The country’s national public health agency warned Canadians to not use face masks that contain graphene because people could inhale graphene particles.
Wearing face masks could cause catastrophic lung problems, especially if they are the kind coated with graphene. This is despite the fact that advocates of masks and mask mandates believe that wearing them is essential to preventing the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) from spreading. The latest evidence proving the dangers of wearing face masks comes from Health Canada, the country’s national public health agency. It warned Canadians to not use face masks that contain graphene because people could inhale graphene particles. Graphene is a nanomaterial that supposedly has antiviral and antibacterial properties. Manufacturers have been coating face masks with graphene and selling them as miracle cures for COVID-19. According to the proponents of graphene-coated face masks, there are three main ways these masks supposedly damage viruses and harmful cells. First, microscopic graphene particles have sharp edges that allegedly mechanically damage viruses and cells as they pass through them. Second, graphene is negatively charged with electrons. These electrons supposedly electrostatically trap and inactivate viruses. Third, graphene allegedly damages cells by impairing their metabolism.
Research shows graphene can cause significant lung injuries.
