As masking makes a comeback in America’s liberal enclaves, a new study has bad news for the wearers of the masks generally reputed to be the most effective; N95s. 

According to the Daily Mail

A study quietly re-shared by the National Institutes of Health in spring suggests the tight-fitting mask may expose users to dangerous levels of toxic chemicals.

Researchers from Jeonbuk National University in South Korea looked at two types of disposable medical-grade masks, as well as several reusable cotton masks. The study found that the chemicals released by these masks had eight times the recommended safety limit of toxic volatile organic compounds (TVOCs). Inhaling TVOCs has been linked to health issues like headaches and nausea, while prolonged and repeated has been linked to organ damage and even cancer.

“'It is clear that particular attention must be paid to the VOCs associated with the use of KF94 [medical] masks their effects on human health,” the researchers wrote in the study.

The study was published in the journal Ecotoxicology and Environmental Safety and on the NIH's website. The NIH said: 'Inclusion in an NLM database does not imply endorsement of, or agreement with, the contents by NLM or the National Institutes of Health.'

Back in 2021, James Agresti of “Just Facts” pointed out a number of drawbacks of N95s that were completely absent from discussions in the media, such as the fact that the average CO2 concentrations inhaled by people wearing N95s is 2.6-7 times higher than the OSHA work shift limit for CO2. It was also 13-35 times the classroom limit in many countries, and 30-80 times higher than the level of CO2 in fresh air.
