Health Canada has issued a recall on disposable masks containing a material made of tiny particles it says could pose a danger if inhaled.
The agency is advising people not to wear masks with graphene or biomass graphene because its preliminary assessment of the available research suggests the particles cause early lung toxicity in animals, though the risks to humans are not yet known.
It says variables such as the design of a mask, how long it’s worn and the type of graphene material used would all affect the potential to inhale particles from the material that is reported to have antiviral and antibacterial properties.
Health Canada says in an advisory that it has requested data from mask manufacturers to assess the potential health risks related to face coverings that contain graphene.
It has directed distributors, importers and manufacturers to stop selling the masks and has also advised provinces and territories to halt their use.
The agency says anyone who has worn a graphene mask should consult their healthcare provider if they have concerns such as shortness of breath or difficulty breathing.
It says the masks have been used in schools and daycares by adults and children alike.
The agency says they may have also been used in some healthcare settings.
As this is a serious and important health warning, the entire text is copied here in case anything should happen to the original article. Also because it is an enormously satisfying response to people who have literally screamed at me about wearing masks.
This may explain the flood of videos that have been appearing showing small black fibrous threads in masks which appear to react to stimulus such as moisture or static electricity, and which are being imputed with a lot of attributes and motives. This reality though, that it causes the exact symptoms what will get you shoved into an ICU with a ventilator as a serious Covid case, that is quite enough of an explanation.
Also, it has been the contention of this site, that in most things outside of the basics, a government’s job should be to offer the best information available and allow people to decide for themselves what actions to take on a given issue. Being that the government has literally forced people to wear masks, they should be fully liable for the risks they have put people in for wearing them, and be sued pretty much out of office for doing so. Had they not forced their half baked ideas, then the issue would look a lot different in court, assuming courts have any of the same purposes and attributes we have been raised to expect of them.
