Could wearing a mask over 8 hours a day be harmful now? To tell you the truth it sure feels that way as my breaths with one on after a over year under this protocol are more difficult. I understand that during the CDC guidelines at the time this might have been needed with Covid ravaging our country but now I believe it might be doing more harm then good forcing employees in private industries to wear them. Here are just a few factors (below) to consider.
(1) SWEAT– Wearing masks all day long produces sweat which contains particles of urine something we wouldn’t want to sniff yet breathe in.
(2) DUST & DIRT – These substances can accumulate whether the mask is being worn or left in one area over time.
(3) REDUCED OXYGEN- Not only do masks reduce the amount of bad things that come in our mouth but the good fresh oxygenated air.
(4) MENTAL HEALTH- It can’t be good for one’s well being not to see another person’s smile and hiding one’s teeth from the world.
