The Danger of Masks

One of the most insane things since this so called "pandemic" has been this huge push for society to adopt face masks as the new fashion statement. Or should we say, virtue signal.

There is a lot of information out there regarding the dangers of wearing face coverings, particularly for extended periods of time. Even without the studies, most of us can feel the impact of covering our faces where we should naturally have clear access for clean oxygen intake.

Our lungs are a detox pathway, meaning we breathe out waste our bodies do not require. That waste gets caught up in face coverings and breathed back in, putting you at risk of health problems, including PTSD, anxiety, respiratory and skin issues. It substantially increases health risks to children and those with poor health. It goes against fundamental human rights to force or coerce anyone into doing something that can have a negative impact on their wellbeing.

If you do choose to wear a face mask, according to many health and safety resources, you must ensure it is changed every 20 minutes or anytime you touch it. The material otherwise becomes a breeding ground for bacteria.

Also be very aware of the type of material used. Cloth masks put your health at greater risk (see studies below) and disposable masks often contain harmful chemicals. Be informed and research thoroughly.

Not to mention, they should be disposed of in contamination bins if this was a real pandemic, not littering the streets and oceans.

Let's look at a couple of studies...

“No statistically significant differences in preventing influenza, respiratory viral infections, respiratory infection and influenzalike ill-ness using N95 respirators and surgical masks”: (

Cloth masks fail 97% of the time and poor filtration may increase the risk of infection: (

“We know that wearing a mask outside health care facilities offers little, if any, protection from infection”: (

So what are your rights?

1. People with a medical condition and children under 12 are not required to wear a mask according to the QLD Health Department. As stated on their website, you are not required to wear a mask “when a mask creates a risk to health and safety”.

2. You are not required to present a medical certificate or disclose personal medical information. This is also listed on the QLD government website. It is also a breach of the Privacy Act 1988.

3. Businesses cannot discriminate, harass or coerce their staff or customers into wearing masks. This is a breach of the Commonwealth Discriminatory Act 1992 (sections 6 & 24). This includes discriminatory signage.
