The Shikimate Pathway: How Vaccines, Environmental Toxins and 5G Damage Immunity

Truth: Interview with RFJ Jr and Dr Zach Bush

December 2020

Film Review

This recent interview between Robert F Kennedy Jr and Dr Zach Bush concerns the essential role of the shikimate pathway in immunity. Found only in bacteria and other single cell organisms, the link between shikimate pathway and the immune system is the focus of two decades of intensive research. Scientists (and a growing number of doctors) worry a variety of toxic environmental pollutants are causing chronic illnesses to skyrocket by poisoning the gut bacteria responsible for our immunity.

Glyphosate (Roundup) is the most common and best studied of these environmental toxins, but PFAS (flame retardant chemicals), the mercury and aluminum found in vaccines, ultrasound and EMF radiation (associated with cellphones, WiFi and 5G) are also likely culprits.

Both Kennedy and Bush believe the poisoning of essential gut bacteria is largely responsible for a five-fold increase in chronic illnesses (eg autism, autoimmune disease and diabetes) since the 1940s.
 
According to Bush, these toxic exposures are rapidly increasing male infertility. At present, over 1/3 of Western men are infertile.
 
For me, the most interesting part of the interview concerns new evidence that neither our blood nor brain are sterile, as I was taught in medical school. Bush asserts there are thousands of viral and bacterial species present in both. In fact, specific brain microbes play an important role in safeguarding brain activity.
 
I was also intrigued to learn about the link between the introduction of arsenic and mercury pesticides in the late 19th century the appearance of a paralytic form of polio in the 1890s.* So-called “infantile paralysis” would reach epidemic proportions with the introduction of DDT following World War II. Likewise polio vaccine was relatively ineffective in eradicating polio prior to the banning of DDT in Western countries in 1972.

Bush, a physician specializing in internal medicine, endocrinology and hospice care, has started a biotech company studying soil microorganisms (the original source of most of our antibiotics) and harvesting the therapeutic chemicals they produce for use in nutritional supplements. He’s also heavily involved in regenerative farming projects in schools and prisons. His website is https://zachbushmd.com/


*According to Bush, human beings have lived in harmony with polio virus for thousands of years. It only began causing paralysis after environmental poisons killed the friendly bacteria that normal prevent it from invading the human nervous system.

 

Whistleblower: Vaccines, Retroviruses and Chronic Illness

A growing body of peer reviewed research suggests some link between the current childhood vaccination schedule and the development of a variety of chronic illnesses. A recent article by John P Thomas in Health Impact News discusses the various retroviruses that contaminate vaccines and human blood products and their possible role in the current epidemic of autism, chronic fatigue syndrome and other autoimmune, neuroimmune and neurodevelopmental disorders.

According to researcher Judy A. Mikovits PhD, approximately 6% of the U.S. population harbors retroviruses with the potential to develop into an acquired immune deficiency. Unlike traditional Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS), these immune disorders are caused by non-HIV retroviruses.

Although 20 million Americans are likely to be infected, not everyone will develop serious illness. Retroviruses in the human body are like sleeping giants. They remain silent unless some external stress activates them. Once activated, they cause diseases such as Myalgic Encephalomyelitis, also called Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS), Chronic Lyme disease, Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia, autism spectrum disorder (ASD), numerous cancers, and a wide range of other chronic disorders.

Mikovits, along with Kent Heckenlively JD, writes about the link between non-HIV retroviruses and these various disorders in their recent book Plague: One Scientist’s Intrepid Search for the Truth about Human Retroviruses and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS), Autism, and Other Diseases.

The Early Link Between Polio and Yellow Fever Vaccine and Chronic Fatigue and Autism

The book reveals how the problem first began with trials of polio and yellow fever vaccines in the early 1930s. This is when the first recorded cases of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and autism appeared. This was followed by several decades in which scientists were developing vaccines in the same laboratories that were injecting mice with different viruses to weaken their immune system. For many years they believed that human and mouse viruses couldn’t interact or travel from one part of the research facility to another. More recently, scientists have discovered that many many of these viruses and retroviruses can travel through the air and infect human beings.

The Discovery of Mouse Retroviruses in Patients with Autism and Chronic Fatigue

In 2006 Mikovits, an immunologist specializing in virology and epigenetics, was studying patients with autism and chronic fatigue syndrome when she discovered very high levels of XMRV (xenotropoic murine retrovirus) and related mouse retroviruses in their blood and tissue. She went on to discover similar elevated levels in Lou Gehrig’s Disease, treatment resistant Lyme disease, and Parkinson’s Disease.

Thomas’s excellent article, which is meticulously researched and documented, provides more detail about the various scientists who have raised concern over the years about pathogenic mouse viruses contaminating vaccines and blood products. In addition to elaborating on Mikovits’s specific research findings, it also details efforts by Big Pharma and the federal government to destroy her career in an effort to cover up the inadvertent exposure of 20 million Americans to pathogenic mouse retroviruses.*

*According Mikovits, Intercept, a recent technology Cerus Corporation developed in 2014, enables vaccine makers and blood banks to cleanse pathogenic viruses and retroviruses from current vaccines and blood products. It does nothing to help the 20 million Americans who have already been infected and run the risk of transmitting pathogenic retroviruses through the exchange of bodily fluids (sex, breast milk and mother-to-infant transmission via the placenta).
