After recovering from a devastating illness that brought him to the edge of despair, Director, Eric Gladen, started researching the science behind autism. His research led him straight into one of the biggest medical controversies of all time: whether or not childhood vaccines cause autism. But Eric wasn’t focused on the vaccines, he was focused on an ingredient that is only used in vaccines to save money: mercury. He would end up quitting his career, moving into an RV, and traveling the country for years interviewing experts and piecing together thousands of studies and leaked documents. This film will do more than turn this debate upside down; it just may solve this devastating epidemic once and for all.
“The public needs to understand what’s really happened here because the public will drive the change,” Director, Eric Gladen says.
“This is a must see film,” says Congressman Dan Burton (R-Ind. 1983-2013), who was the Chairman of the Government Reform and Oversight Committee that led a four year investigation into vaccines and autism. “There is no doubt in my mind that mercury is a major contributing factor in the autism epidemic.”
