you are a selfish, horrible person with zero regard for human life (despite them likely being “pro-abortion) and that you must want people to die.
It doesn’t seem to matter how much conflicting information is out there in regards to facemasks. Liberals have made this their hill to die on.
Now, there’s even more medical testimony against the use of facemasks for healthy people. Neurosurgeon, Dr. Russell Blaylock, has written an editorial in which he asserts that “masks pose serious risks to the healthy.”
Since the left touts themselves as being “pro-science” perhaps they might be interested in Dr. Blaylock’s assertion that there is no scientific evidence to suggest that facemasks are effective against the transmission of COVID-19. If only they’d dig their heads up from the sands of faux moral outrage they might actually learn something.
Blaylock says in his editorial for Technocracy:
As for the scientific support for the use of face mask, a recent careful examination of the literature, in which 17 of the best studies were analyzed, concluded that, “None of the studies established a conclusive relationship between mask/respirator use and protection against influenza infection.” Keep in mind, no studies have been done to demonstrate that either a cloth mask or the N95 mask has any effect on transmission of the COVID-19 virus. Any recommendations, therefore, have to be based on studies of influenza virus transmission. And, as you have seen, there is no conclusive evidence of their efficiency in controlling flu virus transmission.
It is also instructive to know that until recently, the CDC did not recommend wearing a face mask or covering of any kind, unless a person was known to be infected, that is, until recently. Non-infected people need not wear a mask. When a person has TB we have them wear a mask, not the entire community of non-infected. The recommendations by the CDC and the WHO are not based on any studies of this virus and have never been used to contain any other virus pandemic or epidemic in history.
Now that we’ve established the sheer nonsense of the facemask, this is what Blaylock says will happen to those who wear them:
Now that we have established that there is no scientific evidence necessitating the wearing of a face mask for prevention, are there dangers to wearing a face mask, especially for long periods? Several studies have indeed found significant problems with wearing such a mask. This can vary from headaches, to increased airway resistance, carbon dioxide accumulation, to hypoxia, all the way to serious life-threatening complications.
Liberals lack actual evidence to support wearing facemasks whereas Blaylock provides real studies to back up his claims:
In one such study, researchers surveyed 212 healthcare workers (47 males and 165 females) asking about presence of headaches with N95 mask use, duration of the headaches, type of headaches and if the person had preexisting headaches.
They found that about a third of the workers developed headaches with use of the mask, most had preexisting headaches that were worsened by the mask wearing, and 60% required pain medications for relief. As to the cause of the headaches, while straps and pressure from the mask could be causative, the bulk of the evidence points toward hypoxia and/or hypercapnia as the cause. That is, a reduction in blood oxygenation (hypoxia) or an elevation in blood C02 (hypercapnia). It is known that the N95 mask, if worn for hours, can reduce blood oxygenation as much as 20%, which 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.
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. Some had pre-existing headaches that were precipitated by the masks. All felt like the headaches affected their work performance.
Blaylock says studies have also shown that face masks impair oxygen intake dramatically, potentially leading to serious problems:
Studies have shown that hypoxia can inhibit the type of main immune cells used to fight viral infections called the CD4+ T-lymphocyte. This occurs because the hypoxia increases the level of a compound called hypoxia inducible factor-1 (HIF-1), which inhibits T-lymphocytes and stimulates a powerful immune inhibitor cell called the Tregs. . 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.
In other words, if you wear a face mask and end up contracting some sickness, chances are you will not be able to effectively fight it off as you could if you had normal blood oxygen levels. In layman’s terms: the mask could make you sicker. It could also create a “deadly cytokine storm” in some:
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.
That’s not it. According to Blaylock facemasks could make conditions such as stroke, heart attacks and cancer worse:
People with cancer, especially if the cancer has spread, will be at a further risk from prolonged hypoxia as the cancer grows best in a microenvironment that is low in oxygen. Low oxygen also promotes inflammation which can promote the growth, invasion and spread of cancers. Repeated episodes of hypoxia has been proposed as a significant factor in atherosclerosis and hence increases all cardiovascular (heart attacks) and cerebrovascular (strokes) diseases.
Shockingly, that’s not even the worst of it. How would you like to have COVID-19 in your brain?
It gets even more frightening. Newer evidence suggests that in some cases the virus can enter the brain. 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.
It’s time for liberals to wake up and stop listening only to people that support their own agendas and pre-conceived notions. Dr. Blaylock is a doctor just the same as Dr. Fauci yet Dr. Facui seems to be the only medical authority qualified to speak on matters concerning national health safety.
Share this information far and wide. It may help a liberal near you.
