Book Review: Plague by Kent Heckenlively and Dr. Judy A. Mikovits

By Catherine Austin Fitts

Fake news is scary. Fake food is really scary. Nothing, however, is scarier than fake science.

In 2009, Dr. Judy Mikovits reported her discovery of a retrovirus linked to chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), prostate cancer, lymphoma, and eventually neurodevelopmental disorders in children. It was the beginning of the end of her established career in research science. By 2011, she found herself in shackles, imprisoned by officers with no arrest warrant. I did not know that could happen in America. Thanks to Dr. Mikovits integrity and courage, now I do.

After a prolonged effort to silence her, Mikovits co-authored with Kent Heckenlively Plague: One Scientist’s Intrepid Search for the Truth about Human Retroviruses and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome to warn an estimated 20 million people who carry the retrovirus she discovered. As she described at her website:

“These viruses were most likely introduced into humans through contaminated vaccines and biological products including GMOs, human blood products, the milk of cows, and human breast milk. These retroviruses can be passed between family members through body fluids. It is not unusual to find a family where everyone tests positive for a retrovirus, but only one person is experiencing a retrovirus-related illness. Symptom free carriers are common in human retroviral infections.”

If there was ever a story that underscored the extent that medical science is organized to produce pharmaceutical profits and prevent pharmaceutical liabilities, it is this one. Allowing corporations to reengineer our food and drug supply with the human race as guinea pigs is not a good idea.

Mikovits assumes CFS and autism result from unintended consequences. I do not. I have known many very intelligent, well-educated women with CFS. They were just the kind of caring, capable women and mothers would would be doing something about the many things going wrong in our society. I find it an extraordinary coincidence that their leadership potential was thus sidelined.

If you or someone in your family are struggling with CFS or autism, I recommend you read this book. Knowledge is power – real science may help.

Fake science will not.
