"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
"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 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.
"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
"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
"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
"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
"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

In the process of becoming educated about environmental causes of various chronic health problems that are common in an integrative medicine practice, always looking for pathways to correct underlying causal pathologies, I have read some 18 books about vaccines and about biomedical treatments for autism. This book, by a parent of an autistic child, and another recent book by pediatrician Paul Thomas, The Vaccine Friendly Plan (2017), have led me to reconsider much of what I had been taught and read in the area of vaccine effectiveness, safety, and especially about Informed Consent – a long-held foundational precept in the field of medicine. In fact, these two books together, along with prior exhaustive study of relevant scientific articles and other books on both sides of the issue have led me to the conclusion that standard practice of information provided to parents of children about the vaccines that are recommended fails to qualify as Informed Consent. It would more accurately be described as Uninformed Coercion.
These comments are not intended to claim or imply that vaccines are “the” cause of autism, nor that children should not receive vaccines at all – but rather that there is a dire and pressing need to learn more about vaccine effectiveness and safety, and especially that informed consent and the related issue of parental choice about whether or not their child receives recommended vaccines must be modified. It has been more than eye-opening to understand that vaccines are not, in the unqualified sense, “safe and effective.” Even more so, it has been troubling to realize that we as a profession have failed to provide our patients true informed consent about vaccines. After all, the Hippocratic oath dictates “Primum non nocere” (first do no harm), and awards to families for vaccine adverse events through the VAERS system and the “Vaccine Court” since 1986 have surpassed $3.7 billion - in a system that is expensive, arduous for families to navigate, and stacked against petitioners. The US Supreme Court ruling in 2011 supporting vaccine manufacturers’ exemption from any liability for vaccine damages, because vaccines are “unavoidably unsafe” (Bruesewitz v. Wyeth LLC) is prescient.
I urge all parents or parents-to-be, as well as fellow pediatricians and other health care professionals who administer vaccines, to read this book, as well as Dr. Thomas’ above-referenced work. We all owe J.D. Handley the courtesy of at least reading and considering what his extraordinary synthesis of published and credible evidence shows. I find the information he shares to be compelling, albeit in many cases quite disturbing. With a 42-year professional pediatric background and after about 7 years of intensive study of the science behind vaccines, autism, and their connection or lack thereof, I find the author’s reasoning and the sources he cites to be extraordinarily well conceived and credible. Had I not previously read about many of the lines of research and evidence he cites, I would have found his conclusions shocking to the point of outright dismissal. His sources however are of the highest credibility and his line of reasoning irrefutable.
Two oft-repeated statements made by parents and professionals alike who summarily dismiss the idea that vaccines are not “safe and effective” in the unqualified sense are:
• Vaccines have been proven not to cause autism.
• The science is settled.
The author virtually destroys each of these arguments in a manner that requires one to suspend rationality to continue to believe they are true.
The prevailing cultural tendency to label any parent, or even health care professional, who questions vaccine safety or effectiveness as “anti-vaccine” and often repeating the above two unsupportable assertions, must stop. Eroding confidence and trust in vaccines among both groups can only be repaired through honest, respectful dialogue and following some of the suggestions advanced by Mr. Handley. These two books together offer a roadmap for improving vaccine safety and a wealth of ideas for how both parents and we professionals can begin to reduce the risks inherent in vaccines. They offer hope that the exponential increase in the incidence of autism to one in 32 children (CDC Fall, 2017) can be rolled back to past dramatically lower levels in the future.
Thank you, Mr. Handley, and Dr. Thomas, for providing parents of children and us professionals who work with them indispensable resources for making intelligent decisions about vaccines in a manner that is true Informed Consent. I intend to recommend these two books to all parents and professionals who inquire about resources to become more informed.

JB’s sentence in the introduction is really his purpose for the book; “I know that autism is preventable and recoverable, but we’ll never end this epidemic until we reckon with the lies and obfuscation that enable it”. This book shines a light on those lies that we keep hearing, and anyone who reads it with even a sliver of an open mind will come away from its reading with a far broader understanding of how we got to this situation and what we have to do to move on.
That means that when Americans (through their insurance premiums) pay the 75-cent tax on every vaccine component (as in, the MMR is taxed as $2.25), rather than going to pay the medical bills of children brain damaged by the MMR, they are paying for the vaccine court to commit fraud on the parents of vaccine injured children.
I wouldn't recommend buying a copy of this book. I'd recommend buying several copies and giving them to your doctors, your best friends, and your siblings. This is the book to end the debate. Vaccines do cause autism.
Dr. Kelley: It is contrary to their conclusion. It is not contrary to their data.
This testimony sums up the book and it’s importance. Dr. Richard Kelley is a Johns Hopkins professor of pediatrics (Kennedy Kreiger Institute) who has testified numerous times on behalf of the US government. He’s not the fringe, he’s the top of mainstream medicine on the subject, and he’s stating that though the CDC claims vaccines cannot cause autism, their own data says otherwise.
People, this is BIG. From the testimony of these doctors to the deposition of Plotkin himself to the studies that show exactly how vaccines can trigger autism in susceptible children- this book is world changing for those who actually care enough to investigate it. For those brave enough to read beyond the inflammatory headlines and trolling commentary, you will learn WHY it’s happening and HOW to address this epidemic.
I had to cancel my preorder because it was backlogged and got the kindle version today.
Please read it.
It tells the same story of thousands of parents just like me.
Its a parent telling of what happened to their child and all the twists and turns of government deceit.
It is truly a book that should be a movie-- with ALL of the families saying the same thing
Our children changed after the shots.
Please read and pray that this will stop soon.
