Features of Plague One Scientists Intrepid Search for the Truth PDF
“This book is my best attempt to tell the truth about my research, the culture in science today which is hostile to new ideas, and what science can really do if allowed to pursue promising areas of inquiries.”—Dr. Judy Mikovits, PhD Plague One Scientists Intrepid Search for the Truth PDF
This is a story for anybody interested in the peril and promise of science at the very highest levels in our country. 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!” The resulting investigation would be like no other in science.
For Dr. Mikovits, a twenty-year veteran of the National Cancer Institute, this was the midpoint of a five-year journey that would start with the founding of the Whittemore-Peterson Institute for Neuro-Immune Disease at the University of Nevada, Reno, and end with her as a witness for the federal government against her former employer, Harvey Whittemore, for illegal campaign contributions to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.
On this journey Dr. Mikovits would face the scientific prejudices against CFS, wander into the minefield that is autism, and through it all struggle to maintain her faith in God and the profession to which she had dedicated her life.

Unfortunately in her own naive unsuspecting way, as she let the world know what she had found she made two mistakes. You might say that greed was at the heart of both – not from Mikovits, but from her employers and from the rest of the scientific community, some of whom initially supported her, but later strangely turned against her, by using obviously faulty criteria in tests trying to duplicate her results.
Mistake 1 was telling her employers that the test they had developed to sell that would detect the presence of this retrovirus in humans was faulty. Mistake 2 was that in discussing her research at various conferences around the world she used two words in the same paragraph that could effect billions of dollars in profit from pharmaceutical companies: autism and vaccines. Even though she didn’t state there was a definite connection, just to suggest there might be cause for further research in the area is enough to ruffle some very powerful feathers. In fact, since I have used these same two words in the same sentence just to describe what happened in this book, I would not all be surprised to see this review deleted by .
It’s really a shame this book wasn’t more readable. I finished it, but it was a chore. Its a revealing story about scientific research, both how it gets done and how it gets undone. It needs to be more widely understood.
