Physician and Medical Journal Editor: Healthy People Should Not Wear Face Masks

Jim Meehan, MD

Excerpt:

During the COVID-19 pandemic, public health experts began telling us to follow a number of disease mitigation strategies that sounded reasonably scientific, but actually had little or no support in the scientific literature. Community wearing of masks was one of the more dangerous recommendations from our confused public health experts.

We were frequently confused by the mixed messages coming from public health agencies. Early in the pandemic Dr. Fauci, the U.S. Surgeon General, and the WHO all told the public, in no uncertain terms, not to wear masks. Then, over the course of the next several weeks and months, the CDC twice changed their recommendations, as did the WHO, and the recommendations always contradicted each other!

The CDC made the mistake of telling us cloth masks worked, and they even provided directions on their website for making homemade cloth masks.

To clear up the confusion, I will show that the scientific evidence not only does not support the community wearing of face masks, but the evidence shows that healthy people wearing face masks pose serious health risks to wearers.

Hiding our faces behind masks and isolating in our homes is not the solution, at least not for most people with healthy immune systems. Supporting the health of your immune system, confidently confronting all pathogens, and allowing herd immunity to develop and protect the vulnerable populations should be the goal.

What’s happening in the world today, including the misinformation surrounding community mask wearing, is about political agendas, symbolism, fear, and dividing and isolating the people. It has nothing to do with science.

New CDC and WHO Study Proves “No Evidence” Face Masks Prevent Virus

by Ben Swann

Excerpt:

FB’s so called “fact checkers” have struck again, claiming that my report on the science that proves that wearing facemasks, especially in non-medical settings does almost nothing to prevent the spread of a virus, is false… citing that it was based on old information.

Now, I’m reporting on a new study created in conjunction with the World Health Organization and published by the CDC from less than 60 days ago that once again proves that there is no evidence that wearing face masks in public prevents the spread of flu-like viruses.

I’m also going to show you why the Facebook fact-checking system cannot be trusted.

Link to the CDC published study. This study was conducted in preparation for the development of guidelines by the World Health Organization on the use of nonpharmaceutical interventions for pandemic influenza in nonmedical settings.

This study was supported by the World Health Organization.

The Great Unmasking: Studies in the Medical Literature Show FEWER Infections in Surgery when Medical Staff Do NOT Wear Masks

by Arthur Firstenberg

Excerpt:

Early on during the COVID Plandemic, when mask mandates began to be rolled out, which incidentally only began after California Governor Gavin Newsom’s nearly 1 BILLION dollar purchase of Chinese-made masks began clearing customs and making its way into the U.S. marketplace, I was told one weekend in June that I could not enter an open air Farmer’s Market without a face mask.

I refused, and entered the market anyway, since it was on public property. The young man who tried to prevent my entry followed me through the market to make sure I did not try to purchase anything, and I tried to engage him in an intellectual debate on the rationale for wearing face masks outside in a wide open space.

I told him that many medical doctors were exposing the dangers of wearing face masks for too long, to which he replied:

“Oh really? So when a doctor performing brain surgery is wearing a face mask, he’s wrong?”

I came to a full stop, looked him directly in the eyes and said:

“Do you see anyone around here performing brain surgery? Yes, in a hospital surgery setting, a face mask is appropriate, but not outside in the fresh air like this.”

Now, I am not so sure that my response was accurate after all, as even that belief, the belief that surgical masks are necessary during surgery, is now being challenged.

A man in Australia who claims he went to medical school, has challenged my belief by providing links to his own research, with many of those links going directly to the U.S. National Institute of Health’s website.

He writes:

“As a person who went to medical school, I was shocked when I read Neil Orr’s study, published in 1981 in the Annals of the Royal College of Surgeons of England.

Dr. Orr was a surgeon in the Severalls Surgical Unit in Colchester. And for six months, from March through August 1980, the surgeons and staff in that unit decided to see what would happen if they did not wear masks during surgeries.

They wore no masks for six months, and compared the rate of surgical wound infections from March through August 1980 with the rate of wound infections from March through August of the previous four years.

And they discovered, to their amazement, that when nobody wore masks during surgeries, the rate of wound infections was less than half what it was when everyone wore masks.

Their conclusion: ‘It would appear that minimum contamination can best be achieved by not wearing a mask at all” and that wearing a mask during surgery “is a standard procedure that could be abandoned.’

I was so amazed that I scoured the medical literature, sure that this was a fluke and that newer studies must show the utility of masks in preventing the spread of disease.

But to my surprise the medical literature for the past forty-five years has been consistent: masks are useless in preventing the spread of disease and, if anything, are unsanitary objects that themselves spread bacteria and viruses.”

Booming Face Mask Business in U.S. Creating Instant Millionaires Using Government Funds to Buy Masks from China

by Brian Shilhavy

Excerpt:

Why are state governors and health authorities all of a sudden mandating the wearing of face masks?

The excuse is that these mandates are needed because of the “spike” in new cases and increased hospitalizations due to COVID.

But for even the casually inquisitive mind who starts to ask simple questions to try and figure out the rationale for this, it becomes very obvious that there is something else motivating these new edicts, because:

1. They were NOT mandated during the height of the so-called crisis, and are only in recent days being mandated.

2. When these mandates are given, the basis for them is almost entirely on an appeal to authority, with no science being offered to rationalize the mandates.

3. The mandates do not even specify what kind of mask one needs to supposedly protect oneself and stop the spread of COVID, so that means pretty much anything that loosely resembles a mask is OK to comply with these mandates.

For the citizens of this country who an “appeal to authority” is not reason enough to do something the government tells us to do, and therefore looks at the facts to see if there is any justification for these mandates, the obvious question is: What is the REAL reason behind these new mandates to wear masks?

There are multiple potential reasons, but one reason is based on solid evidence: it is a financial windfall, and everyone wants to get in on it.

The main problem is that when the Plandemic crisis first hit, there were not enough masks available to mandate them. So the government did not.

They used the excuse, of course, that they wanted to reserve the existing face masks for the front line medical workers, which is just further proof that the public’s safety and well-being was not their primary concern.

And we shouldn’t believe it is now, either.

Most of the face masks are from China, and it took some time to ramp up production and get them approved, so that they have only started becoming more widely available in recent weeks, about the same time that governors and health officials started mandating them.

Coincidence?

ProPublica just published a report that shows how easy it is to create an instant business to take advantage of this mandated market that has been created by Big Pharma and local governments and health officials. The title of their report is: You Can Make Millions Selling Masks to the Government in Three Easy Steps.

Resisting the New World Order: Face Mask Shaming – Hypocrisy in the Corporate Media and a Doctor Speaks Out AGAINST Face Masks

by Dr. Alan Palmer

Excerpt:

Yesterday we reported how the Globalists working through the United Nations are no longer hiding the fact that they want to usher in a “New World Order,” and that we can now remove the word “theory” from the pejorative term “Conspiracy Theories” when discussing this agenda.

The 2020 Coronavirus Plandemic has been their most successful campaign to date in their agenda to establish this “New World Order.”

If you are reading alternative news from sites like Health Impact News, you are in a position to resist these efforts to radically change our way of life, and become part of the resistance movement that is gaining speed.

Today we revisit the topic of face masks, and face mask shaming.

As we discussed yesterday, the corporate propaganda media is controlled by these Globalists, and after initially stating that face masks were not necessary during the early days of the Plandemic, they are now joining forces together to try and make these masks mandatory, and shaming anyone who does not comply.

Recently, a reporter for the corporate media was in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, a tourist area in the southern part of the state that draws many summer tourists from Chicago and Illinois.

Wisconsin was the first state in the U.S. to challenge the governor’s coronavirus policies in court, and the Wisconsin Supreme Court declared them unconstitutional, allowing businesses to immediately reopen, and for people to leave their homes and go about their business.

Therefore, they are a target now for the corporate propaganda media, who attempted to send a national reporter there to shame them.

The reporter from MSNBC, Cal Perry, was trying to shame people in Wisconsin for walking outdoors in the fresh air with no face masks.

But in these days of cell phone cameras where any citizen can become an instant on-the-scene reporter, a passerby who was being criticized for not wearing a face mask, turned around and filmed the MSNBC film crew who were “behind the scenes” with Cal Perry, showing that half of them were not even wearing face masks either.

Multiple copies of the encounter which clearly exposes the agenda of the corporate propaganda media are now all over Facebook and YouTube.

Another citizen on-the-scene reporter with their cell phone camera captured a scene inside a New York grocery store, where a woman who entered the store without a face mask incurred the wrath of the other shoppers, that they began shouting at her and chased her out of the store, so great was their fear over the virus.

When this happens, the Globalists trying to setup their New World Order are winning.

Dr. Anthony Fauci, who has flip flopped himself on this issue, recently stated that one of his motivations for wearing one is:

“because I want to make it be a symbol for people to see that that’s the kind of thing you should be doing.”

Dr. Alan Palmer, a practicing chiropractor for 30 years, has written a very extensive analysis of the medical data behind wearing face masks at Children’s Health Defense, and we include it here.

He joins many other doctors, many of them medical doctors, across the U.S. who are saying the same thing, such as Dr. Andrew Kaufman, a psychiatrist who lost his job because he refused to wear a face mask, and has declared publicly that he is willing to go to jail to resist the agenda of the Globalists.

New WHO Guidelines for Face Masks Admit No Known Medical Benefits – Psychological Brain Washing

by Brian Shilhavy

Excerpt:

The World Health Organization released new guidelines for using masks this past week.

The document is called: Advice on the use of masks in the context of COVID-19.

Some highlights:

“The widespread use of masks by healthy people in the community setting is not yet supported by high quality or direct scientific evidence and there are potential benefits and harms to consider…the use of a mask alone is insufficient to provide an adequate level of protection.”

But you should still keep wearing one for these non-medical reasons:

Reduced potential stigmatization of individuals wearing masks to prevent infecting others (source control) or of people caring for COVID-19 patients in non-clinical settings.

Making people feel they can play a role in contributing to stopping spread of the virus.

Reminding people to be compliant with other measures.

The production of non-medical masks may offer a source of income for those able to manufacture masks within their communities.

Fabric masks can also be a form of cultural expression, encouraging public acceptance of protection measures in general.

So there you go. It is all a big “social experiment” to see if they can get you to voluntarily comply, and has nothing to do with health. They actually admit this now, and do not even deny it.

But wait, it gets even better!

Doctors now encourage people to wear a mask when having sex! (You can’t make this stuff up!!)

New Health Problems Emerging from Continuous Mask Wearing, but “Attempted Murder” Charges Sought for Those Who Refuse to Wear Masks

by Dr. Ron Paul

Excerpt:

The NY Post published an article recently interviewing dentists who are claiming:

“We’re seeing inflammation in people’s gums that have been healthy forever, and cavities in people who have never had them before,” says Dr. Rob Ramondi, a dentist and co-founder of One Manhattan Dental. “About 50% of our patients are being impacted by this, [so] we decided to name it ‘mask mouth’ — after ‘meth mouth.’ ”

There is so much news on the topic of mandatory masks, that it is hard to keep up with it all. Countries and other large areas that do NOT mandate face masks are actually seeing FEWER new cases of COVID.

In Nashville, a Council Member has publicly stated that people who refuse to comply with government edicts to wear masks should be charged with murder or attempted murder.

When are people going to wake up to the face mask scam?

Tyrants dictate their use, mainly for motives of profit (see: Booming Face Mask Business in U.S. Creating Instant Millionaires Using Government Funds to Buy Masks from China) or social engineering, and people don’t seem to be intelligent enough to ask basic questions about these mask mandates, such as, if they are actually effective, then what type of mask? How does one dispose of them as bio-hazard waste? How often should one be worn before discarded?, etc.

The evidence is overwhelming now: face masks are harming people and protecting nobody.

Dr. Ron Paul covers these issues, and he has also written a new article about the rapid loss of civil rights as the police state tightens it grip on the public.

Face Masks Harm Children and Some Have Even Died – But California Governor Dictates Everyone to Wear Them

Leigh Dundas

Excerpt:

California Governor Gavin Newsom and the California Department of Public Health announced today that everyone in the State of California should wear a face mask when they leave their home.

“Science shows that face coverings and masks work,” said Governor Gavin Newsom. “They are critical to keeping those who are around you safe, keeping businesses open and restarting our economy.”

So where is this “growing body of scientific research”?

I read the public statement and clicked on the link to the GUIDANCE FOR THE USE OF FACE COVERINGS to see which studies supported such a sweeping, dangerous action for public health.

There are none.

In fact, if we take the World Health Organization at their word on this subject, then Governor Newsom is lying to the residents of his state, because the WHO has stated:

“The widespread use of masks by healthy people in the community setting is not yet supported by high quality or direct scientific evidence and there are potential benefits and harms to consider…the use of a mask alone is insufficient to provide an adequate level of protection.”

Apparently people in California are just supposed to trust the Governor and Health Department’s word on this, as it is simply an appeal to authority, authority that some argue they don’t possess.

Civil Rights Attorney Leigh Dundas is someone who is not taking their advice on this subject, and has taken action to stop the practice, as the real science shows that wearing a face mask all day long is detrimental to one’s health, and some have even died as a result, including two school children in China.

Attorney Dundas has challenged California Orange County Chief Health Officer Dr. Nichole and her order to require county residents to wear face masks, and the backlash that resulted was so great that Dr. Nichole recently quit.

This is important news, because as we explained earlier this week in our article about Virginia’s new law, H.B.1090, unelected people from the medical industry populate these local health boards, and it is assumed that they have the power to order the citizens of their community to do whatever they please, including mandatory vaccinations.

Attorney Dundas has shown that these unelected medical tyrants can be opposed, and citizens really are under no obligation to comply with their dictates.
