The uninitiated 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 They live in a society that consists of outdated technologies and ideals, at least by contemporary standards.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 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 mainstream 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.

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 their children, 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 people's 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 many health blessings.

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. 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 facts are not cited by the mainstream media, doctors, or the American Medical Association.

On October 14, 2005, the media swung into hysteria after the vaccine-strain of the polio virus was found in the stools of four Amish children. The media declined to mention that it was the chemically-inactivated version, which is only found inside the orally-given vaccine. This means that the source for the outbreak was the vaccine itself. The situation was sensationally exploited to terrorize parents who had been avoiding vaccines.

Creating the Polio Pandemic

The spread of polio was fueled by the allopathic establishment's across-the-board removal of tonsils, which is the only organ that produces polio antibodies. Around the same time, the newly-created F.D.A. began suppressing the use of silver in medicines, which was the only safe substance that was known to kill viruses (like polio). Finally, "the solution" that industry desired, namely a vaccine, was released at the time when the epidemic was naturally ending, so that the vaccine could be given credit. All of this was orchestrated to manipulate the masses into accepting 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 are converting people who might 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 is likely the result of them lacking 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 bioterrorism.

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 writing skills, which is explained 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.

The Vaccine Information War

Pro-vaccination sources often claim that vaccinations are normal in the Amish community, and so is autism. These are lies. While there may be some small Amish groups which vaccinate, and thus have autism; neither is normal. The United Press, in conjunction with Generation Rescue, published a story about the rates of autism in an Amish community in Pennsylvania.

Reporter Dan Olmsted went searching for the autistic Amish. Statistically, there should have been about 130 Amish with autism in the community he examined. Dan discovered 3 cases. The first was an adopted Chinese girl, who had suffered through all of her vaccinations on the same day. The second developed symptoms within 24 hours after getting vaccinated, and there was no information about the third case. The reporter even spoke with the local allopathic doctor, who the Amish sometimes visit whenever herbs and supplements do not suffice (e.g. broken bones). The doctor admitted that he had never seen autism in the Amish community.

Dr. Max Wiznitzer of University Hospitals in Cleveland is an expert witness for the government, and he fights against families who file for compensation with the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program. He made a mistake when he admitted that autism rates in the Amish community are somewhere around 1 in 10,000. The rate for the rest of us is currently about 1 in 50, and growing rapidly. The numbers are actually skewed against the Amish, since a tiny portion of their children are secretly being vaccinated now.

Studies which purportedly disprove the link between autism and vaccinations have all been funded by the pharmaceutical industry. No vaccine has ever undergone any independent, controlled, double-blind studies to determine safety and effectiveness. Seriously.

Philosophical and religious exemptions are available in almost every state. The only states that do not allow exemptions are West Virginia and Mississippi. In those two states, children are sometimes home schooled to avoid vaccinations. In the other 48 states, the public schools cannot legally turn people away if they submit exemption forms, so it is crucial that people learn their rights, and use them.

A public education is considered a basic human right in the United States and most of the Western world. Legal threats and court rulings have forced various school systems into funding home schooling with paid tutors or into allowing unvaccinated students admission. The usual excuse that is provided by the school systems for attempting to remove the educational right from unvaccinated children is that such children would somehow endanger the health of vaccinated children. Of course, no evidence is ever cited because there is none. Their hidden admission is that the vaccinated children have weakened immune systems; for there would be no danger to them if the vaccinations provided them with real protection. Why would the vaccinated children be at risk of dangerous diseases? There are already precedent setting cases that can be used against school boards and their representing attorneys. Most courts would view the ignoring of such precedents as a type of judicial contempt from the opposition, so arm yourself with the knowledge, and let them know that you know. You can beat them, even without an attorney. Hiring an attorney who is beholden to local politics and court protocols may actually hurt your chances of winning.

I grew up in an area surrounded with Amish communities. It is very true that they are a healthy people. Also a very compassionate people who are quick to help their non-Amish neighbors. (Oh, for a return to morals and brotherhood like theirs) An open look at their ways can teach us much about health that is applicable even in our 'modern' world.

Doctors don't do the math, because they are not allowed to. Any doctor who steps too far out of line, will find himself with a revoked medical license. So, not being a "team player" means losing that 12 years of medical school, and never having any hope of getting out of debt. They truly are slaves to the system, even in those cases when they don't consciously realize it. Things are this way by design. It's the policy-making people at the top who are truly evil: they really are. Most doctors couldn't live with themselves if they honestly appraised what they did to people on a regular basis, so they must build walls of denial. They have to keep reminding themselves that they are doing good, or they would break. I'd feel sorry for these people too, if they didn't tend to be so arrogant.

I grew up as a Mennonite and I can testify that the much natural and organic you live less health problems you have.

My Bible says something a little different. Mine reports that a person can expect to be judged for his sins. This means that we have a personal responsibility for the sins that we commit, and that we're not allowed to simply blame our crimes onto others, such as the Government, family, or friends. If God were "in control" (controlling), then there would be no sins; but instead, he gave us the free will to commit sins, such as poisoning our own children, and putting words into his mouth. Perhaps such poisoned children will take the old school eye-for-an-eye part of the Bible to heart, and force-feed their parents pesticides when they are big enough.

The guy made up the date, made it up. He was a doctor, he is in jail now. Vaccines do not cause Autism whatsoever. Mercury can cause autism; people thought that the mercury in the vaccines caused autism in some people, but there is more mercury in a fish than in a vaccine. Also, there has ALWAYS been cancer. Life expectancy has just increased so much that these chronic diseases have manifested themselves as a major cause of death (heart disease followed by cancer, etc...). The reason we are alive so long? Ah yes, modern medicine. We know there are flaws with the system, but bon't be ignorant, vaccines save lives. Ever had small pox? No, its been completely eradicated because of vaccines and modern medicine. HIV will be next.

What is actually disgusting is how you have profited from hurting the people who turned to you for help. Who is "the guy"? What prison is he in? Where exactly is that elusive proof? He made up a date? Was she inflatable? Lots of doctors say vaccines are bad, even at the risk of their professional careers. Here are some examples. (

Vaccines do not cause Autism whatsoever.
Any statement made so gratuitously can be equally gratuitously denied. This is totally unfounded ridiculous deception #2. I'll call these T.U.R.D. for short.

Mercury can cause autism; people thought that the mercury in the vaccines caused autism in some people, but there is more mercury in a fish than in a vaccine.
This is T.U.R.D. #3. Fish are not injected into the bloodstream of infants for one thing. For another, fish provides its own antidotes to its toxins, like most other natural foods do. For instance, in the case of fish, it naturally contains large amounts of selenium which neutralize the effects of heavy metals, allowing them to be flushed from the body. At the same time, the omega oils in the fish shield the body from absorption long enough for the metals to be expelled. Doesn't even "modern medicine" recolonize that now?

Also, there has ALWAYS been cancer.
This is T.U.R.D. #4. Certain specific groups who had exposure to toxins had cancers in ancient history. Two good examples were the Egyptians and the Romans, both of which regularly consumed heavy metals. The epidemic that we know as cancer is indeed a new thing. Cancers were quite rare in ancient times, even amongst those groups who actually had it. It is 1 in 3 now, and growing (like autism). The ancient Jews did not have cancers because they followed God's kosher diet, which prevents cancer 100% of the time. Prior to the heavy metal poisoned Egyptians and Romans, cancer did not exist. I dare you to prove me wrong.

Life expectancy has just increased so much that these chronic diseases have manifested themselves as a major cause of death (heart disease followed by cancer, etc...). The reason we are alive so long? Ah yes, modern medicine.
T.U.R.D. #5. Those "miracles" of "modern" medicine are saving us! Keep telling yourself that, and you may be able to live with yourself.

Actually "modern medicine" is the 3rd top killer in the United States by the A.M.A.'s own statistics due to "drug reactions" caused by properly prescribed drugs. I would love to see the complete number of deaths when this number is combined with actual mistakes and surgical deaths. People only live longer in the industrialized nations. This is because of improved hygiene, clean water distribution systems, and complex sanitary food distribution channels. Kindly take your vaccines and then relocate yourself to the famine regions of Africa if you doubt it.

We know there are flaws with the system, but bon't be ignorant, vaccines save lives.
T.U.R.D. #6. Prove that any vaccine saved a life. Give us just one name, and show us the evidence proving that a vaccine saved him. There is no evidence on your side. In fact, no vaccine was ever given long term, 3rd party, peer-reviewed, double-blind testing for safety and efficacy, because vaccines would fail the most basic requirements for other pharmaceuticals. The testing is done on the population, with regulatory approval for maximum deniability. The rates of illness tend to drop after vaccination campaigns only because the pharmaceutical companies wait to release their vaccines to the public after the epidemics are ending from their natural cycle, so that all of us will attribute the ending of the epidemics with the vaccine distributions. We documented this bait and switch tactic at the end of this article (

Ever had small pox? No, its been completely eradicated because of vaccines and modern medicine.
T.U.R.D. #7. Ever had Bubonic Plague? It ended because of its natural cycle, and as an effect of improved hygiene, just as was the case for small pox.

HIV will be next.
T.U.R.D. #8. We'll be holding our breaths in anticipation of this next "miracle". The extreme death rates of A.I.D.S. patients in the 80's and early 90's was due to the pharmaceuticals -- not the disease. A.I.D.S. isn't so dangerous without those "miracles". It isn't until a diagnosis (medical intervention) that the death rates for cancers, heart disease, A.I.D.S. (and etc.) skyrocket. Women with mammograms get lot's of "early detection", since the mammograms themselves expose the women to cancer causing radiation every year. Please stop giving us so many of these damn "miracles".

We've seen those statistics, and we'll bet either you haven't, or you just ignored them, so you could continue poisoning your patients with a clean conscience. Someday you'll answer to God for it.

BTW, the Amish are healthier than typical americans because they bust their asses everyday doing work, burning calories, not eating Mcdonalds. Those barns don't build themselves but every fat American wants to blame other people for their lazy fatness.
"Lazy fatness"? That's right, blame the victims for what your chemical poisons did to them. That is so typical of your type. That white coat doesn't hide the blood on you, and you do not fool us. You are more guilty of poisoning them than the fast food restaurants. You are worse because you intentionally did it to the people who sought your help, whereas the restaurants do what they do as just a matter of streamlining business practices.

With your attitude and medical religion, I'll bet you are a model of ideal health yourself, which would be our envy. Do you take routine vaccinations yourself, or are you like the 50% of doctors who are too afraid? (

Nevertheless, you finally wrote something that is partially true. Exercise is good, but so is the avoidance of poisons, regardless of whether their source be from foods or vaccines.

Why do people feel the need to be rude!!!!???? I regret having my children vaccinated, because to be honest do we really know what's actually in these vaccines? I believe alot of it is linked into population control!!!
We all have opinions about this and it seems from what I have read so far we are of virtually of the same opinion, but at least it's not written in rudeness!!!
I think if the masses were told the truth there would be uproar, hence the hush hush from the big wigs about it when us who really know the truth, say something about it, they make out that we're crazy!!!! It's the ones who are in the wrong or know that they are wrong who always kick up the biggest fuss!!!! It's always the same!!!!

In second paragraph of the article, at the beginning,
It says (Yes) there have been three Autism cases in the Amish community.

What you don't tell everyone is that the three Amish children who got Autism were all vaccinated. Yes they were, check your facts and report the whole picture and not the fragment detracting into ALIENS whilst opening an article on Autism in the Amish community.
If you want me to read further then write something interesting. The headline was good enough to get my attention until half way down second paragraph, where you lost my attention because the article descended into a childish rant.

Thanks for the great article! I am currently translating an article by a German vaccine researcher who analysed data collected by the German health authorities and found that all the health disorders data were collected for were more prevalent in vaccinated than unvaccinated children. This confirms the findings reported in your article.

I found the article interesting. I have stopped vaccines after my Sister-in-law's kids were diagnosed with autism...yes! KidS. She had a 4 year old and twin girls that were 6 months at the time. The 4 year old was dianosed and soon after one of the 2 twins was diagnosed. That is 2 out of 3. I truley believe that the vaccination did this. I believe that everyone's body responds differently to their exposure to the environment. That is why it shows up in some and not others. Just like some are more apt to get cancer. Their bodies are failing to get rid of the toxins. If we could get this world back to it's pure form, you will find all disease decline and or disappear. If you believe in the creation and early biblical accounts and look into the science (that mainstream science will not talk about), you will find that before the flood our oxygen was 30% pure oxygen. It was like living in a chamber. That is why the bible says we lived to 800-900 years old. The more pure organic and less toxic life we live the longer we will live. The question is: WHO DO YOU WANT TO PAY? THE ORGANIC FARMER OR THE DOCTOR. My source for what I tell you about the oxygen and before the flood is from Dr. Kent Hovind, a Creation Scientist.

Unfortantly we will never know the real harm (illness and death) that vaccination causes. Why? Because the doctors do not report the cause of illness/death, leaving out the fact that a child had a vaccination prior to the illness/death. Even if they did, I am sure the CDC would not report it.

My Naturopathic Doctor went to Med Science and started on the Homeopathic path to medical treatment, because "all they could tell me is to treat the symptoms, NOT what is causing it". We cause it with the vaccinations, food toxins... Why do people wear masks and protective wear when spraying our food, but we are supposted to be OK with ingesting what they spray by eating it? Watch Food Inc and you will realize both medicine and food is controlled by $$$$$$

Thank you for this article and sharing the information. I work with Autistic children, have for 8 years. I have a few questions; Why were they testing the stools of the Amish children? What are the doctors credentials for diagnosing Autism? General practitioners are not who should be diagnosing Autism. They need to leave these people alone,and let them raise their families the way they want.
Have you heard the recent reports of infants that have had the flu shots (you know the ones that now contain the H1N1 vaccine) are experiencing seizures?

Both of my children had reactions to their infant vaccinations. My son went limp and pale after his second DPT shot and we could not rouse him for more than 12 hours. He finally woke up. My younger daughter, I was told, was no more likely to react to her vaccinations than someone unrelated to her brother so they loaded her up and she went stiff on us and no longer wanted to be cuddled and held. Sh has had all kinds of allergy and sensitivity issues her whole life and developed OCD but has never been diagnosed as autistic. BTW, OCD is also on the rise in our children. Yet, the pediatricians continue to push the vaccinations. When my son went alone for his college physical I told him not to allow any additional vaccinations as he did not need them but they loaded him up with every vaccine they could think to give him. SMH ... first do no harm indeed.

Regarding life expectancy, it is very misleading, and I majored in Math, so I know. 150 years ago, infant mortality was much greater, and many more children did not survive past the age of five. So the AVERAGE life span was much lower, because the large number of early deaths took down the average.

If you discount sanitation and the consequent change in child mortality, the life span has only increased by 1-2 years. So called "modern medicine" has not given much of a boost.

I am a proud Grandfather of a beautiful 5 month old Grandson who has had two rounds of vaccines. I pray for him daily.
Our two sons are healthy but the second was ADHD, had a peptic ulcer as an infant and I fear all of that was because of vaccines. He is fine but I am printing all of your articles about vaccines for my other son with his first boy.
My wife is a President of a private school and I hope your sound, common sense reasoning will help her to see what I have been saying all along.
The incidences of childhood cancers in our group of friends is out the roof. One friend just lost his 18 year old son to Hodgkins Lymphona. Another good friend had his 15 year old daughter with a very rare stomach cancer that is in remission because of St. Jude but I can't reconcile myself to believe that these kinds of illnesses befalling such young people is normal. I just don't buy it.
