Be Still - An interview with Dr Judy Mikovits

Published August 5, 2022 3,808 Views

Dr Judy Mikovits has a Bachelors Degree in Chemistry from University of Virginia in 1980 and a PhD in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology from George Washington University in 1992. In her forty-year quest to understand the causes, prevent and treat chronic diseases, she has co-authored seminal papers culminating at least a decade of research in each of four fields: immunology, natural products chemistry, epigenetics, and HIV/AIDs drug development. In 2009 Dr Mikovits led the team that first isolated and characterized a new family of human disease-associated retroviruses, XMRVs/HGRVS.

In this episode, we discuss the following:

- In 2009 Dr Mikovits co-authored a paper with Frank Ruscetti and others titled “Detection of an infectious retrovirus, XMRV, in blood cells of patients with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome”, which was published in the Science Journal.

- This was an important discovery. XMRV is xenotropic murine leukemia related virus. Murine means mice. Dr Mikovits explains why this paper is important and how this family of viruses was found by her team.

- Dr Judy describes how she cultured the XMRV virus in a human cell line. She never grew mouse lines.

- The paper was published in 2009 in Science but the journal changed the title to “..An infectious virus.” But the original title of the paper had indicated multiple strains and variants. Other changes were made by the journal and 2/3 of the data was removed from the paper.

- Dr Berkhout in January 2011, in Frontiers in Microbiology, said the following in his paper: “We hypothesize that mouse cells or human cell lines used for vaccine production could have been contaminated with a replicating variant of the XMRV precursors encoded by the mouse genome.” See link to paper below.

- Dr Mikovits explains that all our vaccines are made in cell lines, either human (aborted fetal cells) or animal (monkey, dog, mouse, cow blood).

- The MMR vaccine has each vaccine portion cultured in different cell lines, and then added together, so the dirtiness is compounded. None of these vaccines are purified to remove any animal viruses.

- Dr Mikovits explains the function of the RNase L enzyme. It gobbles up RNA viruses. However, 13% of the US population has a genetic defect which means this enzyme does not degrade RNA viruses fast enough. This is an issue for the children under 3 years old, when they are vaccinated, they would not degrade the retroviruses that may be in the vial fast enough. In particular, African American boys carry this mutation more then any other group.

- We discuss why the vaccines are not adequately purified? Can they be purified.

- What happened after the XMRV paper was published in 2009. Why did the editors of Science retract the paper in 2011.

- Comments made in 2010 by Suzanne Vernon, head of the patient advocacy group for CFS (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome) at that time. “Agency heads are scared to death about how the patient population will react if XMRV works out?”

- Dr Judy discusses the Italian study that revealed the retroviruses and other contaminants found in the MMRV (Priorix Tetra) vaccine. 2017/2018. See the link below.

- Dr Judy reviews the Italian study by Antonietta Gatti and Stefano Montanari in 2017 showing nanoparticles in over 40 different vaccines tested by these scientists. (See link to paper below).

- We discuss her anti-retroviral therapy and how patients responded to it.

- Dr Judy discusses her faith, in particular how her faith gave her strength when she was in jail for 5 days.
