The White House Coronavirus Task Force has advised Americans to wear masks. The theory is that even healthy people might be asymptomatic carriers of the COVID-19 virus and wearing a mask not only protects them from others but also protects people they come in contact with.
So, now many people assume that people who DON’T wear masks are basically selfish, self-absorbed sociopaths who refuse to comply with the rules of society — not to mention, being grandma killers!

Dentists Warn About Mask Mouth
So, when people wear COVID-19 masks, they think they are protecting themselves and others from a deadly pandemic. However, the following warnings about mask mouth may change their minds.
Mask mouth: Dentists issue serious health warning, an August 2020 article, says:
While the debate about wearing a mask continues to rage, these days, most places require them in public places. Whether you head to the grocery store, the doctor’s office, or a pharmacy, many areas, and businesses require you to wear a mask. However, one of the unforeseen issues that come with wearing a mask so much is one referred to as “mask mouth.”
In a recent report by the New York Post, dentists have issued a serious health warning to their patients and the country about the dangers of what they call mask mouth. It turns out that all those hours of wearing a mask may do severe damage to your oral health.
Dentists see the oral health side effects of mask mouth For some time, dentists closed their doors, but now that dentists are seeing patients again, they’ve quickly started seeing something new among patients – new oral symptoms they’re calling “mask mouth.” While patients are wearing a mask with the hope to help reduce the spread of COVID-19, it’s resulting in dental disasters like bad breath, decaying teeth, receding gum lines, and even gum disease. According to dentists, they see inflammation in the gums of patients who have long had healthy gums. Suddenly people who’ve had perfect oral health have cavities. Dentists report that around 50% of their patients are being affected by this risky habit, and if left untreated, it has the potential for long-term oral health risks.
What’s causing this problem? Dentists say that face coverings increase dry mouth problems, as well as a buildup of bacteria. When people wear a mask, they often breathe through the mouth, which dries out the mouth by decreasing saliva. Saliva is essential for fighting bacteria and cleaning the teeth, and it neutralizes acid within the mouth to prevent gum disease and tooth decay. If you’re wearing a mask all day, you’re also less likely to drink enough water through the day, which dries out the mouth further. And more people are consuming alcohol and coffee during lockdown, which also leads to hydration. Others may be slacking on their oral hygiene since they’re spending so much time wearing a mask or so much time at home.
The potential for long-term health risks of mask mouth Beyond the cavities and gum recession dentists see now, they’re warning patients about the long-term health risks of covering your mouth for hours and hours. This dangerous habit can lead to gum disease, and gum disease can eventually result in an increased risk of heart attack and stroke. While you can’t go most places without wearing a face covering these days, mask wearers can take some precautions to reduce the oral health risks of mask mouth. Take time to drink more water, reduce your caffeine intake, and skip the alcohol. Using a humidifier, scraping the tongue, going with alcohol-free mouthwash, and stopping smoking can all help, too. And try to breathe through your nose instead of your mouth when wearing a mask.
For healthier options, see If You HAVE To Wear a COVID-19 Mask!
Dr. Anthony Fauci, Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease at the National Institutes of Health and a member of the White House Coronavirus Task Force said in an article published on March 26 that COVID-19 is just a seasonal flu. The articles below show that masks are not necessary or effective and come with many risks for healthy people.
Doctors and Nurses: Wearing Masks Is Harmful in Several Ways! explains that many medical professionals are warning that wearing a mask is not only not necessary and not helpful – it can be very harmful in a number of ways!
In Blaylock: Face Masks Pose Serious Risks To The Healthy, Dr. Russell Blaylock says that not only do face masks fail to protect the healthy from getting sick, but they also create serious health risks to the wearer. He says that if you are not sick, you should not wear a face mask.
When a healthy person wears a face mask, they continuously re-rebreathe a portion of the CO2 that comes out of their lungs. Of course, there are many different types of masks that vary in such CO2 concentration, but the principal remains the same. Breathing air that is too rich in CO2 has its own negative health effects!
The article includes a video interview by Robyn Openshaw with Judy Mikovits, Ph.D, a top US virologist. Dr. Mikovits says, “We have to breathe oxygen. We can’t breathe back in our own toxic air. That’s why we exhale.” She says that wearing a mask is “horribly immune suppressive for healthy people. You’re not getting fresh air….You’re activating endogenous viruses”. She says that because a mask is warm and wet, you are making yourself sick when you wear it.
In addition, she points out that wearing a mask is abnormal and uncomfortable. She says “These are all things that are immune draining, not immune boosting….It makes no sense. You are not preventing infection. You’re not preventing spread.” Dr. Mikovits explains that you are not coughing any viruses – and you certainly are not coughing them six feet! So, the social distancing rules make no more sense than the requirements to wear masks! Dr. Mikovits advises: “If you’re healthy, take off the mask. Go outside….This is what we do in any flu season.”
The Case Against Masks: Ten Reasons Why Mask Use Should be Limited is an August 2020 book co-authored by Dr. Judy Mikovits and Kent Heckenlively. It is available on Amazon.
Dr. Anthony Fauci and Other Doctors Warn About Masks
The Masks That Will Not Go Away by Dr. Mark Sircus links to a video by Dr. Anthony Fauci saying that masks are not necessary or helpful and can be dangerous!
Here’s what Dr. Fauci says: “There’s no reason to be walking around with a mask. When you’re in the middle of an outbreak, wearing a mask might make people feel a little bit better, and it might even block a droplet, but it’s not providing the perfect protection that people ‘think’ that it is. “And often, there are unintended consequences: People keep fiddling with the mask and they keep touching their face.”
Dr. Sircus points out: “Government officials in the Netherlands will not ask citizens to wear masks as they say there is no clear evidence that doing so would slow the spread of the coronavirus….“Because from a medical perspective there is no proven effectiveness of masks, the Cabinet has decided that there will be no national obligation for wearing non-medical masks,” Dutch Minister for Medical Care Tamara van Ark said.”

Dr. Scott Atlas: Fully Re-Open America Now!
The photo below shows what’s being done to kids now in the name of “health”. This is in spite of the fact that several doctors have reported that there is not one documented case in the world of kids transmitting the COVID virus to anyone! This is nothing but child abuse.
Fortunately, Dr. Scott Atlas, whom Trump appointed as the Coronavirus Health Advisor in July, said that the current COVID-19 “health” policies will just create a neurotic generation. He described them as “national suicide”. So, he plans to re-open schools normally — with no masks and no social distancing.
