Lack of Autism in the Amish
[link to healthwyze.org]

People outside the alternative health community are often confused by the lack of autism in the Amish people. The Amish do not experience autism, or any of the other learning disabilities that plague our technological society. The Amish live in a society that consists of outdated technologies and ideals, by contemporary standards. Their diet consists of eating organic, fresh, locally-grown produce, and of course, they do not follow the established vaccination routines. To the dismay of the mainstream media and the medical establishment, this has resulted in a healthier people, that are void of all of our chronic diseases. Heart disease, cancer, and diabetes are virtually non-existent in Amish villages. Equally non-existent are modern, chemically-engineered medicines, enhanced (chemically-engineered) foods, G.M.O. foods, and of course, vaccines. How is it that those who are without the "miracles" of modern orthodox medicine are healthier? The truth about health, medicine, and how they both relate to the Amish is becoming an embarrassment to some rather powerful people.

Re: Lack of Autism in the Amish
I was talking about this the other day, jumping to a hasty conclusion that its vaccines is not good science.

We have to remember the amish eat diets free from pesticides, they are genetically isolated and inbreed; meaning certain genes are not in the gene pool, they are fit and the kids dont sit in front of the TV all day.

Plus the amish dont exactly subject themselves to medical surveys or testing, we dont know the actual figures.

There could be lots of different factors.

Or all the chemicals in food, water...no processed crap...they eat real food!
Poor people do poor people things, and rich people do rich people things.

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity.

What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.

The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.

When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is the beginning of the end of any nation.

I'm thinking this^^^ above all other factors.

I don't really buy the whole anti-vaccine arguments and organic food is pretty much a scam to jack up rich people for 2x the normal food price (studies have shown no increased nutritional benefit over food produced using more technological methods).

Also, they spend a lot more time in the sun (even if they do keep a lot of their body covered), which means they probably don't have the severe vitamin D deficiencies we have. I read a really good thing linking Autism to D deficiency in pregnant mothers and in the babies. It keeps them from being able to rid the body of toxic heavy metals.

Doesn't stop it being a fact though. Maybe the amish have genes that make autism disorders rare amongst them.

Re: Lack of Autism in the Amish
I live near many Amish people. They are inbred. They often marry cousins. I have a friend who used to haul milk for them.(he hauled their milk to a local amish cremery) One place he stopped, they had a child who couldn't walk and rolled everywhere(no shit) the other kids were supposed to always watch after this kid. one day the kid rolled under his truck, he didnt see him and ran over him. He was sick to death over this( i have never seen him cry before this) He thought about quitting his job over this incident. Instead of being mad, they were worried he would no longer pick up their milk. Strange people. Also they do eat processed food, I see them all the time in the grocery store (they like ice cream) and they also buy alot of food from the Schawns man.

My point exactly.

Im not saying vaccines are 100% safe we know they aren't, however i dont think this is caused just by vaccines, they live very organic and chemically isolated lives, and the genetic isolation of those kind of communities means that if there are no incidences of genes responsible, they dont get passed around in the first place.

They also don't drink "city water" as well as non-injected meat/dairy.

I don't think vaccines are the only reason, I think it's a lot of factors as well.

As far as the lack of heart of disease and diabetes... they don't have a computer and TV to sit in front of all day. All we hear is that exercise will help all that ails us and this is probably a situation that makes that case perfectly.

Re: Lack of Autism in the Amish
I believe they spend more time outside in the sun getting enough vitamin D to prevent autism...

[link to www.vitamindcouncil.org]

When your body has very low vitamin D that your immune system needed to protect you from foreign substances, your immune system can go haywire and attack its own body. In the other words, it's not good idea to get vaccines when you have such low vitamin D level.

Basically ALL autistic kids and their mothers had very low vitamin D level. The autistic kids do much better when they corrected their vitamin D deficiency but not a cure unfortunately. Just a heck of treatment that made huge improvement.
