Mask Wearers Are Inhaling Toxic and Cancer-Causing Compounds, Study Finds

Wearing a mask led to inhalation of volatile organic compounds at up to eight times the safety limit.

WASHINGTON, D.C. — More evidence is coming out suggesting that wearing a mask may be severely harmful to your health.

A peer-reviewed study by researchers from Jeonbuk University in South Korea published in May warns of the dangers of total volatile organic compounds (TVOCs) in KF94 masks, which is the standard used in Korea similar to the N95 used in the United States.

“The concentrations of TVOCs in KF94 masks are high enough to pose a concern based on indoor air quality guidelines established by the German Federal Environment Agency,” the authors state.

KF94 and N95 masks are made from thermoplastics polypropylene and polyurethane nylon. The study found that using a mask of this type exposes the wearer to up to eight times the safe limit of TVOCs. This poses a risk of health hazards – even including the development of cancers.

Volatile organic compounds from the manufacturing process can irritate the eyes, nose, and throat, cause difficulty breathing and nausea, damage the central nervous system and organs like the liver – and in some cases, cause cancer, according to the American Lung Association.

The Florida Standard has previously reported on a study that linked the mask wearing itself – irrespective of the chemicals that they contain – to cardiopulmonary stress.

Last week, rumors started that the Biden administration was planning to reinstate mask mandates, testing and other rights-violating measures – with reports of colleges, hospitals and a film production company in Los Angeles forcing students and employees to wear masks indoors.
