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 crisis--one that corresponds in lockstep with an ever-growing vaccine schedule. Why do our public health officials refuse to investigate this properly--or 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.

Informative, and easy to follow. Essential for anyone with questions on vaccines.

In 100 years, no one will know offhand who Robert Muller, Donald Trump, or Osama Bin Laden were, but they will shudder in horror with the knowledge that this is the generation where parents blithely maimed and killed their beloved children because someone in a white lab coat told them to. They will look at us with the same incredulity as as we look at those in the 17th century who executed peaceful Quakers on Boston common. This book proves that vaccines are neither safe nor effective, and are quite dangerous when given in rapid succession to babies under a year old, and it details the horrifying corruption going on now even as you read this (the vaccine industry has mounted a multi-million dollar campaign to make all vaccination mandatory in all 50 states and to strike down exemptions on any basis - and the recent epidemics were cause by fully vaccinated people shedding their illness - look up the USS Fort McHenry). It proves how "herd immunity' is a myth. It details how the vaccine industry has used the Tobacco playbook, including officials sighing with feigned exasperation that "The science is settled." The CDC and the FDA profit tremendously from vaccines, so there is a clear conflict of interest - the agencies who mandate vaccines should not earn profits from them. And, the 800-pound gorilla in the corner is the now absolutely clear link between vaccines and the autism epidemic, which has reached catastrophic proportions. Congress created the epidemic (by giving vaccine manufacturers a "get out of jail free" card in the form of the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act, which gives them total legal immunity, thereby removing any incentive for them to make their products either safe or effective) and Handley states that now Congress must end it. This book is literally history in the making - buy a copy and set it aside for your grandchildren so they will know we weren't ALL so easily duped.

This book is a mess and a danger to people. Not only is it based on faked studies that have been disproved over and over again, it is implying causation to correlation. Terrible book. I hope that people realize that this is garbage and out to scare people. It is not based in fact or science. Just another example of ableism and fear of those that are even slightly different.

This book is extraordinary!
The fact is, vaccines COULD be much safer --- IF we had decent safety testing, with REAL placebos and didn't let pharma rush them to market, mandate them for children, make egregious profits from them and have zero liability when they hurt children.
Our current system pretty much guarantees a lot of children will be unnecessarily harmed. Pharma is the biggest advertiser, so most media won't say anything that challenges their narrative, and they are a big donor to both political parties, so few politicians will hold them accountable or push bills they don't like.

Author J.B. Handley has an incredible grasp of the science, and does an excellent job of explaining it, while also helping the reader to appreciate the forces that have misled so many about what the evidence actually says.
Interestingly -- THE top pediatric neurologist, who HHS hired as an expert witness to defend the US government from claims by parents that their children's autism was caused by a vaccine, has now come forward alleging the government attorneys misled the court about his expert opinion -- Dr. Zimmerman says, "Vaccines CAN cause autism in some children!"
