NIH Mask Study: Covid Masks Expose Wearers to Dangerous Levels of Toxic Compounds Linked to Seizures & Cancer
We have covered the issue of facemasks before. These are not even used in hospitals in the manner that they were being mandated on the population. We covered the environmental and health risks in this two-part series that you can read here and here. Even the alleged “long Covid” has been linked to mask usage. Additionally, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention misrepresented their data in order to get behind mask mandates in 2020. Of course, some propagandists learned the hard way after it became clear masks were harming children’s development. So, the question comes up: Why are there rumors of forthcoming mask mandates, especially when we are not even dealing with a respiratory illness due to the CDC looking in the most unexpected place to determine where the CONvids will break out next? Well, consider that a National Institutes for Health mask study has even determined that those who wear these masks are exposed to dangerous levels of toxic compounds that are linked to seizures and cancer. Surprise!

The surgical N95 mask has been held up as the gold standard when it comes to protecting against Covid.
But a study quietly re-shared by the National Institutes of Health in spring suggests the tight-fitting mask may expose users to dangerous levels of toxic chemicals.
Researchers from Jeonbuk National University in South Korea looked at two types of disposable medical-grade masks, as well as several reusable cotton masks.
The study found that the chemicals released by these masks had eight times the recommended safety limit of toxic volatile organic compounds (TVOCs).
Inhaling TVOCs has been linked to health issues like headaches and nausea, while prolonged and repeated has been linked to organ damage and even cancer.
A study published in April found that several disposable masks contain more than eight times the US recommended limit of toxic volatile organic compounds (TVOCs)
Samples A1 through B3 represent disposable masks, whereas samples C1 through E4 are cloth masks. Disposable masks had up to 14 times more TVOCs than cloth masks
‘It is clear that particular attention must be paid to the VOCs associated with the use of KF94 [medical] masks their effects on human health,’ the researchers wrote in the study published April.
However, there are ways to reduce the danger, they said. ‘Exposure can be significantly reduced if a mask is opened and left to sit for at least 30 min,’ the researchers wrote.
This suggests that the packaging of these masks could play a role in the amount of chemicals they have.
The study was published in the journal Ecotoxicology and Environmental Safety and on the NIH’s website.
The NIH said: ‘Inclusion in an NLM database does not imply endorsement of, or agreement with, the contents by NLM or the National Institutes of Health.’
The researchers found that the levels of TVOCs were 14 times lower in cloth masks and didn’t pose a risk to human health.
However, the study did not measure the effect of people actually wearing the masks.
Dr Stuart Fischer, an internal medicine physician in New York, told DailyMail.com that strong conclusions couldn’t be drawn from the study.
However, he did say that increasingly evidence has shown the drawbacks of mask-wearing. He added that ‘there seems to be diminishing returns on the need for masks.’
In the latest study, researchers tested 14 disposable and cloth masks purchased online by measuring the amount of TVOCs in them. The disposable masks were KFAD and KF94 models, which were made from thermoplastics polypropylene and polyurethane nylon.
These masks have been popularized in South Korea, where the study was conducted, whereas KN95s are more popular in the US.
However, their differences are miniscule. KFADs and KF94s filter 94 percent of particles, while KN95s filter 95 percent.
The cloth masks were made from cotton, ramie – a vegetable fiber – and polyurethane.
‘These TVOC concentration levels corresponded to a level that is harmless to the human body (no relevant health-related concerns),’ the researchers wrote.
However, the disposable masks contained up to 14 times the TVOCs than cotton masks.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommends keeping TVOC levels below 0.5 parts per million in indoor air.
The sample with the highest amount of TVOCs had 4,808 cubic meters per microgram, which is about 4.8 parts per million.
Andrew Boston rightly points out, “Unfazed by data, scientific research, or common sense, the maskaholics are back…It’s tempting to compare them with the villagers in Cambodia who erected scarecrows in front of their huts to ward off the coronavirus—but that’s not fair to the villagers.”

John Tierney also chides those imposing mask mandates in light of actual, real science.
In response to an uptick in Covid cases, they’ve begun reinstating mask mandates. So far, it’s just a few places—a college in Atlanta, a Hollywood studio, two hospitals in Syracuse—but the mainstream media and their favorite “experts” are working hard to scare the rest of us into masking up yet again.
Never mind that at least 97 percent of Americans have Covid antibodies in their blood as a result of infection, vaccination, or both. Never mind that actual experts—the ones who studied the scientific literature before 2020 and drew up plans for a pandemic—advised against masking the public. Never mind that their advice has been further bolstered during the pandemic by randomized clinical trials and rigorous observational studies failing to find an effect of masks and mask mandates. Scientific evidence cannot overcome the maskaholics’ faith.
