The key study relied upon by the CDC and IDSA to justify mass mask wearing worldwide is wrong. We've asked the journal to retract the study. If they don't, we'll go after the journal.
I think you’re a parasitic bulllshitter, preying on people that can’t see through your amateur crap. You’re no scientist, that’s for sure. I’ll stay with credible sources, thanks, you keep shaking down the dummies.
Were these studies of cloth, surgical or N-95 masks?
One more fly in the ointment of the Bangladesh study, not considered by Prof Fenton: assuming (valid or not) that all mask wearers in the villages in the test study actually wore their masks unfailingly, it has been shown by other studies that the psychological effects of mask-wearing induce alarm in other people which causes them to instinctively distance themselves from the mask-wearer.
As a confounder, it is possible that this may be the dominant factor which produced the modest results of the study, since physical distancing (various) has been shown to be effective in preventing spread.
The same or much more significant results may then have been produced by everyone wearing signs around their neck proclaiming "Stay Away!" or hearkening back to much earlier times, "Unclean!"
Steve, you are one of my favorite people on the planet....as a matter of fact, i would actually believe you if you told me you were Jesus. Have you tried walking on water? The work you are doing is priceless, you are a true hero. I hope you take the entire industry down...along the media, the politicians and big pharma.
The fact that they chose Bangladesh as the venue for a study to prove the efficacy of masks should have sent up a red flag from the get-go.
Most Germans in the 1930s and 1940s were not inherently evil or bad people. But they all got suckered into following the groupthink and supported a terrible government.
Same thing happened with the scientific community this year. Lots of good scientists drank the groupthink koolaid and went with the flow. Hope they all get to intimately know how that generation of Germans felt in the late 1940s.
They will continue to double down on the junk science. Never trust anyone who views crisis as an opportunity. Eventually they will simply foment crisis.
You are fighting a good fight, Mr. Kirsch. But, it is a bit too late. 2/3 of the population are going to "disappear" one way or another.
After an extensive search, I had a New Patient appointment Monday morning, with an unaffiliated osteopath. Unfortunately, my first reality check came with the sign on the door which read "masks required" and the person inside, behind the desk, told me I had better leave if I couldn't wear one. (Here I thought we were done with required masking.) Back to searching. I found another doc through MDVIP, a private concierge-type org, another osteopath, and met him today. He told me had three mRNA shots and advises all his patients get them (then sharing the story of one patient who almost died who hadn't been injected) - although he would honor my choice - but then stated he follows "science" and wears a mask to protect himself and anyone else who needs him to do so - but didn't in my presence. I suggested he look up Steve Kirsch to make a million bucks. The landscape is bleak for those who need a sound physician.
Something new for Steve (but please sit down first) from https://medicalxpress.com/news/2022-05-hidden-benefit-facemasks-severity-covid-.html
"Early in the COVID-19 pandemic, it was suggested that people who were infected while masked might experience mild illness and could be considered "variolated".
The new mathematical model allows researchers to estimate the potential impact of this effect on the population as a whole.
"If the variolation effect is strong, then the number of severe cases, and consequently pressure on health-care systems, could be substantially reduced if most people wear masks –– even if masks don't prevent them from being infected," says senior author David Earn, Faculty of Science Research Chair in Mathematical Epidemiology and Professor of Mathematics at McMaster and Canada's Global Nexus for Pandemics & Biological Threats."
There is more unbelievable nonsense there in that post, but this here is enough.
Nobel knew what he was doing with his decision not to give his precious prizes to mathematicians..
The Lancet already discredited themselves by hiring Peter Daszik (sp?) to "investigate" the origins of the pandemic. Will Science discredit themselves as well?
Sometimes this puts us in a pickle. The Lancet has subsequently published things useful to us, but we can't really cherry pick. Either the journal is valid or discredited, not when it suits us.
You are doing a great work exposing this fraud at a time when they seem to be getting their way by default. Keep it up! And thanks
If one were to look how virology was discovered, one would quickly discover how useless these masks are.
Google "Chamberland filter".
You would also expect masks to make no difference to transmission if there was no virus.
We know the PCR test was a joke so we would expect positive test results to be similar for those masked or unmasked.
If half the population wore a tea cosy on the head and half didn't we would expectvery close to half of all PCR positives to be in either group,onemight be slightly higher than the other purely as a matter of chance.
What do I think will happen?
The medical authorities and media will memory hole the information.
If they ignore it there is nothing to explain to the public as the public will not know.
