Judy Mikovits, PhD, spent twenty years at the National
Cancer Institute, working with Dr. Frank Ruscetti, one of the
founding fathers of human retrovirology, and has coauthored more
than forty scientific papers. She co-founded and directed the first
neuroimmune disease institute using a systems biology approach in
2006. Dr. Mikovits lives in Southern California with her husband,
Kent Heckenlively, JD, is a former attorney, a founding editor of Age of Autism, and a science teacher. During college Heckenlively worked for US Senator Pete Wilson, and in law school he was a writer and an editor of the school's law review and spent his summers working for the US Attorney's Office in San Francisco. Kent and his wife Linda live in Northern California with their two children, Jacqueline and Ben.
"One of the main problems of our time is the public loss of
confidence in the scientific community because of a too often
corrupt coalition of governmental and corporate entities. Judy
Mikovits's and Kent Heckenlively's book delves into the midst of
this rampant corruption, which hides from the public scientific
truths which might go against these corporate economic
-Dr. Luc Montagnier, 2008 Nobel Laureate for the isolation of the HIV retrovirus
"Kent Heckenlively and Judy Mikovits are the new dynamic duo fighting corruption in science."
- Ben Garrison, America's #1 political satirist
"What this book teaches you more than anything else is that science is a dangerous game. The notion that science is precise and unambiguous is wrong. When there is doubt, there is the potential for powerful interested parties to make life miserable for a scientist with integrity. Throughout the book, intrigue is seamlessly intertwined with fascinating revelations about the still poorly understood science behind the potential role of retroviruses in mysterious debilitating diseases like chronic fatigue syndrome and autism."
-Dr. Stephanie Seneff, Senior Research Scientist, MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory
"The breathtaking story of an extraordinary scientist who discovered the most likely cause of chronic fatigue syndrome, only to witness a cover-up and character assassination emanating from the highest levels of the scientific community. An incisive critique of what's wrong with science today, and yet a hopeful portrait of how science still has the means to find the truth. It leaves you overwhelmed by the insidious methods and players corrupting science, but hopeful for truth-seekers in the scientific community like Dr. Mikovits who are persevering against all odds."
- J.B. Handley, co-founder of Generation Rescue and author of How to End the Autism Epidemic
"This book is a jaw-dropping excursion through the lies of Big Money, Big Government and Big Pharma. God bless Dr. Mikovits for her courage in sharing this story!"
- Max Swafford, author and educator
"Anthony Fauci, Bill Gates and Big Pharma don't want you to read this book. Get PLAGUE OF CORRUPTION now and learn the truth about public health industrial complex's decades of research fraud and vaccine cover-ups."
- Michelle Malkin, New York Times bestselling author and political commentator
PLAGUE OF CORRUPTION is a once-in-a-generation eye-opener that is likely to have a profound impact on how Americans view their country's public health and scientific establishment.
