Latest Paper links 85% of ME/CFS patients with a form of Retrovirus !!
This is "one" of the days we've been waiting for... and it did NOT disappoint.
Here is a pdf copy of the Alter/Lo paper if you want to read the whole thing..
As of this moment's count over 104+ articles have been written per Google by various new agencies/papers about this research Paper on the latest RETROVIRUS Family that is infecting HUMANS...a good number of them unfortunately tho seem to MISS the Major POINT Here.. that THIS is a Retrovirus... NOT just your average "I've got a cold" Rhinovirus..
Maybe they forgot HIV that caused AIDS is a RETROVIRUS ??
The NEXT Question is WHEN are they going to take it SERIOUSLY with regard to the "Public Blood Supply" and DEMAND that the blood supply be screened for this Family of Retroviruses so that every person about to "donate/receive" blood or receive a transfusion does NOT have to worry about passing on the Horrible Diseases that those of us for the last 24 years have suffered from... it may not kill you IMMEDIATELY Like AIDS, but Trust me, it WILL Kill your Life As YOU Knew it...
It is Progressive and can/will go on to cause other organs to fail and take your families energies, bankrupt bank accounts and any semblance of a "normal life" they had with it.

Statement on XMRV/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
Positive replication study confirms WPI’s findings
The Whittemore Peterson Institute(WPI) would like to congratulate the distinguished authors of the recently released replication study linking XMRV with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Dr. Shyh‐Ching Lo of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Dr. Harvey Alter of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Their published findings in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS), confirm the central thesis of WPI’s 2009 study associating a new human gamma retrovirus, XMRV, with patients diagnosed with myalgic
encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS) while also providing answers for the failure of others to find such a link.
Validation by these prestigious researchers from two United States governmental agencies demonstrates the need for expanded research on human gamma retroviral infection and its association to ME/CFS and other neuro‐immune diseases.
“We are hopeful that with continued collaboration between our government, the biomedical industry and institutions such as the WPI, we will continue to discover answers for the millions around the world who suffer with neuro‐immune diseases,” said Annette Whittemore, president and founder of the Whittemore Peterson Institute. For additional thoughts by Dr. Judy Mikovits, please view (below).
The WPI is committed to the research and further understanding of XMRV and its
relationship to neuro-immune disease. With the recent opening of the institute’s new translational research facilities located on the medical school campus of the University of Nevada, Reno, come expanded opportunities for new avenues of research and development of effective diagnostics and treatments for those affected by neuro-immune disease.

MORE Research is Needed NOW more than EVER so we don't have to go thru another Epidemic without the Research having been DONE when we KNOW we have the knowledge, the Scientific talent and the Drug companies are ready to alter their meds and start Trials ASAP... Please Help us Help YOU>
If you wish to Help:
*You can pass this article on to someone you know that NEEDS to know this info.
*You can pass this article on to someone that you feel would be in a position to Help us.
*You can write a letter to the Dept of HHS and ask Sec Kathleen Sebelius to screen the country's blood supply ASAP for the family of the MRV Retroviruses.
*You can Help by even spreading the Word that a 3rd Retrovirus is OUT THERE or Rather IN OUR BLOOD and the Public needs to BE AWARE NOW....
*You can also be aware that there is a HUGE Difference between "chronic fatigue" and "Chronic Fatigue Syndrome" aka ME/CFS myalgic encephalomyelitis.. that the CDC has Refused to ACKNOWLEDGE FOR 25+ YEARS... "as if diseases will Honor County borders.." in the rest of the world this is called M.E.
*You can also even if it's just $5 Help us by donating to the WPI...
The ONLY Place like this in the WORLD> Seriously !!! They need EVERY Penny for Research they can...They were the FIRST even w/o their building to make the First Breakthru on this illness, but this is ONLY the first skirmish... we have Far to GO...http://www.wpinstitute.org/help/help_donation.html
In the last CENTURY the World has NEVER seen a facility like this built around the patient, with researchers, scientists and Dr's to treat the patients... This is HISTORY MAKING AND NEEDS YOUR SUPPORT cuz you KNOW "The Insurance Co" sure as heck aren't gonna pay for this... So PLease check this out and then collect those pennies, nickels, dimes, dollars and whatever you can gather.. any kind of Fund Raiser you can think of...PLEASE....
