Not only are they uncomfortable, make it hard to breathe, and essentially pointless, but surgical masks worn during the Covid-19 'pandemic' could have a far unhealthier effect than we all thought.
According to a new study (Detection of Microplastics in Human Lung tissue using μFTIR Spectroscopy) published in the Science of the Total Environment,
Researchers in the United Kingdom looked at lung tissue obtained from study participants and found microplastics in all regions of the lungs, including the deeper section.
According to the study,
this is the first time microplastics have been found in human lung
tissue samples using
MPs with dimensions as
small as 4 μm but also, surprisingly, >2 mm were identified within
all lung region samples, with the majority being fibrous and
The 4 microplastics present in the most considerable quantities included:
In 2020, the amount of disposable face masks littered into the environment increased by a staggering 9000 percent.
Billions of people strapped polypropylene masks to their faces every day for two years and sucked their air through plastic fibers for 8 hours or more.
To not have discovered plastic in lungs would have been surprising.
The confirmation of microplastics in the lungs also backs up a study (COVID-19 - Performance study of Microplastic Inhalation risk posed by Wearing Masks) conducted in 2020 which,
According to researchers in that study, the inhalation risk posed by spherical- and fiber-like microplastics was high while wearing a mask.
Unfortunately, researchers in that study continued to recommend the use of plastic masks despite the risk of inhalation.
Dr. Osita Onugha, thoracic surgeon and assistant professor of thoracic surgery at Saint John's Cancer Institute at Providence Saint John's Health Center in Santa Monica, California told Medical News Today (MNT) that the implications for microplastics in the lungs are unknown given our current knowledge on this type of contamination but it can't be good...
As MNT reports, Dr. Onugha said a follow-up study should address if microplastics within the lungs can lead to,
He added that it should be carried out in a significant population to determine "a cause and effect."
When researchers do finally determine the source of contamination, it won't take genius to figure out that strapping an endless supply of microplastics to the entrance of your lungs increases your chance of breathing them in.
States who continue to force children to wear masks, like New York, would do well to realize the potentially catastrophic health impacts they are having unsuspecting, innocent lives...
