List of content not utilised in this report

There are constraints within any report. The largest constraint in this instance is knowing when to stop the research. The amount of evidence/data/hypotheses and information on the negative effects of wearing a face mask is almost overwhelming. Therefore, although the following links to subject matter may have been viewed by the author as informative, a decision has been made to exclude most of the other reports. This list is not exhaustive, there is a lot more available, however time and space constraints rule that only a fraction of available evidence can be documented in this appendix.
