Titanium nanoparticles in Covid masks cause cancer: researchers
Everything about masking appears harmful with no quality evidence of benefit, so why are they forcing it on you? (Updated 10/15/22)
A February 2022 article in Nature raises concern about Covid masks’ shedding of nanoparticle fibers of titanium dioxide, classified by the European Chemicals Agency and other research groups as possibly carcinogenic to humans — and definitely to rodents — by inhalation.
Although titanium dioxide (TiO2) is a suspected human carcinogen when inhaled, fiber-grade TiO2 (nano)particles were demonstrated in synthetic textile fibers of face masks intended for the general public.
STEM-EDX analysis on sections of a variety of single use and reusable face masks visualized agglomerated near-spherical TiO2 particles in non-woven fabrics, polyester, polyamide and bi-component fibers.
Median sizes of constituent particles ranged from 89 to 184 nm, implying an important fraction of nano-sized particles (< 100 nm).
The total TiO2 mass determined by ICP-OES ranged from 791 to 152,345 µg per mask.
The estimated TiO2 mass at the fiber surface ranged from 17 to 4394 µg, and systematically exceeded the acceptable exposure level to TiO2 by inhalation (3.6 µg), determined based on a scenario where face masks are worn intensively.
No assumptions were made about the likelihood of the release of TiO2 particles itself, since direct measurement of release and inhalation uptake when face masks are worn could not be assessed.
The importance of wearing face masks against COVID-19 is unquestionable. [JH comment: There is no high-quality evidence for this statement, likely placed in the article for political reasons to support the government’s prevailing false narrative on masks.]
Even so, these results urge for in depth research of (nano)technology applications in textiles to avoid possible future consequences caused by a poorly regulated use and to implement regulatory standards phasing out or limiting the amount of TiO2 particles, following the safe-by-design principle.
This is yet another reason to suspect nefarious motives for mandating masks that could be making men infertile.
It’s strange masks are demanded by nonscientist Catholic and Jewish leaders including rabbis, despite there being no good evidence masks reduce viral infection rates.

Rabbis constitute the main group pushing Mayor Eric Adams to force masking of New York residents including children.
This might have ill effects on the kidney and other organs.
Masks also increase the work of breathing to maintain proper gas exchange.
We need to resist this tyranny.
