Q: Why is there no autism in the Amish community?
Healthwyze
June 13, 2013

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 most of the other learning disabilities that plague our technological society. They live in a society that consists of outdated technologies and ideals, at least by contemporary standards.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, who are void of all of our chronic diseases. Heart disease, cancer, and diabetes are virtually non-existent in Amish villages. Equally non-existent are our modern, chemically-engineered medicines, enhanced (chemically engineered) foods, G.M.O. (genetically engineered) foods, and of course, vaccines. How is it that those who are without the so-called “miracles” of modern orthodox medicine are healthier? The truth about health, medicine, and how they both relate to the Amish has become an embarrassment to some rather powerful people.

There have been 3 (yes three) verified cases of autism in the Amish, and two of those children were vaccinated. No information is available for the third child, who was likely vaccinated himself. The strong correlation between vaccinations and autism is becoming undeniable, unless you work for the medical establishment, the government, or Big Media. Proponents of the status quo actually claim that the Amish must have a super gene that makes them immune to autism. They rationalize that autism must be some type of genetic failure, which attacks brains based on religious affiliations. It is truly the best of F.D.A. and A.M.A. science in all its shining glory. Vaccine proponents are willing to espouse any ridiculous explanation, so long as they do not have to accept that their industry is causing chronic disease. Due to all their help, children in the United States have a stunning 2% chance of developing autism, and that percentage is growing rapidly.

Most children are diagnosed through early intervention services recommended by local doctors and county and state services, the Amish do not participate in this network, so while not diagnosed and verified, does not mean it is not occurring.

I would like to know if the recent alzheimer epidemic falls unevenly over various demographics.

Or various types of cancer.

I'm sure there's a lot of data about this kind of thing but is it accessible to the public?

LOL you really think the Amish are posting their farming practices on the internet? I lived in Lancaster Co. PA for ten years and lived around Amish for thirty years. The difference in their farming techniques involves horses not pesticides. Stop buying into the TV version of the Amish. They are nothing like you see on TV.

Not sure where you get the attitude from, I thought we were talking organic food? If not pesticides, then what, horse manure from horses fed with GMO feed? I doubt that as well.

Just because it's not USDA certified with a stamp doesn't mean it couldn't be classified as organic by a group of people who don't even recognize the authority of the USDA.

I said nothing about television, nor do I watch that dribble.

Thanks for the clear answer.

Umm just a question. Does anyone else know that you see no autism/downs in these folk might be because...

1) they keep them in the house and starve them to death?
2) they smother the obvious retard soon after they are born in keeping with their church's doctrine?

I wouldn't trust any reli-tards claim of superiority by faith in believing in some invisible bogey-man or book.

The history of the Anabaptist groups makes them especially suitable for genetic research. They are socially isolated with little genetic inflow. Some groups keep extensive genealogical records that are maintained by local ministers, and can identify their founder populations. They have experienced many genetic bottleneck events caused by successive migrations over their history. Large families are common, with low rates of nonpaternity (3). They have a relatively high standard of medical care (3).

The founder effect is quite pronounced in Anabaptist populations. For example, most of the more than 40,000 Hutterites in North America can trace their ancestry back to a group of 89 founding members (2). Small founding populations and isolation result in genetic homogeneity and can greatly skew the prevalence of certain genetic disorders, particularly autosomal recessive conditions (4). For example, nephropathic cystinosis is a rare autosomal recessive lysosomal storage disorder that affects approximately one in 100,000 children in the general population, with a carrier frequency of approximately one in 150 (5). In an Ontario Old Order Amish population, there is a population-specific mutation that causes cystinosis and is present with a carrier frequency of one in six people, predicting an extraordinarily high disease incidence of one in 144 people (6, and unpublished data). The increased incidence in isolated communities of otherwise rare conditions allows for linkage analysis and identification of causative genes (7,8).
