Publisher's Summary

In How to End the Autism Epidemic, Generation Rescue’s cofounder 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 38 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 50. Or that in the 1980s, the rate of autism was one in 10,000 children. Today it’s one in 36. 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. 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.

Very well researched and written

I hope this book is read far and wide. So well written! Sadly I’m not hopeful. So many will not take the time or open their mind to even listen to another point of view. The two camps seem to be preparing for war when we need open discussion.
A contraindication to vaccine that I think is massive (and not considered by any doctor I’ve encountered) is recent concussion. Even suspected. I wish this book discussed this more.
Still, I highly recommend this book. The best I’ve read in this subject.

Every parent needs to read this BEFORE vaccinating

Some of us have spent years researching what's in this book and so thorough and current with respect to information pediatricians and health care practitioners typically have no idea exists, for both causes of brain damage and the healing of it after the fact. Ideally any parent or child care giver making medical decisions for children would read this before having kids and vaccination to make informed choices for their family, genetics and needs, but even if they're like me and only started researching after the damage is done, the protocols and modalities used to also heal are kids are right here to learn from. my family is proof that 1. environmental toxins cause behavioral and cognative damage and 2. changing food, supporting mitochondrial function and removing those toxins can heal our kids. I did what any "good" scientist and mum would do, which was trust science drives policy, and trust my pediatricians understood the biology involved. I was very wrong. You don't need a masters in biology, or to spend every waking moment like JB and his wife have along with so many of us with kids damaged by vaccines and other toxic exposures to heal your kids, and as importantly prevent the same poor assumptions by others that led to this book's existence... Just: read. learn. share. apply. Thank you so much JB for putting into words what so many of us have been through (from one end of the damaged spectrum to the other) and outlining the mess that's best descibed as tobacco science surrounding it.

Thank You!

As a father of 2 boys with autism spectrum disorder I found this story is like my own. It contains so much information I never knew and was easy to understand with the authors descriptions. All I can say is that everyone needs to read or listen to this book. I have a feeling it will change everyone opinions, views and lives.

All parents should listen to this

I felt this was an incredibly informative book. JB was very thorough-covering so many questions and issues that get debated over. As a mom who has been searching for scientific reasons of whether to vaccinate or not to vaccinate my little boy, this was a necessary book to go through.

Essential info for all

I think this is a very essential read for everyone who has been vaccinated, might get vaccinated or might have a child vaccinated or has a vaccine damaged child.
I was disappointed near the end when he seemed to say certain vaccines might be safe. He might have been trying to win over pro vaxxers but as no vaccine has been tested for safety I don’t think he should have even suggested any. As well, the other ingredients besides aluminum and mercury are often toxic too so how can they be just ruled out. No vaccine should be taken until its proven safe (real unbiased studies only please) and effective...period! This is an excellent starting point for vaccine research...make bookmarks or take notes because much of his info you will see confirmed again and again as you research. It’s a common belief now that all of us that have been vaccinated have been damaged. I have yet to encounter someone who hasn’t but most don’t know it...they just think their ailments, disorders, allergies, autoimmune diseases, gastrointestinal problems, SIDS, skin problems and brain dysfunctions and more are just naturally derived and they seem content with not ever knowing a cause. Most are completely unaware that many of these modern ailments didn’t even exist before or were very rare and have exploded right along with the prevalence of vaccines and pesticides.

Is anybody looking out for safety or our children??

I have been following the vaccine issue for some years now. It’s time to develop a system to test safety and efficacy of vaccines and to ensure product safety by the removal of blanket protection of manufacturers. This is a chemistry experiment gone bad using US citizens as lab rats .

It was like listening to the story of my son.

Book was very factual and very well sited. describes the regression we saw in my son very accurately. A must read for anyone having a child or with a child recently diagnosed on the spectrum.

For every parent (and every pediatrician)

I love this book for detailing what has happened in our vaccine court (and in the pharmaceutical industry) that so few people are aware of. The sworn testimony from two experts from Johns Hopkins stating that vaccines can cause autism in a certain subset of children is validating for so many parents. I love that everything in this book is verifiable by testimony under oath or peer-reviewed science. This book is a go-to for all parents. And every pediatrician in this country needs a copy of this book.

amazing book

I can't help but replace each story of JBs with memories and struggles of our own. To replace the word Autism with the "Gut dysfunction, behavioral distress and general hypersensitivities" which is what our daughter struggles with daily. She will turn 5 next week and I often wonder if her story would be different had I not said Ok to those shots... How our family would NOT have been destroyed financially and emotionally crippled by multiple injections.

But, I thank GOD for opening my eyes even though it took 3 years. I thank him for not taking my baby through Autism or Death. I pray everyday that she does not get cancer. I pray that she can get through school with no accidents or tantrums. I try not to beat myself up because I tried to speak up. Our pediatrician did not listen and now my innocent child suffers.

I enjoyed everything about this book from reviewing what I already knew to learning stuff I didn't know. If there was one thing I would change, I would put further emphasis on the children that fall somewhere below an ASD dx. (Which of course defeats the titling.) Meaning those kids who are not Autistic but clearly have a vaccine injury. That huge crack where there are no gov't programs, no nonprofits, no public figures speaking out.

After my baby was hospitalized with a vaccine injury, we had nowhere to turn for help. Who advocates for the 1 day olds? Who is the voice for the 2, 4 and 6 month olds who suffer? These families are bedside, no income, no voice. Then they get sidelined again when it comes to medical exemption from school because they were not injured enough the first 4 or 5 or 7 times. It is absolutely immoral. Ask me how I know.

If there is risk there must be choice AND proper science.

At times the emotion overshadowed the science

The science and politics revealed is crucial, and needs to be brought to the public dialogue without stigma. The link between lobbying money, executive branch departments and public harm is clear and we'll documented by Handley.

Handley's passionate emotional are understandable, and appropriate in the epilogue. If there is a second edition I suggest doubling down on the science and removing many of the "I believe statements" as they inevitably detracted from the weight of the scientific argument.

On the whole well done Handley, the truth is needed. Thank you.

So glad I read it

I loved the author himself narrating this and have messaged him personally and know his compassion and knowledge on this subject. He went through it with his son and wants you to read it to save your children or anyone you love.

Best book on the Autism epidemic I have ever read

I have listened to this book so many times now. Each time its impact only gets greater. JB Handley has written a book that is so chock full of evidence of why children today are so sick, unhealthy and on the spectrum that I am dumbfounded as to how anyone could read it and not be sent spiralling into massive cognitive dissonance. Its a rabbit hole that most will turn around in and hop right out again because it sure isn't a comfortable journey. JB is obviously an intelligent man and loving father who has spent the last 15 years asking the questions most of us dont think to ask because we have become slovenly at critical thinking. We expect that our governments, pharma corporations and the medical institutions have our backs... look around you..if all was as it should be we would all be way, way healthier. Time to take back ownership of our bodies and minds...

Mind Blown

Every adult should read this book. For the sake of our affected children and the future health of humanity as a whole, please take the time to read it and read it with an open mind. J.B. Handley did a phenomenal job researching, compiling data, and speaking the TRUTH about everything he learned with the EVIDENCE to back it up. 1 in 36 children in the US... this has to STOP.
