On July 22, 2009, a special meeting was held with 24 leading scientists at the National Institutes of Health to discuss early findings that a newly discovered retrovirus was linked to chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS), prostate cancer, lymphoma, and eventually neurodevelopmental disorders in children.

When Judy Mikovits, PhD 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.

Host Sayer Ji will give us the down low on what happened, how this relates to scientific prejudice, and what it all means.

  • Why is Judy’s new book called Plague?
  • What’s a human retrovirus and how does transmission occur? What’s the amount of retrovirus found in the normal population?
  • What do we know about retroviruses and chronic disease?
  • How do environmental toxins add to the problem?
  • Why do the CDC and NIH view Judy’s research as a threat? Is it related to author Hillary Johnson‘s foreword: A Disease Able to Affect the Economies of Nations?
  • What kind of research is urgently needed? What advice would you give regarding the best way to structure and fund these studies?
  • What are things we can do to protect our families?

judy-mikovits-headshot>Judy Mikovits, PhD earned her BA from University of Virginia and PhD in biochemistry and molecular biology from George Washington University. In her 35 year quest to understand and treat chronic diseases, she has studied immunology, natural products chemistry, epigenetics, virology, and drug development. In 20 years, she rose from lab tech to director of the lab of Antiviral Drug Mechanisms at the National Cancer Institute before leaving to direct the Cancer Biology program at EpiGenX Pharmaceuticals in Santa Barbara, CA. She became attracted to the plight of patients with chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS) and autism and is primarily responsible for demonstrating the relationship between immune based inflammation and these diseases. She has published over 50 scientific papers. View the book trailer and listen to a short conversation with the authors of Plague.

    Thirty two years of not one good day with this illness. At 71 I find it hard to believe there will be any help for me.

      I have had ME/CFS for 36 years. I understand the frustration and the life lost. So much is lost…career, income, colleagues, vacations, a stable home, family. What I have not lost is the essence of my spirit and my friends. But poverty comes with this illness. Judy’s story needs to be heard. Her depth of knowledge is unparalleled. Read her book. I couldn’t put it down.

    recently i discovered that autoimmune disease like IBS, osteoartritis etc, is linked to bacteria in the gut named Prevotella copri

    Swedish people were vaccinated in autumn 2009 with the swine flu vaccine . This led to 30 people fell ill with ME caused by the vaccine. Probably it is even today a large number of people who are ill but not diagnosed yet .

      Can you please tell me what was going on with regards to this vaccine, this is the first I have heard of it? I’m an RN in California and I got the flu that never ended on December 24, 2009. I had to take vaccines as a requirement of my job. I had never heard of ME and was told I had post viral syndrome. About a year later, when I was able to function cognitively I began to read about possible causes and came upon the definition of ME and said to myself “oh my God, this is me”! It is been five years now and I remain severely ill and completely bedbound at least 80% of the year! Prior to this I was very athletic riding a bicycle 200 miles weekly along with working a full-time job in case management!!

    At a time when true heroes are hard to find, Judy Mikovits is definitely one of mine. I just wish there was a way to get Judy and Clifford Carnicom together to discuss their research!

    Why should we be surprised? We reap what we sow, or call it karma. We have forced the unthinkable horrors of animal cruelty, calling a it ‘nice’ word like ‘science’ to make it appear acceptable. Billions of sentient, intelligent, loving animal victims with the right to the life God gave them used so cruelly and callously. Justice is merely a balancing of accounts, and we have this one coming. Unfortunately, the innocent get caught up with the guilty.

    I have suffered from Me/Chronic Fatigue for 40+ years. Never had any help from doctors, one even told me to “get out and never come here again” I had to work and never could just stay in bed because no one ever believed me and some people I knew even ridiculed me. I live alone now, eat healthy food and because I can do what I want, I am retired and 80 years old. The illness is still in my body but it is a lot better and when I do not feel well I just take it easy.

    I Practice Nutritional Therapy. I suggest people try colostrum. It contains GcMAF, which activates the immune system macrophages to destroy viruses. It also helps heal intestinal tract autoimmune problems. It also powers up the endocrine system, which increases energy, metabolism, cognitive function and mood. Colostrum contains the amino acid proline, which combined with l-lysine and vitamin C makes collagen. Collagen is what makes connective tissue, like cartilage, muscle, skin, bone, nerves, arteries…. Colostrum also contains growth factors which stimulate the cells of the body to grow and repair the tissues. Another important factor in this combination of colostrum, l-lysine, and vitamin C is that it kills viruses! Try it. It works fast! I have seen no adverse effects. Dosage is 500mg colostrum, 500mg l-lysine, 1000mg C, three times a day. Jarrow Formulas has the best colostrum I have found. $16/bottle. For very serious conditions double the dosage for the first month. I expect this will help for Autism and ADHD as well. Let me know if it helps you. russelldobkins@yahoo.com

    What does this mean for RNA supplements? Would this help or make people with autoimmune deficiencies even more susceptible to pathogens?
