Surgical masks were used as torture tools at the notorious Guantanamo Bay detention camp in Cuba.

40 years of research showing mask ineffectiveness, harm to humans

The evidence is crystal clear: masks cannot and do not prevent the spread of communicable diseases and are essentially petri dishes that grow fungi and bacteria that you are breathing in all day while wearing said masks. Not to mention, masks are produced in squalid, unsanitary conditions around the world.

Surgeons have long debated whether wearing masks was beneficial to them and their patients. The consensus is that masks are unnecessary and probably do more harm than good.

RELATED: Mask Mouth – extended mask wearing leads to gum disease, tooth decay (August 5, 2020)

COVID czar Dr. Anthony Fauci said in a March 8, 2020 interview on “60 Minutes” interview that “nobody should be wearing masks.”

He was right, based on well-established research from the medical industry. This list will expand. But here is the well-established science regarding masks, with the name of the scientific journals as headings.

Annals of the Royal College of Surgeons of England (1981)

The study by Dr. Neil WM Orr states at the very beginning, “No masks were worn in one operating theater for six months. There was no increase in the incidence of wound infection.”

The study continues, “It would appear that minimum contamination can best be achieved by not wearing a mask at all” and that wearing a mask during surgery “is a standard procedure that could be abandoned. The conclusion is that the wearing of a mask has very little relevance to the well-being of patients undergoing routine general surgery and it is a standard practice that could be abandoned.” Read the full study here.

World Journal of Surgery (1991)

The abstract of this study by Dr. Th. Göran Tunevall says it all: “It has never been shown that wearing surgical face masks decreases postoperative wound infections. On the contrary, a 50% decrease has been reported after omitting face masks. The present study was designed to reveal any 30% or greater difference in general surgery wound infection rates by using face masks or not.”

The study concludes, “These results indicate that the use of face masks might be reconsidered. Masks may be used to protect the operating team from drops of infected blood and from airborne infections, but have not been proven to protect the patient operated by a healthy operating team.” In other words, wearing masks in public do nothing to protect other people from you if you’re sick. Read the full study here.

Anaesthesia and Intensive Care Medicine (2001)

Dr. Marcus W. Skinner and Dr. Brett A. Sutton conducted a meta-analysis.  They searched the Medline database using the index terms “surgical mask,” “anaesthetist,” and “infection control.” All original studies published in peer-reviewed journals in the English language were reviewed, with no restrictions on year of publication. Thirty-seven (37) suitable journal articles were obtained, reporting on altogether 44 studies published between 1905 and 2000.

The study concluded, “There is little evidence to suggest that the wearing of surgical face masks by staff in the operating theatre decreases postoperative wound infections. Published evidence indicates that postoperative wound infection rates are not significantly different in unmasked versus masked theatre staff. However, there is evidence indicating a significant reduction in post-operative wound infection rates when theatre staff are unmasked.”

Finally, the study states, “A decision to eliminate masks would generate much discussion. The evidence for discontinuing the use of surgical face masks would appear to be stronger than the evidence available to support their continued use.” Read the full study here.

Neurocirugía – Official Journal of the Spanish Society of Neurosurgery (2008)

Beder et al. set out to show “whether the surgeons’ oxygen saturation of hemoglobin was affected by the surgical mask or not during major operations.” Repeated measures, longitudinal and prospective observational studies were performed on 53 surgeons using a pulse oximeter pre and postoperatively.

The study revealed a decrease in the oxygen saturation of arterial pulsations (SpO2) and a slight increase in pulse rates compared to preoperative values in all surgeon groups. The decrease was more prominent in the surgeons aged over 35. Pulse rates of the surgeons increase and SpO2 decrease after the first hour. This early change in SpO2 may be either due to the facial mask or the operational stress. 

In other words, wearing masks probably decreases your blood oxygen levels after only one hour, and increases pulse rates. Imagine what is happening after 8+ hours wearing masks. Read the full study: Postoperative wound infections and surgical face masks: A controlled study.

Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine (2015)

Examination of the literature revealed much of the published work on the matter to be quite dated and often studies had poorly elucidated methodologies. As a result, we recommend caution in extrapolating their findings to contemporary surgical practice. However, overall there is a lack of substantial evidence to support claims that facemasks protect either patient or surgeon from infectious contamination. More rigorous contemporary research is needed to make a definitive comment on the effectiveness of surgical facemasks.

In the medical field where common practice can so easily become dogma, it is necessary to recognise the constant need to maintain a healthy skepticism towards established beliefs and to periodically re-evaluate and critically assess their scientific merit. Read the full study here.

BMC Infectious Disease (2019)

Note: BMC Infectious Diseases is an open access, peer-reviewed journal that considers articles on all aspects of the prevention, diagnosis and management of infectious and sexually transmitted diseases in humans, as well as related molecular genetics, pathophysiology, and epidemiology.

“Medical masks are commonly used in health care settings to protect healthcare workers (HCWs) from respiratory and other infections. Airborne respiratory pathogens may settle on the surface of used masks layers, resulting in contamination. The main aim of this study was to study the presence of viruses on the surface of medical masks.”

Conclusion: Respiratory pathogens on the outer surface of the used medical masks may result in self-contamination. The risk is higher with longer duration of mask use (> 6 h) and with higher rates of clinical contact. Protocols on duration of mask use should specify a maximum time of continuous use, and should consider guidance in high contact settings. Viruses were isolated from the upper sections of around 10% samples, but other sections of masks may also be contaminated. HCWs should be aware of these risks in order to protect themselves and people around them.”

Schwarz, Jenetzky, et al. (2020)

By 26.10.2020 the registry had been used by 20,353 people. In this publication we report the results from the parents, who entered data on a total of 25,930 children. The average wearing time of the mask was 270 minutes per day. Impairments caused by wearing the mask were reported by 68% of the parents. These included irritability (60%), headache (53%), difficulty concentrating (50%), less happiness (49%), reluctance to go to school/kindergarten (44%), malaise (42%) impaired learning (38%) and drowsiness or fatigue (37%).

They felt good after killing so many people. No different than using profanity and sexual pleasure. It just sends those good feelings up and down the body. Thus the need for Self Control

I am a mask expert. I’ve designed, built, tested, mass produced, and used masks for over 40 years. They are useful and partially effective for what they are intended for. They do NOT work against viruses in general. N95 and higher have some effect- cloth and surgical masks don’t even stop dust and smoke. I have permanent lung damage from fighting wildfires as a young man in a cloth mask.
Everyone who has ever actually used a mask knows what they are good for and why you NEVER wear them any longer than necessary. I’ve had bronchitis, pneumonia, and skin infections from wearing masks but it was worth it to not breathe the toxic chemicals and dusts I was working with.
Simply put- MASKS DO NOT STOP VIRUSES.

Ernie finally someone who knows how masks work and over 40 years would classify you as an expert for sure. There is an Editor at Cairnsnews has a blog titled 20-medical-reasons-face-masks-are-dangerous-and-dont-work, maybe can state in the comments their as have done here. There are more and more people seeing the real truth about Covid 19

So, I was a Marine for 22 Years. We all were Trained in NBC Defense, myself a bit more than most actually! One thing to always consider is that the SIZE of the virus, as compared to the Object that the Mask can actually protect you from! Eloquently put here, as well, I can Unaoccquiviacally Recommend that Masks are simply a “Placebo” only ,and may actually make matters worse! Double them up, get twice the ineffectiveness actually! The falsehoods galore that are disseminated by your Government “Experts” and Massive Media Hype, are harming us all! Do the research, the ONLY way is a disposable full body suit and Positive Filtered Air supply or Air/Oxygen from a tank! And if indoors, to have a Negative Air flow to the Outside, included in that mix! Anything else is worthless, fully!

Just like hospitals are supposed to have negative pressure rooms for patients infected with exotic viruses or exotic bacteria.

Mask Exempt

The mask is an attack on humanity, the only reason it’s still enforced after all the evidence about how it does nothing is because it’s meant to dehumanize us. We are all legally exempt from wearing the suffocation device. The mask wearing drones only wear it to signal their allegiance to being dominated and controlled.

Masks do work … to jack-up the “terror factor”. What better way to get people to line up and eagerly become guinea pigs …?
Most amazingly of all: for NO health benefit, whatsoever.

I have read somewhere that the CDC has now stated that Masks have only slowed the spread by 1.32% this would explain it that cases were still growing before Covid 19 Vaccines or really should be Synthetic Genetic injections is slowing the numbers right down just now the deaths are climbing. It is due to the Severe Adverse Reactions that is leading people to their deaths.

They pulled that stat out of their behinds. There has never been a study that came up with that 1.32%, esp when no one has isolated the virus nor proven causation!

Can people be so stupid about masks? If you can smell a person’s bad breath when that person is wearing a mask… and you CAN… don’t people think that any virus or bacteria that person has is also coming through???

I live in a country where not wearing a mask can lead to a fine and jail term. Plus even expulsion for myself as I am a Resident. So, I cheat by pushing the metal nose piece to form a gap. And I keep wearing old masks that are loose…so I can breathe better.

It is a trade-off. I can handle my own microbes but will not accept an invasion of my blood system by vaccines.

I reduce my excursions outside the house to shops, malls, etc. So, no need to wear masks as I am home most of the time.

The world is now insane….masks, vaccines, lockdowns. No choice unless you are prepared for the long haul and losing the fight. So, stay smart, find small ways to cheat the system and also self-protect but staying away from crowded places.

Damn Eddie…a fine AND a jail term? That’s nuts but at the same time, it shows just had bad some places are. I’d like to ask you where you live but that may be a risk for you to post openly without some sort of VPN to cover you.

I can relate and feel with you Eddie! I live in a European country. We’ve been under a mask mandate since early fall 2020 (and before in spring and early summer 2020). Then in the end of January 2021, the government changed the mask mandate to require the wearing of KN95 masks, which restrict your breathing even more than the surgical and fabric ones. In some states they mandate them even outside in certain areas. In my state they’re required for all indoor places except for your own home. And recently have chronic migraines, and the accumulation of CO2 and oxygen starvation causes so much more pain for me.

To make it even worse, apparently the gov said that the mandate will stay in effect all summer and all coming winter, but that “we can talk about scrapping the mandate for outside areas… MAYBE”. So I guess they want to keep them forever. They’re not even downgrading them to the lighter surgical ones.

Something else is weird. I have problems with sensitive skin and react to all sorts of things, especially my face. And these KN95 masks cause dermatitis on my face within a day, right where the mask touched my face. Even if it was only worn for like half an hour. Who knows what chemical poison is in these things.

To make it even more frustrating is that no doctor dares to write an exemption for you. Doctors are monitored very closely by the gov and punished, including dragged through the propaganda media with lies if they are unlucky. I never see anyone without a mask inside anywhere and there are bound to be many who would need an exemption for health issues much worse than mine. It’s laughable to read about the possibility for mask exemptions on the gov website, where they list illnesses as examples which could qualify for an exemption, which a doctor needs to issue for you. In reality, no body seems to get an exemption. I’m horrified thinking of our hot humid summer coming and having to wear that crap. And the mask issue is only one of countless other dystopian issues we have, like so many other countries. It’s horrible.

Corrupt bureaucrat & dwarf puppet in the service of his eugenicist, NWO globalist cabal…I.E. Rockefellers, Rothschilds, Bilderbergs & their frontmen & tools: big pharma, big tech, corporate media, Hollywood, cia, fbi, Bill Gates, Klaus Schwab, George Soros, etc. Those unseen(often in relatively recent secret societies like the freemasons, illuminati, Knights Templar & The Club of Rome) & possessing obscene wealth have been engineering humanity for not just centuries, but millennia.
Masks are absolute BS…but this is well known to the unseen prime movers of this global plan of deceit. The masks DO, however, provide the desired psychological effects…”SUBMISSION” or “SURRENDER” to “the state” or an “authority” that knows more than us & is working for our BEST INTEREST. They separate us from INDIVIDUAL LIBERTY. Masks also are effective at unconsciously making us feel like we may be “infected”…they’re implementation is DESIGNED to keep us from gathering. It is manipulation through FEAR, SHAME &/or GUILT.
WE MUST RESIST AT ALL COSTS. OUR FREEDOM & DIGNITY ARE TRULY AT STAKE.

Masks are occult symbolism for submission to those you attest to serve. I have sent indisputable information to local governments but they merely ignore and intimidate anyone who will not comply.
