Why is autism so rare among Amish?

Thomas Corriher, from the Health Wyze report:

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The Amish live in a society that consists of outdated technologies and ideals, by contemporary standards.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.

There have been 3 (yes three) verified cases of autism in the Amish, and at least two of those children were vaccinated.  No information is available for the third.  The strong correlation between vaccinations and autism is absolutely undeniable, unless you work for the medical establishment, the government, or Big Media.  Proponents of the status-quo claim that the Amish obviously have a special super gene that makes them immune to autism.  They pathetically try to rationalize that autism is some type of genetic failure (i.e. God’s fault), which attacks a brain based on religious affiliation.  We’re tentatively expecting a space alien theory next, in a similar vein to the aliens theory used to attack those who believe in a Creator.  This is truly is 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 entire industry of vaccinations is causing chronic disease, leaving autism for 1 in every 100 children now.

Beware When The G’ Man Comes Knocking

The Amish are constantly harassed by health officials, who attempt to convince them to vaccinate their children.  Whilst most Amish still refuse to vaccinate, a small minority are beginning to succumb to the scare tactics.  This continues despite the fact that health officials actually have no legal right to visit peoples’ homes and harass them into accepting these poisons.  As more of the Amish vaccinate, the autism rates in their community will rise.  Fortunately, the majority of the Amish still contend that vaccinations are against God’s will, which interestingly enough, does indeed seem to be bringing about blessings on their children….”

Although it’s not mentioned in the article, the Amish are also more likely to drink raw milk.

    I second AJ on this one. I do not agree with everything the Amish do, but I have talked personally to many, many Amish people many, many times, been to their farms frequently in the past, and I have a world of respect (and love) for them.

    I have no such similar respect for ‘modern scientific experts’ and their followers, including the ones I have encountered here at The Bovine.

    Great article. I’m going to try to get this published at Op-Ed News where I write frequently as a commenter and who are presently refusing to publish ‘anti-vaccine’ articles….

    Good job, The Bovine.

    This is the most ridiculous unresearched article I’ve seen in a very long time. The Amish most certainly DO get autism, and unfortunately, more and more of them are vaccinating,to the point that there are more young Amish parents who do vaccinate their children than who don’t, primarily because so many now choose a hospital birth over a home birth, and because so many are now going to mainstream schools, rather than Amish schools . They also shop at Aldi’s and Walmart and fill their carts with TONS of junk foods. They love to eat at McDonald’s and Dairy Queen, and they are just as likely to buy GMOs as any “English.” The truth is the author of this article has taken information from a well-written article from many years back that was originally done by writer Dan Olmsted, and assumed that everything Olmsted found back then is true today. Well, it’s NOT. I have lived in the middle of Amish country for over 20 years. I’ve ridden in their buggies with them, sat down to dinner with them, and have talked to them about vaccines and autism, and I am telling you this article by Corriher is just plain ERRONEOUS Also, the photo above is NOT from a true Amish family–unless it’s TV personalities from that dumb Breaking Amish show–because true Amish adults do not pose for the camera.
