Instead of being relegated to the scrap heap of junk science history – where it belongs – the terrible Bangladesh Mask Study has just been published in Science. To unsuspecting readers, this suggests the study was a quality endeavour able to pass one of the world’s most demanding peer-review processes. In this article, I explain why nothing could be further from the truth.
Masks are not a harmless exercise in virtue-signaling. Their increased use among healthcare professionals during the ‘pandemic’ has seen an accompanying rise in side effects, especially headache. Ultrasound research shows that within 5 minutes of donning a mask, your brain experiences worrying changes in blood flow. Research also shows that within minutes of donning a mask, the level of CO2 in the air you breathe skyrockets.
Research to date has shown that face masks are ineffective at preventing influenza, including COVID-19. A new mask study from Bangladesh, however, is being hailed as definitive proof that masks prevent the spread of COVID. I explain why this claim is nothing short of absurd.
