    They don’t eat McDonalds! Simple.

  2. Interesting…but I can’t help but wonder if by growing their own food helps cut down on all the toxins they consume..I wonder if they use pesticides??

  3. Well duh.. They don’t eat processed foods. Only whole, natural foods.

  4. I’m stunned that people can’t see what is right under their noses. No food is processed in a factory, nothing added and nothing taken away. They lead clean healthy lives with plenty of physical work. No sitting idle in front of a TV for several hours a day. No pesticides no chemical fertilisers, only good old fashioned compost and companion planting.

    Simple, they don’t eat as much processed foods as we do. They normally live far from civilization so they’re far from pollution. Women also breastfeed their children from the day they’re born.

  6. I know an Amish girl with cancer. Non-hodgkins Lymphoma. They live near the farms of us “English” and we use our pesticides and contaminate the ground water and soil. Even they can’t stay away from it now. Maybe not as prevalent; but it happens.

  7. All humans can get cancer, the amish just don’t talk about it!!

  8. they say it’s all to do with how you eat, work and play, ….what we put in our gobs!

    They have a lower rate of lung cancer and those of the mouth and throat because they don’t smoke. Oddly they have a higher rate of breast cancer according to a study in PUBMED

  11. the amish life style is much cleaner than that of the general US population.

  12. I believe they don’t use anything electrical so there are no waves going through the air or whatever gets in it’s way including our bodies.

  13. While I agree with most of the findings I wonder also about another factor in Amish life and not having high cancer rates. They have a limited gene pool and if cancers thought to have genetic components are not found within their genes it wouldn’t be surprising to find lower rates.

    But they are certainly the most kindess

    Because they drink cow’s milk…..actually meant for a baby cow

    Can you link to peer-reviewed science that supports this? Many readers do not understand the difference between correlation and causation, or between science and pseudoscience. Some theories actually suggest increased longevity means we outlive the chronic cardiac (etc) diseases that used to kill humans before the age most cancers are diagnosed…. #marchforscience

    They might not have cancer but they have a whole host of other illnesses from inbreeding including an alarming rate of mentally challenged and mentally disabled kids, including a high instance of CHILDHOOD cancer. Plus they aren’t as squeaky clean as everyone thinks. For a long time the best marijuana was sold by the Warlocks bike gang…but grown by the innocent Amish. Don’t be fooled. Every cop knows they abuse their kids, their women, and their animals.
