ramblings of a burnt out mom

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  The Amish live in a society that consists of outdated technologies and ideals, by contemporary standards.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 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 so extremely 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) known 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 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.  It 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 vaccination is against God's will, which interestingly enough, does indeed seem to be bringing about blessings on their children.

Many of the viruses which children are vaccinated against are no longer circulating.  However, fear tactics by the media have led frightened parents to vaccinate their children against these viruses anyway.  One of those viruses is polio.  Dr. Sherri Tenpenny reported that the most recent case seen in the Western Hemisphere was in Peru, in 1991.  The World Health Organization (W.H.O.) declared the western hemisphere free of Polio in 1994.  Such inconvenient figures are not cited by the mainstream media, doctors, or the American Medical Association.

On October 14, 2005, the media swung into action after the vaccine-strain of the polio virus was found in the stools of four Amish children.  The media initially declined to mention that the polio virus was the chemically-inactivated version, which is only found inside the oral polio vaccine.  Of course, this discovery was exploited to terrorize parents who avoid vaccines, and to recreate the disease hysteria that existed in the first half of the 20th century.

Big Business:  Intentionally Creating a Paralyzing Pandemic

The horrors of polio were greatly exaggerated by the allopathic establishment's across-the-board removal of tonsils, which is the only organ that produces polio antibodies.  Coincidentally, around the same time, the newly-created F.D.A. began suppressing the use of silver in medicines, which were the only substances known to kill viruses (like polio).  Finally, 'the solution' that industry desired, namely a vaccine, was released at the time that the epidemic was naturally ending, so that the industry's vaccine could be given credit.  All of this was orchestrated to manipulate the masses into buying into vaccines, radiation, and chemistry for health.

"During the polio epidemics, it was found that people who had their tonsils removed were 3 - 5 times more likely to develop paralysis... There were many at that time that suggested that polio was an iatrogenic disease [caused by the medical establishment] ... we caused thousands of cases of paralysis.  We did not cause the polio, but we converted people who would have recovered from a viral illness into people with a paralytic illness."

- Dr. Mark Donohoe

With vaccinations, we convert people who may have had natural immune-strengthening infections like the flu, or chickenpox, into people who have life-changing disorders like autism.  None of the Amish children who had polio in their stools experienced paralysis, or any other horrific symptoms.  That fortunate conclusion to their infections is likely the result of their lack of the 'miracles' of allopathic medicine.

We must wonder how four Amish children who live in an isolated community managed to become exposed to the unique chemically-inactivated vaccine strain of the polio virus.  It is more than likely that such a thing was intentional, especially when the harassment by local health officials is considered.  In addition, the vaccine strain that was discovered had not been used for five years, due to the possibility of it causing paralysis.  After all, if some Amish children were to get sickened by the polio virus, the Amish may all rush to get their children vaccinated, and the science of vaccinations is proven with a wink and a nod.

The manner in which this was reported is very telling.  For instance, if the vaccine strain of the polio virus was found in a normal child, would the media have made the story into front page news?  Would it even have been reported?  The Washington Post explained that both state and federal officials had informed them of the story.  Misleading titles such as, "Polio Outbreak Occurs Among Amish Families In Minnesota" were then used to manipulate resistant parents with bio-terrorism.

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.  Could it be those Amish 'super genes' at work again?  Society could learn a lot from their example, if we would simply stop poisoning ourselves, and our children on a routine basis.

I think the last paragraph says it all really!

Vaccination issue aside, the Amish are not a good example:  centuries of inbreeding have caused a lot of problems in their community:


So I wish they had picked a different community to study.  The Amish people certainly have their share of problems- life is not a utopia there.  It makes the study and the article questionable.  We need some REAL good studies, not anectdotal evidence.

The Amish people have a very high genetic disorder rate for such a small community of people in comparison to the rest of the nation. They do  not have super genes, they have inbred genes.

Well, since the Amish aren't really ones for being on websites, don't you also think they'd NOT want to report cases of Autism and whatnot, in order to stay away from our way of life? Sorry, just not buying the whole "it skipped a whole group of people" crap. People always need something or someone to blame for the bad stuff in their lives, and food, toxins, environment, etc. are easy targets. I say this as a person on the spectrum, as well as a parent of one, with a nephew who is Autistic as well.

People fail to realize that Autism didn't spike until disposable diapers were invented.

Wanted to share with you all the link to the site this article came from, maybe if you arent convinced, you can read more about it there and ask them questions about this! Hopefully they will have the answers you are curious about!

What does disposable diapers have to with autism????? That makes no sense to me.

a lot of people believe that our continued and constant exposure to chemicals starting from infancy (chemicals in disposable diapers) have a lot to do with rising autism rates.
