NEWS JUNKIES -- CHECK OUT OUR HOMEPAGE


 

A massive Danish study on mask usage found no statistically significant difference in coronavirus infection rates between mask-wearers and non-mask-wearers. In fact, according to the data, mask usage may actually increase the likelihood of infection.

I’m always amused at the term “The Science”. Historically, science has been comprised of various perspectives and this idea of complete consensus, whether it’s masks, global warming (I mean climate change), et cetera, is a 20th/21st century phenom. That is to say, science is rarely in agreement about anything. To buy this line of crap that we are supposed to go with what the media says about “The science” and never question anything, would be offensive to real scientists.

Straight up say mask wearing is dangerous and ignore any authority that tells you to wear the deadly mask.

I believe hubby could. A few months ago he was admitted in the hospital for an infection. it started at the lower outer part of his eye and the swelling stopped at his cheek. Discharged with a PICC. He did not have covid.

We had been out quite a bit prior to that.(otherwise homebodies)…mask off and on constantly throughout the day. I wondered if he could have touched his eye in any way during that time.

Further, he shouldn’t wear a full mask, he has an autoimmune problem where rubber or things tight can create and exasperate skin problems, esp around the hairline. (hats are okay, they’re loose)

And I’ve seen his oxygen level drop to 84 with a mask. He’s got a very weak ticker.

Despite all of the above, don’t think anyone other than one’s personal physician should be telling or recommending a person to wear a mask.

Nor is science static. The scientific method requires large numbers to establish validity statistically…it takes time and numbers so It changes over time, what we know today is not what we will know 6 mos or two years from now. Mass hysteria is a well documented psychological phenomenon. Appeal to peoples emotions, especially induce fear and you can turn ordinarily sober rational individuals into blithering idiots.
History is replete with examples.

After breathing thru the mask for three / four breaths – it is only partially functional from that point on. The wearing is psychological only…..PLUS, the VIRUS can be transferred thru your eyes. So wear a full BODY glove! Show nothing! Be sheep-like in your behavior – as NO scientist knows what exactly you should be dressed up in.
Fauci is not an epidemiologist and has to be told, like the rest of us. what should be done. We’ve, so far, been led by ‘hopeist’s and prayerist’s’- having ‘no clueisms’ as to what to do.

It’s only science if it fits their narrative. Here is a study published on the CDC website that evaluated, among other factors, the effectiveness of cloth masks in preventing the transmission of influenza. The study reported that:

“Disposable medical masks (also known as surgical masks) are loose-fitting devices that were designed to be worn by medical personnel to protect accidental contamination of patient wounds, and to protect the wearer against splashes or sprays of bodily fluids (36). There is limited evidence for their effectiveness in preventing influenza virus transmission either when worn by the infected person for source control or when worn by uninfected persons to reduce exposure. Our systematic review found no significant effect of face masks on transmission of laboratory-confirmed influenza.” Published in May 2020.

Space is both the ‘Last Frontier’ and a location between the ears.
In order not to be taken lightly – he seems to have said virtually everything that could be said about how to handle this VIRUS – both right and wrong, mostly wrong(?)….JMHO!

The way to avoid viruses is to wash your hands and keep them away from your face. How many times are we touching our faces putting on and taking off these stupid masks? I am a RN and have worked in ICU’s for years. Health care professionals know masks don’t work. Hospitals fit each of their employees with HEPA filtered masks which do work. These flimsy paper masks and cloth masks only keep the exudate one may cough up contained. The mask mandate is all bulls***

By now everyone has already been exposed to the virus. The fact that cases are rising and death rates are flat is proof of that. The only thing rising is testing rates.

I think this study is being misrepresented. The COVID infection rate was 1.8% in those randomized to wear masks and 2.1% in the control subjects. The difference was far from statistically significant and was not clinically important, so wearing a mask did not give a meaningful benefit, but the study did not show a trend for an increased risk of getting COVID in the group assigned to wear masks. The trend for reduced risk of catching COVID was in favor of the group assigned to wear masks.

I’m sitting in my car outside a market in North California, observing how many customers are wearing masks. Newsom locked the county down because there was 1 death last week. Their age and health was not disclosed. It was the very 1st death in one of the largest counties in California that is larger than several US states. And is conservative. Most have never worn masks.
The employees in the market are not, have not been wearing masks since about June. There is plexiglass and hand cleaner, however.
As of today, Restaurants and bars are only allowed to serve outside. Lile that’s going to work in winter. Its 38 degrees with 20 mph winds today. It snowed last night.
And a study was released today that shows masks do not work, but instead , increase the rate of infection.
The insanity will continue, and get worse, unless we stand up and support President Trump.

Several recent articles have indicated that the nose is much more likely to be the initial infection site than the lungs. Consequently, several companies are testing nose sprays that promise to prevent COVID-19 infections. This begs the question: Would we be better off only breathing through our mouths when in public (with or without masks) until the the preventative sprays or vaccine is available? If it works, it might prevent more infections than masks. The CDC told me they did not have enough information to answer this question. I think with its potential, it is worthy of a study.

It takes a special kind of mind to actually think a piece of cloth in front of your nose and mouth will prevent any type of virus infection. Surgeons wear surgical masks so their resperatory droplets do not spread bacteria, bacteria is a lot larger than viruses and surgical masks are not effective at all in stopping the spread of viruses, if the surgeon in question has a virus he wouldn’t be performing the surgery in the first place.

What’s so funny is that there is actually masks that have been proven effective in stopping the spread of viruses and it isn’t the little piece of cloth they give you at Target………… it is the type of masks that you literally can’t buy anymore because they are all reserved for hospitals or were secretely shipped in mass to other countries like Israel earlier this year while we have a massive shortage, N99 and N95 masks.

If you actually want to protect yourself somewhat against COVID and aren’t a mindless sheep there is still a type of N95 mask you can still purchase, KN95 masks. They are manufactuered in China unfortunately and they also follow a seperate rating system from N99 and N95 masks but they have been proven to be almost as effective as U.S. made N95 masks and they are the only thing you can really get right now. Just make sure you are buying from a reputable brand because China is just chock-full of low quality off brand garbage.

“While the donning of face coverings during this [Spanish] influenza crisis may appeal to many, its benefits in reducing the spread of infection is dubious.  The only benefit realized, is that it reduces the number of men who chew tobacco, from spitting on the streets.  Beyond that, the only other benefit realized, is that it makes our citizens constantly aware of the crisis at hand.”

Not “may”, DO. Don’t have to be a doctor to figure out that whatever potential health problem you may have will increase with the two major things a mask does that is DETREMENTAL to your health. There they are:

1. Less Oxygen (most important thing a human needs to live. Period.
2. Traps whatver small amount of what your healthy body is trying to expel.

Common sense is being outlawed and doctors took WAY too long to speak up about this. Most medical schools, law schools, private universities are run by jews. That’s why there are so many jewish doctors, lawyers. They give licenses and diplomas to their own while not passing the ones that express opinions through their educational “careers” they find to be a potential threat to their control. Doctors are the single most effective way for the jews to control the goyim.

So the few goyim doctors shut up about CV for fear of losing their licenses. Well, in Europe, they are speaking up because they are realizing that global socialized medicine is being implemented and they will never make the kind of money they used to. Too late? Probably.

Ever wonder how some students can party all of the time, are involved in frats and sororities and have nice cars and live in nice accomodations and somehow pass all of their classes? They are jews or the children of high ranking jewish ass kissing freemasons.

The massive study had no way of verifying that the masks were properly worn or worn at all. People commonly touch their masks, voiding any protection they might provide. Some people said they wore them some of the time; others that they wore them almost all of the time. You cannot get undisputed data and results from what cannot be accurately measured. There is much more evidence regarding the effectiveness of masks at intercepting viruses and reducing the viral load someone is exposed to, a simple search can find these studies and their details. I am not trying to prove any presumptions; I want the truth on these matters. Now that there are many more studies to consider and learn from, we will need to modify our positions on masks. Yes even the medical folks are learning from this virus, and changing – thankfully! We cannot cherry pick in our search for the truth. I do not believe the medical community is conspiring to defraud us about masks,. Other than telling us in the beginning not to use them, because they needed the limited supplies, and didn’t think the virus would be that wide spread… They are doing their best We are all human, and most of us are doing the best we can.
