Unmasking the truth: Doctor exposes shocking facts about face masks, raising serious doubts about their effectiveness
(NaturalHealth365) It’s been over a year that we have been living under the spell cast on us by the mainstream media propaganda machine, making us believe that breathing fresh air outside was no longer safe. Strict mask mandates put in place throughout the U.S. and around the world, claim it is necessary to slow the spread of the coronavirus. Even in places where masks are not mandated outside, many people voluntarily cover their mouth and nose, thinking that doing so will protect them from contracting this invisible virus.
Thankfully, as days go by, more and more people wake up to the brutal reality that the draconian measures – lockdowns, mask mandates, and social distancing requirements – have little to no scientific basis and are nothing more than a massive overreach of government power. But what does science say about face masks? Has anyone taken a hard, critical look at the data to determine if masks even work at slowing the spread of the novel coronavirus?
Navy surgeon questions the new narrative that face masks make a difference to viral transmission
At last year’s America’s Frontline Doctors White Coat Summit, Dr. Lee Merritt, a navy physician, and fellowship-trained orthopedic spinal surgeon, gave a compelling presentation where she debunked the science behind masks. According to Dr. Merritt, the justification for mask-wearing is based on a “non-sense” narrative that has little to no scientific basis.
In her presentation, she cited multiple arguments, one of which gave a clear visual illustration of why masks are utterly ineffective at protecting us from viral particles. To demonstrate her point, she showed a picture of a man installing drywall, wearing a class II medical device earloop face mask – the kind that we’ve been encouraged to wear to “protect” against the coronavirus.
Shockingly, after removing the mask, the man had drywall particles stuck to his face, around his nose and mouth, in places previously covered by the face mask. Interesting, right? The mask failed to filter out sheetrock dust, which is about 10 microns in size, yet, we expect that same mask to protect us against the coronavirus, a much smaller particle of only 0.125 microns.
WARNING: These masks “will not provide any protection against COVID-19 (coronavirus) or other viruses or contaminants”
It turns out; size does matter. At least when it comes to masks and viruses. According to Dr. Merritt, different pathogens come in different sizes. While masks do work against larger-sized pathogens, such as the bacterium causing tuberculosis, they are ineffective against tiny particles.
If you take a closer look at the boxes these earloop masks come in, you will find further evidence that masks do not protect against the coronavirus. The warning is right there on the box, letting you know that wearing an earloop mask does not reduce your risk of contracting any disease or infection, nor does it protect you against viruses, such as COVID-19. If that’s the case, it begs the question of why anyone would continue wearing masks at all?
Here are the most common myths about wearing a mask
Dr. Merritt also took the time to highlight some of the most widespread myths about mask-wearing and busted every single one of them. Some believe that by wearing a mask, they protect others around them because the mask keeps most of the particles in when they cough or sneeze. It turns out, when you sneeze or cough, particles take the path of least resistance, and depending on the type of face mask, they either travel right through the material or find an exit on the sides of the mask.
Another common idea is that having a mask over your face filters out most viral particles, reducing the number of viral cells entering your body upon exposure, which means you won’t get as sick. This theory of “less virus, less illness” has been heavily publicized by two doctors from UC San Francisco, Dr. Monika Gandhi and Dr. George Rutherford, without any objective scientific evidence.
Can masks cause more harm than good?
As you can see, there are serious doubts about the effectiveness of masks to protect against COVID-19 even within the medical and scientific community. Even worse than that, there is mounting evidence showing that not only masks don’t work, but they may cause significant harm to your health.
A recently published Review of scientific reports of harms caused by face masks, up to February 2021, suggests that universal masking seriously harms people and society without any notable benefit. The author of the review, Denis G. Rancourt, points out multiple ways masks inflict damage and undermine our health. Some of the mask-related adverse health effects reported in a systematic review and meta-analysis were discomfort, irritation, psychological impact, and mask contamination.
The psychological and developmental implications of mask-wearing are particularly detrimental to children. Numerous studies show that face masks impair face recognition, verbal and non-verbal communication, block emotional signaling and diminish children’s ability to bond and emotionally connect with others.
Pay attention: Your mask can be a breeding ground for bacteria
Another area of concern of mask-wearing is that pathogens can rapidly accumulate in improperly used masks. When this occurs, masks can actually increase the risk of spreading viruses – including SARS-CoV-2 – to others.
So what should you do?
One thing is for sure, the benefits of wearing face masks to protect against the coronavirus are highly questionable. Instead of covering your face and blocking your airways, why not focus on strengthening your body’s natural defenses and support your immune system with fresh (organic) fruits, vegetables, clean water, and plenty of restorative sleep.
