Amish don't have autism...

Interesting article. I do think we are poisoning ourselves with our environment...plastic, microwaves, cell phones, additives (poisons), preservatives, and on and on the list goes. The ingredient list in vaccines includes such things as formaldahyde (which poison control says is deadly at ANY level), aluminum (which is time and time again proven to cause brain damage), mercury (which has been greatly advertised to no longer be in vaccines, but is still allowed to be in the flu shot - which is then recommended to be injected into ones body ANNUALLY), aborted fetal tissue, again, this is a list that could go on and on...that is then injected into a person's body without first going through our God designed defenses first.
The Amish Don’t Get Autism? And They Don’t Get Vaccinations – Possible Link?
Posted on June 7, 2011 by WV Outpost

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 The Amish live in a society that consists of outdated technologies and ideals, by contemporary standards.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

When the Amish are simply left alone, to live free of chemical toxins found in our medicines and foods, they are not plagued with diseases, learning disabilities, or autism. They are categorically more intelligent, with the exception of advanced (college-level) writing skills, which is explainable by the fact that English is not their primary language. Could it be those same Amish ‘super genes’ at work again? Society could learn greatly from their example, if we would only stop poisoning ourselves, and our children on a routine basis


  1. Correlation does not mean causation.... think of it in this silly way---"With a decrease in the number of pirates, there has been an increase in global warming over the same period.
    Therefore, global warming is caused by a lack of pirates." Ha ha funny, but do you see what correlation does not mean causation, means?

    Do the Amish drink? Do the Amish eat out of plastic? And on and on and on.... There are surely better and more testable reasons that the Amish have a low rate of Autism. One reason may be that doctors, in the general American public, don't know what is wrong with a child so they diagnose Autism, like Autism is some kind of "catch all".

    Vaccinations have been proven NOT to cause Autism again and again and again..... Gotta love the religious right!

  2. It's disturbing to me how quickly people want to dismiss any links between vaccinations and autism, when there is far too many coincidences to overlook. Vaccinations deliver "dead" viruses directly to your bloodstream, completely bypassing your body's first natural defense line (mucous membranes). Combined with heavy metal preservatives, this can cause serious side effects like chronic brain inflammation during a critical time of development. PP: Ask yourself: Who is proving vaccines safe? Some of the most intelligent, educated parents around where I live don't vaccinate. We live in SF Bay Area. Only Liberal Lefties, no religious right around here!

  3. This is definitely something to thing about. I have a friend with an autistic child, who says the signs were clear from birth.

    I have another whose son's austism is now barely detectable. She feels that he made great strides once she cut dairy and gluten out of his diet.

    It may be possible that the Amish diet, which is so much more toxin-free, has a lot to do with their low autism rate.

  4. Autism causing or no, the benefits of vaccinations do not outweigh the risks IMO. That is interesting info about the Amish. Thanks for sharing.

  5. Seriously, you're killing me. There is NO link between vaccination and autism. Correlation vs. causation, take a basic statistics class! The original doctor who published the study that started the vaccine hysteria in the Lancet later admitted he falsified data and his medical license was suspended. Educate yourself! This is bunk science!

  6. I only said the article was interesting. I started off by saying that I think we are poisoning ourselves, and that there are a lot of reasons for all of the all of the toxins and poisons we are putting into our foods (which is a big reason why I have cows in my field!), the overuse of antibiotics (which I HATE having to use from time to time, and work hard to rebuild the immune system of anyone who had to use them), and so many more!

    You seem very quick to believe the vaccine companies and the government, who are the ones saying that vaccines are safe...looking at the evidence, I have chosen not to vaccinate my younger ones - my older ones had the misfortune of not having a mother who looked into things, but who also trusted what I was told. I later found out that my pediatrician doesn't vaccinate his own children because of ingredient list of vaccines. I found looking at the charts that show disease rates to be very informative...
