Man, I know I'm going to get chewed on for this but here goes, A- Dr. Mikovits is nobody she is not the first name on the Lombardi et al paper She is the last. She is a research director for a small start up lab. She has only 26 papers to her name. B- she has spoken out against people who consider themselves her superiors due to papers published, work in specific areas and all the other folderal that greases the egos. C- She did not discover this virus. She is not a major player in figuring out it's pathogenisis. D-Dr. Mikovits has two things going for her, she was in the right place at the right time and she knew the right people. You try to ram her down the throats of major players and you may cost her her career. Right now people (scientist) are jockeying for credit and glory in the next BIG discovery they will fight back if they see a threat to their place. I love that Judy has stood up and spoken for the patients. She has been a wonderful patient advocate and I want to see her able to continue that role. Now I do plan to write the major news out let's and emphasize how the CDC has just disqualified 30 years of science by targeting every test currently used to diagnose CFS in one web page update!
