STUDY: Lack Of Vaccines Among Many Reasons Amish Rarely Get Cancer

STUDY: Lack Of Vaccines Among Many Reasons Amish Rarely Get Cancer
The case of the Amish is a strange one. The Amish have a lower rate of smokers, but a 2010 study expressing the astoundingly low presence of cancer in the Ohio Amish even admitted that smoking played only a small role in the matter.
Conclusion:
Cancer incidence is low in the Ohio Amish. These data strongly support reduction of cancer incidence by tobacco abstinence but cannot be explained solely on this basis. Understanding these contributions may help to identify additional important factors to target to reduce cancer among the non-Amish.
So then why don’t the Amish suffer from the throes of cancer as much as the rest of the surrounding western world?
For starters, the Amish don’t vaccinate their population. They rarely ever have cases of Autism and cancer. The Amish have refused government intimidation over the matter and have continued to skirt neurological and degenerative disease.
The Amish eat organic foods. These aren’t people who are cruising the middle aisles of the local grocery store. They have farms and organic markets. Their land is protected and unchurned by Monsanto’s poisonous seeding.
Other factors, such as increased physical activity and lower stress lifestyles also contribute to lower rates of cancer, but the core takeaway is without question the lack of vaccines and the lack of processed foods. These are factors that aren’t out of our own control, as pharma might have us all believe. Instead, the Amish offer us great insight into exactly how we can control our own destinies. They show us we don’t have to rely on pharma’s harsh “treatments,” rather, our own lifestyle changes are the cure we seek.

Study – Low cancer incidence rates in Ohio Amish.
RESULTS:
The age-adjusted cancer incidence rate for all cancers among the Amish adults was 60% of the age-adjusted adult rate in Ohio (389.5/10(5) vs. 646.9/10(5); p < 0.0001). The incidence rate for tobacco-related cancers in the Amish was 37% of the rate for Ohio adults (p < 0.0001). The incidence rate for non-tobacco-related cancers in the Amish was 72% of the age-adjusted adult rate in Ohio (p = 0.0001).
CONCLUSION:
Cancer incidence is low in the Ohio Amish. These data strongly support reduction of cancer incidence by tobacco abstinence but cannot be explained solely on this basis. Understanding these contributions may help to identify additional important factors to target to reduce cancer among the non-Amish.
