A non-local field theory that breaks discrete symmetries, including C, P, CP, and CPT, but preserves Lorentz symmetry, is presented. We demonstrate that at one-loop level the masses for particle and antiparticle remain equal due to Lorentz symmetry only. An inequality of masses implies breaking of the Lorentz invariance and non-conservation of the usually conserved charges.
