The White House Coronavirus Task Force advised Americans to wear masks. Their 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 protects people they come in contact with. How does that view stack up to the science? Is wearing a mask necessary or effective? Can it be extremely harmful?
There’s a great irony that massive protests broke out in response to the police killing of George Floyd who reportedly died saying, “I can’t breathe”. Yet, many protesters wore masks that greatly restricted their breathing! Are there serious consequences to mask wearing the mainstream media is ignoring?
Many Hidden Dangers of “Mask Mouth”! points out:
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.”
Dentists Warn About “Mask Mouth”!
The article adds:
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.
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.

Wearing Masks Can Damage Your Kidneys!
How many people are unwittingly causing themselves multiple health problems by wearing masks all day every day for months? Why are they so willing to comply with policies that hundreds of American doctors and MDs around the world say are unnecessary, ineffective, and extremely harmful?
Dr. Mark Sircus warns in Saving Our Kidneys Saving Lives:
Each year, kidney disease kills more people than breast or prostate cancer. Kidney disease often has no symptoms in its early stages and can go undetected until it is very advanced. For this reason, kidney disease is often referred to as a “silent disease.” More than 661,000 Americans have kidney failure….In 2013, more than 47,000 Americans died from kidney disease.
Dr. Sircus adds:
The information you will get from mainstream medicine fails to tell you that kidneys are sensitive to low body temperature, hypoxia (low oxygen conditions), toxicity, and like every organ in the body, they are sensitive to magnesium deficiencies. They are also susceptible to acidic conditions of the fluids and the blood. The kidneys are highly metabolically active organs and second only to the heart with respect to oxygen consumption (QO2) per tissue mass. Despite excessive oxygen delivery owing to abundant perfusion, the kidneys are considerably susceptible to hypoxic injury.
Thus it is dangerous for kidney patients to wear masks because they cut down on oxygen intake. The brain competes with the kidneys, and our hearts for oxygen, so listen to Dr. Margarite Griesz-Brisson MD, Ph.D. who is a Consultant Neurologist and Neurophysiologist with a Ph.D. in Pharmacology, who says about facemasks and their effects on our brains:
“The reinhalation of our exhaled air will, without a doubt, creates oxygen deficiency and a flooding of carbon dioxide.” The kidney shows a remarkable discrepancy between blood supply and oxygenation. Despite high blood flow and oxygen delivery, the kidney’s oxygen tensions are comparatively low, particularly in the renal medulla. The limitation in renal tissue oxygen supply renders the kidney susceptible to hypoxia and has long been recognized as an essential factor in the pathogenesis of acute renal injury.”
So, people who agree to wear masks even when not required are possibly causing themselves multiple serious health problems. Yet, they are taking those risks for a flu which the Center For Disease Control says poses little or no risk to people under 70 or for healthy people over 70. What’s wrong with this picture?
MD: Healthy People Should Not Wear Face Masks
In Physician and Medical Journal Editor: Healthy People Should Not Wear Face Masks, Jim Meehan, MD cites the article Blaylock: Face Masks Pose Serious Risks to the Healthy and warns: “Community wearing of masks was one of the more dangerous recommendations from our confused public health experts.”
The article raises serious questions about the COVID-19 “health” policies. It warns:
As a physician and former medical journal editor, I’ve carefully read the scientific literature regarding the use of face masks to mitigate viral transmission. I believe the public health experts have community wearing of masks all wrong. What follows are the key issues that should inform the public against wearing medical face masks during the CoVID-19 pandemic, as well as all future respiratory disease pandemics….
Despite the scientific evidence to the contrary, public health experts claim that medical masks do not cause clinically significant hypoxia (low oxygen) and hypercapnia (high CO2). I would like to ask those experts to explain the growing number of cases in which medical masks worn during exercise have resulted in lung injuries and heart attacks…
Remember how medical face masks decrease blood oxygen levels? Well, now you need to know that SARS CoV-2’s ability to invade and infect our cells is greatly enhanced under conditions of low oxygen. Therefore, wearing a medical mask may increase the severity of CoVID-19. If that does not motivate you to ditch your mask, there are more reasons to come.
Masking the public was never about science…Community wearing of face masks was never about science, health, or disease mitigation; it was always about symbolism, fear, and psychological operations to control the population.
Respiratory infection is much higher among healthcare workers wearing cloth masks compared to medical masks, research shows. Cloth masks should not be used by workers in any healthcare setting, authors of the new study say….The widespread 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….The penetration of cloth masks by particles was almost 97% compared to medical masks with 44%…The author speculate that the cloth masks/ moisture retention, their reuse and poor filtration may explain the increased risk of infection.
Professor MacIntyre, who has completed the largest body of clinical trial research on respiratory protection in health workers internationally, said “it is important for global disease control that the use of cloth masks be discouraged in high-risk situations. Despite more than half the world using cloth masks, global disease control guidelines, including those from the World Health Organisation, fail to clearly specify conditions of their use. These guidelines need to be updated to reflect the higher infection risk posed by cloth masks, as found in our study. Professor MacIntypre said the study’s results pointed to the effectiveness of medical masks, in addition to the harm caused by cloth masks.
Why has the public been misled to adopt a “health” policy that is unnecessary, ineffective, and actually undermines health in multiple serious ways?
The Case Against Masks: Ten Reasons Why Mask Use Should be Limited is a 2020 book co-authored by Dr. Judy Mikovits and Kent Heckenlively. It has been purged by Amazon, but is still available at Barnes & Noble here.
Amazon was carrying this book in August. However, it is no longer available on Amazon. So, it seems to be a victim of Amazon’s apparently now growing ban of books that contradict the official COVID narrative. For example, Amazon sells several books by Dr. Thomas Cowan as well as many of his nutritional supplements. It also sells several books by Dr. Sally Fallon. However, in September, Amazon banned their new book Contagion Myth: Why Viruses (including “Coronavirus”) Are Not the Cause of Disease which was the #1 Best Seller at Barnes & Noble! Banning books denies Americans freedom of speech and freedom of the press guaranteed by the First Amendment. Book banning now is equivalent to book burning in Nazi Germany. What are the Tech Titans so afraid of Americans knowing? Knowledge is power. In denying Americans access to information, Big Tech is undermining the power of the nation. That makes companies that censor books anti-American.
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. Mark Sircus Charges Possible Genocide
In Wearing Masks – A Sledgehammer to Health, Dr. Mark Sircus says:
A group of men and women executed a well thought out plan to drive the health of the human race into the toilet. Attacking the very basics of life, they have deprived people, en mass, of the life/health-giving rays of the sun (depressing vitamin D levels) with their lock-downs. And through wearing masks, public health officials are forcing the public into hypoxic breathing conditions. Wearing a mask reduces the oxygen we breathe in and increases the CO2 intake.
Of course, health officials are all for masks, and you better get used to them. One health expert is predicting that masks will remain a facet of American life for years to come. Eric Toner, a senior scholar at the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security, said, “I think that mask-wearing and some degree of social distancing, we will be living with — hopefully living with happily — for several years.”
What will be the effect will be of depriving oxygen to billions of people for years? How happy will that make people? Or inhaling dangerous amounts of CO2, what is that going to do to peoples’ health after several years or even after only a few weeks or months. Decreasing the amount of oxygen people are breathing, by forcing people to wear masks, is cruel and medically stupid, as Dr. Buttar points out. Under the mask, O2 readings drop from a regular 21 to an unhealthy 17.5, ringing the alarm of the official OSHA devices that measure such things.
Serious side effects can occur if the oxygen levels drop outside the safe zone. When oxygen concentrations drop from 19.5 to 16 percent, and you engage in physical activity, your cells fail to receive the oxygen needed to function correctly. So wearing masks is not indicated for any reason because masks represent slow suffocation. Not quite as bad as strangling a person or killing them outright by completely cutting off their breath, but across the board, health will be depressed, and death from all causes will increase.
When will we realize that health officials are death officials and that the World Health Organization is the World Unhealth Organization? Modern medicine is a death machine, and pharmaceutical terrorism has been behind human misery on a breathtaking scale for more years than most of us have been alive….The authorities have decided to pull the plug on life as we know it. The coronavirus by itself is not a problem for the majority, but the governmental and medical response to it will hurt everyone. Lock-downs and the wearing of masks will take a sledgehammer to human health.
When the body count from starvation, increased suicides, and deaths from critical patients, who stay at home out of fear of going to the hospitals, we have one thing. But when we deprive humans of sunlight and oxygen while exposing them to dangerous levels of CO2, we might find ourselves witnessing eventual genocide.”
Protests Grow Against Mandatory Masks
Some good news this week as, apparently, there is still a pulse among liberty-minded citizens in one small North Carolina town that turned out in mass to defy the City’s attempt to mandate mask requirements. When told they had to wear a mask to participate in the meeting, they refused, and the City Council and local police backed down in front of the angry crowd. This is the kind of action it is going to take across the country to stop medical tyranny…. Waynesville leaders backed down from a proposed local mask mandate Tuesday night after nearly 100 people packed town hall to voice their opposition.
The article concludes:
Janet Presson was among those who didn’t get to speak in the public hearing and was barred from talking about masks during the public comment period, as well. “We were told they were done with the mask issue and you couldn’t say the ‘m’ word,” Presson said. “They did everything they could to silence our voices.” She said the town was clearly unprepared to handle the turnout. “I think they were dumbfounded and horrified,” Presson said. “Mask mandates are a major issue that affect every single person. It is a hot-button issue. They should have done some better planning.” The latest indication is the town leaders will not sign the mask proclamation tonight as originally believed.
When city authorities in Waynesville, NC, announced that they were considering a city mask mandate they had no idea what was about to hit them. At the city council meeting at which the discussion was to take place, a massive show of citizen opposition and participation stole the show from the mandate promoters.”
Will President Biden Try To Force Americans To Wear Masks?
With flu season upon us and the election around the corner, the question arises: would a President Biden be content to try and persuade the nation to follow his lead with public safety announcements, or would he use the government to compel the country to cover its face? Biden and his campaign appear to say different things at different times. He spent most of the summer calling for a national mask mandate, but then publicly questioned whether the federal government even had the authority to enforce such an order….
Until recently, Biden had advocated for a federalist approach to nationwide mask mandates — individual state orders implemented by governors. But in his most recent remarks, the Democratic nominee returned again to the idea of a federal mandate…. Biden did call for a national mask mandate, and he did it during the biggest speech of his political career. “We’ll have a national mandate to wear a mask,” Biden said halfway through his speech at the Democratic National Convention in August, “not as a burden, but as a patriotic duty to protect one another.” It was, he said, part of the pandemic strategy that he would implement “on Day One.”
The article adds:
But a national mask mandate isn’t as simple as it sounds. Who would enforce such an order? Would it be a federal order or a patchwork of state requirements? …… “If the president has the unilateral power to order every single citizen to cover their face in nearly all instances, what other powers does he have?” Trump said August 13, arguing that a national mandate overstepped the limits of presidential power.
