Medical Whistleblower Dr. Judy Mikovits Shares Her Story with Dr. Rebecca Risk

After being wrongfully jailed, amid legal drama, dishonest and ill informed criticism, Dr. Mikovits has faced scientific prejudices and struggled to maintain her faith in God and the profession to which she had dedicated her life. Her book “Plague” is bringing to light this controversial minefield which she has been maneuvering.


Phoenix, AZ -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/01/2016 -- 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!"

This was the start of a controversial debate about the XMVR retrovirus. After being wrongfully jailed, Dr. Mikovits was under a court sanctioned gag order for four years because she refused to destroy the data. She is now a speaking out about the link of XMVR Retrovirus and its suspected link to Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Myalgic Encephalopathy (CFS/ME) and cancer. Her research shows that 6% of the U.S. population is harboring a retrovirus in their bodies that can develop into an acquired immune deficiency. The book "Plague: One Scientist's intrepid Search For the Truth about Human Retroviruses and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Autism, and Other Diseases" documents her story about this legal drama, dishonest and ill informed criticism.
