Judy Mikovits PhD: Leading the Charge into Medicine’s Holy War

Plague: One Scientist’s Intrepid Search for the Truth about Human Retroviruses and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Autism, and Other Diseases, by Judy Mikovits PhD.

My interview with Judy Mikovits PhD is now archived on my host page at The Liberty Beacon. What did we discuss? Implications of global warming and virus template replication. Mutated retroviruses that are plaguing all of us. Gardasil and how it accelerates aging and degeneration. And how the government is aware of all of this. Why the MMR vaccines is so dangerous. How scientists and researchers are used as medical guinea pigs as they are unknowingly continuously exposed to pathogens, and retroviruses in the lab. ME/CFS – and the cause. And the retro-viral plague that is infecting all of us. Please listen and share. Be prepared. We are talking about a plague of pandemic proportions. We are talking about a plague that will affect all of us for generations.

We are not crazy – we are sick. We are not contaminated – we are infected. ~ Judy Mikovits, PhD

That is the battle cry issued by Judy Mikovits, PhD – as she continues to lobby for truth and justice within a plague of corruption.

Are we in the midst of a plague? Are the unintended consequences of biologic medicines having adverse effects? Have the retroviruses found in all biologic medicines infecting our judy-mikovitsbodies – affecting our brains and causing severe neurodevelopmental damage and inflammation.  Have these retroviruses gone viral?

On July 22, 2009, a special meeting was held with twenty-four leading scientists at the National Institutes of Health to discuss early findings that a newly discovered retrovirus was linked to chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), prostate cancer, lymphoma, and eventually neurodevelopmental disorders in children.

When Dr. Judy Mikovits finished her presentation the room was silent for a moment, then one of the scientists said, “Oh my God!” The resulting investigation would be like no other in science.

For Dr. Mikovits, a twenty-year veteran of the National Cancer Institute, this was the midpoint of a five-year journey that would start with the founding of the Whittemore-Peterson Institute for Neuro-mmune Disease at the University of Nevada, Reno, and end with her as a witness for ​the federal government against her former employer, Harvey Whittemore, for Illegal campaign contributions to U. S. Senate Majority Leader, Harry Reid.

On this journey Dr. Mikovits would face the scientific prejudices against CFS, wander into the minefield that is autism, and through it all struggle to maintain her faith in God and the Plagueprofession to which she had dedicated her life. Plague is a story for anybody interested in the peril and promise of science at the very highest levels in our country.​

The Dark Side of Medical Science

Mikovits was one of the researchers who reported finding a link between a retrovirus called XMRV and myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS), a disorder now affecting over 1 million people in the U.S. with no proven explanation and no cure. The findings were reported in the journal – Science.

What ensued was another Kafkaesque tale of bizarre proportion. Dr. Mikovits entered the surreal world Kafka wrote about in his book “The Trial.” From holding the position of an esteemed researcher, Mikovits was discredited, fired, incarcerated, forced into bankruptcy becoming nothing less than a prisoner in the ‘Holy War of Medicine’.

According to Mikovits, retroviruses have been unleashed on the unsuspecting public causing everything from neurological disorders like autism to autoimmune disorders like ME/CFS. ME is now at pandemic proportions – and most people have not even heard about it until they have become infected with the XMRV virus. And then their lives change forever.

XMRV has been on the radar since the 1970’s. It did not exist in the 50’s and 60’s. By 1980 the CDC made this newly acquired autoimmune disease a top priority since 1980’s. And yet the public knows very little about this retrovirus. Where did it come from. What was different in the 70’s? What Dr. Mikovits has to say is going to shock you.

What is a retrovirus?

Retroviridae is a family of enveloped viruses that replicate in a host cell through the process of reverse transcription. A retrovirus is a single-stranded RNA virus that stores its nucleic acid in the form of an mRNA genome (including the 5′ cap and 3′ PolyA tail) and, as an obligate parasite, targets a host cell. Once inside the host cell cytoplasm, the virus uses its own reverse transcriptase enzyme to produce DNA from its RNA genome, the reverse of the usual pattern, thus retro (backwards). This new DNA is then incorporated into the host cell genome by an integrase enzyme, at which point the retroviral DNA is referred to as a provirus. The host cell then treats the viral DNA as part of its own genome, translating and transcribing the viral genes along with the cell’s own genes, producing the proteins required to assemble new copies of the virus. It is difficult to detect the virus until it has infected the host. At that point, the infection will persist indefinitely. ~Wikipedia

How is it that 20 million around the world have become infected?

Mikovits states that the virus can be transmitted through aerosolization.

Aerosolization is the process or act of converting some physical substance into the form of particles small and light enough to be carried on the air i.e. into an aerosol. The term is often used in medicine to refer specifically to the production of airborne particles (e.g. tiny liquid droplets) containing infectious virus or bacteria. ~Wikipedia

But what if these viruses (who I might add survive parasitically in the body by sucking nutrition out of the cells in the body) can also be passed via blood transfusion – or in emergency rooms – or during surgery – or even in the lab. Dr. Mikovits is concerned that she was inadvertently exposed to the XMRV virus through her work – and now takes nutritional supplements to support her immune system from a retro-viral assault.

Gardasil HPV Vaccine – Accelerated Degeneration of the Human Genome

Last Friday, I listened to an interview with Dr. Mikovits on Fearless Parent, hosted by Sayer Ji of Green Med Info fame. The show entitled; Human Retrovirus, Chronic Illness, & Scientific Prejudice held me spellbound. And then I got a kick in the stomach. In 2011, unbeknownst to Dr. Mikovits and myself our worlds collided for a moment in time.

I was with an organization called SANE Vax, at the time writing as many press releases as I could about the dangers of the Gardasil HPV vaccine. I was part of the SANE Vax team when we discovered that multiple vials we had collected from around the world – under different labels and different manufacturing lots – turned out to be contaminated with a recombinant HPV rDNA virus attached to the aluminum in the vaccine. The lab tests were conducted by Dr. Sin Hang Lee of the Milford Medical Lab in Milford, CT.

pandoras boxAnother mother in the group, whose daughter was adversely affected by Gardasil – and who was volunteering at a blood drive, opened the Pandora’s box when she asked what happens if this rDNA is transmitted when giving blood, or transmitted in an emergency room – or during a car accident.

We were all stunned. And then I proceeded to write a press release about the possibilities of this type of biohazard recombinant viral transmission.  The release was entitled: Contaminated Gardasil Vaccine May Be Infectious – Potentially Causing Millions More to Become Sick via Blood Transference: Merck Doctor Admits Contaminant Does Not Belong in the Vaccine

We posted the release on social media and immediately, some parents of Gardasil injured girls were understandably infuriated: not only were their daughter’s sick (infected according to Dr. Mikovits) but  by even suggesting that they may now be contaminated made them into pariahs. Shaken, I took down the post on face book, but left it on my blog.

At midnight, just as I was retiring – I received a phone call from my web master (Say what?) who asked: “What the hell did you do today?” (Say what?) I said I wrote an emotionally exhausting and very frightening press release and posted it to the blog.

His response – not so favorable. Our blog, holyhormones.com was under a major cyber attack that originated in a northern province in China where Merck & GSK have pharmaceutical plants. If my web master, Nick Batik – who has been such a faithful compatriot all these years – had not decided to do an update on the site, holyhormones.com might have been forever gone by morning. In Nick’s words “the site was getting pummeled so many times – it would be like a woman being stoned to death in the middle east.

After hearing Mikovits on the radio show – and the hell she was going through in 2011 – and then a group of mothers/researchers/vaccine safety awareness advocates came up with their own  “Oh My God,” like the scientists who listened to Mikovits in 2009, I now know that the cyber attack on my site was not a coincidence. It was an admission on the part of pharma that we are now indeed in the midst of a plague of pandemic proportions.


JUDY MIKOVITS, PHD, earned her BA from University of Virginia and PhD in biochemistry and molecular biology from George Washington University. In her thirty-five-year quest to understand and treat chronic diseases, she has studied immunology, natural products chemistry, epigenetics, virology, and drug development. In 2006, she became attracted to the plight of families with ME/CFS and autism and is primarily responsible for demonstrating the relationship between immune dysfunction and these diseases.

  1. could this be why we are seeing governments focusing huge efforts on many neurological illnesses being psychological e.g. no accountability no litigation

  2. Elizabeth Szlek says:

    I think you meant to use the word “pariahs”, not “piranhas”. You should correct it.

  3. Thank you, Elizabeth. How thoughtful and kind.
