Harmful Effects of Masks & How TRS Can Help

Many people worldwide utilized medical and non-medical facemasks as non-pharmaceutical interventions for reducing the transmission and infectivity of coronavirus disease-2019 (COVID-19). Although scientific evidence supporting facemasks' efficacy is lacking, adverse physiological, psychological, and health effects are established. It has been hypothesized that facemasks have compromised safety and efficacy profile and should be avoided from use. The current article comprehensively summarizes scientific evidence concerning wearing facemasks in the COVID-19 era, providing prosperous public health and decision-making information.

On January 30, 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) announced a global public health emergency of severe acute respiratory syndrome-coronavirus-2 (SARS-CoV-2) causing illness of coronavirus disease-2019 (COVID-19). As of October 1, 2020, worldwide, 34,166,633 cases were reported, and 1,018,876 have died with virus diagnosis. Interestingly, 99% of the detected cases with SARS-CoV-2 are asymptomatic or have a mild condition, which contradicts with the virus name (severe acute respiratory syndrome-coronavirus-2. Although the infection fatality rate (number of death cases divided by the number of reported cases) initially seems relatively high, 0.029 (2.9%), this overestimation is related to a limited number of COVID-19 tests performed, which biases towards higher rates. Given that asymptomatic or minimally symptomatic cases are several times higher than the number of reported cases, the case fatality rate is considerably less than 1%. This was confirmed by the head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases from the US, stating, "the overall clinical consequences of COVID-19 are similar to those of severe seasonal influenza", having a case fatality rate of approximately 0.1%. Data from hospitalized patients with COVID-19 and the general public indicate that the majority of deaths were among older and chronically ill individuals, supporting the possibility that the virus may exacerbate existing conditions but rarely causes death by itself. SARS-CoV-2 primarily affects the respiratory system and can cause complications such as acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), respiratory failure, and death. However, it is not clear the scientific and clinical basis for wearing facemasks as a protective strategy, given that facemasks restrict breathing, causing hypoxemia and hypercapnia and increasing the risk for respiratory complications, self-contamination, and exacerbation of existing chronic conditions.

1) The practice of wearing facemasks has compromised safety and efficacy profile, 2) Both medical and non-medical facemasks are ineffective in reducing human-to-human transmission and infectivity of SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19. 3) Wearing facemasks has adverse physiological and psychological effects, 4) Long-term consequences of wearing facemasks on health are detrimental.

The human body requires continuous and adequate oxygen (O2) supply to all organs and cells for normal function and survival. Breathing is also an essential process for removing metabolic byproducts [carbon dioxide (CO2)] occurring during cell respiration.

It is well established that significant acute deficit in O2(hypoxemia) and increased levels of CO2 (hypercapnia) even for few minutes can be severely harmful and lethal, while chronic hypoxemia and hypercapnia cause health deterioration, exacerbation of existing conditions, morbidity and ultimately mortality. Emergency medicine demonstrates that 5–6 min of severe hypoxemia during a cardiac arrest will cause brain death with extremely poor survival rates. On the other hand, chronic mild or moderate hypoxemia and hypercapnia, such as from wearing facemasks resulting in shifting to higher contribution of anaerobic energy metabolism, decrease in pH levels, and increase in cells and blood acidity, toxicity, oxidative stress, chronic inflammation, immunosuppression, and health deterioration.

The physical properties of medical and non-medical facemasks suggest that facemasks are ineffective in blocking viral particles due to their difference in scales. According to the current knowledge, the virus SARS-CoV-2 has a diameter of 60 nm to 140 nm [nanometers (billionth of a meter) while medical and non-medical facemasks' thread diameter ranges from 55 µm to 440 µm [micrometers (one-millionth of a meter), which is more than 1000 times larger. Due to the difference in sizes between SARS-CoV-2 diameter and facemasks thread diameter (the virus is 1000 times smaller), SARS-CoV-2 can easily pass through any facemask. In addition, the efficiency filtration rate of facemasks is poor, ranging from 0.7% in a non-surgical, cotton-gauze woven mask to 26% in cotton sweater material. With respect to surgical and N95 medical facemasks, the efficiency filtration rate falls to 15% and 58%, respectively, when even a small gap between the mask and the face exists.

What does wearing a mask have to do with Advanced TRS?

Can TRS help individuals who are required to wear masks on a consistent basis to have a stronger immune system to fight off bacterial infections that are showing to be more common this year than others due to consistent mask-wearing?

Can TRS help to balance the PH of the blood that gets off balance because of the consistent inhalation of our own carbon dioxide?

How the lungs and kidneys maintain the pH balance

The lungs control your body's pH balance by releasing carbon dioxide.

Carbon dioxide is a slightly acidic compound. It's also a waste product produced by cells in the body as they use oxygen. The cells release it into your blood, and it's taken to your lungs.

When you exhale, you're expelling that carbon dioxide, a process that also helps regulate your body's pH balance by reducing acidity.

This is a great time to detox. Obviously, the main thing TRS does is removes heavy metals from body tissues, including the brain, where heavy metals tend to accumulate due to its ability to cross the blood-brain barrier. It is then passed safely through the urinary tract without depleting the body of essential electrolytes or burdening the body's eliminatory systems making it ideal supplementation for healing a range of toxicity-related problems. TRS also balances PH levels and boosts immune system function.

Another benefit of detoxing metals with TRS is the help it will give against Candida and parasites. Candida and parasites actually feed on heavy metals, along with sugar, and store them within biofilms or within their own organism. When people kill Candida with antifungals, the die-off symptoms experienced are partly the result of the release of heavy metals into the body, which overwhelms the liver and cannot be excreted fast enough. This is why detoxing heavy metals first or along with killing Candida and parasites is imperative. If you do not, you risk releasing a lot of toxic metals redistributing throughout the body.

Once the heavy metal concentrations have been reduced, the Zeolite (TRS) latches onto viral pieces or components. Because viruses replicate by first manufacturing viral components and then assembling them into a complete virus, the Zeolite, in essence, removes parts from

the assembly line and blocks viral replication.

It will also buffer blood pH, as a slightly alkaline blood pH (7.35 - 7.45) is essential for good health and optimal immune function. TRS attracts and then buffers excess protons that cause acidity and can help many conditions ranging from acid reflux to Candida and arthritis. In the same way that TRS can buffer excess protons and thus help balance body pH, it can also ease excess glucose and therefore helps reduce blood sugar spikes and lowers insulin dependency.

The cage-like structure of the zeolite also traps free radical molecules, making it an effective antioxidant. It also captures some of the allergens and antigens that trigger allergies, migraines, and asthma and helps to reduce symptoms. A zeolite like TRS can also increase immune system function by removing the toxins and pathogens that depress immune function and interfere with hormone balance. It effectively stimulates the immune system, which further helps deal with toxins, viruses, yeasts, bacteria, and fungi. As a result, many people report feeling increased energy, clarity.

Can my kids take TRS?

Yes! It is safe and highly encouraged to do so, especially (in relation to this article) if they have to wear masks to school every day.

There are a million and one reasons for you to detox heavy metals and other toxins from your body.

TRS removes over 80,000 toxins from the body!
