Summary : How to End the Autism Epidemic (Unabridged)

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.
