I Don't Wear a Mask -- You Do as You Please

I am not wearing a mask to protect myself against corona.

This for a few reasons. First, it is not really protecting us from others, but others from us, in case we would sneeze or cough on them.

Second, the mask is greatly reducing the amount of oxygen we are getting, which, among many other ill effects means a rise in our stress hormones cortisol and adrenaline -- which lower our immunity to any disease, from an infection to heart disease, to cancer, you name it.

Let me remind you how crucial oxygen is to you -- unlike food and water, without which you can live for weeks, you don't survive deprivation of oxygen after some minutes. That mask is not allowing your body to get enough oxygen, the biggest users of it being brain and heart.

Third, with our moist breath being caught on the inside of the mask, we are allowing any bugs to be collected there, since they thrive on moisture. Remember that warning on the bottles of all medications and nutritional supplements -- to "keep them at a dry and cool place". You may even find a little pouch in many of them, which is there to absorb the moisture and prevent bugs to feed on that stuff.

Fourth, with each exhalation we are normally releasing through our lungs many toxins and some dead materials -- which get collected on our mask, and inhaled back into our system.

And five, for Pete's sake, our emotional equilibrium gets quite disturbed with this covering our identity, while we are going around like faceless clowns in a circus filled with other faceless clowns.

You may think how I am making all this up, but check it out with any doctor, and they will confirm it all -- if there is an honest bone left in their spine, without political pressures making them spineless.

They might even add to everything I have said this fact that many of those masks being used have fiberglass in them, which is definitely not good for lungs.

And back to the psychological downside of wearing a mask, we are deprived of our facial communication with others, unable to show our personality through our facial expressions -- literally walking around like an anonymous, a nobody, like "just another mask".

And these are the reasons why I, for one, am not wearing a mask. Hey, don't wait to read my disclaimer at the end -- you do whatever you see as necessary, I am not a doctor to tell you what is good for you. I am merely sharing what I am doing, or not doing -- and why.

In this section of my article, and in the rest of it, I am expressing my own position about the subject of corona and preventative measures. Nobody has to follow my example.

I, Personally, See Distancing as Cruel and Unnecessary

Distancing has a tremendous impact on our default sense of being a social specie. It damages that sense of togetherness, of ability to express love, affection, and emotional support through a hug, a kiss, a handshake, a pat on the back.

I may be using some too strong words, but in my private opinion, this is a crime against the spirit of the mankind -- while family functions, weddings, places of entertainment, restaurants, libraries, clubs, sports facilities are forbidden, and holidays are merely a matter of memories, not planning.

We can't even go to a park, a place where we could calm our nerves from all this charade. And a charade it is, since this virus -- whatever it really is -- isn't airborne, it won't "jump from person to person", even if they are standing shoulder to shoulder to each other.

Indeed, we are getting an incredibly false picture about a "deadly" bug, which made it necessary that we are 2 metres apart at public places.

It truly takes someone brain-dead or completely brainwashed not to see how this distancing is not preventing anything, it's only hurting our very basic sense of our freedom, our closeness to others, our peace of mind.

Not even to elaborate much again about what it does to our immune system, while the paranoia from avoiding others creates stress of survival. It triggers those primordial, animalistic instincts of life in a pack with "every creature around us posing a potential threat".

To all of you who are, while reading this, prone to see it as a 'badmouthing against a very necessary protective measure" -- let me repeat something that I stated elsewhere as my main argument against this corona business.

Namely, every year about 650,000 people die worldwide during regular flu season, and none of these protective measures were enforced -- whereas, at my last check, some over 230,000 have died "from corona" -- if it was corona they died from. Compare the numbers. Think for yourself, don't take my word for it.

Quarantine -- When Home Becomes a Prison

It's a well known fact that our homes are much more polluted and infested with bugs than any regular outdoors, of course, excepting dump sites and alike.

For one thing that may not be too familiar, a lot of that dust being collected at our homes comes -- guess from where. From our dead skin cells, which are favorite foods to some bugs. We shed an incredible amount of 40,000 dead cells per minute, which yearly adds up to about 9 pounds, or 4 kilos.

So, this quarantine crap is not really my idea of keeping ourselves in an environment which would be all that much healthier than the outside.

Now, should I also add the electronic pollution at our homes, coming from all our electronic gadgets, TV, DVD and high definition machines, computer, printer, and yes -- that ever busy cell phone. Throw in a couple of electronic clocks just to make the picture complete.

But, maybe more than any other, it's our TV, that crazy box that doesn't only emanate those harmful rays, but is also showering us with highly toxic news of which we never have enough.

Especially these days, while we don't want to miss a single new report about new numbers of those dying from corona.

I must say, humans are a funny breed. We may even believe that much of those numbers are probably false, since people are dying from other diseases, and many of them are just additionally infected by a virus -- "corona" or not. We know perfectly well that people are also dying from that "regular flu" -- remember, up to 650,000 die from it each year, nowhere being mentioned -- and we still fall for those alarming news.

What quarantine does to us psychologically could be described in several pages in all details and from all angles -- but suffice it to say that it does a big damage there. For the first time -- ever since mother grounded us for a whole weekend -- our home is getting a character of a prison, and even prisoners get to go out for a stroll in their backyard. Their sins must be milder than ours.

The pain of separation and isolation goes deeper than we are willing to justify it with "preventive measures". It's wounding our pride of free human beings. It's raising the questions -- some of those that appear a lot in conspiracy theories.


Like in all of my "corona" articles, here are a few words of my disclaimer -- just to legally cover my ass. I am not a doctor, and nothing in this article is to be taken for a medical advice.

So, keep your mask on, keep your distance from others, and stay at home. Amen.


Please listen to this doctor in the video below, you will be amazed at what's really going on with "Corona".
