1.) Shortness of breath and Lightheadedness due to increases in CO2 levels in your body
2.) Headaches – Long term wearing of masks can result in repeated headaches, stress, and changes in oxygen and carbon dioxide levels in the blood.
3.) Acne – Rewearing mask can lead to inhalation of dust, pllen, bacteria, and other particle contaminants trapped within the mask material.
4.) Development of chronic dermatitis – Surgical masks made by using chemicals to bond fibers together can cause skin to break out and have long term consequences in terms of recurrence and scarring of the skin around the face.
5.) A weakened Immune System – Denial of oxygen can cripple our immune system’s ability to tackle infections, especially for seniors and young people.
6.) Skin wrinkles – Another effect of long term mask use
7.) Development of Chronic Respiratory Conditions -Exposure to mask can trigger an asthma-like inflammatory response in the lungs due to inhalation of microfibers in the material that forms in masks.
8.) How not to get sick from your face mask – Take regular breaks to breathe fresh air and make sure you can breathe easily.
July 8, 2020 | Masks Exposed and the Health Risks Involved | PPE = personal protective equipment |
“WARNING: This mask should not be used for toxic or hazardous air contaminants, such as paint spray, asbestos, silica, cotton, or other toxic dusts, gases, fumes, and vapors. Replace mask if breathing becomes difficult. This mask is not to be used except as indicated. This mask does not remove the risk of contracting any disease or infection. Change immediately if contaminated with blood or other bodily fluid.”

Dr. Andrew Kaufman
“Dr. Russell Blaylock warns that not only do face masks fail to protect the healthy from getting sick, but they also create serious health risks to the wearer. The bottom line is that if you are not sick, you should not wear a face mask.”
“One should not attack and insult those who have chosen not to wear a mask, as these studies suggest that is the wise choice to make.”
