About Kent Heckenlively, J.D.
Kent Heckenlively is a science teacher, an attorney, and a founding contributing editor of Age of Autism. During his undergrad years at St. Mary’s College, Heckenlively worked for U.S. Senator Pete Wilson and was the school’s Rhodes Scholar candidate. In law school at Golden Gate University, he was a writer and editor of the school’s law review, spending his summers working for the U.S. Attorney’s Office in San Francisco.
In the summer of 2010 and 2011, Heckenlively attended the Teacher Research Academy at Lawrence-Livermore National Laboratories, spending eight weeks in a virus lab investigating the expression of micro-RNAs in a monkey model of Ebola infection. Kent is also a member of the Compass group, a consortium of autism parents, leading scientists, and philanthropists in Silicon Valley looking for answers to neuro-immune diseases.
Heckenlively served on the Executive Council of the San Ramon Valley Education Association for several years and was the Health and Safety Committee Chairman for the teacher’s union, representing more than 1,600 educators, therapists, and psychologists
In the fight against chronic diseases, Kent finds great wisdom in the strategy used by Nelson Mandela in South Africa. Mandela believed change could only come about when one engaged in satyagraha, a Buddhist concept which insists on speaking the absolute truth, while at the same time practicing ahimsa, a commitment not to harm those who might be your adversaries.
In November of 2014, Heckenlively published PLAGUE: One Scientist’s Intrepid Search for the Truth About Human Retroviruses, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS), Autism, and Other Diseases, with Dr. Judy Mikovits, a 20-year government scientist and former head of the Lab of Anti-Viral Drug Mechanisms at the National Cancer Institute. The book quickly became one of the best-selling virus books of the last 30 years and has garnered extensive praise from the patient community and leading physicians.
“I must confess that the two years spent writing PLAGUE have changed many of my views,” said Heckenlively. “I’ve been deeply impressed by the humanity and compassion of so many scientists, while at the same time have become more keenly aware of the political and financial obstacles that prevent scientists from making the kind of significant contributions to the well-being of society that they dreamed of when they began their careers.”
Kent and his wife Linda live in Northern California with their two children, Jacqueline and Ben.
Fun fact: Kent played football for De La Salle High School whose Spartans had a 151-game winning streak from 1992 to 2003, a record unequaled by any American sport. This accomplishment is depicted in the 2014 film, When the Game Stands Tall, starring Jim Cazaviel and Laura Dern. Kent firmly believes that even though all this success happened after he stopped playing football for De La Salle it was “just a coincidence” and not a reflection of his athletic skills.

About “Inoculated How Science Lost its Soul in Autism“
“A Compelling Chronicle Which Poses the Question Whether the Autism Epidemic Could Have Been Stopped If Courageous Scientists Had Truly Followed the Evidence”
It reads like a mystery thriller, a lone whistleblower, akin to All the President’s Men’s Deep Throat, spills the government’s secrets. But like the film Contagion, what’s at risk is the health of millions!
But fiction it is not. This remarkable chronicle wades directly into the maelstrom that is the vaccine/autism controversy. Kent Heckenlively’s Inoculated: How Science Lost Its Soul in Autism may initially read like a spy novel but unfolds to a complete accounting of all the actions and documents that comprise a government cover-up, putting a vast number of the nation’s children at great risk to trigger autism once inoculated with the measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) vaccine.
Heckenlively, a science teacher and attorney, uses both of these exacting skills to demonstrate how the Centers for Disease Control’s deliberate choice to inaccurately report test results that showed a distinct correlation between the vaccine and increased autism statistics –and a lack of courage by those who could have spoken up in the early 2000s when indicators began to surface, but instead stayed silent or deliberately perverted the truth, have resulted in an entire generation of autism disabled children—and a fast-rising tide of more.
Beginning with whistleblower Dr William Thompson, a CDC scientist with the National Center for Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities, revealing the manipulated and falsified results to Dr. Brian Hooker, a college biology professor, scientist and autism-activist with an autistic son, Heckenlively traces how the red flags arising in the true results should have spurred international concern, and considerably more vital science to spotlight what was really happening. Instead, the government administrators, so deeply committed to the idea that vaccines are the only path to keeping the world’s people saved from harm—and Big Pharma–went into overdrive to bury the information and stem any further research. Heckenlively, furthermore, shows how bad science only compounded the problem, reinforcing the government’s position that no connection existed. His premise is that the scientists who should have been following the facts to the truth, instead lost their way because of the fear of rocking the boat and opening the Pandora’s box that vaccine-triggered autism would unleash.
Before you’re done reading this exhaustively-researched book, you’ll get to know many of the parties engaged in the public battle for children’s survival (including Andy Wakefield, the controversial filmmaker and researcher behind the film VAXXED which covers some of the same ground), the science behind it, the politics that permeate it and the step-by-step actions that have forestalled real scientific study that could reveal a new path and better protections.
Heckenlively, 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. However, it, too, was steeped in vituperative confrontation.
