Updated November 20, 2020
We've all heard the adage, "Your mask protects me. My mask protects you." We also get almost daily reports from mainstream media that Covid-19 "cases" are on the rise and more lockdowns may be coming, As a long time truth seeker, I question the efficacy and safety of masks -- especially for our children -- and whether any possible benefit is greater than the physical, mental, emotional, psychological and even spiritual harm they can and do cause.
Below, for your consideration, are several articles, videos and links to studies, along with two World Health Organization videos on the proper use and wearing of medical and cloth face masks. I also encourage you to access, "Can face masks harm the healthy" and "Masks don't control viruses; they control you."
Danish Mask Study; No Benefit
Published on Swiss Policy Research, November 18, 2020
The Danish randomized controlled trial on the real-world efficacy of face masks against coronavirus infection – the first of its kind – has now been published in the Annals of Internal Medicine. As expected, the trial found no statistically significant benefit of wearing a face mask. The study used “high-quality surgical masks with a filtration rate of 98%”.
US researcher Yinon Weiss has meanwhile updated his charts on mask mandates and coronavirus infections in various countries and US states. The charts indicate that mask mandates have made no difference, or may even have been counterproductive. Read more.

Face Masks: A Danger to Our Planet, Our Children & Ourselves
by Cory Morningstar, November 6, 2020
...In June 2020, the Children’s Sick Kids Hospital, perhaps the most prestigious hospital in Canada, advised that children, by and large almost completely unaffected by the virus, should not wear masks and added that physical interaction and play was essential for their well-being...These recommendations were largely ignored by the media and, despite the warnings, the government and school boards made masks and social distancing mandatory for children.

Masks Delay Inevitable Acceptance of COVID-19 Reality
Analysis by Dr. Joseph Mercola, November 14, 2020
The most recent evidence of all, which would bring us quite a bit closer to settling the argument about masks is a Danish randomized controlled trial of 6,000 people that sought to prove the usefulness of face masks against COVID-19 infection. The problem appears to be that it didn't, because the researchers can't get it published...According to the researchers, the study will be published as soon as "someone dares to do so." Considering the argument against mask wearing has been the lack of evidence, if this COVID-19 specific trial actually shows that it works, why would journals refuse to publish it?...A cursory translation of the study, which is currently only available in German, reveals that it found mask wearing resulted in tens of millions of contaminations that can occur each day as people use the masks inappropriately, touch their faces and neglect to wash their hands...Read more.
Is that Mask Giving You Lung Cancer? It’s Criminal to Force Children to Wear Masks all Day
by Guy Crittenden, Posted on Health Impact News, October 27, 2020
I happen to know a thing or two about masks and safety. Why? Because for 25 years I was the editor of an award-winning trade magazine called HazMat Management that covered such topics as pollution prevention and compliance with health & safety laws. We routinely published articles on masks, gloves, respirators and other forms of personal protective equipment (PPE). Now let me tell you a few things about that mask you’re wearing. Read more.

Professor: Large Danish mask study rejected by three top journals
The researchers behind a large and unique Danish study on the effect of wearing a mask have great difficulties in getting their research results published. One of the participating professors in the study concedes that the still secret research result could be considered ‘controversial’. Read more.

An Evidence Based Scientific Analysis of Why Masks are Ineffective, Unnecessary, and Harmful
Decades of the highest-level scientific evidence (meta-analyses of multiple randomized controlled trials) overwhelmingly conclude that medical masks are ineffective at preventing the transmission of respiratory viruses, including SAR-CoV-2. Read more.
The Risk to Benefit Ratio of Wearing Masks
Because the public has been deprived of information related to the risks of medical masks, I (and many others) have endeavored to provide that information and make a case for why medical masking of the community is an unscientific bad idea. Read more.
Healthy People Should Not Wear Face Masks
During the COVID-19 pandemic, public health experts began telling us to follow a number of disease mitigation strategies that sounded reasonably scientific, but actually had little or no support in the scientific literature. Community wearing of masks was one of the more dangerous recommendations from our confused public health experts. Read more.
"If masks don't work, then why do surgeons wear them?"
I'm a surgeon that has performed over 10,000 surgical procedures wearing a surgical mask…First, let's be clear. The premise that surgeons wearing masks serves as evidence that "masks must work to prevent viral transmission" is a logical fallacy that I would classify as an argument of false equivalence, or comparing "apples to oranges." Although surgeons do wear masks to prevent their respiratory droplets from contaminating the surgical field and the exposed internal tissues of our surgical patients, that is about as far as the analogy extends.

No, the Science on Universal Mask Use is Not Settled
by Jeremy R. Hammond, September 23, 2020
...As a newly appointed member of the White House coronavirus task force, Atlas has “argued over the science of mask wearing.” ...the view expressed by Dr. Atlas is precisely the same as the mask guidance from no less authoritative a source than the World Health Organization, which likewise recommends the use of masks in certain circumstances when prolonged close contact with others is unavoidable while also observing that policies recommending or mandating the universal use of masks by the public are unsupported by scientific evidence.

Do facemasks protect against COVID‐19
Journal of Paediatrics and Child Health, June 2020
...Surgical facemasks are designed to be discarded after single use. As they become moist they become porous and no longer protect. Indeed, experiments have shown that surgical and cotton masks do not trap the SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) virus, which can be detected on the outer surface of the masks for up to 7 days. Thus, a presymptomatic or mildly infected person wearing a facemask for hours without changing it and without washing hands every time they touched the mask could paradoxically increase the risk of infecting others.

Conclusion Regarding Masks They Do Not Work
by Dr. Sherri Tenpenny, DO, AOBNMM, ABIHM
There are NO randomized, controlled trials (RCT) with verified outcomes that show a benefit to healthcare workers or community members for wearing a mask or a respirator. There is no such definitive study. Likewise, no study exists that shows a benefit from a broad policy to wear masks in public (documented below). Read more.
The Great Unmasking: Studies in the Medical Literature Show FEWER Infections in Surgery when Medical Staff Do NOT Wear Masks
Posted on Health Impact News, August 15, 2020
Beliefs are interesting things. Those who make a conscious effort to look at why they believe something as true, will usually find that more than 90% of the time, we believe something to be true because someone we respect told us so, or such a large group of people believe it to be true that we just assume it to be true as well. Seldom is it because we took the time ourselves to do the actual research to see if our beliefs actually align with the data that is available. Read more.
Horowitz: Exposing the maskerade: The questions every American should be asking about indefinite mask mandates
by Daniel Horowitz · July 24, 2020
To this day, there has never been a clinical study with randomized controlled trials in non-health-care settings that vouch for the effectiveness of universal mask-wearing in public. All we have so far are anecdotes and laboratory filtration studies, not real human-to-human studies. When asked about conducting one, Dr. Fauci said there is no intention to do so. Read more.
