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.

Important, topical & readable

This book discusses immunological diseases, vaccine safety & efficacy, the pharmaceutical industry in general & its heavy lobbying of govts. And it focuses specifically on what seem to be the strong links between vaccines & autism. The author is American. His first two children were vaccinated & were fine, but his third regressed into severe autism after vaccination. Hence his particular interest & knowledge, though he isnt opposed to vaccines in principle.

In USA we are given to understand that vaccines are administered at a much higher rate to infants than in UK, about 3x as much. And there has been an explosion in the last 30 years in the number of children with autism & immunological conditions like asthma & food allergies. Something like 3% of vaccinated children in USA have autism as a lasting or developing health impairment which campaigners believe is in large part a consequence of their treatment. Book came out in 2018 so is reasonably up to date.

This is a very readable level-headed book, not too heavy handed & very illuminating in exposing the PR techniques used by the pharma industry. The terms "tobacco science" & "tobacco playbook" are often used, in comparison to the PR techniques, corruption & selective science that were used by the tobacco industry for many decades whilst they were denying the link between smoking & cancer. Same machinations went on in the fossil fuel industry in their persistent denial of climate change. Now it appears that it is big pharma which are using the same techniques to boost & protect their highly profitable industry. Jab away!!

To Big to Fail

The information that J.B. Handley provides in this book is crucial to the discussion of the true cost of the vaccination program. The public remains ill-informed about the impact of vaccinations on the most venerable in our society as do our doctors. And their isn't much sign of this condition changing while the conflicts of interest that exist between the media and the pharmaceutical industry continue. Anyone who understands how capitalism works will understand that what we are seeing is a re-run of Tobacco Industries Playbook. In the end... its just business and Pharma's business must obtain its objective at any cost to the public. The vaccination program is just to big to fail.

very interesting read and so glad I read this

absolutely love this book. Full of facts and knowledge. I now have many questions for my GP and have been swayed into vaccinating my daughter until I look into things further I have decided to prolong her jabs or not have them done until my research has been complete. highly recommend anyone reads this before deciding to vaccinate their child

The most treacherous topic made accessible

Finally my review of the "How to end the autism epidemic" book.

Whether you are new to this topic or a veteran, navigating the depths of the vaccine and autism science is a treacherous terrain to step into.

The under oath depositions of Dr. Plotkin, Dr. Kelley and Dr. Zimmerman all top scientists in their field, are finally sorting the facts from fiction of what is currently known to be true. This alone is a reason why this book should be read by every pediatrician or parent still conflicted and looking for clear answers.

The chapter on the genesis of autism discusses 11 of the most recent and groundbreaking biological studies that piece by piece build a picture of the very plausible mechanism of harm.

Its hard not to gasp in disbelief, interchangeably feel furious and triumphant while reading the depositions.
Some of the passages are so unbelievable, they read like a crime thriller.

It is hard to accept the level of deception happening at such high levels, especially with regards to sealing vital information from the public!

Having listened to this book, re-listened again I am now reading some of the chapters and a thought that comes up is that indeed JB Handley could not have chosen a better title.

My biggest hope is that this book becomes available in other languages to make waves around the world, finding it's way to the hands of pediatricians, autism parents, legislators and scientists that together will help to end the autism epidemic.

Thank you for all you have done JB. Your son is a gift thanks to whom you are fulfilling your higher purpose.

Every reader should listen to this audio, with your story combined with science to back everything you say up blows my mind! The corruption that is hidden from us all makes my skin boil, you truly want to help end the autism epidemic and help make it better for future generations! I won’t give away the ending but the words to close the book brought a tear to my eyes.

The Book of the Decade

Educational, emotional, challenging and extremely important. Please do not participate in the vaccine debate without having at least listened to JB Handley's book.

Not just for parents concerned about autism

If you are questioning or even just curious about why many parents with autism believe their child’s regression into Autism was due to a vaccine appointment, this is for you. If you are wondering why so many in the younger generations have mounting autoimmune disorders, food allergies, eczema, and other conditions, this book is for you. If you don’t want to vaccinate, but you’re not exactly able to communicate why or feel capable to stand up to a doctor, pediatrician, or even your spouse who thinks you’re completely wrong and insane, this is for you. And then have your spouse listen, too. Thank you Mr. Handley for putting together easily digestible science with your personal story. Thank you for your passion. I, too, hope Jameson will be able to read this book one day. I’m sure he’ll cry at the end like I did. You’re an incredible father. -KW

Heart-wrenching yet hopeful.

Out of all the books I have read or listened to on the adverse reactions from vaccines and/or autism, this gave me the most overall information and even made me feel a stronger call to action. I thank the author for his directness, dedication and pure honesty.

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 .

MOST IMPORTANT BOOK ON AUTISM

If you’re a parent like myself with an autistic child, do not hesitate to buy this book! You need to get it ASAP! This book saved my marriage and my child! I just bought the book as well. It’s a game changer! Everything went south after my 3 year old (1 at the time) was vaccinated! The supplement and diet protocols recommendations in the audiobook will save you and your child from years of suffering! God bless the author and his wife for sharing their journey!

Wow! Wow! Wow! A must listen.

So much wisdom shared in this book, wrapped in JB's personal story and supported by science.

Much hope that we are getting closer to ending this epidemic and turning the tide towards health, for the sake of all our children.

This book is easy to follow for people new to the world of autism, yet contains a depth of knowledge that will open the eyes of many who have been on this road for years.

Thank-you JB for writing this book.
