Tooth decay should be on there. You wear a mask for a long time and bacteria will build up even faster in your mouth.
I suspect its whats causing some of the other issues.
In addition to everything, I’m gargling listerine as often as I can.
‘A recent Stanford study released by the NCBI, which is under the National Institutes of Health, showed that masks do absolutely nothing to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 and their use is even harmful.’
and the mask loving amen corner here on FR are most incensed and offended, and have taken great pains to bash both the study and the author (a glorified gym teacher, some poster called him yesterday)...
All these warnings and they still want us to wear them.
Fauxci- Wear two death masks for twice the fun in the foreseeable future until we lower the infection rate to an acceptable level...can’t tell you the number, but zero Covid infections for a decade would be nice...
And, everybody should double your pleasure until we get SCOTUS fully locked in at 8-5 Communists...
/s of course!
Fauci will not like this study.
But this study makes sense.
If we are not wearing medical grade mask
we are not protected. So masks are just theatre
like Rand Paul said.
How often do you folks wear masks? I only wear it for about 5 minutes a day, some days not at all. I wore it longer when I was an EMT.
Actually medical grade masks don’t seem to make much difference either.
The psychological effects certainly explain the phenomenon of Karens.
They would really want a noose or a plastic bag around your neck but we are not ready for this yet
The author ignores the fact that masks are comprised of multiple layers of fibers, not individual layers. It's not like throwing a golf ball at a chain link fence, it's like throwing a golf ball at a hundred layers of chain link fence. And, for that matter, the virus is transmitted via droplets that are more like the size of a baseball being thrown at a hundred layers of chain link fence.
And; furthermore, multiple studies have shown that facemasks do not, in fact, cause hypercapnia or hypoxia. Here's one that's so clear, even a caveman can understand it. De. Bunked.
Here are multiple videos demonstrating that facemasks do, in fact, reduce the transmission speed, distance and "hang time" of droplets.
Then the author cites the following study as evidence that wearing facemasks is pointless: 26) Leung N.H.L., Chu D.K.W., Shiu E.Y.C., Chan K.H., McDevitt J.J., Hau B.J.P. Respiratory virus shedding in exhaled breath and efficacy of face masks
This is the actual conclusion of that particular study stated:
This isn't even a study. It's straight up BS.
Better download this before big tech scrubs it.
Thank you Karen.
Anyone wearing glasses knows that the lens fog up when breathing with a ChiCom virus mask on because the exhaled air excapes through gaps in the mask around the nose. A properly fitted (half- or full-face) respirator mask on a clean-shaven face is needed to block such paths of exhaled air.
And no doubt are not accidental.
Especially for people who smoke I imagine.
Let them wear their masks. They should then let me choose.
What I’ve experienced.
I’ve used these fiber-type masks when working around smoke for years. They are a bit effective, but lung issues still are evident.
In the mid-term, they aren’t good enough to prevent problems is my experience.
