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.

I had the opportunity to read this pre-release. Short summary: Wow!
As a parent of two children with autism, I have been in this fight for over 16 years. I have read a number of books on the topic
, and an endless amount of articles and research papers related to autism. I felt I had a good understanding of the rabbit hole we've gone down, but this book has explosive new information not seen before.
If you work in the medical industry, please read this book. Understand that your industry has been influenced and corrupted by outside agencies. The result is multiple generations of sick children, compounding harm being done day after day, all in the name of "prevention".
Everything in this book of note is fact, not opinion. If you read it and choose not to accept the facts, you are doing a disservice to yourself and all children.
Read this, then act. Share it with others, share it with your child's physician, share it with other parents, other grandparents, all loved ones. This information must be widely known and understood.
We are selling the health of our children to an industry that has no compelling interest in their health, and no legal liability for any wrongdoing. They have been immune since 1986, and have taken full advantage of that fact. Government watchdogs haven't submitted safety reports as required by law every two years since the inception of the immunity for the manufactures. That's 30+ years of no one watching, and 30+ years of harm.
It's time to reconcile what we've done, end the harm going forward, and start to pick up the pieces of 1 in 36 children with autism. Read this book. Act now to end the epidemic.
