“Please don’t keep a face mask on your kids. My nephew went to get tubes in his ears. As mandated by the hospital, he wore a mask; 2 layers of woven fabric. They couldn’t get his 02 sats (saturation) over 87. They were bouncing from 80-87. Anything below 90 requires oxygen. They waited and waited until finally my sister had them remove his mask. After 2 breaths it jumped to 97.”
When I read those words, I wondered why a hospital would not be giving 02 with a mask? We never masked anyone for any procedure in the ORs I worked in until this ‘Rona came along! A child’s O2 saturation should be above 95% at all times, and they let it get down to 80?
Parents: please advocate if this happens to your child.
The CDC does not recommend masking for children under the age of 2 due to risks of suffocation. This seems to be the ONLY recommendation not changed several times regarding face masks.
The WHO just stated June 8, that Asymptomatic spread of coronavirus is ‘very rare,’ and numerous studies show face masks are neither safe nor effective. So, as schools prepare to create policies for children returning to school in the fall, we must keep these things in mind.
The epidemiology of SARS infections doesn’t seem to affect children as significantly as influenza. “SARS is a relatively mild disease in this age group.”
But What About Masks on Adults?
Some may do well wearing a face mask for short periods, but one should not attack and insult those who have chosen not to wear a face mask, as the following studies suggest that is the wise choice to make.
Get a pulse oximeter for yourself, put on a mask, see what it does to YOUR 02 levels, and learn your legal rights. 5 minutes!
Are Mandatory Masks “OSHA”-Approved?
Studies have indeed found significant problems with wearing such a mask. This can vary from headaches and carbon dioxide accumulation, all the way to serious life-threatening complications.
There is a difference between the N95 respirator mask and the surgical mask (cloth or paper mask) in terms of side effects. The N95 mask, which filters out 95% of particles with an average size of >0.3 microns, impairing respiratory exchange more than a soft mask, is more often associated with headaches. (1) Among health care workers studied a third developed headaches and 60% required pain medications for relief.
In another case, during major surgery, surgeons themselves had a decrease in blood O2 saturation and an increase in pulse rates.
This drop in oxygen levels (hypoxia) directly causes a direct lowering of the immune system.
Hypoxia inhibits the type of main immune cells used to fight viral infections called the CD4+ T-lymphocyte. Hypoxia sets off a whole chain reaction that stimulates a powerful immune inhibitor cell called the Tregs. This sets the stage for contracting any infection, including COVID-19 and making the consequences of that infection much graver. Simply put, your mask may very well put you at an increased risk of infections and an outcome like the formation of cancerous metastases.(2)(3)(4)
Cancer & Heart Risks from a Face Mask?
Cancer grows best in an environment that is low in oxygen. Cancer patients will fare worse from face mask hypoxia as it pro-inflammatory and spurs the growth, invasion and spread of cancers. (5)(6) Repeated episodes of hypoxia has been proposed as a significant factor in atherosclerosis, increasing all cardiovascular (heart attacks) and cerebrovascular (strokes) diseases. (7)
When someone has any respiratory virus, they will exhale some of it with each breath. When wearing a face mask they will be constantly rebreathing the viruses, raising the concentration of the virus in the lungs and the nasal passages.
We not only rebreath our own C02 and viruses, but it gets scarier!
Can a Face Mask Cause Us To Breath COVID-19 Virus Into the Brain?
The answer in 3 studies appears to be YES. See the links to the studies in the quote below!
Dr. Russell Blaylock brings us evidence in studies suggesting that in some cases the virus can enter the brain. (8)(9) “By wearing a face mask, the exhaled viruses will not be able to escape and will concentrate in the nasal passages, enter the olfactory nerves and travel into the brain.” (10)
Sadly, the experts aren’t telling those with lung diseases, such as emphysema or COPD, of the risks when wearing a face mask of any kind—which can cause a severe decline in lung function. This also includes patients with lung cancer or other cancers.
Dr. Blaylock goes on to say:
“The fact that this virus is a relatively benign infection for the vast majority of the population and that most of the at-risk group also survive, from an infectious disease and epidemiological standpoint, by letting the virus spread through the healthier population we will reach a herd immunity level rather quickly that will end this pandemic quickly and prevent a return next winter. During this time, we need to protect the at-risk population by avoiding close contact, boosting their immunity with compounds that boost cellular immunity and in general, care for them.”
So a parting reminder to parents: don’t let anyone do a procedure on your child (or an adult, for that matter) in a mask without oxygen—which should be standard practice in all hospitals!”
IMPORTANT PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
July 2, 2020 | By|
I’ve been told, “But Jacque, you always wore a mask when you were in the operating room! You of all people should be encouraging people to wear masks!”
At 68, you’d think I’d want to wear a mask to protect myself from Covid-19. Instead, I’m very discouraged to see so many “educated” medical professionals forgetting their foundational knowledge and promoting unsubstantiated practices.
Let’s look at a few key facts.
1. In the surgical suite, we wear masks for 2 main reasons, neither of which have anything to do with preventing the spread of viruses.
Standard medical masks are great for:
- keeping the team’s spit out of the patient’s wound or incision
- preventing bits of tissue and splatter from popping into our mouths
One needs an electron microscope to see a COVID 19 virus particle. Average COVID 19 virus particle size… is 0.125 microns… The hoarded N 95 mask only filters down to 0.3 microns. So, N95 masks block few, if any, virus particles. This is a simple fact, so you just cannot argue against it. ~Doc Graham, MD
Both cotton and surgical masks are ineffective in preventing coughs of patients with COVID-19.
And if an N95 mask doesn’t fit properly, it will NOT work!
For standard hospital use, we are annually fit tested for an N95.
Dr. Leora goes on to explain 7 more things needed to pass the fit test — so it’s obvious an N95 mask certainly doesn’t help laymen!
2. For the layman, using masks without the proper training INCREASES exposure.
Most people have no idea that most masks provide little, if any, protection against viruses.
Wearing a mask gives a false sense of security.
And they’re essentially humid little germ incubators.
Your mask is really just:
- recirculating your own germs
- lowering your oxygen level
- certainly negatively impacting your immune system (see 5 more ways below)
A representative from the CDC told Reuters: “The CO2 will build up in the mask over time…the level of CO2 likely to build up in the mask is mostly tolerable to people exposed to it. You might get a headache but you most likely [would] not suffer the symptoms observed at much higher levels of CO2. The mask can become uncomfortable for a variety of reasons including a sensitivity to CO2 and the person will be motivated to remove the mask…”(see the rest here)
So go ahead with your cloth mask and create more laundry for yourself, but understand, you will be doing LITTLE to stop the spread of pathogens (and you may be making it WORSE when you handle it improperly).
“The take-home message is that the virus can remain infectious for several hours, potentially up to a few days, on various surfaces, including masks,” says Amandine Gamble, infectious disease expert
6 ways to flatten a healthy immune system or worsen a stressed one:
1. Being stressed or anxious raises cortisol (aka the “death hormone”) which weakens our immune system.
2. Wearing a mask frequently, especially while being active, has certain impact. The body requires AMPLE amounts of oxygen for optimal immune health. Proper oxygenation of cells and blood is ESSENTIAL for the body to function as it needs to in order to fight off any illness.
3. Consuming refined sugars. It’s been known for decades that refined sugars shut down white blood cell production for up to five hours after consumption.
4. Staying inside rather than being outside to take in air, sunshine (Vitamin D), and soil bacteria.
5. Avoiding physical contact with others. Physical touch has been shown to boost the immune system. Research shows women who receive more hugs from their partners have lower heart rates and blood pressure. Hugs strengthen the immune system…The gentle pressure on the sternum and the emotional charge this creates stimulates the thymus gland, which regulates and balances the body’s production of white blood cells.
6. Using harsh antibacterial sanitizers, soaps, cleaners, etc. The microbiome of our skin requires beneficial microbes as well as some levels of pathogenic and physiologic microbes (bacteria and viruses) in order to keep the immune system continuously protected from very harmful bacteria and viruses.
Anybody awake yet?! Do you see how we are being pulled away from God’s natural design for our immune system?! Hmmm why would that be??!! (Source)
“The moisture from exhalation inside the mask, when in constant contact with the 37 degrees Celsius warm human body, becomes ideal place for virus and bacteria to thrive. This could result in the growth of microbes on masks and aid the spread of airborne diseases like influenza. It can lead to oxygen shortage, suffocation, respiration trouble, and heart attacks.“ ~Dr. D. Saha
“My constitutional freedoms do not end where another person’s fear begins.” ~Sara Jo Poff
