Surgical Masks Are Even Worse Than We Thought

Another damning study about masks. A new study shows that surgical masks used during the pandemic contain all manner of toxic chemicals.

The study was published in April and shared by the National Institute of Health but surprisingly received very little media coverage. We’ll take a look as new mask mandates begin to pop up though!

The study looked at the amount of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in Covid masks. They found that single-use masks had concentrations of toxins 22.9-147 times higher than cloth masks. Only, cloth masks have shown to be ineffective at blocking out Covid particles.

According to the Daily Mail, these toxins have been linked to health issues such as “headaches and nausea, while prolonged and repeated has been linked to organ damage and even cancer.”

What’s worse, when the weather was hot, the single-use masks had “TVOC concentrations increased by 119-299%.”

We sent children to school and sports in these masks for days on end and don’t say we didn’t know. There were already studies showing that masks could be toxic to children before the pandemic. We just shamed people for saying so.
