More censorship of doctors discussing health matters

In mid-November 2020, I had 20,100 followers on Twitter, and was then suddenly suspended. I saved the receipts, and show what happened below.
Twitter says the reason for the suspension is the following tweet:
The Endnote 10 referred to in this tweet, links directly to the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) website. That link is https://www.fsis.usda.gov/wps/wcm/connect/bf97edac-77be-4442-aea4-9d2615f376e0/Carbon-Dioxide.pdf?MOD=AJPERES and that document is here. See paragraph 3, line 1:
I posted indirectly a link to this document by the USDA and in the tweet that led to suspension, I asked, “What do you think the exhaled CO2 in your mask is slowly doing to you and your kids?”
I am a licensed physician, a naturopathic medical doctor, NMD, Arizona license 06-948. The naturopathic medical curriculum consists of approximately twice the number of courses and twice the classroom hours as conventional medical school. Here is my discussion of that and my experience in both of those educational settings.
I have spent decades of my life studying medicine, practicing medicine, and writing and speaking on topics of concern in the area of public health, as well as cancer. Regarding the hazards of masks, my research team and I have written the most comprehensive research that we have seen on mask hazards. Those peer-reviewed studies are on https://PDMJ.org. Throughout the 5 studies that we have produced, we cited over 200 studies from the peer-reviewed published medical literature.
And then a funny thing happened:
Craig Hennigan, PhD in Communications at Truman State University, tweeted an interesting boast in response to another person's tweet that my account was suspended:
This is Hennigan’s Twitter profile.
Given the contrast in backgrounds between Prof. Hennigan and me, how is he qualified to determine that the health information I proved is misinformation? Further, how does my question in the tweet constitute misinformation? I simply asked about the effect of carbon dioxide accumulation in masked airspace. We had already shown that CO2 accumulates over time (measured in seconds) in this peer-reviewed paper:
Much worse than censorship of me is what happened to Dr. Zev Zelenko, and to those whose survival from COVID-19 relies on Dr. Zelenko's knowledge and experience. Dr. Zelenko has shown the world how to heal COVID-19 through his own experiences as a physician with thousands of his own patients. He set out a very simple inexpensive strategy that is easily followed. For this he should receive the Nobel Prize in Medicine. But now you cannot find Dr. Zelenko on Twitter, because he was also suspended there. His website is here: https://www.vladimirzelenkomd.com/
I am not trying to suggest that physicians are the only ones who should not be censored when discussing health matters. There is no justification for censoring anyone at all for discussing health matters, or any other matters. It's been said that the cure for speech one objects to is more speech, not censorship.
Professor Hennigan’s policing of free speech in collusion with censors in Big Tech is incompatible with a free society. It is Orwellian, and it is most characteristic of fascism, and the earliest moves of creeping fascist dictatorship. Historically, the next step in rollout of fascism is a “cancel culture” demonizing of others. This professor of communications apparently thinks that the best way to communicate is to silence opposing voices, and to leave the arena of public debate restricted to only those of his own ideology.
As for me, I seem to be back on Twitter for the time being. But many essential and admired voices have been silenced by Big Tech. How will Big Tech respond to the public's disgust for this purge?
Frederick Douglass once said of censorship: “To suppress free speech is a double wrong. It violates the rights of the hearer as well as those of the speaker.”
