Nature Publishes Huang Wei’s Comment: Face Masks Could Raise Pollution Risks
On October 1, Nature published the comment article by Dr. Huang Wei, Peking University School of Public Health, titled “Face Masks Could Raise Pollution Risks” ( Nature 2019, 574:29-30). The article focused on the core problem of public hygienic prevention against the background of global air pollution. For the first time it was pointed out that there was a misunderstanding of wearing face masks in public health prevention. From the perspective of public hygienic promotion, the article emphasized pushing forward the global control of air pollution as the top priority.
Based on the health risk evaluation of global air pollution and the systematic evaluation of individual prevention and protection research, the writer proposed the expertise and core argument that the top priority of public health promotion against the background of global air pollution be the continuous rigid control of air pollution to ensure the clean air.
