131 Scientific Articles and Reasons to Refuse

Why I Refuse to Wear a Mask (And You Should Too)

Mask wearing is only a CDC recommendation, not a law.
https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prevent-getting-sick/cloth-face-cover.html

The CDC is a cesspool of liars.

The CDC has a top ten list of things people die from. The list is grossly incorrect, and neglects deaths from medical causes. https://revealingfraud.com/2019/08/health/cdcs-leading-causes-of-death-list-is-fraud/ This proves they are horrible liars, and grossly incompetent.

As further proof that the CDC lies, the CDC recently agreed to settle a lawsuit where the CDC was refusing an information request to provide studies upon which they based their claim “vaccines do not cause Autism”. They failed to provide any studies to show that the vast majority of vaccines do not cause Autism. They mostly only studied MMR, and the study they rely upon was shown to be fraud by a whistleblower. https://revealingfraud.com/2020/03/health/vaccines-may-indeed-cause-autism-cdc-fraud-exposed/

Believing the CDC, as per the above, can literally get you killed, in many ways. Mainly, you would grossly underestimate the deadliness of the medical establishment.

Mask wearing, can literally get you killed. It’s already killed several people who were running while wearing masks. Their lungs exploded, and they died. https://www.nydailynews.com/coronavirus/ny-coronavirus-two-chinese-boys-die-face-masks-gym-class-20200507-ruyinz7czjbqde3tprx647q3dm-story.html and https://nypost.com/2020/05/15/wuhan-man-suffers-collapsed-running-while-running-with-face-mask/

The CDC reason for wearing a mask is fraudulent, and based on an illegal false accusation, and/or slander and/or unproven science. The reason is “to protect others”. This fraudulently assumes and falsely accuses everyone is an asymptomatic carrier. This fraudulently assumes, and falsely accuses that asymptomatic carriers can spread the disease, even though there is no science to suggest that is true. (See point about false CDC claims on autism not backed by science above.) This also inverts the legal maxim, “innocent until proven guilty”. Where is the proof of asymptomatic transmission?

The World Health Organization has stated that “to date there has been no documented case of asymptomatic transmission”. As of April, 2020. https://www.who.int/docs/default-source/coronaviruse/situation-reports/20200402-sitrep-73-covid-19.pdf In case they change their form, it has been downloaded and uploaded here:
https://revealingfraud.com/2020/05/silver-gold/who-no-asymptomatic-transmission-april-2020/

This should be a far more than sufficient counter argument:

  1. Masks kill.
  2. And there is utterly no reason to wear one.

Anyone who is smart enough to evaluate two things at once, and compare risk vs. reward, can instantly see that wearing a mask is a very very bad idea.

There are many, many more reasons to avoid wearing a mask, but the above are so sufficient, the below need not be substantiated at this time.

  1. It used to be illegal to wear a mask in public, because it intimidates others, and criminals often wear masks to conceal their identity.
  2. It can reduce oxygen, and increase harmful CO2.
  3. It can cause you to have more respiratory distress.
  4. It can lead to more respiratory illnesses.
  5. It is uncomfortable, and causes harm to the wearer.
  6. It breeds bacteria, and is disgusting, and unhealthy.
  7. Compliance is a loss of freedom.
  8. Compliance is like setting the stage for the Biblical Mark of the Beast of Revelation 13.
  9. Allowing others to steal our rights, when there is no evidence, is absurd.
  10. Bowing down to arbitrary dictates is UnAmerican.
  11. It is antisocial.
  12. You can’t smile at people, nor see their smiles.
  13. It is not a crime to not wear a mask. Those who say it is, did not pass their laws through democratic processes, but through executive dictates that have already been struck down by the Supreme Courts of two states.
  14. The tests for COVID19, are themselves fraudulent, and have many problems. https://revealingfraud.com/2020/03/health/test-kits-do-not-work/
  15. There is no way to tell the difference between a false positive on a test, and an asymptomatic carrier; both are healthy people who test positive. If the test is wrong, then there are no asymptomatic carriers; they are all simply false positives. https://revealingfraud.com/2020/04/health/what-is-the-difference-between-a-false-positive-and-an-asymptomatic-carrier/
  16. Some people cannot wear masks for medical reasons, because they are so dangerous. (They kill through oxygen deprivation.) A small, but not totally exhaustive list, some of the things I’ve seen claimed would be: asthma, allergies, anemia, fungal infections, blood clotting disorders, diabetes, PTSD, autism, pre existing lung problems, “being a human”, and needing to meet basic OSHA air quality requirements of more then 19.5% oxygen, and less then 400 to 5000 parts per million CO2. And HIPPA law says people do not need to disclose their personal medical history such as “being human” to anyone.

Those were my initial 16 reasons. Below, in the comments, are 115 links compiled by others, most are links to scientific articles, showcasing the dangers of wearing masks, and their ineffectiveness.

  1. Its a fashion statement to wear a mask now, they have the designer ones out. Someone snuck up on me at work with a mask on and startled me, my reflex caused me to throw something at them, I thought it was an attacker for a split second… but yes this article, I cannot say it vehemently enough how ridiculous it is to wear a mask, it provides zero protection and causes harm, so you have to be triply brain dead to wear it.

  2. The whole thing seems fishy, it seems like it’s more of a control mechanism to destroy economy and liberties…NWO BS. We dont wear masks at work unless the individual wants to. The whole thing seems to be a ruse. High recovery rate without intervention and not worth destroying the economy.

  3. Ah, facebook says they want to block all information that conflicts with the CDC and WHO.

    https://www.mediapost.com/publications/article/348722/facebook-fights-covid-19-misinformation-promotes.html

    “The goal here is going to be to put authoritative information from organizations like the CDC and WHO in front of everyone who uses our services, as well as prominent links to the websites of those organizations,” he said”

    But what if they contradict each other?

    CDC says to wear face coverings in public. WHO says don’t bother. What’s going on?
    https://www.miamiherald.com/news/coronavirus/article241845881.html

  4. Its getting so corny out there over the masks and the Hoax, its the worst reality Ive never wanted to see. I truly try my best to check out of mainstream anything to avoid hearing about it… its dumb. I said on my fb page, that someone needs to build a statue of Covid so people can bow down and worship it… its a false idol. Germs, bacteria, risks have always been part of life on earth, now suddenly Government has become like a God and can keep you safe with its inadequate information on health? Praise God for Jesus Christ, its the only good thing we have going these days.

  5. You can shut it down with this. “As a WHO Health Professional, it is a proven fact, and has been for years, that masks are unreliable where viruses are concerned. Unless your wearing an N95 or above, they will not protect you from any disease and will only stop 11 to 18 percent of spreading your contaminants while your mask is dry. Once you start breathing through the cotton fabric, the moisture collected begins the degradation process. After roughly 20 minutes, the mask is rendered worthless. Wearing a mask in the US is viewed as “window dressing;” masks are worn to help others feel secure in an environment where there simply is none, or very little. While in a well ventilated store, nCoV droplets can be carried well beyond 6 feet. It has been proven scientifically, that airborne droplets can be carried from one end of the store to another. Unless the disease is irradicated, the US will need to learn how to live with this, and many others coming our way. The Kawasaki Syndrome is going to get a lot worse because nCoV has now become prevalent here. Unlike Influenza A and B, Covid, similar to H5N1, has evolved to live in hotter climates.

    Once your mask has become wet from breathing, it becomes a magnet for droplets in the air to stick to it more. The more you walk and breath, in well ventilated areas, the more likely you are to have droplets stick to the wet area around your mouth. This makes the mask a collection point for contaminants. nCoV, may stay dormant in the body for long periods. Certain antigens trigger the immune response thereby causing some people to show positive and then negative again. For many people, resistance may be high because of their autoimmune response
    Whereas others may be simply receptive becuase they let their resistance get depleted. H5N1 reacts the same way with certain animals, as well as, humans.”
    Retired, 1991 to 2014, Classified Level IV disease first response health professional (87 countries, over 200 deployments). I cannot verify, other than Margaret Chan (Director General 1996-2017), our boss who could; however probably wouldn’t. My team’s classification was beyond “Top Secret.” My knowledge, and experience as a nurse, in the world of disease first response surpasses many of CDC, HHS, and US Army first response. There were 15 members on my team. However, I was the Deputy, and later, the Incident Commander for the US H5N1 outbreak (2015), in Minnesota, Nebraska, Iowa and Louisiana, which can be verfied by the USDA, and Witt O’Brien.

  6. The meaning of wearing a mask. It appears to have ancient and deep roots into the demonic.

    https://www.britannica.com/art/mask-face-covering/The-wearing-of-masks

    “The wearing of masks
    The person who wears the mask is also considered to be in direct association with the mask’s spirit force and is consequently exposed to like personal danger of being affected by it. For the sake of protection, the wearer, like the mask maker, is required to follow certain sanctioned procedures in using the mask. In some respects he plays the role of an actor in cooperation or collaboration with the mask. Without the dance and posturing routines that the mask wearer performs, often to the accompaniment of music, the mask would remain a representation without a full life-force. The real drama and power of its form is the important contribution of the wearer. Covered by the mask and costume, the performer loses his previous identity and assumes a new one. Upon donning the mask, the wearer sometimes undergoes a psychic change and as in a trance assumes the spirit character depicted by the mask. Usually, however, the wearer skillfully becomes a “partner” of the character he is impersonating, giving to the mask not only an important spark of vitality by the light flashing from his own eyes but also bringing it alive by his movements and poses. But often the wearer seems to become psychologically one with the character he is helping to create. He seems to become an automaton, without his own will, which has become subservient to that of the personage of the mask. At all times there remains some important, even if sub rosa, association between the mask and its wearer.”

  7. How would wearing a mask, somehow increase the accuracy of the fraudulent COVID19 test kits with that 80% false positive rate?

    How would wearing a mask, somehow make ventilators work better, that kill 88% of the people put on them?

    How would wearing a mask, prevent the censorship of actual cures that work?

    How would wearing a mask, prevent the overdiagnosis of COVID19 by doctors to get more money from the government?

    How would wearing a mask, prevent a coroner from fraudulently adding COVID19 to death certificates?

    How would wearing a mask, prevent those five major kinds of COVID19 fraud, which all act to fraudulently increase the low threat from COVID19?

    How would wearing a mask “protect others” when, in fact, wearing a mask would reinforce the frauds above?

    How would wearing a mask “protect others” when, in fact, the mask is like trying to stop a mosquito with a chain link fence, that the virus can fly right through?

  8. Yeah demonic symbolism and ritual. It’s a dark time in history. I want to be hopeful for the future, but heaven is looking really good compared to this faux reality. Seems like darkness has invaded the scene and its going to be hard for Gods people for a while. We haven’t begun to get a taste of the results of the economic collapse yet. We must hold on tight to the Lord to see us through.

    Why masks are harmful.

    My neighbor is 6’3″ and total muscles, strong as an ox.

    He was forced to wear a mask in Lowe’s and he ended up passing out because he couldn’t breathe, and fell and hit his head on something.

    He was unconscious for a while and they called the cops.

    The black eye showed up the second day.

    And you think masks actually protect people?

  10. I’m a retired healthcare professional and I have been exposed to much worse than coronavirus. There is so much conflicting information that it is becoming increasingly more difficult to make an informed decision that is based on science and not politically driven. Masks block particles down to 3 microns. Coronavirus is 0.06 to 0.14 microns. Using a mask to prevent exposure to a virus such as SARS-CoV-2 is akin to erecting a chain-link fence to keep out mice. There is no relevant evidence to support the use of masking to prevent transmission or infection. If you feel the need for a protective barrier, why not consider a transparent face shield? It will protect you from water droplets as well as others from yours, unless they defy gravity. There is a list of unknowns regarding potential harm from a broad public policy to masking: Do used and loaded masks become sources of enhanced transmission? Do masks become collectors and retainers of pathogens that the mask wearer would otherwise avoid when breathing without a mask? Are large droplets captured by a mask atomized or aerosolized into breathable components? Can virions escape an evaporating droplet stuck to a mask fiber? What are the dangers of bacterial growth on a used and loaded mask? How do pathogen-laden droplets interact with environmental dust and aerosols captured on the mask? What are long-term health effects arising from impeded breathing? Are there negative social consequences to a masked society? Are there negative psychological consequences to wearing a mask, as a fear-based behavioural modification? What are the environmental consequences of mask manufacturing and disposal? Do the masks shed fibers or substances that are harmful when inhaled? Please do some additional research or your own to make an informed decision. https://www.technocracy.news/blaylock-face-masks-pose-serious-risks-to-the-healthy/

  12. It is, admittedly, 100% pointless to wear a mask if you are well, because the entire point is “to protect others”.

    But “to protect others” makes even less sense, because wearing a mask restricts your own oxygen, increases your own carbon dioxide, which would make the COVID even worse, and just help the COVID kill you faster, and make you even more infectious.

    Masks are worse than pointless, they are a mark of conformity and stupidity.

  13. You once put together a protocol for Emily, she needs that again. I’ll gladly provide a donation, I remember it was mega mag, silica, amino acids, cant remember 3-4 more items. Insomnia, night terrors, general malaise, residual of lyme…thank you.

    1. mega mag, silica, amino acids, cant remember 3-4 more items. Insomnia, night terrors, general malaise, residual of lyme…thank you.

      Keep taking mega magnesium, and get the amino acids from more protein. Even hot dogs work! Eggs. Sausage. Bacon. Tuna. Anything tasty that she will eat.

      For insomnia, zinc at night, 30-50mg right as you lay down to sleep.
      For general malaise, B complex, 1 pill, up to 5 times a day. Get “doctor’s best” brand, or look for “methylated” B vitamins.
      For being tired, take copper in the morning, 1 x 3mg pill x 3 times a day.
      For Lyme, iodine and colloidal silver; together they will kill it.

  14. ***MASK WEARERS take notice***
    Shared from Jason Grieve

    “So I did a test today that I am quite confident has never been done, relative to the mask guidelines.

    So in order to live healthy we must breathe the correct atmospheric oxygen which is 19.5% -23.5% of the air must be O2. OHSA requires a confined space environment to maintain this atmosphere or you must remove yourself from that environment immediately. So we breathe in that O2 in two places mouth and nose, both of which are confined to the mask.

    My hypothesis was that the atmosphere inside of the mask was not meeting the lower 19.5% atmospheric oxygen levels making the mask immediately dangerous to life and health (IDLH).

    The test:

    I took an industrial MSA air gas monitor and tested 3 face coverings. I wore each mask covering appropriately and inserted the gas monitor wand inside the mask. The results of the atmospheric oxygen levels are as follows: (remember under 19.5% is IDLH)

    Double layer hanker chief – 17.5%
    Half face respirator with 2 valves and particulate filters – 18.0%
    N95 with single valve – 18.0%

    Conclusion – these face coverings that are being recommended are depleting the oxygen to your brain and is immediately dangerous to life and health. The reason: gas exchange isn’t happening fast enough inside the mask and you are breathing too much expended CO2.”

  15. Mask wearing drop 👇🏼

    “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.”

    From the WHO: There is limited evidence that wearing a medical mask by healthy individuals in the households or among contacts of a sick patient, or among attendees of mass gatherings may be beneficial as a preventive measure.14-23 However, there is currently no evidence that wearing a mask (whether medical or other types) by healthy persons in the wider community setting, including universal community masking, can prevent them from infection with respiratory viruses, including COVID-19.

    Masks-

    Prolonged wearing of the surgical mask causes loss of intellect potential and cognitive performance due to a decrease in blood oxygen and subsequent brain hypoxia. Note – some changes may be irreversible.

    Results
    The rates of all infection outcomes were highest in the cloth mask arm, with the rate of ILI statistically significantly higher in the cloth mask arm (relative risk (RR)=13.00, 95% CI 1.69 to 100.07) compared with the medical mask arm. Cloth masks also had significantly higher rates of ILI compared with the control arm. An analysis by mask use showed ILI (RR=6.64, 95% CI 1.45 to 28.65) and laboratory-confirmed virus (RR=1.72, 95% CI 1.01 to 2.94) were significantly higher in the cloth masks group compared with the medical masks group. Penetration of cloth masks by particles was almost 97% and medical masks 44%.

    Conclusions
    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.

    The reasons why wearing a mask for a considerable amount of time and isolating yourself actually drops you immunity.
    Hypercapnia is excess carbon dioxide (CO2) build-up in your body. This can happen from wearing a mask for extended amounts of time.
    What’s a symptom of Hypercapnia? An inability to concentrate or think clearly.
    What’s the third leading cause of death in the US? It’s medical errors.
    Who wears a mask for long periods of time?
    The use of cloth masks by healthcare workers may actually put them at increased risk of respiratory illness and viral infections and their global use should be discouraged, according to a UNSW study.

    Most of our communications are non-verbal. Wearing a mask hides our full compliment of expressions. We need to understand how harmful this is to us all on such a deep level.

    We need to breathe fresh air. With a mask on, we inhale way more carbon dioxide, leading to a host of problems, even serious or life threatening. While wearing a mask, we are not breathing fresh oxygen and are re-breathing carbon dioxide!

    Masks are another control mechanism meant to silence us! Masks are a clear symbol of being subservient to agendas which do NOT have our good health in mind! The wearing of masks has, in fact, been orchestrated by those who have monetized our suffering. Please consider these points.

  18. aaand masks still don’t work

    Review of the Medical Literature
    Here are key anchor points to the extensive scientific literature that establishes that wearing surgical masks and respirators (e.g., “N95”) does not reduce the risk of contracting a verified illness:

    Jacobs, J. L. et al. (2009) “Use of surgical face masks to reduce the incidence of the common cold among health care workers in Japan: A randomized controlled trial,” American Journal of Infection Control, Volume 37, Issue 5, 417 – 419. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19216002

    N95-masked health-care workers (HCW) were significantly more likely to experience headaches. Face mask use in HCW was not demonstrated to provide benefit in terms of cold symptoms or getting colds.

    Cowling, B. et al. (2010) “Face masks to prevent transmission of influenza virus: A systematic review,” Epidemiology and Infection, 138(4), 449-456. https://www.cambridge.org/core/journals/epidemiology-and-infection/article/face-masks-to-prevent-transmission-of-influenza-virus-a-systematic- review/64D368496EBDE0AFCC6639CCC9D8BC05

    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. https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/epdf/10.1111/j.1750-2659.2011.00307.x

    “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 https://www.cmaj.ca/content/188/8/567

    “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.”

    Offeddu, V. et al. (2017) “Effectiveness of Masks and Respirators Against Respiratory Infections in Healthcare Workers: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis,” Clinical Infectious Diseases, Volume 65, Issue 11, 1 December 2017, Pages 1934–1942, https://academic.oup.com/cid/article/65/11/1934/4068747

    “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”; as per Fig. 2c therein:

    Radonovich, L.J. et al. (2019) “N95 Respirators vs Medical Masks for Preventing Influenza Among Health Care Personnel: A Randomized Clinical Trial,” JAMA. 2019; 322(9): 824–833. https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jama/fullarticle/2749214

    “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. https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/epdf/10.1111/jebm.12381

    “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.”

    Conclusion Regarding That Masks Do Not Work
    No RCT study with verified outcome shows a benefit for HCW or community members in households to wearing a mask or respirator. There is no such study. There are no exceptions.

    Likewise, no study exists that shows a benefit from a broad policy to wear masks in public (more on this below).

    Furthermore, if there were any benefit to wearing a mask, because of the blocking power against droplets and aerosol particles, then there should be more benefit from wearing a respirator (N95) compared to a surgical mask, yet several large meta-analyses, and all the RCT, prove that there is no such relative benefit.

    Masks and respirators do not work.

    According to the New England Journal of Medicine..

    “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”

    Many potential harms may arise from broad public policies to wear masks, and the following unanswered questions arise:
    • Do used and loaded masks become sources of enhanced transmission, for the wearer and others?
    • Do masks become collectors and retainers of pathogens that the mask wearer would otherwise avoid when breathing without a mask?
    • Are large droplets captured by a mask atomized or aerosolized into breathable components? Can virions escape an evaporating droplet stuck to a mask fiber?
    • What are the dangers of bacterial growth on a used and loaded mask?
    • How do pathogen-laden droplets interact with environmental dust and aerosols captured on the mask?
    • What are long-term health effects on HCW, such as headaches, arising from impeded breathing?
    • Are there negative social consequences to a masked society?
    • Are there negative psychological consequences of wearing a mask, as a fear-based behavioral modification?
    • What are the environmental consequences of mask manufacturing and disposal?
    • Do the masks shed fibers or substances that are harmful when inhaled?
