    I’ve read in several places that the actual flu virus is smaller than the pores on these masks. Yet the masks are still recommended because the virus is often passed in fluid secretions which are larger than the pores. Some, though, say the masks aren’t really effective, but are better than nothing (and are readily available). Can you comment on this? I’ve done a lot of research and it seems like the masks are worth purchasing, but that the users need to know that they don’t offer total protection (and other precautions should be taken because of this limited protection). What are your thoughts?

    Last year I bought a box of N95 masks-medium size. I have a friend who is a nurse and she let me know that they come in sizes and that you need to buy the right size. I tried a masks on, my husband tried a mask on, his mother tried a mask on, and I had all of my children try on a mask. All of my children are now adults, and the medium size fit all of us. Then we had our four-year old grandchild try on a medium sized masks (since that was the only kind we had), and the masks was too large. It would not keep any viruses from entering his system. He needs a mask that is much smaller.

    I went looking for bulk deals on the masks. According to your calculations (six in our family), we would need over 500 masks, but 72 would need to be child sized. I cannot find any disposable children’s masks, but I did find one that can be washed, with new filters put in each time. It is rated to N94, not N95, but has no gaps like the bigger masks would on small kids (my kids are 2,5, 10 and 12 – the 12 year old is adult sized, but the 10 year old is very petite). Have you found anything for kids?

    I have been thinking exactly what you posted about the peanut butter recall. Yeah! I have lots of peanut butter in my food storage that is good! One of the many blessing we get when we are prepared!

    I have never found masks for kids. I have been told taping them to the face is the preferred way but this sounds awful to me. I have some bandannas stored and we are planning to have the kids tie a bandanna over the mask to hold it down. We’ll just tell them we are playing bad guys and good guy and they get to be the bad guys. I know this isn’t perfect but if anyone has a better idea I’d love to hear it. As far as storing masks is concerned it is the recommendation of the World Health Organization and every health organization I know. Cities and hospitals are all storing masks and as long as they say it will help I will store. They may not be 100% effective but they are absolutely better than nothing. We really don’t know what the “size” of the pandemic germ is until it arrives. Mutations can not be predicted. Last year we thought Tamiflu was the answer to a treatment and now it has become resistant to the H5N1 strain so we really need to wait and see. I say stock masks and if you never need them use them for people with allergies or have some great mad scientist birthday parties for the kids. They really don’t have to go to waste. We are all hoping we never need them.

  6. After reading through the article, I just feel that I really need more info. Could you share some more resources please?

    The HIV vaccine has been submitted for approval to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to begin human toxicology tests and two phases of TCM trials in the United States.

  9. Wow! Didn’t know you needed more than one for work. Thanks for the info.

  10. So what’s the difference between the 95 and 99 masks?

  11. Actually, I’m pretty sure there’s a kind of N95 respirator that you can wear for 24 hours.. definitely something to consider.
