Scientists have discovered that some facemasks currently on sale and being used by the public, contain traces of toxic chemicals including formaldehyde. According to The Mail Online:
Preliminary tests have revealed traces of a variety of compounds which are heavily restricted for both health and environmental reasons.
This includes formaldehyde, a chemical known to cause watery eyes; a burning sensations in the eyes, nose, and throat; coughing; wheezing; and nausea.
Experts are concerned that the presence of these chemicals in masks which are being worn for prolonged periods of time could cause unintended health issues.
The evidence was gathered by Ecotextile News and share with The Mail.
Professor Michael Braungart, director at the Hamburg Environmental Institute, carried out tests on masks which had caused people to break out in rashes. He said;
“What we are breathing through our mouth and nose is actually hazardous waste. We found formaldehyde and even aniline and noticed that unknown artificial fragrances were being applied to cover any unpleasant chemical smells from the mask. In the case of the blue-coloured surgical masks, we found cobalt – which can be used as a blue dye. All in all, we have a chemical cocktail in front of our nose and mouth that has never been tested for either toxicity or any long-term effects on health.”
Dr Dieter Sedlak, managing director and co-founder of Modern Testing Services, found other chemicals as a result of his own tests. He also detected formaldehyde and found evidence of hazardous fluorocarbons, which are heavily restricted.
Fluorocarbons are toxic to human health and scientists have called for them to be banned.
This news won’t come as any surprise to author and former GP Dr. Vernon Coleman who published “Proof That Facemasks Do More Harm Than Good” last year.

Share this information far and wide. This government wants to standardise the wearing of face masks. UK Chief Medical Officer Chris Whitty is on the record as saying that wearing them might become the norm every Winter.
Secondary school children have been told to wear them at all times in classes, although they can opt out. Few are opting out though. Wearing a face mask does not prevent you spreading a virus or contracting one. Your face mask could kill you. Wise up.
