    Mikovits enters Lyme Disease quackery

    [Copied from Lyme disease Network of New Jersey, Inc.]

    Dr. Judy Mikovits – Speaker at So OC lyme Group
    Dr. Judy Mikovits PH.d will be speaking at our support group this Sat at 1pm-3pm.
    So OC LYME, CFS, FIBRO
    Support Meeting – Sat. April 7
    ‘Dr. Judy Mikovits Ph.D.’
    Also an ILADS physician.
    1 pm to 3 pm
    El Toro Library Conference Room
    24672 Raymond Way – Lake Forest, CA 92630

    Dr. Mikovits is World-renowned for her extensive research with viruses involved with CFS, Fibromyalgia and Lyme Disease.

    Dr. Mikovits spent more than 20 years at the National Cancer Institute in Frederick MD during which time she received her PhD in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, investigating mechanisms by which retroviruses dysregulate the delicate balance of cytokines in the immune response. Later in her career at the NCI, Dr. Mikovits directed the Lab of Antiviral Drug Mechanisms (LADM) a section of the NCI’s Screening Technologies Branch in the Developmental Therapeutics Program.

    Formally trained as a cell biologist, molecular biologist and virologist, Dr. Mikovits has studied the immune response to retroviruses and herpes viruses including HIV, SIV, HTLVI, HERV, HHV6 and HHV8 with a special emphasis on virus host cell interactions in cells of the hematopoietic system including hematopoietic stem cells (HSC). Dr. Mikovits has co-authored more than 40 peer-reviewed publications that address fundamental issues of viral pathogenesis, hematopoiesis and cytokine biology.

    Dr. Judy Mikovitz will be discussing about a new Bio-Energetic Test called Pharmenex BioPhotonic. This test can inform each patient what their levels of anti-oxidants are and their levels of Oxidative Stress, what they are deficient in and what to supplement with to return levels to normal ranges. This is cutting edge technology.

    We are privileged to hear her speak and she will have this new technology with her. A nationally known LLMD, will be speaking on inflammation and ways to control the cytokine storms of these illnesses.
    (…)
    She is bringing the new FDA APPROVED scanner for measurements of anti oxidants…she is bring this with her to scan some people to show how it works…
    http://nspharmanex.com/2011/05/pharmanex-biophotonic-scanner-highlighted-on-the-dr-oz-show/

    This is the same one that was on Dr. OZ show. What is the difference for i.e. a Zyto dr speak on Zyto or an PEMF dr talk about that scanner? Or a rife company speaking on rife machines? Are they not allowed to do that too? Of course NOT..No one needs to buy anything so I really do not know what you are referring too…

    Also, Dr. Ian Lipkin Director of Immunology and Epidemlogy at Columbia University is still including her on the team at NIH and Cancer Research Dept for research study involving retroviruses. If there was such a bad controversy then the NIH and Dr. Lipkin would not still be including her…

    This is a free event …all are welcome !!!!

    Apparently ERV the mecfsforums want to sue for libel on the podcast you made so says idiot Robyn
    And I hope she knows what the word libel means, she might want to look it up on wikipedia:

    The word Robyn is looking for is ‘slander’, and no, its not. They just desperately want people to stop being mean to St. Judy (read: talking about her misconduct).

    And yes, that forum has fostered the worst of the worst nutters during this fiasco. I am very frustrating for them because they dont understand why threats/harassment dont work on me.

    Looks like they mean the same thing.Best stay in to school!:
    Slander and libel are false or malicious claims that may harm someone’s reputation.
