Kourtney Kardashian in trouble

Reality star Kourtney Kardashian has been slammed after her controversial Instagram post, claiming face masks cause cancer.

 Kardashian shared a conspiracy theory on her Instagram story, saying the PTFE material in blue surgical-style masks increases the risks of certain cancers.

The post, shared with Kardashian’s followers, alleged info was from cancer.org, the website of the American Cancer Society, but the organisation has reportedly distanced itself from Kardashian’s claims.

The post included an image of a typical blue disposable surgical mask, which are used by medical personnel across the globe, and now many citizens.

The ‘Keeping Up With Kardashians’ star captioned the post – which is not attributed to any particular study or research papers – with a wide-eyed emoji and a head-exploding emoji.

Social media users took no time to slam the star pointing out she and the rest of the Kardashian clan had traveled to a tropical island for her sister Kim Kardashian’s birthday bash during the pandemic where they made staff wear masks.

Kardashian’s post – which is not supported by any evidence and has been strongly rebuked by experts – read: “Those Blue Masks Mandated at grocery stores & airplanes are made of PTFE, a carcinogen made of synthetic fluoride.

‘According to Cancer.Org it increases the risk of liver, testicle, pancreas, kidney & breast tumors + ulcerative colitis, thyroid disease, preeclampsia and high cholesterol.’

‘High exposure can cause influenza-like symptoms and hemorrhaging in the lungs, leading to suffocation.’

People lashed out at Kourtney Kardashian, pointing out how staff on the Kardashian clan’s island retreat were wearing masks.
