McCovets also accuses Anthony Fauci, director of the US National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) and a senior member of the White House Coronavirus Task Force, of responsibility for the deaths of millions during the first few period. Years of the HIV / AIDS Epidemic. . The video claims that Mikovitz was part of the team that discovered HIV, revolutionized HIV treatment, and was imprisoned without charge on scientific charges.
Check the flag from the video. None of these statements are true. The video is an excerpt from an upcoming movie, Plandemic, which promises to “expose the scientific and political elite running the fraud that is our global health system.” YouTube, Facebook and other platforms removed the video due to inaccuracies. It continues to reappear, including on the Plandemic website, which is inviting people, in an “attempt to circumvent the guards of free speech”, to download and repost the video.
But first, who is Judy Mikovitz?
Mikovitz began her career as a laboratory technician at the National Cancer Institute (NCI) in 1988. She became a scientist and received her Ph.D. She earned her Ph.D. in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology from George Washington University in 1991. In 2009, she was the director of research at the Whitemore Peterson Institute (WPI), a private research center in Reno, Nevada, but remained largely unknown to the scientific community. That year, she co-authored a research paper in the journal Science that suggested that an unknown agent called Xenotropic virus associated with rat leukemia virus (XMRV) caused chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS).
The cause of chronic fatigue syndrome, also called encephalomyelitis, was long elusive and disease science neglected. The study raised hope that chronic fatigue syndrome can be treated with antiviral drugs. Some patients have even started taking the anti-retroviral drugs that people with HIV are using. But the document also raised concerns that XMRV could be spread through the blood supply.
Other researchers soon questioned the findings, and over the next two years, the article’s allegations collapsed. The researchers showed that XMRV was accidentally created in the laboratory during experiments with mice. A human may have never been infected. The authors first removed two numbers and a table from the article in October 2011. Around the same time, a study by several laboratories, including the WPI itself, showed that the results could not be duplicated.
After two months, the article was withdrawn completely. Mikovitz refused to sign a notice of retreat, but was involved in other large copying efforts. That $ 2.3 million study, led by Ian Lipkin of Columbia University and funded by the National Institutes of Health, was the “final answer,” Mikovitz told a news conference in September 2012 where the results were announced. Results. The rigorous study looked for XMRV in blind blood samples of nearly 300 people, half of whom had the disease and none of them had the virus. Mikovitz admitted that “there is no evidence that XMRV is a human pathogen.”
The Science News section, operating independently of its editorial side, followed the story closely and published a detailed reconstruction of the fiasco in September 2011 (the story won a Communication Award from the American Society of Microbiology).
Around the same time, Mikovits had a major break with WPI. The institute filed a lawsuit against him in November 2011 for allegedly removing lab notebooks and keeping other proprietary information on his laptop, flash drives, and a personal email account. She was arrested in California for criminal offenses she was a fugitive from justice and imprisoned for several days. The prosecutors of Washoe County, Nevada, finally dropped the criminal charges against him in June 2012.
Mikovitz had not published anything in the scientific literature since 2012. But she soon began promoting the XMRV hypothesis again and attacking Lipkin’s study, which she said had concluded the topic. He influenced the autism debate with controversial theories about causes and treatments. Her disgraceful work and legal temptation made her a martyr in the eyes of some.
Now comes a new book I co-authored, “The Plague of Corruption: Restoring Faith in the Promise of Science,” which has been described as “a behind-the-scenes look at the issues and vanities that will define humanity’s future health” and a fast-paced video, a lengthy interview with Mikovits.
Seek knowledge from Mikovitz interviewed for this article. She responded by sending a blank email containing, as attachments, a copy of her new book and a PowerPoint from her 2019 presentation entitled “Persecution and Incognito.”
Here are some of the most important claims and claims from the video, along with the facts.
Announcer: Dr. Judy Mickowitz has been called one of the most skilled scientists of her generation.
Mikovitz wrote 40 scientific papers and was not well known in the scientific community prior to the publication of the 2009 science article that claimed a link between a novel retrovirus and chronic fatigue syndrome. The article was later found to be false and it has been retracted.
Corresponding to: The 1991 doctoral thesis revolutionized HIV / AIDS treatment.
PhD. Mikovitz’s thesis, “Negative regulation of HIV expression in monocytes,” had no discernible effect on HIV / AIDS treatment.
Announcer: At the height of her career, Dr. Mikovitz very successful article in the journal Science. The controversial article sent waves of shock to the scientific community as it revealed that the common use of animal and human embryo tissue was unleashing devastating epidemics of chronic disease.
The newspaper did not reveal anything of the kind. It only claimed to have shown a link between a condition, chronic fatigue syndrome, and retrovirus.
Mikovitz: I was in prison without charges.
A Washoe County, Nevada attorney filed a criminal complaint against Mickovets for illegally taking computer data and related property from the WPI. The charges were dropped in part due to legal troubles the former employer faced.
Mickowitz: The heads of our HHS [Department of Health and Human Services] have colluded and destroyed my reputation, and the Department of Justice and [the FBI] sat on it and kept this case secret.
Mikovitz has not provided direct evidence of HHS chiefs’ collusion against her.
