Face Mask Risk Assessment

privatepracticeskills Mar 19, 2022

In this video Dr. Christina Parks discusses the detriments of masking. 

Face masks in practice

Most of the mask mandates removed and it is now up to you as a clinician and clinic owner, leader and advocate of health to determine your practice policy on masking.

To help you I have compiled a review of the evidence and a risk assessment of mask-wearing.


  • In the 1918 Spanish Flu outbreak, gauze masks were used and recommended, but not mandatory, and there was great debate about whether they were effective. A study from 1919 by Wilfried Kellogg confirmed potential adverse effects of wearing masks about the efficacy of mask-wearing stating that “many instances were observed among hospital attendants where apparently the mask was no protection to the wearers” ( It was further considered that the mask may have “an unhygienic influence when extended to the entire working day of the individual”.
  • In 2003 you could have been fined $110,000 in Australia for “exaggerating the health benefits of surgical masks” along with a warning from NSW Fair Trading Minister Reba Meagher “that it is un-Australian to profiteer from people’s fears and anxieties,”
  • In the spring of 2020, government advisors around the world all agreed that masks weren’t necessary and were, indeed, nothing more than virtue signaling. And then, without good reason, they suddenly changed their minds, and the face mask became a symbol of compliance and a visual sign of the crisis. It was promoted that wearing one would prevent transmission of a deadly virus and help “save granny”. Masks were mandated in public spaces and work spaces and questioning their efficacy of them was frowned upon.

Research summary

There is no robust scientific evidence that masks work.

  • One meta-analysis published by the CDC in May 2020 found “no significant reduction in influenza transmission with the use of face masks”.
  • (Lack of) Effectiveness of Adding a Mask Recommendation to Other Public Health Measures to Prevent SARS-CoV-2 Infection in Danish Mask Wearers (otherwise known as the DANMASK study) was published in Nov 2020 in the renowned journal Annals of Internal Medicine. It concluded that there was no statistically significant benefit of wearing a mask.
  • Dr Denis Rancourt, published a well researched review and summary of the literature stating “There have been extensive randomized controlled trial (RCT) studies, and meta-analysis reviews of RCT studies, which all show that masks and respirators do not work to prevent respiratory influenza-like illnesses, or respiratory illnesses believed to be transmitted by droplets and aerosol particles.”
  • SPR, also provide overview of the current evidence regarding the effectiveness of face masks and conclude “So far, most studies found little to no evidence for the effectiveness of face masks in the general population, neither as personal protective equipment nor as a source control.”
  • Masks do nothing to halt the spread of disease, North Dakota and South Dakota had near-identical case figures, despite one having a mask-mandate and the other not.
  • In Kansas, counties without mask mandates actually had fewer Covid “cases” than counties with mask mandates. And despite masks being very common in Japan, they had their worst flu outbreak in decades in 2019.
  • The public health order to wear a mask comes from the concept that the pathogen is transmitted through the air, and efforts to prevent us from sharing the same air could be made to control the contagion. However, even WHO has stated that there is insufficient evidence that the so-called SARS-CoV-2 virus is transmitted through the air.
Those who still claim that the benefits outweigh the risks should look at the size of mask pores and viruses. Masks neither stop bacteria nor fungi; how should they be able to stop particles that are even much smaller?

There is much evidence that masks harm those who wear them

  • A review of 48 studies published between 1981 and 2020 by Doctors for Enlightenment concludes “The data situation does not speak in favor of wearing mouth and nose covers… This is particularly true with regard to children!”
  • (
  • Kisielinski et al. wrote a review paper about the efficacy and potential side effects of wearing masks. The authors concluded that wearing masks poses severe health risks while not reducing transmission significantly
    • extended mask-wearing by the general population could lead to relevant effects and consequences in many medical fields.”
    • “Theoretically, the mask-induced effects of the drop in blood gas oxygen and increase in carbon dioxide extend to the cellular level with induction of the transcription factor HIF (hypoxia-induced factor) and increased inflammatory and cancer-promoting effects [160] and can, thus, also have a negative influence on pre-existing clinical pictures.”
    • “We not only found evidence in the reviewed mask literature of potential long-term effects, but also evidence of an increase in direct short-term effects with increased mask-wearing time in terms of cumulative effects for: carbon dioxide retention, drowsiness, headache, feeling of exhaustion, skin irritation (redness, itching) and microbiological contamination (germ colonization).
  • A long study on the detrimental effects of mask-wearing was published by the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health
  • Dr. James Meehan reported in August 2020 he was seeing increases in bacterial pneumonia, fungal infections, facial rashes .
  • Masks are also known to contain plastic microfibers, which damage the lungs when inhaled and may be potentially carcinogenic.
  • Childen wearing masks encourages mouth-breathing, which results in facial deformities.
  • People around the world have passed out due to CO2 poisoning while wearing their masks, and some children in China even suffered sudden cardiac arrest.
  • Masks serve as incubators for bacteria, fungi and other pathogens
  • Wearing masks consequently leads to direct exposure to bacteria and fungi constantly being inhaled. This is particularly alarming since Aspergillus, Cryptococcus, Pneumocystis, and endemic fungi are major pulmonary fungal pathogens that can result in life-threatening invasive diseases
  • A study published in Nature shows what’s already been known for decades: masks get quickly contaminated with pathogenic bacteria and fungi.
    • “The colony counts of face masks were higher in bacteria than fungi; the bacterial and fungal colony counts were higher on the face-side and outer-side, respectively. The longer duration of mask usage correlated with increases in the fungal colony counts but not the bacterial colony counts.”
  • Masks kill
  • This meta analysis demonstrates that masks do not prevent transmission. Instead, they pose a major threat to human health. 

Risk assessment for not wearing a mask

Potential Hazard Who is at risk? Prevention Measures Who is Responsible
Loss of Social Bonds
People don’t buy into a narrative because they think it’s accurate or because they think it’s scientific, the real reason why they buy into the narrative is always that it leads to a social bond.

Masks are consequently an essential part of the psychological warfare against the global population.

Not complying with a narrative or questioning can lead to a breakdown of relationships with colleagues, friends and family.

All team members and clients I am cognitive of the fact that this is a reality that only some of us are experiencing. Many others cannot see it or understand it.

As a leader and promoter of measures that truly contribute to good health, it is important to reject the dystopian reality we have been fed. Be kind, hold your ground, with no need to compromise.
Everyone in team
Loss of job or license to practice
Many clinicians are too scared to lose their job or license to practice by standing up to mask mandates.

Believing they are insignificant can’t influence the situation. Only seeing the risks speaking up would cause for them and their family.

Not seeing the bigger picture that “putting food on table” is directly related to resisting and not complying with the circus.
All team members and clients It is a lot easier to tell yourself you are a hero than to recognise you have been complicit in possibly the biggest fraud in history, questioning how more than 190 governments from all over the world ended up dealing with the Covid pandemic in almost exactly the same manner, with lockdowns, mask mandates, and vaccination cards.

If you are employed: You can quit your job walk away and work elsewhere or learn how to run your own practice.
If you are self-employed: you can determine the policy in your practice.
Everyone in team
You will “kill granny”
This is the narrative we were sold that led to compliance, virtual signaling and labeling that you were “selfish” for not wearing a mask.

Potential Hazard Who is at risk? Prevention Measures Who is Responsible
“Some of you wouldn’t even recognise tyranny if they forced you to wear a mask and prohibited you from getting within 1.5 meters of a fellow human being.” Dr Simon Goddek

Masks symbolise submission and compliance and silence those wearing them. Masks are a constant reminder of an official narrative that was never about safety; it was always about control. That’s the reason why questioning the efficacy of masks got people banned from social media.
All team members and clients Don’t wear a mask and keep talking about what constitutes good health. Everyone in team
Real has become too hard and shocking
One of the biggest obstacles in the way of humanity is the widespread reluctance to face just how unreal our consensus “reality” has become. A “pandemic” based on a virus that only exists as a sequence of computer code is the most visible aspect of our collective retreat from the verifiable and into the merely affirmed.

Complaint with the corruption of science and medicine
“for millions…masks simply work even when they don’t, because ‘The Science’ says so…”

The overused phrase “trust the science” has revealed the corruption and misuse of science, however, amongst critical thinkers a commitment to the scientific process has increased exposing those who don’t apply scientific thinking.
All team members and clients
Question everything!

Scientists are not more resistant to incentives to cheat than anyone else & its naive to imagine they are. There are no formal audit methods or processes of training.

Perpetuation of fear that healthy humans are bioweapons
The mask is an outward symbol of the paranoia many have been conditioned to feel about COVID-19 and reminds us of that “deadly virus” out there.

“Fear is the main driver of this plandemic, as it leads to higher mortality rates and, moreover, can alter a person’s belief system. Intentionally spreading fear and panic is therefore immoral and indecent.” Dr Simon Goddek
All team members and clients

Promote the many factors that have an impact on your health/life. You can’t target immunity just like you can’t target fat reduction. Your body works as a whole; it’s an ecosystem. Don’t fall for pharmaceutical propaganda. A good immune response is promoted with a healthy diet and lifestyle including daylight (Vitamin D) and sufficient exercise.
Everyone in team
Perpetuation of propagation
Wearing a mask has become a pure signifier of empathy with people who are not healthy. The masking rhetoric treats everyone as if they are immunocompromised.

Gagging the public with ineffective masks exclusively seems a political reason to break down resistance. The only reason why those in power introduced the mask mandates is that they serve as muzzles and silence us.
All team members and clients Masks don’t work as intended. Stop wearing one Everyone in team
Psychological abuse
Constant fear leads to chronically elevated cortisol blood levels. Cortisol is a silent killer and has a negative impact on our metabolism (

Masks don’t work as intended. Stop wearing one.

Rather ask how in your practice you can break the cycle of fear and provide the reassurance and education your clients and communities need to breathe with confidence.

Teaching children they are a plague

The masking is damaging psychologically, emotionally, and educationally for kids.

What have we been teaching children having them go to school in masks? Forcing children into obedience. Telling children they are harming themselves but just keep doing it

We have been damaging a generation of people. Forcing them to interact with a mask on their faces denies them of sufficient oxygen during a time in their life their brain is developing.

Chronic Hypocapnia
Something covering our mouth and nose (a mask) will increase our Co2 concentration and signal our body to breathe faster/deeper enough to bring body back into homeostasis.
When wearing a mask for a prolonged period will trigger prolonged deeper and faster breathing, further increasing CO2 levels. Resulting in hyperventilating whilst wearing a mask increase risk of:
– Anxiety and panic attacks
– Increase heart rate and cardiac output. Putting the body under cardiovascular stress
– Increase CO2 – not sufficient gas exchange – brain damage
– Stress on kidneys
– acidosis which is pemisve for cancer
– immunosuppression

Humankind is getting through 130 billion face masks per year. Most of them are not biodegradable. Many eventually end up in oceans and other water bodies. They take about 450 years to break down into microplastics, which are likely to enter our food chain.

The detriment of masking – Hypercapnia

In this presentation, Dr. Christina Parkes reminds us of the effects of chronic and acute hypercapnia as a result of mask-wearing, often referring back to the model of COPD to support the logic.

Well, if masks don’t work, then why do surgeons wear them?

This is well answered in an article by Dr. Jim Meehan “Based on extensive review and analysis, there is no question in my mind that healthy people should not be wearing surgical or cloth masks. Nor should we be recommending universal masking of all members of the population.

Although surgeons do wear masks to prevent their respiratory droplets from contaminating the surgical field and the exposed internal tissues of our surgical patients, that is about as far as the analogy extends.

Unlike the public wearing masks in the community, surgeons work in sterile surgical suites equipped with heavy-duty air exchange systems that maintain positive pressures, exchange and filter the room air at a very high level, and increase the oxygen content of the room air. These conditions limit the negative effects of masks on the surgeon and operating room staff. And yet despite these extreme climate control conditions, clinical studies demonstrate the negative effects (lowering arterial oxygen and carbon dioxide re-breathing) of surgical masks on surgeon physiology and performance.

We wear the mask for short periods of time and change it out at the first signs of the excessive moisture build-up that we know degrades mask effectiveness and increases their negative effects.

When are we going to stand up

Considering all of the above does it make any rational sense to continue mask-wearing? Either in public or in your clinic? There’s no proof that masks prevent transmission. Instead, they most likely harm those wearing them.

You may feel mask-wearing reassures clients who are scared. But what we know now is you could be putting yourself and them at harm by promoting the wearing of them.

Follow the actual science and just say no more

Masks kill:
A study published in Nature shows what’s already been known for decades: masks get quickly contaminated with pathogenic bacteria and fungi.

In Conclusion

You should stop wearing the mask, but you shouldn’t stop remembering. It would help if you threw this rag in the rubbish. Still, you shouldn’t forget the imprisoned children, the divided families, the destroyed friendships and relationships, the bankrupt shops, the closed schools, the lost jobs, the decreed bankruptcies, the burst bills, the denied treatments, the stolen freedom, the persecuted doctors, and the censored scientists. On all the masks you have worn during these two years, the whole list of crimes committed by politicians, bureaucrats, journalists, celebrities, corrupt pseudoscientists, and other torturers of other people’s lives is written in invisible letters. May the last mask be the first page of condemnation of these misanthopes.” Dr Simon Goddeck
