Face masks are not an unmitigated blessing. Breathing in your own respiratory waste is not healthy. From Gary G. Kohls, M.D., at lewrockwell.com:

Dr. Russell Blaylock has written a comprehensive fact-filled article on face masks, describing the research showing that the use of masks in many patients can easily:
1] cause hypoxia in some patients;
2] cause hypercapnia in those same patients;
3] impair one’s immunity; harmful respiratory viruses (and bacteria as well – good ones and bad ones) when exhaling (thus forcing the viruses – and the bacteria – to be rebreathed again and again instead of being excreted from the body’s respiratory system); and
5] increase the concentration of potentially-harmful viruses in the nasal passages which could then increase the likelihood of those viruses entering the brain via the olfactory nerves.
Read the excerpts from the Blaylock article below about mask-wearing and ask yourself: “why haven’t the many scientists, “bought” CDC and DOH bureaucrats, “bought” politicians, journalists, etc think about the downsides of requiring, under penalty of law, the wearing of masks by perfectly healthy, uninfected, asymptomatic people – especially those that are living in areas of the country where the risk of coming in contact with a case of COVID-19 is 1 in 10,000!
