Another Study on the Dangers of Mask Wearing

Dr. Baruch Vainshelboim, of the Cardiology Division, Veterans Affairs Palo Alto Health Care System/Stanford University, has published a new paper, Facemasks in the COVID-19 era: A health hypothesis.

From the conclusion:

The existing scientific evidences challenge the safety and efficacy of wearing facemask as preventive intervention for COVID-19. The data suggest that both medical and non-medical facemasks are ineffective to block human-to-human transmission of viral and infectious disease such SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19, supporting against the usage of facemasks. Wearing facemasks has been demonstrated to have substantial adverse physiological and psychological effects. These include hypoxia, hypercapnia, shortness of breath, increased acidity and toxicity, activation of fear and stress response, rise in stress hormones, immunosuppression, fatigue, headaches, decline in cognitive performance, predisposition for viral and infectious illnesses, chronic stress, anxiety and depression. Long-term consequences of wearing facemask can cause health deterioration, developing and progression of chronic diseases and premature death. Governments, policy makers and health organizations should utilize prosper and scientific evidence-based approach with respect to wearing facemasks, when the latter is considered as preventive intervention for public health.

Key graphic in the paper:



  1. And this study, along with the Danish study, will be consigned to the dust bin of history. It'll have the same chance of being nationally published as would an Austrian economics paper in the NYT.

  2. Not that Ai disagree with your point but it is published at the site provided by the link and downloadable for free from there in PDF form.
    Whether or not it will be referenced by say a mainstream “news at 6” kind of thing is doubtful but it is ammunition for the greater battle which may end in courts, etc.
    And having more of “the science” as they like to say to shove in people’s diapered faces is always helpful. Personally I have several thousand pages of data to this affect enough that even the loudest Karen would choke on all of it.

  3. I think the best play for getting rid of masks would be to somehow make wearing a mask racist, which is the second most evil thing to be in the world right now.
