“Kent Heckenlively and Judy Mikovits are the new dynamic duo fighting corruption in science.” —Ben Garrison, America’s #1 political satirist
Dr. Judy Mikovits is a modern-day Rosalind Franklin, a brilliant researcher shaking up the old boys’ club of science with her groundbreaking discoveries. And like many women who have trespassed into the world of men, she uncovered decades-old secrets that many would prefer to stay buried.
From her doctoral thesis, which changed the treatment of HIV-AIDS, saving the lives of millions, including basketball great Magic Johnson, to her spectacular discovery of a new family of human retroviruses, and her latest research which points to a new golden age of health, Dr. Mikovits has always been on the leading edge of science.
With the brilliant wit one might expect if Erin Brockovich had a doctorate in molecular biology, Dr. Mikovits has seen the best and worst of science. When she was part of the research community that turned HIV-AIDS from a fatal disease into a manageable one, she saw science at its best. But when her investigations questioned whether the use of animal tissue in medical research were unleashing devastating plagues of chronic diseases, such as autism and chronic fatigue syndrome, she saw science at its worst. If her suspicions are correct, we are looking at a complete realignment of scientific practices, including how we study and treat human disease.
Recounting her nearly four decades in science, including her collaboration of more than thirty-five years with Dr. Frank Ruscetti, one of the founders of the field of human retrovirology, this is a behind the scenes look at the issues and egos which will determine the future health of humanity.
This book WILL make you think…
Wow. I hope this book will give a new perspective in terms of research, government regulation, and health, whether you agree w Judie or disagree after reading, a new perspective is all.
This is my second time reading this, and I can grasp a little more this time around. The first time I read it, I gave it a 5, but this time it is a 4.
The science in this book is fascinating, but if you’re not in the science field, there may be a hands full of areas that might be confusing for you. But overall, she explains what she’s talking about fairly well
The timeline is super choppy. You have to remember names very well and what scientist did what. HOWEVER, her jumping around so much, helps tell her story of why there’s corruption within the scientific field.
But, overall, 4 stars bc I do think it’s an important read for anyone who’s curious about health, disease research, and government regulations ESPECIALLY with Covid-19 now.
This woman knows the truth!
If you want to know what scum dr Anthony faucci is, read this book! Best. Dylan
A sobering read on how corrupted the FDA, CDC, WHO, and Pharmacological companies truly are.
