Since the beginning of this year, mask use has become much more prevalent in day to day life.
Covid-19, which is a disease that comes from the SARS-CoV-2 virus, has caused another rift in our fragile society — mask vs. no mask. Most people are under the impression that if everyone wears a mask, that Covid-19/SARS-CoV-2 will just up and disappear and everything will return back to normal. However, the people with this belief shouldn’t hold their breath.
“The Case Against Masks,” came out in July of this year, just a few months after the nationwide lockdown. In this short book, Dr. Judy A. Mikovits and Kent Heckenlively, JD, pick 10 reasons that show why mask use should be limited. The authors use quotes and information found from official sources like the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), The Mayo Clinic, The New England Journal of Medicine, etc., to help get their points across.
Within this book, the authors cover topics about the effects of wearing a mask for an extended period of time, what it really means to be an “asymptomatic carrier,” the different types of masks and how effective they are, risk of airborne transmission, which underlying conditions contribute the Covid-19 mortality rate, how long the virus stays active on surfaces and many more things.
The best thing about this read is that the authors shed light on topics that the Mainstream Media (MSM) conveniently omits. They leave it up to the reader to decide how they want to proceed with face mask usage while providing the reader with information from several different areas.
Dr. Judy A. Mikovits spent twenty years at the National Cancer Institute, working with Dr. Frank Ruscetti, one of the founding fathers of human retrovirology, and has co-authored more than 50 peer-reviewed scientific papers.
Kent Heckenlively, JD, is a science teacher, attorney, founding editor of Age of Autism, and writer for Bolen Report.
