It’s Official: Your Mask Can Harm You

The signs are up in so many places now:

“No Entrance Without a Face Mask.”

“Face Mask Required to Enter this Facility.”

“Face Mask Obligatory in this Store.”

As part of the new normal, people now regularly don the mask when venturing outdoors or even driving in their cars, as well.

But recent events have called into question the safety of some popular and widely distributed masks.

The Canadian government is now reporting that some masks distributed to day care facilities have been found to be laced with graphene and are being pulled out of circulation, due to concerns about the potential toxicity of graphene. Graphene is a product of nano-tech and is a form of carbon that consists of nanoscopically thin flakes of hexagonally-arranged carbon atoms.

According to the CBC, grey and blue masks which were given to children at these facilities potentially contain graphene. The specific masks in question were made in China and distributed by Métallifer, a Quebec-based company. The model of the masks has been delineated as SNN200642.

“If you have this type of mask in stock, we ask that you stop distributing them and keep them in a safe place now," the provincial government said in its directive.

According to Health Canada, graphene is associated with "early pulmonary toxicity" in animal studies.

However, a quick check reveals that graphene is widely used in face masks, and certainly not only through the Quebecois distributor.

Amazon advertises multiple masks made with graphene. Vendors include companies ranging from Guangzhou Nanqixing Non woven Co., Ltd., in Guangdong, China to Pacsafe in Seattle, Washington.

At least one British company is in on the graphene act. Versarien is headquartered in Gloucestershire, UK. Its website proudly lists its multiple affiliates involved in graphene production, including Versarien Graphene Inc, based in Texas, which is the distribution arm for the UK’s graphene development technologies and Gnanomat S.L. based in the Parque Científico Madrid, Spain, “a company capable of utilising Versarien’s graphene products in an environmentally friendly, scalable production process for energy storage devices.”

Just a few days back, Medicevo Company sent out a press release concerning its graphene face masks, lauding its ability to filter out 98% of Covid virus.

According to Medicevo, “The masks are scientifically proven to kill COVID-19 particles and other types of infectious diseases like the seasonal flu, which is key for disease control and prevention.”

The problem, however, is that graphene has been known for some time to be potentially hazardous to humans, as well.

While being lauded as a “wonder material,” “miracle material,” and “supermaterial,” scientific papers dating back a number of years have noted that it appears to have pronounced health hazards.

In 2018, the journal Nanoethics stated that “Graphene is a nanomaterial with many promising and innovative applications, yet early studies indicate that graphene may pose risks to humans and the environment."

The article goes on to state that “An especially notable study found that micrometer-thick sheets of a few graphene layers can penetrate cell membranes at the sheets’ corners and asperities, of which numerous exist along the irregular edges of fabricated graphene [30]. This piercing of cells illustrates the inherent potential of graphene to cause harm to organisms.”

A Chemistry World article dating back to 2012 stated that “once graphene enters the lungs the immune system has trouble getting rid of it” and went on to state that “Graphene nanoplatelets can penetrate deeper into the lungs than their size would suggest... And once there, the body’s natural defences cannot deal with them effectively. Chronic exposure could therefore lead to inflammation and disease in a similar way to asbestos fibres.”

Asbestos. Let that sink in. Your face mask, seen as so necessary to protect you from this virus that has a 99% survival rate, can result in the horrific lung damage seen with asbestos. And this has been known since at least 2012.

Neither Versarien nor Pacsafe nor Health Canada responded to requests for comment from this reporter.

Usual clickbait. How can you expect serious issues to be given any gravitas when you post sensationalist headlines that are deliberately misleading?

  1. It makes you worse than mainstream media because you had hypocrisy to your CV and
  2. You give the whole of the independent news movement a bad name with your endless immature attempts to create 'likes'

Congratulations, a very serious subject and possible health cover-up trashed by irresponsible, reporting.

Please explain your criticisms.
The article's sources seem valid and the headline is quite factual.

My criticism is of the word "can" which implies 'it is able to' and of the word "your" which shows application to everyone who reads the headline which is factually untrue.
The rest of my comment then applies. And I did not comment upon the sources as they do appear to be legitimate in their concern, however, headlines should be based on factual context and not attempt to draw people in through misdirection.
Thanks for dropping by, I hope this is a better attempt to explain. In all sincerity, as a lawyer, would that headline stand legal challenge?

I don't see any legal problem with it. It is not defamatory nor misleading and deceptive in trade or commerce.

Pretty typical Tabloid headline.

Thanks for that :-)

Pretty typical tabloid headline

That sums it up for me, and the reason I expect independent journalists to have far higher standards than 'Freddie Starr ate my Hamster' ! They have to overcome the mass read media to present important topics in a fact based manner in their attempt to coerce readers into examining alternative viewpoints. I just feel using the self same, loathsome mechanisms to achieve this is self-defeating.

Best wishes and good luck with the ongoing legal battle.

It would be nice if my Hive Blog was the number one alternative media news source. :-)
But the reality is that Alex Jones is!!

Given the amount of censorship of anyone challenging the orthodoxy I'm happy to put up with some sensationalism from alternative news sources.

I had always questioned the safety of masks in general, but that had more to do with oxygen deprivation, particularly for masks in the FFP or KN class. But this graphene angle is new to me. The comparison with asbestos is alarming, but what is ironic is that Canada is one of the worlds largest producers of asbestos (yet its use is banned in Canada). Its OK though to export that shit to India, lol.

This is stupid and people who promote this kind of stuff should be ashamed.

Yes but that's masktards for you...

Wearing a mask can tell the world that you are retarded spineless twat!

Bring some of those harsh and divisive statements to D.Buzz, it needs a more 'Twitter' atmosphere.

I like to twatter all over the place

It looks as though there is some truth in this very important story but by selective reporting and sensationalising the facts, the author of this post has sabotaged it and created doubt amongst readers.
I sometimes wonder whether there are double conspiracies in play and whether this form of self-sabotage is deliberate....

As fake as coronvirus...

Wow what next I wonder.

Nano worms found in masks! Do a search and you'll find it.

Thanks I'll have a look.

The Last American Vagabond covered some of it here: https://www.thelastamericanvagabond.com/new-reports-black-string-like-objects-masks-swabs-danger-or-conspiracy-theory/ Also a potential link to Morgellon's - another "conspiracy theory." Definitely interesting. Thank you for the comments.

I think the same but we don't stop wearing the mask, In my country police charge a huge fine against the person who is not wearing a mask

Do the disposable masks that doctors wear contain graphene? If yes, I would say there is unlikely to be a real problem here. Doctors aren't going to wear masks all day that cause them harm. If no, then why the difference?
