The father of a child stricken with autism after being vaccinated—who remains unable to speak—is no stranger to controversy. Inoculated is the outgrowth of research he did for his previous book PLAGUE: One Scientist’s Intrepid Search for the Truth About Human Retroviruses, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS), Autism, and Other Disease, written with Dr. Judy Mikovits, a 20-year government scientist and former Director of the Lab of Anti-Viral Drug Mechanisms at the National Cancer Institute, one of the most popular virus books of the last 30 years. Heckenlively, a science teacher and attorney, uses both of these exacting skills to bring forward the truth behind the controversy.
