INOCULATED – The Barry Segal Foreword…
I was deeply honored to get the following foreword by Barry Segal, the founder of Focus for Health, to my new book, “INOCULATED: How Science Lost its Soul in Autism.” In every campaign of hope there is the challenge of getting individuals who feel marginalized and defeated to rise up and take action. This autism challenge has been a great example of that problem.
Who wants to read another autism book which will just make me feel bad and overwhelmed, you might ask?
I didn’t write this book to make you feel hopeless. I wrote this book to make you feel empowered. I want you to know how fragile our enemy is and how close we are to a cure for this terrible diseases, even for the older children like my daughter who seem so far from hope. I GUARANTEE you that my book is a POSITIVE force for GOOD that can lead us to VICTORY if only enough people buy it, read it, and figure out how to take ACTION.
Foreword – By Barry Segal
As we approach the beginning of 2017, the autism epidemic rages on unhindered and unnoticed by the Federal Government. In the early 1980s the incidence of autism was about 1 in 10,000. Now, it is 1 in 45, and continuing to grow at an exponential pace. I was first exposed to the autism epidemic in the late 2000s and heard recurring accounts of children regressing into the condition following one or more of their infant vaccines. To respond to this tragedy that so many families were and still are facing, I formed Focus Autism in 2009. The controversies surrounding the cause of the autism epidemic are many and the U.S. government’s response is woeful at best.
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) continues to deny any relationship between autism and infant vaccines, despite the mountain of evidence supporting the theory. The revelations of Dr. William Thompson, epidemiologist at the CDC, add substantially to this evidence. Early in 2014, Brian Hooker revealed to me that he was in discussions with a CDC whistleblower and that the whistleblower was revealing a consistent pattern of corruption in the CDC’s Immunization Safety Office. What we suspected all along was now being confirmed by an insider.
Covering up an autism epidemic and its causes is no trivial thing. The ramifications are astounding. The over a million children in the U.S. alone now affected by the epidemic, the hundreds of billions of dollars it will require to take care of these children, not to mention 5000 vaccine injury cases in the U.S. government’s “Vaccine Court” that were denied justice due to the cover up. And then there are the scientific careers that were laid waste for those brave souls who dared to enter this research area with an open mind. The term “Wakefielded” is now synonymous with being scientifically discredited, fileted by the press and ostracized by one’s own countrymen. Dr. Judy Mikovits was actually thrown in jail over her important work on the presence of retrovirus particles in vaccines. Likewise, Brandy Vaughn is constantly haunted by surveillance from the pharmaceutical industry where she was once employed, simply because she has spoken publicly regarding the lack of appropriate testing for vaccines.
The impact that autism has on families is tremendous. Having a child with autism will clean out your bank account, ruin your marriage and put a huge strain on any other children in the family. Adding insult to injury, the autism epidemic and genetic susceptibility to vaccine injury has led to many families having more than one child on the autism spectrum. And autism isn’t “Rain Man”. This misconception is laughable to any parent of an affected child. “Rain Man” portrayed a very high-functioning young man with autism – this is nowhere close to the norm. Children with low functioning autism may or may not have the ability to speak, many are not toilet trained and more are haunted by constant pain, head pain, gut pain, joint and muscle pain. Many of these children have seizures, some of which require hospitalization.
In the face of ever increasing pressure to mandate all vaccines nationwide, it is imperative that word get out regarding the causes of autism including the identification of the children most vulnerable for this and other types of damage caused by infant vaccines. It is far past time to peel back the layers of this controversy, expose the criminal actions by CDC officials and others within the government and the pharmaceutical industry and help children recover. The fact that this crisis could have been prevented means that it can still be stopped dead in its tracks.
Kent Heckenlively’s fine book, INOCULATED is the first systematic effort to tell the entire story of vaccines and autism, starting with the 1986 National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act, a law which fundamentally changed the arrangement of legal checks and balances regarding vaccine safety. Vaccines are the only products in our society which are not covered by our traditional civil justice system. I want to stress that there are still many things we do not know about autism. But the one thing that everybody should agree upon is that no subject can be off-limits when it comes to the health of our children.

To my brothers and sisters in this struggle, I know how difficult the road has been.
I know the friends and family members you have lost because you have kept the faith with the truth about what happened to your child. I know that you often feel hopeless about the future. I have often felt the same, but I do not now.
This is a battle we can WIN. My own investigation has convinced me of how WEAK the other side is at this moment in history. It is ALL FALLING APART FOR THEM. I know you want to be the first to start tearing down the wall and creating a new future for your children. Rise up! Rise up! Rise up!
