About This Episode
Meet Dr. Judy Mikovits, a passionate research molecular biologist and biochemist; wrongfully jailed with her career destroyed forever because she dared to publish findings unacceptable to vested interests.
Back story: 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, 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. This is a story for anybody interested in the peril, promise, and corruption of science at the very highest levels.
In this week’s interview of GFM Media, we will discuss, among other things, how prominent journals like Nature, Cell, and Science are damaging science. Case in point: the day before receiving the 2013 Nobel Prize in Medicine, Dr. Randy Schekman published a piece in The Guardian newspaper in which he declared his intention to never submit another piece of research to the journals, Science, Cell, Nature, and others like them because they are not serving the best interests of humanity and society.
Judy A. Mikovits has spent her life training to be a research scientist to honor her grandfather who died of cancer when she was a teenager. Dr. Mikovits earned her BA from University of Virginia and PhD in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology from George Washington University. In her 35-year quest to understand and treat chronic diseases, she has studied immunology, natural products chemistry, epigenetics, virology and drug development. In just over twenty years she rose from an entry-level lab technician to become director of the lab of Antiviral Drug Mechanisms at the National Cancer Institute before leaving to direct the Cancer Biology program at EpiGenX Pharmaceuticals in Santa Barbara California.
Judy Mikovits’ revelations around tainted vaccines and contaminated blood have caused shockwaves that resulted in the censoring and suppression of her work, and smearing of her character. Tonight, we look to discover why.
Having spent the last four years defending herself against bogus charges, whilst enduring four years of forced silence due to a court-ordered gag order, Judy’s life and career have changed forever, yet she continues to speak the truth. Join us, 9 pm Sydney time on Global Freedom Movement Media, as Dr. Judy Mikovits sets the story straight.
- First hour delves deep into the science behind Judy’s discovery.
- Second half delves into the corruption of the industry, vaccines, and the lengths the medico-industrial complex will go to in order to silence the truth.

About the Authors
Kent Heckenlively – Kent Heckenlively is a science teacher, an attorney, and a founding editor of Age of Autism. In the summer of 2010 and 2011, Heckenlively attended the Teacher Research Academy at Lawrence-Livermore National Laboratories, spending eight weeks in a virus lab investigating the expression of micro-RNAs in a monkey model of Ebola infection. Kent is also a member of the Compass group, a consortium of autism parents, leading scientists, and philanthropists in Silicon Valley looking for answers to neuro-immune diseases.

In just over twenty years she rose from an entry-level lab technician to become director of the lab of Antiviral Drug Mechanisms at the National Cancer Institute before leaving to direct the Cancer Biology program at EpiGenX Pharmaceuticals in Santa Barbara, California where she had met and married David Nolde in 2000.
There in 2006, she became attracted to the plight of patients with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Autism. In only five years she developed the first neuroimmune institute from a concept to a reality and is primarily responsible for demonstrating the relationship between immune based inflammation and these diseases. She has published over 50 scientific papers.
