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 fibers. Titanium dioxidemay cause cancer in humans when inhaled, and is one such troubling toxin found in many face masks.
Unfortunately, cancer-causing munitions have been spread because of the unassuming use of masks during the pandemic. This isn't just a problem for adults but also children, whose bodies can't handle toxic substances as well as fully grown individuals.
Not only is there evidence that suggests mask mandates and use does not lower the spread of COVID-19, but this makes forced mask mandates all the worse. If there was any way to make wearing a mask less dangerous, it would be worth it, but as it stands now, face masks may do more harm than good.
Masks tested positive for a Group 2B carcinogen
The International Agency for Research on Cancer label titanium dioxide as a Group 2B carcinogen, which inhaling it may cause cancer in humans. Prior to the pandemic, this typically only occurred during production when technicians work with titanium dioxide powders or when people are making products that contain it.
Some individuals are worried about microscopic titanium dioxide particles in spray-on (aerosolized) sunscreens, hair color sprays and cosmetic powders being inhaled.
Now that everyone is wearing masks, it’s possible we are all inhaling more titanium dioxide than before.
California's Proposition 65 list includes titanium dioxide in the form of airborne particles measuring 10 micrometers or less, which according to the state, "can cause cancer." Titanium dioxide exposure may therefore increase an individual's risk for developing cancer.
Though it is commonly used in face mask textiles for stability to ultraviolet light and as a white colorant and matting agent, the carcinogenicity of titanium dioxide when inhaled is well-known.
Nanoparticles are tiny particles with a diameter of less than 100 nanometers. Nano-sized materials have unique properties that differ from those of their larger counterparts, making them ideal for use in face masks and filters. For example, nano-sized titanium dioxide particles can be used to make antimicrobial filters. When combined with silver and graphene, these nanoparticles create an even more effective filter."
"While the use of nanoparticles in face masks can offer some benefits, there are also some risks to consider. One major concern is the possibility that inhaling nano-sized particles could cause adverse health effects. Studies have shown that titanium dioxide nanoparticles can damage lung tissue and cause cancer when inhaled."
A team of researchers has cautioned about "possible future consequences caused by a poorly regulated use of nanotechnology in textiles," citing reports of adverse effects from animal studies involving inhalation of titanium dioxide particles. These potential consequences for human health and the environment should not be ignored.
Masks containing TiO2 exceed 'acceptable' exposure level
Researchers published a study in Scientific Reports which contained tests on the amount of titanium present in 12 different types of face masks. These masks are meant to be worn by everyday people and include both disposable and reusable varieties. The researchers used synthetic and natural fibers like polyester and cotton to make the various types of masks.
All masks had titanium dioxide particles in at least one layer; however, they were not discovered in cotton fibers or meltblown nonwoven fabrics. The masks that had the highest concentrations of titanium dioxide were made with two or more layers.
Titanium dioxide is commonly used in food and cosmetics as a pigment, UV blocker, and corrosion inhibitor. It's also found in some paints, coatings, and plastics. Inhalation of titanium dioxide can cause lung cancer.
Nonwoven fabrics contained, on average, ten times fewer titanium dioxide particles than polyester or polyamide fibers. Also of concern is that all but one of the masks studied contained TiO2 nanoparticles, which present a greater threat if inhaled.
Titanium dioxide particles in the masks studied were generally under 100 nanometers (nm). The average size of these particles was between 89-184 nm.
Federico Andres Lois reveals on Twitter that "The best" masks (lowest contamination) have more than 5 times the acceptable limit. He also adds that you are practically forcing your kid to breathe through it if you make them wear one of these.
The Negative Effects of Masks
There is no scientific evidence that face masks prevent the spread of COVID-19, and there are potential risks associated with wearing them, such as inhaling carcinogenic particles. More research is needed to understand the long-term effects of face mask usage during the pandemic, but some experts are raising red flags about potential risks.
Dr. Zacharias Fögen's recent study analyzed whether or not the mandatory use of masks influenced the COVID-19 case fatality rate in Kansas from Aug. 1 to Oct. 15, 2020. He chose to focus on Kansas because counties are allowed to opt out of state mask mandates, providing a broad yet controlled sample size.
Fögen's study found that the case fatality rate was 1.78% in counties where masks were mandatory, while the rate was 2.49% in counties where they were not required. This difference was statistically significant, meaning that it is unlikely to be due to chance alone.
After looking at the data, he found that counties with a mask mandate had much higher case fatality rates than those without one.
He concluded that mask use may pose an unknown threat to the user instead of protecting them, making mask mandates a debatable epidemiologic intervention. He explained that this threat may be something called the “Foegen effect” — the idea that deep reinhalation of droplets and virions caught on facemasks might make COVID-19 infection more likely or more severe.
Wearing masks could actually increase your overall viral load, Fögen explained. This happens because the virions (virus particles) are caught in the mask instead of being exhaled from your respiratory tract and leaving your body. Additionally, this might also cause more virions to pass through the mask than if you weren't wearing one at all.
According to a 2021 report concerning the health, safety and well-being surrounding face masks, fibrosis caused by inhaling nanoparticles can physically damage your lungs permanently.
The authors warned that there are real dangers of developing respiratory infections or lung injuries, like pneumothorax. They further explained that moisture build-up can lead to exposure levels of carbon dioxide (CO2) which can be harmful to someone's health.
There are physical and psychological repercussions to consider when it comes to mask mandates. The journal Pediatrics recently highlighted the burden felt by parents, clinicians and patients in pediatric cancer wards when they were forced to wear masks. Clinicians said they felt powerless to display empathy and compassion during conversations with their patients and families because of the masks hiding their faces. Similarly, parents felt like they were losing the ability to communicate with and comfort their sick children.
For patients, being surrounded by people wearing masks can be anxiety-inducing. It's a constant reminder of the dangers of their illness and the outside world. One patient in the study said that seeing everyone in masks made her feel "like I'm the only one that's not sick."
What's more, the masks can make it difficult to breathe, which can be especially hard for cancer patients who are already struggling with fatigue and shortness of breath.
The children were also impacted by the situation, as they couldn’t see their parents’ faces during a time when they needed them most.
A recent psychology report from 2021 suggests that masks might be inflicting psychological damage to children and disrupting their development.
The report highlighted that the psychological effects on young people are currently unknown due to the unprecedented social experiment taking place in schools and society at large.
So while we're all still waiting for a definitive answer on whether or not masks actually protect us from coronavirus, it's important to consider the other potential impacts they might be having on our lives.
