1. Reduction in Oxygen Levels Due to Mask Use

Video: Unsafe oxygen levels (according to OSHA) within 8 seconds of mask use. Oxygen levels drop from the normal air level of 20-21% oxygen to 17.4% within 8 seconds of mask use. Less than 19.5% is considered unsafe, according to OSHA. The actual percentage of oxygen reduced by mask wearing, without any physical exertion, and within just 8 seconds of use, is: (20.6% - 17.4%)/(20.6%) = 15.5% less oxygen being breathed in, within just 8 seconds of mask use, while undertaking no physical activity. "If you are exerted, working, running, whatever the case may be, it's only going to get worse from there."

Below Video: Game Over/Checkmate Against the Mask Proponents, by OSHA Mask Experts: Interview with two OSHA experts, including one lady who was the highest ranked military OSHA expert. They state that not only are masks essentially useless against covid-19, they are unhealthy, and their use as they are currently be used/mandated for covid-19 is illegal (and dangerous to health) under current OSHA laws.

2. Oxygen's Effects on Immune System Function and Health

The below section includes quotes from Alternative Medicine: The Definitive Guide, by Burton Goldberg on innovative healthcare therapies used to provide increased oxygen levels for improving health, preventing illness, and treating illness and disease (including viral healthcare concerns, such as coronavirus/covid-19). Information is presented on hydrogen peroxide (successfully used during the 1918 flu, during WW1, and currently for Covid-19), and ozone (which provides antiviral, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-cancer, and wound healing effects), hyperbaric oxygen (the therapy used for ocean divers is also used for immune system support, to reverse and heal harm caused by strokes, and improve other healthcare concerns), ultraviolet light therapy (which activates oxidation when absorbed by the blood), and improved breathing methods, such as deep breathing, and, of course, avoiding the use of facemasks and other things that inhibit breathing, whenever possible.

2.1 How Oxygen Therapies Work

"All cells, tissues, and organs need oxygen to function. Oxygen therapies utilize oxygen in various forms to promote healing and destroy disease-producing microorganisms and toxins in the body."

"Oxygen therapies alter the body's chemistry to help overcome disease, promote repair, and improve overall function. These therapies are effective in treating a wide variety of conditions, including infections (viral, fungal, parasitic, and bacterial infections), circulatory problems, chronic fatigue syndrome, arthritis, allergies, cancer, and multiple sclerosis."

"[Oxygen] ... regulates tissue repair, cellular respiration, growth, immune and energy functions, most hormone systems, and the production of cytokines." [Excessive cytokines production is contributing factor in coronavirus/covid-19 related deaths.]."

"[Oxygen] can also work as a defense system, directly destroying bacteria, viruses, yeast and parasites."

"Oxygen therapies are classified according to the type of chemical process involved: the addition of oxygen to the blood or tissues is called oxygenation, while the reaction of splitting off electrons (electrically charged particles) from any chemical molecule is known as oxidation. Oxidation may or may not involve oxygen (oxidation refers to the chemical reaction and not to oxygen itself)." [So, in summary, oxygenation includes breathing-related factors, and oxidation, in some cases is related to breathing related factors, and in other cases, is not related to breathing-related factors].

Oxygenation saturates the body with oxygen through the use of gas, sometimes at high pressure (hyperbaric), increasing the total amount of available oxygen in the body. Insufficient oxygenation may promote the growth of pathogens, whereas excessive oxygenation may damage normal tissues. However, oxygenation employed under strictly controlled conditions can have positive therapeutic effects.

2.2 History and Use of Oxygen Therapies

"The scientific community has been aware of oxygen and its characteristics for [249] years. Oxygen was discovered by Englishman Joseph Priestly in 1771."

"Doctors and scientists began treating diseases and conditions with oxygen over [130] years ago [1890s]."

"Otto Warburg, Director of the Max Planck Institute for Cell Physiology, in German, and a two-time Nobel laureate [1, 2], proposed that a lack of oxygen at the cellular level may be the prime cause of cancer, and that oxygen therapy could be an effective treatment for it. He showed that normal cells in tissue culture, when deprived of oxygen, become cancer cells and that oxygen can kill cancer cells in tissue culture...The single, ultimate root cause of cancer and the source of all its aberrations, Dr. Otto Warburg declared, is life without oxygen, or anaerobiosis. All normal cells have an absolute requirement for oxygen, but cancer cells can live without oxygen."

2.2a) Ultraviolet Light

"Skin conditions were first treated with ultraviolet light (which activates oxidation when absorbed by the blood) in the late 19th century by Niels Finsen. In the 1890s, Danish physician Niels Finsen observed that tubercular lesions occurred commonly during the winter but were very rare in the summer. He suspected a lack of sunlight to be the cause of the lesions and successfully treated skin tuberculosis with ultraviolet light. Known as the 'father of photobiology,' Dr. Finsen won the Nobel Prize in 1903 for his work. Today, Ultraviolet light therapies are used to treat diseases ranging from high cholesterol to premenstrual syndrome to cancer."

2.2b) Hydrogen Peroxide

"Hydrogen peroxide was discovered in by French chemist Louis Jacques Thenard in 1818." [Hydrogen peroxide, H2O2, is a natural substance manufactured by normal, healthy human cells to regulate metabolism and attack invading pathogens. It occurs naturally in rain and snow, fruits and vegetables, and mother's milk, with particularly high concentrations found in colostrum. It is less staple than water, and it readily enters into oxidative reactions, ultimately becoming oxygen in water.]

"The use of hydrogen peroxide appears in the health literature as early as 1884. A.L. Cortelyou of Marietta, Georgia, successfully treated diphtheria with a hydrogen peroxide nasal spray in 1898. In the 1918 flu epidemic, Drs. T.H. Oliver and D.U. Murphy administered intravenous hydrogen peroxide [as a method of increasing oxygen levels in the body], which significantly reduced mortality rates.

"As early as 1924, Fredrick Koch, M.D., advocated oral hydrogen peroxide for cancer patients in the United States."

In 1920, The Lancet, reported the use of intravenous hydrogen peroxide by British Army doctors in India, who used it to treat troops suffering from influenzas. It reduced their death rate from 90% to 50%. [Improving oxygen levels in the body showed a 40% reduction in death rates from flu viruses. Coronavirus/covid-19 is a flu-related virus.]

2.2c) Ozone

"Ozone was discovered by Christian Friedrich Schonbein in 1840." [Oxygen in the air is O2, ozone is O3, a less stable form of oxygen, which readily enters into reactions to oxidize other chemicals; during oxidation in the body, the extra oxygen molecule breaks away, leaving a normal O2 molecule, which increases the content of oxygen in the blood or tissues; for this reason, ozone therapy is a combination of both oxygenation therapy and oxidation therapy. Health effects: antiviral, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-cancer, enhances wound healing, readily disrupts the fragile envelope of lipid-enveloped viruses, such as hepatitis B and C, herpes, and HIV. Administered for a course of treatments, ozone exerts a culling effect on virual load, thus allowing the immune system to recuperate and regain its competence. Shown to inactivate HIV in vitro. Shown to inhibit growth of human lung, breast and uterine cancer cells in tissue culture. Some of these effects may be explained by the fact that cancer cells do not possess certain enzymes, such as glutathione and catalase, which protect normal cells from oxidation.]

"Ozone application was used successfully in World War 1 to combat battlefield infections."

2.2d) Hyperbaric Oxygen

"The first hyperbaric oxygen operating room was created as early as 1879 by a French physician, Dr. J.A. Fontaine." [Hyperbaric oxygen is oxygen administered at over twice the pressure of the Earth's atmosphere at sea level, for 30-120 minutes. The increased pressure makes it possible to breathe oxygen at a concentration higher than the level achievable by other methods. It was first discovered by researchers who employed the therapy to successfully treat deep-sea divers with the "bends," a sometimes fatal affliction caused by ascending too quickly to the surface, by restoring the balance of nitrogen and oxygen in the bloodstream.]

Hyperbaric oxygen has also been shown to help successfully reverse the adverse effects of strokes, including paralysis, if it is given within a short time period after occurrence of a stroke (ideally, within 24 hrs or the first 1-2 weeks' time). "Today, hyperbaric oxygen therapy may be the single most effective therapy, conventional or alternative, for reversing the damage caused by a stroke."

2.2e) Improved Breathing Methods, Proper Breathing Technique and Deep Breathing

"Oxygen is needed for cellular respiration [life], cell metabolism, and proper brain function. If you breathe too shallowly [such as during facemask use], the body cannot eliminate sufficient carbon dioxide for good health. Proper breathing technique increases lung capacity, increases energy levels, speeds the healing process of many disorders, and helps to relieve anxiety, asthma symptoms, insomnia, and stress."

"Research has shown that deep breathing each day is one of the most effective methods of activating the lymphatic system [a component of the immune system] to keep lymph flowing...The lymphatic system becomes most active during times of illness such as the flu, when the lymph nodes, particularly at the throat, visibly swell with collected waste products. By reactivating the flow of lymph as part of an overall treatment program, alternative physicians are able to quickly reverse such disease conditions. By providing instructions in the various ways proper lymph flow can be maintained [this web page is one such example of instructions], they also empower people to more effectively prevent disease from occurring."

2.3 Conditions Improved or Healed with Oxygen Therapies

Conditions mentioned in Alternative Medicine: The Definitive Guide, as being improved, or healed with oxygen therapies: hydrogen peroxide, ozone, hyperbaric oxygen, ultraviolet light therapy, and improved oxygen levels through breathing related therapies (Note: This is just a list of conditions mentioned in one book, not a complete list of all known conditions for which increased oxygen levels can promote improved health, cures, or partial cures for illnesses, along with other healing methods.):

3. Concentration of Carbon Dioxide and Other Waste Products Due to Mask Use

Video: Welcome to toxic levels of carbon dioxide...

Longer video (the main information starts at 2:25, so skip to there. Masks cause much higher levels of carbon dioxide to be breathed in, within 30-60 seconds of use -- with no physical activity (unsafe levels of carbon dioxide, according to OSHA) + accumulation and re-breathing of the wastes from one of the body's primary channels of waste elimination (breathing, sweating, and bathroom use). Is that really a way to support immune system function?

Adverse health effects of increased carbon dioxide levels.

4. Facemasks Unhealthy, No Meters Needed for Confirmation

There are other videos on YouTube with different meters and different tests showing very little increase in carbon dioxide levels and very little reduction in oxygen use with masks. We don't need meters to know that masks are unhealthy to wear, though, in regards to breathing healthfully. As any runner knows, healthy, relaxed breathing, in and out, is of utmost importance to health and optimal run times -- a real-world indicator of health function. Children have died while running and wearing facemasks. Any small amount of better breathing is extremely helpful during running (and for health, and immune system function). If the kids in the above link were running as fast as they could, it is highly likely, and very reasonable to conclude, that they could have died from such activities.

8.3 Viruses, Bacteria, Germs and Pathogens are Everywhere, in Astronomical Numbers

Your cell phone, your computer keyboard, your purse, your wallet, and the floor of your car (where you keep your mask during driving), each have more bacteria, germs, viruses, pathogens, etc. than the toilet in a public restroom:

8.4 Real Healthcare (and Real-World Health Optimization), Not Fake Healthcare

Look over here and see what great things this toxic, patentable, expensive drug, vaccine and/or medical procedure did, but don't look elsewhere, at the many adverse effects it also caused...

As described above, the choice to wear a mask or not wear a mask is primarily a debate on healthcare philosophy: (1) fighting germs and healthcare concerns with man-made products (pharma's germ theory of disease and patented, non-naturally occurring substances aka drugs and vaccines), or (2) a healthcare focus on promoting health to the highest level possible through safe, effective, natural methods. It does not have to be one or the other, but one will ultimately take precedence.

  • If mere mechanical efficiency can make everyone a martial artist, then all is well. Unfortunately, combat, like freedom, is something that can not be preconceived. Bruce Lee.
  • Repetition does not transform a lie into a truth. Franklin D. Roosevelt.

So, ultimately consumers believe that we should all live in a bubble (with poorly functioning bodies, above) -- fearful of pharma's yearly "germ will get you" marketing campaigns and pharma's 24/7/365 marketing propaganda -- with masks, goggles, social distancing (third grade "cooties" healthcare), closure of business and schools (but not big businesses like Walmart for shopping, of course, because germs do not cause illness in Walmarts!), mandatory vaccines, loss of Constitutionally guaranteed freedoms, daily wearing of hazmat suits, etc., or live as athletes and bodybuilders do, with a focus on building the "muscles" within our immune system (and our overall level of health), such as through providing increased levels of nutrients essential for health, prayer, exercise, oxygen, etc....all of which have been shown to help immune system cells function more effectively and in greater numbers, while utilizing and ultimately relying on the science in support of nutrition-based medicine and natural healthcare -- 100,000+ supporting studies in the major medical journals, and essentially ZERO deaths caused by the use of such therapies.
