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.

Review quote

"Addressing one of the most urgent issues of our time, J.B. Handley's book How to End the Autism Epidemic shows us how we got here and what we need to do. It is a must read for every parent and health care professional."-Zen Honeycutt, Moms Across America "J.B. Handley is arguably the world's most thoughtful, sophisticated, knowledgeable, and indefatigable activist for children's health and safety. As a frontline leader for fifteen years, Handley has led the big fistfight against the Pharma Cartel to force the issue, broadcast the science, and expose the lies behind the vaccine policies that have created an epidemic of chronic disease among our children. Handley has helped bring the issue of toxins in medical products and regulatory corruption to a tipping point. Handley's advocacy has lifted the curtain of lies behind which the autism epidemic has sprouted. When we end this cataclysm, it will be thanks to the dogged character of people like J.B. Handley who have refused to rest in his battle to support parents, protect children, bring justice to injured families, and to punish those responsible for one of the worst scandals in American history. Please read this book and decide for yourself if you still believe that vaccines are 'safe and effective.'"-Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. "I honestly believe J.B. Handley wrote the book that will end the autism epidemic. As I sit here now, in stillness, I want to jump up and down with excitement, but I'm holding back rivers of tears. He breaks down the scientific information in a way that doesn't intimidate the reader. And he lets us know it's okay to be angry. His soul, his fight, his love for his son radiates off the pages. Wow. Bravo, bravo."-Jenny McCarthy, author of Louder Than Words; coauthor of Healing and Preventing Autism "This book is inspired, powerful, the unadulterated truth, and a must read. We have sacrificed too many children at the vaccine altar while our blind belief in the CDC and AAP, government, and the media has prevented us from seeing the conflicts of interest that enable big business and Big Pharma to profit at the expense of our children's health. How to End the Autism Epidemic is one family's story, but it is sadly also a story shared by millions of families. A beautiful normal baby, vaccinated, and then lost to autism and all the horrible medical conditions associated with immune devastation and brain toxicity. Thank you, J.B., for sharing your story and wisdom. Parents and future parents: Read this book now, and say No to business as usual and the status quo. If your pediatrician has not yet done his or her own research and is just parroting the 'vaccines are safe and effective' marketing phrase, it is time for you to get a new pediatrician."-Paul Thomas, MD, coauthor of The Vaccine-Friendly Plan and The Addiction Spectrum "I encourage everyone to read How to End the Autism Epidemic, which has the potential to spark a thoughtful and thorough review of how we can stop vaccine injuries among our nation's children. A dedicated and passionate advocate for medical freedom, J.B. is also a father who has lived the experience no parent would want to endure. His life's work is making sure everyone gets the information they need and vaccine-injured children and their families get the justice they deserve."-Tim Knopp, Oregon State Senator "As parents our job is to be concerned about our children's health. Yet every day in doctors' offices around the country, American parents are told we are being 'irresponsible' or 'selfish' just for asking questions about vaccines. We all want to keep our children safe and healthy, both from infectious diseases and from overexposure to toxins. It's reasonable to be concerned that there are too many vaccines on the schedule and that medications like antibiotics, acetaminophen, and ADHD drugs are being over-prescribed. What's a worried parent to do? For starters, read this book! Sharing his personal story as the father of a boy with autism and taking a close look at the most recent and rigorous science, Stanford-educated J.B. Handley shows how the CDC's aggressive childhood vaccine schedule is connected to the astonishing rise in autism in the United States. How to End the Autism Epidemic is a direct challenge to the American public health establishment and a gift to the millions of parents who find themselves caught in the crosshairs-uncertain of what to think or do-of the seemingly intractable debate about vaccines."-Jennifer Margulis, PhD, author of Your Baby, Your Way; coauthor of The Vaccine-Friendly Plan "I have been thinking about the toxicity of aluminum for thirty-five years. It is my life's work. Before we completed our recent research on aluminum in brain tissue in autism, I could not see a direct link between human exposure to aluminum and autism. I certainly saw no immediate role for aluminum adjuvants in vaccines in autism. The missing link was a mechanism whereby the brain would be subjected to an acute exposure to aluminum, for example, as occurs in aluminum-induced dialysis encephalopathy. Pro-inflammatory cells, some originating from blood and lymph, heavily loaded with a cargo of aluminum in brain tissue in autism provided that missing link. We all tolerate the toxicity of aluminum adjuvants in vaccines. Unfortunately, some of us are predisposed to suffer, as opposed to tolerate, the toxicity of aluminum adjuvants, and this may cause autism.

"Autism is a disease, and it is not inevitable. J.B. Handley's elegant synthesis of what we know and what we need to know argues that autism could and should be preventable. I agree with him."-Professor Christopher Exley, PhD, fellow, Royal Society of Biology; professor of bioinorganic chemistry, Keele University "J.B. Handley tells it like it is. His new book is a masterful synthesis of all the latest threads of autism: the controversies, the science, the legal and policy battles, and the human dimension of the 'movement' that has inspired so many of us to become parent activists. Peppered with jaw-dropping new developments-including depositions from major vaccine science luminaries-Handley weaves a compelling narrative and cuts through the noise to make a powerful and convincing case. Read it. Process what he's telling you. And then stand up and do something about it. The health of generations of children is at stake."-Mark Blaxill, coauthor of The Age of Autism, Vaccines, 2.0, and Denial
