Why is Autism non-existent in the Amish community?
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 They live in a society that consists of outdated technologies and ideals, at least by contemporary standards.
The Amish live free of the chemicals and toxins we have in our foods, they do not vaccinate their children, nor do they live with technology buzzing all around them twenty four hours a day, seven days a week like the rest of the public does.
The Amish also do not suffer from Autism or the learning disabilities that normal children suffer with. People outside the alternative health community are confused and wonder at this particular health issue.
Their diets consist of organic, fresh, homemade, locally grown meals, the result is a people, void of all chronic diseases, a healthier people. In the Amish community heart disease, cancer and diabetes, are virtually non-existent. How is it that people without chemically engineered prescription medicines and chemically engineered foods, are healthier?
The truth of health related to foods and medicines is an embarrassment to those in the "big business" industry 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.
In Olmsted’s case, the pharmaceutical vaccine activists put their well-funded efforts behind disparaging him and the Amish article, falsely claiming that a vaccine-autism link has been “debunked.” One result of their efforts can be seen in the skewed editing of Olmsted’s Wikipedia biography. It’s worth reading so that you can begin to recognize the wording and hallmarks of vaccine activist propaganda in blogs, articles, ads, on the news and in social media.
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.
