As we have long noted, “Dumb Enough to Believe Bush’s Wars, Dumb Enough to Believe the COVID War.”

And “Dumb” they are. Wearing masks has become the new ABnormal.

Throughout the world, streets and stores are filled with masses wearing masks thinking it will keep them “healthy,” while, in fact, scientific evidence shows mask wearing can be dangerous.

Board-certified neurosurgeon Dr. Russell Blaylock, in reviewing 17 scientific studies, found evidence that wearing a face mask for an extended period of time has shown to cause serious health problems:

  • “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.”
  • “The importance of these findings is that the wearing of a mask for prolonged periods of time often causes a drop in oxygen levels (hypoxia) and is associated with an impairment in immunity. Studies have shown that hypoxia can inhibit the type of main immune cells used to fight viral infections called the CD4+ T-lymphocyte. The studies also found an elevation in blood CO2 can cause a health condition called hypercapnia [carbon dioxide toxicity].”
  • “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.”
  • “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.”

According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), in some cases, mask wearing could be deadly because inhaling high levels of carbon dioxide may be life-threatening. This can also can cause headaches, vertigo, double vision, inability to concentrate, tinnitus (a ringing or buzzing in the ears), seizures, or suffocation due to displacement of air.

“Wearing a face mask makes the exhaled air go into the eyes,” wrote Dr. Antonio Lazzarino, an epidemiologist at University College London, regarding the side effects of face masks. “This generates an uncomfortable feeling and an impulse to touch your eyes. If your hands are contaminated, you are infecting yourself.”

Dr. Lazzarino also said, “Face masks make breathing more difficult. For people with COPD – that’s chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, which causes a decreased airflow – face masks are in fact intolerable to wear as they worsen their breathlessness. Moreover, a fraction of carbon dioxide previously exhaled is inhaled at each respiratory cycle. Those two phenomena increase breathing frequency and deepness, and hence they increase the amount of inhaled and exhaled air.”

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), masks “should be routinely washed depending on the frequency of use,” and "Individuals should be careful not to touch their eyes, nose, and mouth when removing their face covering and wash hands immediately after removing,” … which is doubtful most people do.

Hong Kong’s Center for Health Protection says masks should only be worn by those suffering respiratory infection when visiting clinics or hospitals or when taking care of an infected patient.

Dr. Jenny Harries, Deputy Chief Medical Officer for England, has stated, “For the average member of the public walking down a street, it is not a good idea… What tends to happen is people will have one mask. They won’t wear it all the time, they will take it off when they get home, they will put it down on a surface they haven’t cleaned.”

And Dr. Eli Perencevich, a professor of medicine and epidemiology at the University of Iowa’s College of Medicine, told Forbes, “The average healthy person does not need to have a mask, and they shouldn’t be wearing masks. There’s no evidence that wearing masks on healthy people will protect them.”

As noted by other health professionals, but absent the junkstream news hysteria, Perencevich said, “They wear them incorrectly, and they can increase the risk of infection because they’re touching their face more often.”

On 21 May, an article published in the New England Journal of Medicine by doctors and medical experts from Harvard Medical School; the Division of Infectious Diseases at Massachusetts General Hospital; Harvard Pilgrim Health Care Institute; and Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, MA, stated:

“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.”

While the article concedes that wearing a mask makes many people feel safer, “One might argue that fear and anxiety are better countered with data and education than with a marginally beneficial mask.”

On 13 May, the State of California Department of Industrial Relations, Division of Occupational Safety & Health Publications Unit, published the following: “Cloth face covers are not protective equipment and do not protect the person wearing a cloth face cover from COVID-19.”

The truth remains there are still many medical authorities advocating the public be required to wear masks in public in order to prevent further spread of the coronavirus.

But as readers of the Trends Journal know from the many “Trend Forecasting Lessons” we have published over the years, one must carefully read the language used to determine the deeper truth. Health advocate Peggy Hall analyzed the language in the seven research articles posted on the CDC website, which it claims supports wearing face masks.

Ms. Hall first points out there are no links to the studies provided by the CDC. This raised her suspicion about the strength of the articles. When she found them online, not one clearly confirmed that wearing masks slows the spread, but, instead, they used language such as “more research is needed,” “requires further study,” “results are unclear” and “pre-symptomatic or asymptomatic transmission modes have not been definitely documented for COVID-19.”

Yet, despite no clear epidemiological evidence, as the media COVID Hysteria and political lockdowns accelerated, in early April, the CDC reversed its previous stance that only two groups of people needed to wear them: people who were showing symptoms and people who were taking care of someone who was sick.

    Thank God for sensible Americans like Peggy Hall willing to dig beneath the propaganda to reveal the truth. I think Gruesome Newsom made his mandatory mask order this week because Peggy got Orange County to stop requiring mask wearing after her appearance at the Board of Supervisors meeting where she challenged mask wearing. He couldn’t stand his power being usurped!

      I appreciate you citing Peggy’s name, as I have never heard of her, and looked her up. It’s always good to learn new identities of those who inspire others. There are too many to know them all. Thanks, Jay

      Lol. Peggy hall…the one in California? Blonde and brilliant dentures? This is great, I see why numbers are going back up. This is from her website regarding her training..”Trained as a spiritual lay counselor, Peggy specializes in emotional healing and soul care.” Ok nothing wrong with that, she actually uses some great techniques and promotes a healthy lifestyle that is important now more than ever. And she is in every right to promote her enthusiasm for healthy lifestyle. But the videos I reviewed, she was informing us on how to “fight back ” but she never stated her supporting documents or research. She definitely had a good career in emotional healing and soul care. She’s out of her league…but the has the right to catch whatever she wants. Good luck

    Staff in stores openly say they cannot breathe, and leave these masks around their neck until inspectors/cops/managers pass by and comment. They have to wear them 8 hours a day – they know what they are talking about. That number 17 again.

    Even if wearing a mask could inhibit or slow down transmission of a virus that’s all it would do. With a virus already spread throughout the population as much as this COVID, and the same for yearly flu epidemics, everyone will sooner or later be exposed to the virus. What matters most, and in every case, for every person, no exception, is if the immunological system is up to snuff. That is, are you healthy enough that your immunological system can successfully overcome the virus. Nutrition with vitamins, minerals and Interferon are the best defenses against catching it, or beating it if you do get infected. Homeopathic nosodes can establish an immune response the same as a vaccination. Having toxins contained in the vaccine injected directly into your blood stream is much more dangerous than being exposed to this COVID virus, which is much less deadly than the seasonal flu. Money would be better spend on widespread nutrition rather than developing a vaccine, IMO.

    I knew it! This is why I keep my nose outside of my mask and breathe oxygen in with my nose and never use my mouth. The irony is that those who comply with the Governor’s orders in any given state will incur lung damage from breathing in CO2 over long periods of time. If there’s a second wave of COVID-19, then all of those people who followed Governor Cuomo’s orders will most likely catch the virus and could suffer considerably. Meanwhile anyone who did what I did won’t have to worry because our lungs are healthy.

    Many Californians are observed wearing their masks solo while walking outdoors in the neighborhood, driving solo, or while going about their business. Its now a permanent part of their individual makeup or dress (code).

    Texas Gov. Abbot said the other day ” the increase in Covid-19 cases in Houston must be addressed, we need to corral it”. Somehow, Gov. Abbot thinks he is going to “round-up” infected people and herd them into a corral like cattle. Then what? A 14-day mandatory quarantine? What has this world come to?

    • rodolfogonzalez 1 month ago

      Reply from the city of Houston. Calm down, no need to satisfy your morbid fantasy for a “round up”. Our governor, G. ABBOTT, has been addressing this on going obstacle for a few months. He like others are going to make corrections as more information/knowledge is gained from this new virus. Unlike other Governors, he admitted to opening the state to soon. Any person who admitted to mistakes is willing to learn and grow…myself included is alright. Thank you for your concern.

    Mask or no mask. Leave it up to the individual. What’s wrong is trying to force everyone into anything. If I reduce my oxygen levels or increase my own CO2 level, it’s my own damned business!

  8. Let’s have some real truth on what the Perpetrators and multiple Patent-holders of these idiotic viruses Planned to subvert and seize our liberties for what ultimate purpose. They pulled off a Constitutional coup. One of their group had announced, “You will have an epidemic.” in 2017 to Georgetown elite. He and his billionaire tech funder, the Big Pharmas. other dynastic sinister Investors – all holding the shared viral patents and the shared future vaccine patents (Huge conflicts of Interest issue). to heist dual profits from those with weakened immune systems – they released the virus in polluted Wuhan. Dec. 2019.
    The virus plot need investigating on where exactly, which Labs weaponized it so it goes to the lungs. And how it was sent from U S CDC Labs over to Wuhan Labs. Who is in back of that? Or who gave the orders to do that? That’s a Crime against Humanity.

    We have an International Court at The Hague .It seems like that s where this “Covert- 19” crime should be sent.
    When will action be taken to open the Private Investigation on which Billionaire Investors and groups caused this epidemic / “Plandemic”J. Mikovitz) ? They genetically-engineered it ? They infected the elderly and those with obesity, diabetes, COPD, fibrosis or cancer, other ailments with patients who already had weakened immune systems. to start with culling the overpopulated globe, part of their goal.

    Then their “scheduled” and manufactured corona-SARS II lungs-attacking virus was let out in Dec. 2019 in polluted Wuhan. It could hav been a lab worker or scientist who had lost their job when the funding was cut off. Funding was lost. It was totally cut off. Then before you noticed it, many doctors, Lab Assistants, and Medical Drs in China had tried to speak up, but were silenced.

    We need the Legal Team to find out where the 3.4 million (Another figure given was 3.7 million ) that was sent over to that Wuhan Lab where more cultures of viruses were being “weaponized” was spent on. That’s an unacceptable vanished sum of our tax dollars for such an illicit purpose to be used to harm innocent persons globally. They used the oldest weapon known to bullies: Fear Propaganda tactics. And they’ve got you if that’s how much you have given up your healthy mind.

    Take it back. Your Rights & Freedoms &Liberties. Do take your vitamins, minerals and supplements and get some natural vitamin D sunshine. No excuses not to.

    Stop wearing the ridiculous masks EXCEPT if you are a caregiver of a sick patient or 2 ) you have symptoms.
    My question is “Where is the Legal Team to investigate these pretenders who’s egos are stirring up such injustice economically, deaths by mismanagement ( sending those elderly into hospitals, then making them go back to Nursing Homes where many crossed over that needed to have their regular care for pre-existing conditions and not all had “Covert-19” but were systematically labelled as only “Covid-19” on Death Certificates to get more money into that institution, fabricating, and making rubber number statistics is Fraud. That is tip of iceberg.

    While in the real E. Siberian Arctic, no one is looking at the Doomsday Clock ticking for a Big Arctic Ocean Event, a natural disaster, and record setting blazing heat for days now in the Eastern Siberian Ridge, the Russian Arctic of 100 Degrees F. A heat dome has settled over that area. Once the coldest place on Earth. Now children and teens are swimming in the melted ice and having a blast. We hope they don’t get a bacteriological infection from what is thawed out from thousands of years or millions? of hat permafrost and ice. melted waters or permafrost.

    I am 78 years old and I don’t wear a mask unless I am not allowed to move freely without it. So far, I have gotten my hair cut, shopped at Walmart, Best Buy, Safeway, King Soopers, Neighborhood Restaurant, and other establishments without a mask. I do try to stay away from close encounters with other humans so they don’t feel threatened by my presence.

    I am a bladder and kidney cancer survivor. I attribute my survival without the administration of chemo therapy to a highly boosted immune system, multiple natural supplements, and staying as far away from crowds as possible during the allergy and flu seasons as the main reason I am in good health. As far as I can tell, I don’t suffer from chronic diseases that would cause me health problems with COVID-19 virus.

    I think the masks are BS, but doesn’t the bullet explaining that wearing a mask traps the virus and can make you more sick support the notion that masks mitigate viral spread? If that’s the case, and it seems like it is according to TJ itself, it now becomes a matter of trade-offs.
