German scientists have discovered dangerous chemical substances in some of the masks on sale and used by the general public.
They are also concerned that the continued use of these devices creates serious health problems for users, as they unknowingly breathe in carcinogens, allergens, and tiny synthetic microfibers deposited in their lungs, according to the alternative media Ecotextile on April 1.
Face masks being made and sold to the public do not meet the same standards as masks used by medical staff.
One of the specialists warning about these risks is Professor Michael Braungart, director of the Hamburg Environmental Institute and co-founder of the world-renowned Cradle to Cradle environmental standard.
“What we are breathing through our mouth and nose is actually hazardous waste,” Braungart argues.
Braungart detected carcinogenic chemicals such as aniline, formaldehyde, and optical brighteners heavily restricted in consumer goods by European and U.S. authorities.
Other scientists found heavy contamination of hazardous fluorocarbons, formaldehyde, and other potentially carcinogenic substances in surgical masks.
“I can only say 100 per cent that I have similar concerns to Prof. Braungart,” noted leading chemist, CEO, and co-founder of Modern Testing Services Augsburg (Germany), Dr. Dieter Sedlak.
China is the leading country in the world to produce masks, and 85 percent come from factories linked to the CCP, which have raised concerns about certain deficiencies in the processes and the opacity of the supply chains, reports the Daily Mail.
The very use of the masks is controversial. Italian journalist Cesare Sacchetti argues that the pandemic is a hoax and illustrates the false protection attributed to the masks’ constant use by contrasting it with the decrease in Texas infections when the masks are no longer used.
The covidiots claim that if everyone wears a mask, the fake pandemic would be over now. It’s quite the contrary. Since Texas lifted mask mandates, Covid cases dropped. The “solution” of the system is the problem. The covidiots are those who are keeping alive the fake pandemic. pic.twitter.com/hJedRmztP3
