Masks and respirators do not work.
There have been extensive randomized controlled trial (RCT) studies, and meta-analysis reviews of RCT studies, which all show that masks and respirators do not work to prevent respiratory influenza-like illnesses, or respiratory illnesses believed to be transmitted by droplets and aerosol particles.
Furthermore, the relevant known physics and biology, which I review, are such that masks and respirators should not work. It would be a paradox if masks and respirators worked, given what we know about viral respiratory diseases: The main transmission path is long-residence-time aerosol particles(<2.5μm), which are too fine to be blocked, and the minimum-infective-dose is smaller than one aerosol particle.
The present paper about masks illustrates the degree to which governments, the mainstream media, and institutional propagandists can decide to operate in a science vacuum or select only incomplete science that serves their interests. Such recklessness is also certainly the case with the current global lockdown of over 1 billion people, an unprecedented experiment in medical and political history.
The CDC recently revealed that the Case Fatality Rate (CFR) of COVID-19 is much less than we had previously been told. The World Health Organization originally claimed that a staggering 3.4% of people with the infection would die from it. The CDC has now come out and admitted that the true CFR is just 0.26%, 1300% lower than the original claim from the World Fearmongering Organization.
A Department of Defense study showed flu vaccine recipients were at 36% increased risk of coronavirus infection, the same family of viruses as COVID-19. A concerning finding considering Reuters is reporting that fears of a second wave are pushing pharmacies and drugmakers to gear up for a major flu vaccine push this year.
Fluzone Quadrivalent High-Dose
Within 6 months post-vaccination, 156 (6.1%) Fluzone High-Dose recipients and 93 (7.4%) Fluzone recipients experienced a serious adverse event (SAE). No deaths were reported within 28 days post-vaccination. A total of 23 deaths were reported during Days 29 – 180 post-vaccination: 16 (0.6%) among Fluzone High-Dose recipients and 7 (0.6%) among Fluzone recipients. The majority of these participants had a medical history of cardiac, hepatic, neoplastic, renal, and/or respiratory diseases. These data do not provide evidence for a causal relationship between deaths and vaccination with Fluzone High-Dose.
Elderly who generally suffer from comorbidities and have been especially hard hit by COVID-19 are dying at twice the rate of the average COVID-19 CFR following flu vaccination. When considering the apparently increased risk of coronavirus infection, as well as the normally significant death rate of the elderly who receive regular flu vaccination it appears that a major flu vaccine push could result in the dreaded “second wave” we’ve been hearing about for months now.
Governments, the pharmaceutical industry, and our health officials repeatedly claim that vaccines are the first pharmaceutical drug that is universally safe. We’re consistently told that the “science is settled” and that time for debate is over. But is science really settled?
At Informed Consent Network Canada, we’ve catalogued hundreds of studies showing adverse events resulting from vaccination. The toxicity and risks involved with vaccine ingredients. The fact that unlike all other pharmaceutical drugs, vaccines are the only type of drug that isn’t required to undergo randomized double-blind placebo-controlled study to prove safety and efficacy.
Arguably, vaccines have the least settled science in all of medicine. They have the least rigorous study, for the shortest periods of follow-up of any drug. Vaccine safety is far from being established. In the United States, as many as 50,000 adverse events are reported to their national Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS). A study funded by the US Dept. Of Health and Human Services found that just 1% of all adverse events are actually reported to the VAERS system which means the true number of adverse events could be in the millions every year.
Worse yet, vaccines are not as effective as they are reported to be. In fact, “effective” is not even used in the literal sense for vaccines, but rather the theoretical sense. Throughout history and up until today outbreaks consistently occur in vaccinated populations highlighting the common issue of vaccine failure.
With the effectiveness of vaccines in question, and the safety of vaccines having never been established – to suggest that the science is settled defies rationality.
