Vaccines and Retroviruses: A Whistleblower Reveals What the Government is Hiding

Data suggests that 6% of the U.S. population is harboring a retrovirus in their bodies that can develop into an acquired immune deficiency. This is not the well-known AIDS caused by HIV, but Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) associated with other retroviruses. These non-HIV retroviruses were unintentionally introduced into humans over the past 75 years.

It began with trials of polio vaccines and yellow fever vaccines given in the early 1930s. This is when the first recorded cases of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and autism appeared. It involved the use of laboratory mice to prepare vaccines for human use. [1]

20 Million Americans Likely Infected with Retroviruses

Retrovirus exposure intensified in the 1970s as new vaccines and pharmaceutical products were developed. These retroviruses and related infectious agents are now associated with dozens of modern chronic illnesses – perhaps nearly all of them. In these diseases, infection leads to inflammation — and unresolved inflammation can lead to chronic disease.

The list of diseases stretches from autism to cancer and from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome to Alzheimer’s. The diseases cripple the development of the young, steal the productivity and enjoyment of life for adults, and provide a slow and withering death to the elderly.

“An inefficient virus kills its host. A clever virus stays with it.” James Lovelock

The retroviruses being discussed are very clever and very stealthy. They can infect a person and stay with them for their entire lifetime. Sometimes they shorten life substantially. But, they are just as likely to bring a person to total disability and deny people the opportunity for a normal life.

Even though 20 million Americans are likely to be infected, not everyone will develop serious illness. Retroviruses in the human body are like sleeping giants. They are quiet until they are activated in immune deficient people.

Once activated, they create diseases such as Myalgic Encephalomyelitis, also called Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS), Chronic Lyme’s Disease, Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia, autism spectrum disorder (ASD), numerous cancers, and a wide range of other autoimmune, neuroimmune, and central nervous system diseases. Please see reference number 2 at the end of this article for a comprehensive list of diseases. [2]

Retroviruses can Promote A Perfect Storm of Illness

The retroviruses being discussed here do not directly cause diseases by themselves. A perfect storm of events need to come together to create acquired immune system deficiency (non-HIV AIDS). When conditions are right, the viruses create unrelenting inflammatory processes that disrupt the immune system.

The perfect storm occurs when human DNA is disturbed by retroviruses, when there are co-infections, when there is severe shock or trauma, when hormones are dysregulated, when there are genetically modified organisms and glyphosate in the diet, when there are pesticides and other toxic substances in food and the environment, and when there are genetic susceptibilities.

If some or all of these conditions occur together, then the immune system will be weakened to the point where the perfect storm occurs, and people become ill with some type of modern chronic disease.

Not everyone who has retroviruses in their bodies will develop one of these diseases, but for those who experience a perfect storm the possibility is much greater. The risks increase with age as the immune system naturally weakens.

How Did These Viruses Infect Millions Worldwide?

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.

You Probably Haven’t Heard Much about the Retrovirus Problem

If you have never heard about the retrovirus problem, then you can thank the CDC, NIH, FDA, and other government agencies for covering up the problem since it was first reported to them in 1991 by American immunologist Elaine DeFreitas. [3]

They did not want to alarm you. They didn’t want to induce a panic, or a rebellion against the use of vaccines. They didn’t want to send shock waves through the conventional medical care system and the pharmaceutical industry that would threaten their profits. They didn’t want to risk a public panic among people needing blood transfusions. They didn’t want to disturb the resolve of Big Pharma and political leaders working to pass mandatory vaccination laws. They didn’t want to interfere with the full implementation of genetically engineered crops. They didn’t want to lay the groundwork for numerous class action lawsuits from people who were harmed or who will be harmed in the next 20 to 30 years as the retroviruses continue to multiply in the bodies of infected persons.

Ultimately, government leaders didn’t want us to be able to make informed decisions regarding the true risks associated with certain therapies – they preferred to keep us all in the dark. They just wanted to cover up the whole mess and act as if it never happened – but it did happen, and millions of Americans are now suffering from a plague of modern diseases that were once rare or non-existent.

My Sources for this Information

The information that I am sharing in this article came mostly from an interview I did with Judy A. Mikovits, Ph.D. and from the book, Plague: One Scientist’s Intrepid Search for the Truth about Human Retroviruses and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS), Autism, and Other Diseases, written by Kent Heckenlively, JD, and Dr. Mikovits.

My article will explain the history of retrovirus contamination and the government cover-up. It will provide an introduction to effective treatments for those who suffer with the illnesses mentioned above. It attempts to do what our government didn’t have the political courage to do.

Retroviruses Escaped Safeguards Designed to Contain Them

Before I go any further, I need to tell you that safeguards most likely were implemented in December of 2014 to clean up retrovirus contaminated blood products and vaccines. The FDA approved technologies developed by the Cerus Corporation on that date that were specifically designed to solve these problems.

The problem was well understood by public health scientists and researchers for five years, but the problem was not made public until the FDA approved a solution. The press release from the Cerus Corporation describes some of the problems with the blood supply, and tells us about their new technologies. [4] Dr. Mikovits proved that this new technology is effective for inactivating these viruses in blood products, even though as you will soon read, she was viciously persecuted for bringing this problem to light.

PRESS RELEASE DETAILS: FDA APPROVES INTERCEPT BLOOD SYSTEM FOR PLASMA

This is good news for people who are choosing to take vaccines and for those who need to receive blood products. However, we must not forget the large number of people who were unknowingly infected by retroviruses over the past 20 or 30 years. The Cerus technology will not help them.

How did the Retrovirus Nightmare Begin?

The most recent chapter of the story began in the 1970s. It took place in research laboratories throughout the world where scientists were doing research on diseases such as cancer and HIV/AIDS.

These were the same laboratories where they were manufacturing vaccines. These labs work with mice that are genetically engineered to have immune system deficiencies, which made them vulnerable to express certain diseases. In other words, their immune systems have been altered in such a way that they will get a certain disease when exposed to a certain pathogen or toxin.

Research activities involved injecting lab mice with human viruses to attenuate or weaken the viruses. Scientists routinely did these experiments with mice in the same laboratories where they were growing human cell lines. They believed that mouse viruses and human viruses would not interact, or travel from one part of the research facility to another.

In the past, scientists didn’t worry about mouse virus contamination, because they believed that these viruses would not harm humans if they actually made their way into a human being. Scientists acknowledged the risks, but maintained the judgment that the benefits of vaccines outweighed the risks. The work of Dr. Mikovits and other scientists challenged their beliefs. They suggested the problem with mouse viruses was already out of control and the cost of the damage could destroy the economies of nations.

Other Doctors Who Warned about Retroviruses

Dr. G. Stuart made the same warning in 1953, when he spoke to the World Health Organization. He was talking about the yellow fever vaccine at that time. He stated:

Two main objections to this vaccine have been voiced, because of the possibility that (i) the mouse brain employed in its preparation may be contaminated with a virus pathogenic for man although latent in mice … Or may be the cause of a de-myelinating encephalomyelitis; (ii) the use, as an antigen, or a virus with enhanced neurotropic properties may be followed by serious reactions involving the central nervous system. [5]

In 1996, Dr. John Coffin, a leading expert on recombination in viruses, warned against transplanting cells from animals into humans to improve the functioning of the immune system of HIV-AIDS patients. He stated:

The infection is a virtually inevitable consequence of xenotransplantation and this is a very serious worry because the animals that have been chosen for doing this — the baboon and the pig — are both known to carry endogenous viruses, replication competent, but very poorly studied, that are capable of infecting human cells. [6]

As Government Denies Existence of Retroviruses, Big Pharma Prepares to Make Huge Profits from Treatment

Many test tube with blood for analysis

After a 4-year gag order against Dr. Judy Mikovits was recently lifted, Health Impact News interviewed this whistleblower regarding her research that shows 6% of the U.S. population is harboring a retrovirus in their bodies that can develop into an acquired immune deficiency. See:

Vaccines and Retroviruses: A Whistleblower Reveals What the Government is Hiding

Judy A. Mikovits, PhD, earned her BA from University of Virginia and PhD in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology from George Washington University. 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. 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.

But it was Dr. Mikovits’ research showing the relationship of the XMRV mouse retrovirus to Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, and then Autism, and other diseases, that brought about much trouble for her. The data showed that 6% of the U.S. population is harboring a retrovirus in their bodies.

Dr. Mikovits spoke the truth about the fraudulent use of government research money, the marketing of inaccurate retrovirus tests, Medicare fraud, the contaminated blood supply, and the harm that is associated with vaccines and their schedule of administration. Her research showed how retroviruses are linked to the plague of modern illnesses that are bankrupting the U.S. healthcare system. She was arrested without a warrant and held in jail for 5 days without the opportunity for bail as a fugitive from justice. Her career was destroyed.

Her story is documented in the book Plague: ​One Scientist’s intrepid Search For the Truth about Human Retroviruses and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Autism, and Other Diseases.

Her co-author, Kent Heckenlively, brings us this article below showing how the FDA has approved a testing protocol to detect retroviruses in the U.S. blood supply which is worth millions of dollars, and based in large part on Dr. Mikovits’ research. So while this distinguished scientist is now bankrupt and without employment, others are allegedly capitalizing on her research to earn millions of dollars to clean up the U.S. blood supply.

PLAGUE – The Retrovirus-Gate Lies

As an attorney I learned (often the hard way), that if you wanted to know the truth about a person, you didn’t just listen to their words, but you investigated their actions. If a client said he wasn’t a gambler, you should probably check out how many trips he’s made to Las Vegas in the past year. We all understand that, right?

So, why is it that with the XMRV retrovirus (more accurately referred to as the xenotropic murine leukemia virus-related virus, basically a mouse retrovirus that crossed-over into humans) that Dr. Mikovits and I wrote about in our book, PLAGUE: One Scientist’s Intrepid Search for the Truth About Human Retroviruses, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS), Autism, and Other Diseases, officially declared by Dr. Ian Lipkin of Columbia University and the medical research community not to be a threat, are people spending a lot of money to protect against something just like XMRV?

One of the most important questions Dr. Mikovits investigated was whether the XMRV retrovirus posed a threat to the blood supply, just as the HIV retrovirus posed a threat to the blood supply decades earlier. The investigation was troubled from the start and Dr. Mikovits was aware of immense pressure that the scientists reach the conclusion that no threat existed.

Shortly after the publication of her article in the journal Science in October of 2009, showing an association between the XMRV retrovirus and chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS), Dr. Mikovits was contacted by representatives from the Cerus Corporation.  They had developed the Cerus Intercept System, which involved inserting a molecule into the donated blood material.

This molecule then attaches to the DNA or RNA of any potential pathogen, and then when exposed to ultraviolet light the molecule binds to the pathogen and prevents it from replicating.  (“The INTERCEPT Blood System Rids Blood Donations of All Pathogens,” Scientific American, June 16, 2015)

Dr. Mikovits worked on two studies with Cerus, including one that showed the Oakland blood supply was contaminated with XMRVs.  Dr. Mikovits even spiked blood with XMRV, subjected it to the Cerus INTERCEPT system and found the system had reduced the XMRV in the blood below detectable.

Dr. Mikovits was impressed with the results of these tests, especially as she believed XMRVs posed a significant threat to the blood supply. She publicly shared this assessment during her talk at the New York Academy of Sciences on March 29, 2011, when she appeared right after Dr. Lipkin.

Well, those who have followed this issue know that the work of Dr. Mikovits was subjected to a vicious campaign of intimidation and outright deception, all because she asserted a few simple truths.  XMRV or something closely resembling it appeared to be present in anywhere from 3-8% of the healthy population.

Retroviruses hide out in the immune system, which means any immune activation, like an injury, surgery, fever, and yes, even a vaccination, could set off the ticking time-bomb of a retrovirus and cause diseases like chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS) among adults, autism among children and the blood disease Idiopathic Thrombocytopenia as Dr. Mikovits and her team had also reported in June 2011.

It became necessary to destroy Dr. Mikovits and XMRV, but strangely enough, that Cerus INTERCEPT System suffered a markedly different fate. The Cerus corporation has had an extremely good run of success in the past year because of its INTERCEPT system. According to their press release of August 6, 2015, the Concord, California based company, in the second quarter of 2015 they, “signed INTERCEPT platelet and plasma supply agreements with Unyts and Bonfils Blood Center; Suncoast Blood Bank produced the first INTERCEPT pathogen reduced platelet components distributed in the continental United States; and appointed Dr. Richard J. Benjamin (former chief medical officer of the American Red Cross) as the new Cerus chief medical officer.”

And how did all of this wonderful success affect the bottom line of Cerus?  Well, let me quote from their own press release.  “At June 30, 2015, the Company had cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments of $122.9 million compared to $51.3 million at December 31, 2014.”  That’s a gain of $71.6 million dollars in six months.

Are you getting the picture?  Dr. Mikovits and XMRV needed to be destroyed, and as a result Dr. Mikovits was driven into bankruptcy.  I assure you she does not have $122.9 million on hand in “cash, cash equivalents, or short term investments.”

As she seeks to redeem her name by legal actions, she often worries about running out of money by the end of the month.  And yet, at the same time, it seems people are falling all over themselves to buy the Cerus INTERCEPT system that would get rid of XMRVs in the blood supply, which according to the official story don’t exist in the human population.

This demand is so high it adds $71.6 million to the bank account of Cerus, even after doing all those things like paying for rent, equipment, supplies, and the salaries of people who used to be the chief medical officer for the American Red Cross.  Dr. Mikovits had a collaborative agreement with Cerus, contributed intellectual property to the use of the system, and yet does not share in any of the financial success of this venture.

Am I being too cynical, or am I simply presenting the facts?

And then there’s the recent publication on August 29, 2015 of an article in the journal Biologicals, entitled “Removal of Xenotropic Murine Leukemia Virus by Nanocellulose Based Filter Paper” which looks at a method for removing mouse leukemia viruses from biological products.  As they reported in the abstract, “The results of this validation study suggest that nanocellulose filter paper is useful for removal of endogenous rodent retroviruses and retrovirus-like particles during the production of recombinant proteins.”

Can somebody please tell me what is going on here?  In one of the most dramatic moments of her investigation, Dr. Mikovits was shouted down by fellow scientists at a conference in Leuven, Belgium in the summer of 2011 that her team should stop “wasting money” on this research.  Why is Cerus fattening its bank account on the threat of unknown pathogens lurking in the blood supply when the official line is that no such threat exists?  Why are scientists “wasting money” figuring out how to get mouse retroviruses out of biological products if they couldn’t possibly cause harm?

And if that’s not enough, here are two more little gems for you to consider. In her investigation of retroviruses, Dr. Mikovits had no more misguided opponent than Dr. John Coffin.  And yet, here are Dr. Coffin’s own words from the NIH State of the Knowledge Workshop on ME/CFS from April, 2011:

“That doesn’t mean there isn’t another gammaretrovirus to be found.  I think enough evidence has been presented that maybe another infectious retrovirus is there.  These studies will continue to go on, looking for MLV-related viruses.”

Researchers from the University of California at Berkeley have recently reported in PLOS ONE, a link between the bovine leukemia virus and breast cancer, finding it in 59% of breast cancer tissue samples, and in only 29% of tissue samples from women who never had breast cancer.  A press release from UC Berkeley noted:

“Bovine leukemia virus infects dairy and beef cattle’s blood cells and mammary tissue.  The retrovirus is easily transmitted among cattle primarily through infected blood and milk, but it only causes disease in fewer than 5 percent of infected animals.” (“Virus in Cattle Linked to Human Breast Cancer,” Sarah Yang, UC Berkeley News, September 15, 2015)

For those who may find this interesting, but have other concerns, such as the threat of recombinant technology in foods, animal growth hormones, environmental toxins like aluminum, mercury, and arsenic, or worries about GMOs, these may all be linked together.  Something is causing these previously suppressed animal retroviruses to emerge and driving the evolution of new strains.  Acknowledging the reality of these retroviruses jumping into humans is not the final step, but the first step in unraveling what is going wrong with the health of our population. To repeatedly deny their existence in humans by destroying the careers of those whose strongly say otherwise, and then quietly profiting with technologies to clean up the contaminated blood supply, biological drugs and vaccines which are still being forced upon our children, is pure evil.

People say there’s a lot of rage in this country, and that it’s because those in charge are gaming the system for their own benefit.  Telling the truth is a revolutionary act.  I hope the time for revolution has come, and those like Dr. Mikovits, who have been maligned as the creators of panic, will be seen as correct in their identification of a threat which has already harmed millions of people.

Americans Head to Atlanta to Protest Against CDC Corruption

by Barbara Loe Fisher

1986 march in Atlanta (CDC)

In the spring of 1986, NVIC co-founder Kathi Williams and I gathered with a small group of parents in Atlanta, Georgia to hold the first public demonstration demanding that the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) be truthful with the American public about vaccine injuries and deaths. We held up signs with photos of children who had died or been brain injured by toxic whole cell DPT vaccine to witness and honor them, the children who had no voice and had no choice.

Pharma-Led Forced Vaccination Lobby Attacks Human & Civil Rights

Almost 30 years later, on Saturday, October 24, 2015 at 1 p.m., Kathi and I will again gather with parents in Atlanta, this time for the Truth, Transparency & Freedom Rally in Grant Park. The rally is being organized and sponsored by the parent-led Vaccine Injury Awareness League (VIAL), a small California non-profit founded this year after the Pharma-led forced vaccination lobby descended upon that state’s legislature and attacked the human right to informed consent to medical risk taking so they could eliminate the personal belief vaccine exemption and the civil right to a school education.

NVIC Stands in Solidarity with Parents

Dave McCutcheon and parents marching in Atlanta 1986

The National Vaccine Information Center stands in solidarity with parents who are gathering in Atlanta and witnessing about what happened to their once healthy children, and are again calling on the CDC to tell the public the truth about vaccine injuries and deaths.

We stand with in solidarity with all who want to protect the right to know and the freedom to choose how to stay healthy in America.

We stand in solidarity with all who reject the politics of demonization, discrimination and segregation that pit parent against parent, citizen against citizen, and violate basic human and civil rights.

We will not allow another generation of children to lose their health because government continues to protect the liability free vaccine industry and covers up vaccine risks and failures, while our children are crippled in the chronic disease and disability epidemic sweeping through America’s schools.

YES to Democracy, NO to Corporatocracy

Many people coming to the rally in Atlanta are united in defending freedom of speech and conscience. They believe it is time to speak out about the business partnership between industry and government that is turning our democracy into a corporatocracy and threatening the health of our nation.

Defend Inalienable Natural Rights and Health Liberty!

On Saturday, October 24, be in Atlanta and defend the inalienable natural rights embodied in the U.S. Constitution, which unite all of us regardless of where we live, the color of our skin, the faith that sustains us or the philosophies that define us. Bring your friends, your spirit, your love and your commitment and stand in solidarity with others who are there for the same reason.

Go to CDCtruth.org to learn more.

It’s your health. Your family. Your choice.
