The planet may be facing a new plastic crisis, similar to the one brought on by bottled water, but this time involving discarded face masks. “Mass masking” continues to be recommended by most public health groups during the COVID-19 pandemic, despite research showing masks do not significantly reduce the incidence of infection.1

As a result, it’s estimated that 129 billion face masks are used worldwide each month, which works out to about 3 million masks a minute. Most of these are the disposable variety, made from plastic microfibers.2

Ranging in size from five millimeters (mm) to microscopic lengths, microplastics, which include microfibers, are being ingested by fish, plankton and other marine life, as well as the creatures on land that consume them (including humans3).

More than 300 million tons of plastic are produced globally annually — and that was before mask-wearing became a daily habit. Most of it ends up as waste in the environment, leading researchers from the University of Southern Denmark and Princeton University to warn that masks could quickly become “the next plastic problem.”4

Why Disposable Masks May Be Even Worse Than Plastic Bottles

The bottled water crisis is now well-known as a leading source of environmental plastic pollution, but it’s slated to be outpaced by a new mask crisis. While about 25% of plastic bottles are recycled, “there is no official guidance on mask recycle, making it more likely to be disposed of as solid waste,” the researchers stated. “With increasing reports on inappropriate disposal of masks, it is urgent to recognize this potential environmental threat.”5

Not only are masks not being recycled, but their materials make them likely to persist and accumulate in the environment. Most disposable face masks contain three layers — a polyester outer layer, a polypropylene or polystyrene middle layer and an inner layer made of absorbent material such as cotton.

Polypropylene is already one of the most problematic plastics, as it’s widely produced and responsible for large waste accumulation in the environment, as well as being a known asthma trigger.6 Further,

Masks ‘don’t work,’ are damaging health and are being used to control population: Doctors panel

February 19, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) – Masks “don’t work,” reveal a panel of doctors in LifeSiteNews’ recent “Unmasking COVID-19,” conference, who warned about how mask mandates are being used to bring about “Nazi-like” control of the populace.

As part of the LifeSiteNews unique event, Dr. Sheri TenpennyDr. Eric Nepute and Dr. Pam Popper formed a panel discussion dealing with the issues of masks and vaccines, in which they highlighted the errors in the mainstream narrative, which promotes the wearing of masks almost everywhere. 

Masks ‘don’t work’

“The only randomized control studies that have ever been done on masks show that they don’t work,” began Dr. Nepute. He referred to Dr. Anthony Fauci’s “noble lie,” in which Fauci “changed his tune,” from his March 2020 comments, where he downplayed the need and efficacy of mask wearing, before urging Americans to use masks later in the year.

 “Well, he lied to us. So if he lied about that, what else has he lied to you about?” questioned Nepute.

Masks have become commonplace in almost every setting, whether indoors or outdoors, but Dr. Popper mentioned how there have been “no studies” which actually examine the “effect of wearing a mask during all your waking hours.”

“There’s no science to back any of this and particularly no science to back the fact that wearing a mask twenty four-seven or every waking minute, is health promoting,” added Popper.

“There’s no data, there’s no research that supports that wearing a mask is beneficial. In fact, if you look at the data that’s been coming out, it’s quite the contrary,” stated Nepute.

Biden’s ‘100 Days’ Of Masks Transforms Into Masks ‘Through The Next Year’

12-02-21 11:16:00,

Anyone traveling to Britain from a country on the government’s ‘red list’ must quarantine in a hotel (which they will have to pay for), and have THREE COVID tests, under draconian new laws being implemented by the government.

The unprecedented and sweeping new rules were announced by Health Secretary Matt Hancock, who said that he makes ‘no apologies’ for such severe measures.

From Monday anyone entering the country will have to pass three PCR tests in order to be allowed any freedom inside the country after they have completed a ten day quarantine at a government selected hotel, at a cost of almost two thousand pounds.

Security guards will be stationed throughout the hotels, with police on standby if those inside try to leave before their release date.

Hancock said that anyone caught breaking their quarantine could be fined ten thousand pounds, while anyone caught lying about coming from a COVID ‘hotspot’ could be jailed for up to a decade.

Even those not coming from one of the 33 ‘red list’ countries, and arriving from elsewhere, will have to test negative before being allowed to travel, then quarantine at their home address for ten days and allow authorities to ‘check that they are obeying the rules’.

COVID tests, which cost more than £100 each, will be required on day two and day eight of isolation, and must be booked through a new government portal in advance of travel, according to the new law.

If the tests are positive, a further ten day quarantine will be mandated.

Failure to comply with the testing will incur fines of £1,000 the first time, and £2,000 the second time. 

Hancock noted “This includes a £1,000 penalty for any international arrival who fails to take a mandatory test, a £2,000 penalty for any international arrival who fails to take the second mandatory test, as well as automatically extending their quarantine period to 14 days, and a £5,000 fixed penalty notice – rising to £10,000 – for arrivals who fail to quarantine in a designated hotel.”

Anyone hoping to escape the crackdown via booking travel through a budget or less thorough carrier will likely be disappointed as Hancock announced that “Passenger carriers will have a duty in law to make sure that passengers have signed up for these new arrangements before they travel,

Masks, false safety and real dangers – Dr. Colleen Huber — Potkaars – praat met iedereen

24-11-20 03:37:00,

Colleen Huber with co-authors has researched the health risks of mouth masks in three different peer reviewed papers. The third one just released is going into Hypoxia, hypercapnia and their physiological effects on the human body.

In this interview Dr. Huber explains what happens when you hinder breathing by prolonged wearing or a cover over your mouth and nose. In all our evolution this has never happened before. The reduced availability of oxygen you need to take in and the excess levels of CO2 you can’t get out are acute, measurable and have negative health effects both short and long term, which Dr. Huber explains.

The previous interview discussed part two of the research: ‘microbial challenges from masks’ and together with the first paper about lung vulnerability to Friable mask particulate, a complete picture is painted.

Imagine breathing in particles released from a mouth mask. Imagine breathing them in more deeply than you normally would, as breathing is obstructed, taking those particles deeper into your lungs.

You are breathing more deeply because you are hindered by a mask. Your body will adjust -or get used- to a lower level of oxygen and a higher level of CO2, but it comes with a price. Your body’s ability to filter out such particles is reduced by the elevated levels of CO2 in your system.

Imagine not only breathing in particles (part one of the research) but also bacteria that would normally be exhaled but are now caught in the mouth mask that is warm and moist. These factors combined would explain why in the Spanish flu era Dr. Fauci found people died from bacterial Pneumonia, rather than a viral infection.

Mention Fauci and you get banned from YouTube, like Potkaars was after the previous interview.

Mention elevated CO2 levels in tissue being a catalyst for cancer and you get banned from Twitter, as Dr. Huber experienced.

Both interviews are available in full on platforms that do not censor, and in part on YouTube.

Masks Are a Political Agenda, Not a Protection Against Covid or Flu – PaulCraigRoberts.org

Masks Are a Political Agenda, Not a Protection Against Covid or Flu

Paul Craig Roberts

This 39-minute interview with two experts is the best information available on the efficacy and dangers of masks.  As I have reported from the beginning, unless the mask is N95 it provides zero protection against inhalation and exhalation of viruses:   https://thehighwire.com/videos/mask-whistleblowers-tell-all/  

All masks raise C02 levels, reduce oxygen levels, and, if you are infected, increase the viral load that you are breathing.  If a N95 mask has an exhalation valve, the C02 and contaminant levels are lower, but if you are infected the mask does not protect others from your exhalation of the virus:  https://multimedia.3m.com/mws/media/1794572O/surgical-n95-vs-standard-n95-which-to-consider.pdf 

A N95 provides a tight fit unlike the masks people are wearing.  Without an exhalation valve, a N95 would build up C02 and contaminant levels quicker and higher.  I find it impossible to wear a N95 mask for more than one hour. According to OSHA standards, people are supposed to be individually tested before being assigned a mask as some are more damaged by masks than others.

These facts are well known by experts, so why are masks being imposed by political authorities and why has OSHA turned its back on its own scientifically based requirements?  

The answer is that masks are a political agenda and have been weaponized against the people.  The same for lockdowns.

Moreover, there is no basis in law for the mask and lockdown mandates.  These are arbitrary illegal actions.  In Michigan the state supreme court has overturned the tyrannical governor’s lockdown/mask mandates.

The American people have paid a high price for being uninformed or misinformed by presstitutes and the agendas being served by the Covid virus.
