In How to End the Autism Epidemic, Generation Rescue’s co-founder J.B. Handley offers a compelling, science-based explanation of what’s causing the autism epidemic, the lies that enable its perpetuation, and the steps we must take as parents and as a society in order to end it.
While many parents have heard the rhetoric that vaccines are safe and effective and that the science is settled about the relationship between vaccines and autism, few realize that in the 1960s, American children received three vaccines compared to the thirty-eight they receive today. Or that when parents are told that the odds of an adverse reaction are “one in a million,” the odds are actually one in fifty. Or that in the 1980s, the rate of autism was one in ten thousand children. Today it’s one in thirty-six.
Parents, educators, and social service professionals around the country are sounding an alarm that we are in the midst of a devastating public health crisisone that corresponds in lockstep with an ever-growing vaccine schedule. Why do our public health officials refuse to investigate this properlyor even acknowledge it?
In How to End the Autism Epidemic, Handley confronts and dismantles the most common lies about vaccines and autism. He then lays out, in detail, what the truth actually is: new published science links the aluminium adjuvant used in vaccines to immune activation events in the brains of infants, triggering autism; and there is a clear legal basis for the statement that vaccines cause autism, including previously undisclosed depositions of prominent autism scientists under oath.
While Handley’s argument is unsparing, his position is ultimately moderate and constructive: we must continue to investigate the safety of vaccines, we must adopt a position of informed consent, and every individual vaccine must be considered on its own merits. This issue is far from settled. By refusing to engage with parents and other stakeholders in a meaningful way, our public health officials destroy the public trust and enable the suffering of countless children and families.

ook is seriously a MUST READ. Chalk full of peer-reviewed research in palatable form, parallel to the ridiculous politics, pressure and historial persistence of an industry that needs to put people and our precious children before profits once and for all. The perils and prevalence of vaccine injury are real and avoidable, with conditions like Autism that countless families have had to unnecessarily endure from environmental toxins being injected without prior genetic screening for vulnerabilities—including the author's own family with his son—just needs to stop before further collateral damage is done. Just like Big Tobacco hid and stamped out narratives that didn't align with their business objectives (and harnessed the influence of their large advertising budgets with media outlets to steer clear from any real reporting), so too have Big Pharma companies hid, squashed and obstructed true research and reporting with vaccines. The Supreme Court ruled that vaccines are “unavoidably unsafe” in 2016, 30 years after legislation was passed to protect vaccine manufacturers from being sued directly. No other industry benefits from this kind of protection, especially for a product that some try and would mandate for all without full informed consent, and yet the safety studies that were tasked to be done by Health and Human Services when the 1986 National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act (42 U.S.C. §§ 300aa-1 to 300aa-34) was put into place have not been done on vaccines in over 30 years. However, in the meantime, nearly $4 BILLION has been awarded in settlements to families from the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program, even for Autism. Enough is enough! Read this book to catch up on the most breaking science from around the world and what will be remembered as the largest scandal impacting Americans since the rise and fall of Big Tobacco. Read this book to join those who want the absolute truth to help protect our children, while ending the protection that Pharma plans on, lobbies around, and profits from, at the expense of our loved ones. Demand better policies and full disclosure once and for all, and let's follow J.B. Handley's lead and work to End the Autism Epidemic!
This is the most important book of my lifetime. Every parent, doctor, elected official, public health offical-- everyone must read it. Autism in the 1970's was 1 in 10,000 (proof in the way of scientific studies are in the book). Now, it's estimated to be about 1 in 38 (also in the book, and per latest CDC data) and still rising. More than half of those with autism are non-verbal and/or low functioning, with health and emotional and developmental issues. A new study shows that only 14% of young adults with autism are able to hold down a job. Something has gone terribly wrong with the health of our children--who are our future. This book gives undeniable evidence -- from rigorous peer-reviewed studies, sworn testimonies, legal depositions, and shocking data -- that while there are many environmental assaults harming the immunological and neurological development of children today and adding to the autism epidemic, the most comprehensive and universal exposure is to one category. Vaccines. Which are DESIGNED to alter the immune system. In the past decade, it has been learned that autism is related to immune activation at critical stages of neurological development. Not everyone exposed to vaccines develops autism--just like not everyone who smokes gets cancer--there is genetic and current-health-status susceptibility. JB Handley's book reveals the truth about autism, gives hope for healing, and is a call for vaccine policy and industry reform. The opioid crisis is nothing compared to this -- same players -- far more victims.
17 years ago, my son suffered a devastating vaccine-induced encephalopathy manifesting in permanent brain damage. "Autism" is one of his many resulting diagnoses. I will forever regret that it wasn't until AFTER my son's injury that I began to do the research I should have done before blindly following the CDC's recommended vaccine schedule. JB Handley, along with thousands of other parents I've met in the past 17 years, had the same experience. In his book "How to End the Autism Epidemic", Handley masterfully spells out the corruption in the U.S. vaccine program that has led to the children's health crisis we are now facing. He destroys the tired, false claim that vaccines don't cause autism. He exposes the layers of lies that pharma and their well-paid lobbyists have spun to craft our current coercive vaccine policy. And he outlines a common-sense plan to stop the runaway train of vaccine injuries. READ THIS BOOK! And then stand up and fight back. Autism is at 1 in 36 American kids and rising. If we don't stop allowing our children's brains to be destroyed by overvaccination, we will soon have more people needing care in our country than there are providers left to care for them.
WOW!!! I speak from two standpoints. As a mom of twins with SEVERE Autism but also a student in the Public Health field and passionate about environmental health and safety, this book is JAW-DROPPING! ALL PUBLIC HEALTH OFFICIALS MUST READ THIS BOOK! This book contains NEW and VITAL information that covers every nook and cranny there is to discuss regarding the vaccines and Autism connection. What we did not know previously in this debate, we now know and cannot deny that VACCINES CAUSE AUTISM. As public health officials, we must understand that this is typically how the truth presents itself. According to 19th century German philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer, “All truth passes through three stages: First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as self-evident." We need to understand that it typically takes 20+ years for the research to show what we've known all along... As public health officials, we know this to be true from history with the fight against the tobacco industry, the fight against DDT poisoning and Rachel Carson's controversial book "Silent Spring", the more recent fight for clean water in the Flint, Michigan lead water crisis, the fight for justice for children in Tom's River developing childhood cancer due to pollution from dumping chemicals into the water, and so on... As public health officials, we understand corruption can exist in large corporations and in government when it comes to scientific experiments and other atrocities, such as in the Tuskegee study, Nazi human experiments, surgical experiments on slaves, Guatemala syphilis study, Flint Michigan lead water crisis, and so on... As public health officials, we know that we must honor beneficence, nonmaleficence, autonomy, and justice... As public health officials, we NEED to read this book and understand that the science was NEVER settled on vaccines and Autism and that the science is now there that proves vaccines can and do cause Autism. As a mom of twins with Autism, I desperately beg for each one of you to read this book and see for yourself. Jb Handley lays out the information and the science behind the truth about the Autism epidemic so delicately and accurately that this book can be read by anyone and easily be understood. This book needs to be read by every single person who cares for a child because our children are sick, they are suffering, and they need our help. God bless Jb for selflessly dedicating his time and research to gift us with this information so that we may know better and do better to help our future generations of children.
Invaluable as a tool to introduce and get up to speed on the topic of autism and vaccines! Also contains informative portions for those well-versed on the vaccine-autism link, and should be useful in exemplifying the vaccine political and scientific landscape, also what can lie behind the landscape, for anyone planning to vaccinate themselves or a child in the future.
The snowball just keeps getting larger as time goes on. Fifteen years ago, I made the best parenting decision ever. I learned as much as I could about each vaccine and the childhood illness that it supposedly protected one from. I didn’t have much to go on then, a Dr. Tenpenny DVD and a few testimonials from friends, but I was confident in my decision. In this day and age, with the mountains of evidence we have, there is no excuse. JB Handley wrote THE book that should be the final nail in the coffin for the vaccine religious community or those on the fence. Imperative information all in one place, it covers history, fraud, corruption, brand new under oath depositions, new science, parent testimonials and so much more. With the current autism rate of 1 in 36 children and the forecasted 1 in 2 by 2025, JB Handley’s immediate action plan is imperative for our future. This is a MUST read. It’s simply irrefutable evidence. We have an epidemic … and now we can prove why.
