Generation Rescue

Founder:  J.B. Handley

New Internal Documents Reveal Deception by the Centers for Disease Control about Vaccines Role in Autism  If a tobacco company sourced, funded, guided, and wrote scientific studies to prove cigarettes don't cause lung cancer, not a single American would give the studies any credibility.   Yet, our own Centers for Disease Control (CDC), a government agency responsible for administering our National Immunization Program, has done the very same thing by sourcing, funding, guiding, and writing research to try and prove that vaccines, and a mercury preservative used in vaccines, have not fueled an epidemic of autism and other neurodevelopmental disorders in our nation's children.   Why would the CDC do this? See for yourself, from more than two dozen secret documents and emails in the words of those responsible.  The longer the CDC denies the true cause of the autism epidemic, the less resources we can dedicate to treating our children today. It's time to put our childen first.


My name is J.B. Handley. I am the founder of an organization called
Generation Rescue. Our website is located at

By way of background, I am the father of an autistic son, a
Stanford graduate, a Republican, and a successful business owner and you
can see the firm I own at

GenerationRescue is financed 100% by my wife and I. We have no profit
motive and no agenda. When my son was diagnosed 10 months ago, our only
interest was in getting him better by whatever means necessary. A review
of the facts (not the myths, not the hysteria, etc.) revealed to me what
I believe is a self-evident truth: my son, and many other autistic kids
are exhibiting signs of mercury poisoning.

I don't necessarily expect everyone on this list to believe me, but I
hope you can all agree with what I believe are now facts that most
everyone in the mainstream does accept:

1. Mercury is a potent neurotoxin
2. The amount of mercury in vaccines nearly tripled for children
under 2 between 1998-2001 based on additions to the Universal Vaccine
3. The "autism epidemic" started between 1998-2002
4. The amount of mercury received in vaccines exceeded EPA safe
levels by a very wide margin (50-100x, depending on vaccines received in
a day)
5. Thimerosal was finally removed from vaccines in late 2002 (this
is incorrectly stated on the Quakwatch site, fyi)

I think it is safe to say that those 5 points would be readily conceded
as true by most doctors and scientists. Whether mercury and autism have
a cause-effect is where all the debate lies.

I'm not interested in myths, I'm not interested in conspiracy theories.
Frankly, I have a business to run. I'm interested in scientists and
doctors who understand toxicology and can tell me what is the true cause
of my son's ailment. With resources to fly anywhere and talk to anyone,
I have become convinced that my son has mercury poisoning. 6 months into
chelation therapy, his dramatic improvements  and monthly stool/urine
tests make me even more convinced. (I think the statement that chelation
therapy does not work has no basis in fact, by the way. Why do Blue
Cross, Aetna, and Cigna all endorse chelation therapy for heavy metal
toxicity if it is ineffective?)

Rather than respond to this email, I hope you will review the website of
the organization we have founded. Read the Evidence section for
yourself, it's made up of scientists and Doctors just like you, most of
whom have nothing to sell. I think the studies done by the CDC and IOM,
at the very least, are of questionable merit. I don't know how a
rational person could disagree.

Don't worry, you won't hear from me again, I'm too damn busy trying to
save as many kids as we can.

As Carl Sagan once said:

"One of the saddest lessons of history is this:
If we've been bamboozled long enough,
we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle.
We're no longer interested in finding out the truth.
The bamboozle has captured us.
It is simply too painful to acknowledge - even to ourselves - that we've
been so credulous."

God Speed to all of you,
