A study posted posted on the U.S. National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) website cites exactly what we have been screaming since at least mid 2020.
“The NCBI is a division of the National Library of Medicine (NLM) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and, together with the collective research components of NIH, constitutes “the largest biomedical research facility in the world.”
“The paper, titled “Facemasks in the COVID-19 Era: A Health Hypothesis,” authored by Stanford University cardiologist Dr. Baruch Vainshelboim, and published in the January 2021 edition of the journal Medical Hypotheses, was deleted by Facebook and Twitter after it went viral on the left-wing social media platforms.”
The study “cited peer-reviewed studies demonstrating ‘that cloth masks have significant health and safety issues, including moisture retention, reuse, poor filtration and increased risk for infection.‘”
“The researcher also emphasized the ‘dehumanizing’ impact of a mask, opining that face coverings ‘partially delete the uniqueness and individuality of [the] person who is wearing the facemask, as well as the connected person.'”
Wearing a mask causes a ‘hypoxic and hypercapnic state that constantly challenges the normal homeostasis, and activates fight-or-flight stress response,’ and ‘encountering people … wearing face masks activates innate stress-fear emotion,’ Vainshelboim observed.”
“Masks restrict breathing, causing hypoxemia and hypercapnia, and increase the risk for respiratory complications, self-contamination and exacerbation of existing chronic conditions.” It continued, “The scientist also pointed out that there was no scientific evidence supporting the efficacy of masks ‘for reducing morbidity or mortality associated with infectious or viral diseases‘”
