New Face Mask Harms and COVID Vaccines Approved Without Any Clinical Trials
4/26/23...There are a number of new papers out about face masks that are worth reading...The time is past for the CDC to come clean and admit that they were wrong about face masks. It is systemic child abuse by the US Government to continue to advocate that children wear masks. We have hard data that masks are ineffective at stopping the spread of COVID-19 and other respiratory diseases. We have hard data that the adverse events from mask wearing are significant and some of those may be permanent. We have hard data that mask mandates on children in schools did nothing to stop the spread of COVID-19. Their website needs to be updated immediately to reflect the science on face mask use.

Harms of Mask-Wearing Misdiagnosed As "Long Covid," New Meta-Analysis and Systematic Review Indicates
4/12/23...A newly published meta-analysis and systematic review on mask-wearing confirms what commonsense dictates, namely, they do significant harm by interfering with normal human breathing (O2 and CO2 gas exchange), and even more astounding, may be causing symptoms that are being misidentified as "Long Covid." Read more.
A definitive study from the Cochrane Collaboration has solidified the uselessness of masking to prevent COVID-19 and other illnesses. However, more studies now show both vitamin D and exercise as cheap, empowering and extremely effective strategies against COVID.
Cochran Review: Face Masks Are Useless In Stopping Covid-19
2/10/23...The Cochran Institute, a collaboration of international researchers recognized as the highest standard in evidence-based healthcare reviews, recently reported they found no reliable data to support that face masks prevent the spread of COVID-19. Led by Tom Jefferson, Senior Associate Tutor at the University of Oxford, the study highlights the haphazard and unsubstantiated manner in which the Biden administration and other governments around the world failed society by demanding—with no proof to back up their tyranny—that every man, woman, and child cover their faces, get an experimental mRNA injection, or risk killing their loved ones. Read more.
Lead author of new Cochrane review speaks out
"There is just no evidence that they (masks) make any difference. Full stop. My job, our job as a review team, was to look at the evidence, we have done that..."
2/5/23...Tom Jefferson, senior associate tutor at the University of Oxford, is the lead author of a recent Cochrane review that has ‘gone viral’ on social media and re-ignited one of the most divisive debates during the pandemic - face masks...The updated review titled “Physical interventions to interrupt or reduce the spread of acute respiratory viruses” found that wearing masks in the community probably makes little or no difference to influenza-like or covid-19-like illness transmission. Read more.
Masking Children in the Name of Protection:
The Dangers of Prolonged Use
2/2/23...Since 2020, when COVID-19 kicked off a flurry of rules in the name of public health, masking everyone—including young children—has been painted by authorities as a commonsense, risk-free measure to prevent the spread of infection among society. However, we must consider the downsides to concealing a major portion of children’s faces—especially when they’re prone to nearly zero risk of serious illness. Read more.
Rigorous international study of N95 masks upends
federal COVID narrative
12/2/22...a new peer-reviewed, randomized controlled trial (RCT) of N95s versus surgical masks, considered the midrange of protection, is undermining the late federal pivot to higher-quality masks and calls to reimpose mask mandates in schools, among other settings. Read more.
Masks Now Found to Contain 2B Carcinogen
10/26/22...The face masks that were supposed to protect your health may turn out to be detrimental to it, as increasing evidence points to toxins within their bers. Titanium dioxide is one such toxin, one that’s particularly troubling in face masks because it’s a suspected human carcinogen when inhaled. Read more.
Is a Mask That Covers the Mouth and Nose Free from Undesirable Side Effects in Everyday Use and Free of Potential Hazards?
International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health
Review published 4/20/21
Many countries introduced the requirement to wear masks in public spaces for containing SARS-CoV-2 making it commonplace in 2020. Up until now, there has been no comprehensive investigation as to the adverse health effects masks can cause. The aim was to find, test, evaluate and compile scientifically proven related side effects of wearing masks...The literature revealed relevant adverse effects of masks in numerous disciplines. In this paper, we refer to the psychological and physical deterioration as well as multiple symptoms described because of their consistent, recurrent and uniform presentation from different disciplines as a Mask-Induced Exhaustion Syndrome (MIES)…Extended mask-wearing by the general population could lead to relevant effects and consequences in many medical fields. Read more.
See page 30 for adverse effects to pregnant women and children.
A New Low in Mask Studies
8/1/22...Ian Miller, Author of Unmasked: The Global Failure of COVID Mask Mandates
"What’s remarkable about this review is that the authors discredit their own work almost immediately. The poor quality writing is readily apparent, both from their repeated phrasing of “facemasks” as one word, and the fact that of 1,732 studies considered for inclusion, only 13 actually met the criteria." Read more.
A Very Important New Study on School Masking
School masking has undoubtedly been one of the COVID’s most infuriating issues. The case for masking by the general public has quite obviously always been weak, considering there was no pre-pandemic planning that suggested masking would ever be beneficial...But the case to mask children has always been significantly worse. Read more.
New Study Challenges CDC Evidence on School Masking
6/1/22...David Waugh, Managing Editor, American Institute for Economic Research
The results of this study demonstrate, with more data and robustness than the CDC’s own paper, that masks in schools are an ineffective tool against COVID-19. The CDC’s decision not to publish this study in their journal only further discredits the agency. Read more.
Revisiting Pediatric COVID-19 Cases in Counties With and Without School Mask Requirements—United States, July 1—October 20 2021
5/25/22...Background: There has been considerable debate around mask requirements in schools in the United States and other countries during the Covid-19 pandemic. To date, there have been no randomized controlled trials of mask requirements in children. All analyses of the effectiveness of school mask mandates have relied on observational studies. The Centers for Disease Control in the U.S. have released multiple observational studies suggesting that school mask mandates significantly reduce case rates. However, there have also been numerous additional US and international observational studies finding no significant effect of school mask mandates on pediatric cases. Read more.
Systemic Harms to our Children
7/11/22...Robert W. Malone, MD, MS
...We have to protect our precious children. We have to protect their physical and mental health. We have to ensure that they have every opportunity to develop normally...Our children are still being forced to wear masks if they are very young or in many areas in the USA. That is eight hours of continuous mask use while at school or in the case of summer camps, it could literally mean 24 hours a day. Just think about that. This is not ok. The HHS can not be allowed to continue to require and/or recommend the use masks for children. Click here to read more and for compilation of studies on face mask safety and efficacy.
Are Face Masks Effective? The Evidence.
Updated: June 2022...First Published: July 30, 2020

Masking: More Harms than Good?
Face masks make the disease worse, and have no impact on ocular infection risk
6/1/22...Robert W. Malone, MD, MS
The Foegen effect
A mechanism by which facemarks contribute to the COVID-19 case fatality rate
The most important finding from this study is that contrary to the accepted thought that fewer people are dying because infection rates are reduced by masks, this was not the case. Results from this study strongly suggest that mask mandates actually caused about 1.5 times the number of deaths or ∼50% more deaths compared to no mask mandates...A rationale for the increased RR by mandating masks is probably that virions that enter or those coughed out in droplets are retained in the facemask tissue, and after quick evaporation of the droplets, hypercondensed droplets or pure virions (virions not inside a droplet) are re-inhaled from a very short distance during inspiration. This process will be referred to as the “Foegen effect” because a review of the literature did not yield any results on this effect, which has not been described earlier. Read more.
Stop Masking Children...They Need To Interact With The Microbial World
5/31/22...Dr. Byrum W. Bridle...Isolating children from the microbial world promotes the development of chronic diseases...basic immunological principles suggest that very young children that had to endure COVID-19 lockdown policies might be faced with the highest rates of autoimmune diseases, allergies, and asthma in human history.

Instead of Admitting Mask Mandates Harm Kids, CDC Lowers Expectations for Speech Development
3/7/22...The CDC needs to just stop with this nonsense of making abnormal = normal, and start looking into what is negatively affecting our children’s development...We can only assume the national implementation of mask mandates for the past two years has much to do with our current situation...Here is how mask-wearing affects speech and language development: Read more.

Face masks – the risks vs benefits for children
Face masks for children were introduced around the world at various points during 2020 using the comforting slogan, ‘I protect you. You protect me,’ along with assurances that masks would only be temporary – to flatten the curve. Today in many schools, masks for children continue to be uniformly mandated despite evidence that suggests that their risks outweigh any potential benefits for children. Read more.
Are masks effective for Covid-19? What the science says…
Masking has become common in many places around the world during the Covid-19 pandemic. Many workplaces, public spaces, school districts, and even child care facilities have enacted mask mandates as a means of slowing the spread of the Covid-19 virus. At no time in history has the general population ever worn masks for extended periods of time and in such a variety of contexts. This raises many questions for parents, concerned citizens, and medical experts around the world as to whether masks are effective, safe, and necessary. In this article, we will address those questions using the latest scientific and medical data. Read more.
"God designed us to be as healthy as possible in our natural environment. When exhaling viruses, they would generally be exposed to sunlight or would land on surfaces which were not conducive to their continued existence. Besides concentrating viruses on masks, which we would then touch and handle, raising the level of viruses on our hands, we are also concentrating them on our faces, where they might easily be re-inhaled."

Nazism, COVID-19 and the destruction of modern medicine: A Conversation with Vera Sharav
Updated March 21, 2021
At the age of six, Holocaust Survivor Vera Sharav refused to do as she was told. Ultimately, that refusal saved her life.
In a recent Stand for Freedom interview, Vera Sharav who is the President & Founder of Alliance for Human Research Protection, shares her personal story and draws parallels between Nazi Germany (including how the regime conducted medical experiments on children and adults) and what’s happening in our world today. Scroll down for part one of this chilling interview.
“…adults are not rebelling against things that are wrong. People are being pushed around, denied normal interaction; and they’re just following it like sheep. There’s something very wrong. Part of what’s wrong is the idea of just following authority without considering, what if they’re wrong? What if it’s not in my best interest?”
In the interview, Ms. Sharav states that babies receive tetanus shots. She meant to say that newborns receive the Hepatitis B vaccine; DTaP (diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis) is administered two months later.
“If you deny the human individual the right to think and question and assess and make decisions based on their own judgement and experience then you are creating robots.”
