Scenario was scare mongering

This is in response to the author of the “Super Dad” letter.

Please stay in your basement with a mask, goggles, face shield, binky and blanket. No one, you or the government, should tell us how to live our lives. There is something called the Constitution that provides for liberty and freedom.

Face masks are not the cure-all. One of the largest studies on the efficacy of face masks, published in the Annals of Internal Medicine, provided the following results. A study of 4,800 subjects (2,400 with masks and 2,400 without masks) found only .3% higher infection rate by unmasked versus masked.

Blue masks available at grocery stores are often sterilized with ethylene oxide, which is a known carcinogen. Breathing is inhibited, and inhaling particles, which comes from mask wearing can put you at risk for lung diseases including pulmonary fibrosis. All of this information was included in an article written by Conan Milner.

Keep wearing your mask, it is especially effective when driving alone. Oh, I bet you don’t drive. Automobile accidents account for 1.25 million fatalities per year, so I’m sure you avoid that too.

Freedom and liberty, rather than playing the role of a sheep to the government is very important. We all die of something. Enjoy life.

That letter, in my opinion, was a childish bunch of scare mongering.
