Look, this has been bugging me since I read a few posts from some very helpful people who, I am sure they have the best intentions but…. THE N100 mask will NOT protect you *IF* this virus does truly mutate into an airborne version. (Even if you buy the organic vapor/H1N1 proven filtering masks or inserts)
Here's a short snippet from 3M regarding the capabilities of the N100:
Approximately 50% of
"particles 30 to 100 μm in size will be inhaled
into the respiratory system. Up to 100% of
particles smaller than 30 microns can be inhaled
into the respiratory system."
