    Comment on Do Amish vaccinate their children? (December 23rd, 2013 at 09:02)

    This article might seem nice but it’s not remotely true. I’m from rural Pennsylvnaia with huge Amish community nearby. My mom worked with the USDA for a while and she said the Amish have some of the worst code violations because they use tons and tons of chemicals in their food production. Nothing they do is “natural” or “organic” in terms of what goes into their food (they’re inspected for the food they produce, package and sell). Also there is no record keeping of autism in the Amish community. They don’t go to modern doctors so their children don’t get diagnosed. That said, though they avoid doctors for most ailments, many of their children DO get vaccinated.
    Also, as was mentioned above in the comments, they shop at Walmart and modern grocery stores. They often live without electricity in their homes (not true in their factory style farms), so preserved junk food is really common.
    They DO lead simplier lives, and seem very much at peace and happy. However, they don’t live any longer, and sometimes shorter lives, because of the hard labor and lack of medical care

      Hanna, I’m not sure what you mean by your first line about this article being “not remotely true”. The gist of the article here is that Amish do vaccinate but not at the same rate the general public does, for a number of reasons, and is supported by a number of sources.

      Your comment is interesting but seems to be about a variety of topics, many of which are not addressed here. Is it possible your comment was intended for a different article?

    Comment on Vaccinations... (March 11th, 2015 at 17:28)


    Although Im not 100% Anti-vaccination like many of the Amish, and for some of the same reasons of the Amish, I dont think babies should be vaccinated and I REALLY dont think they should be getting the mega-doses the CDC pushes, especially as infants.

    I believe that if you want to vaccinated your children early, that is your own business, but if you DONT wish to subject their fragile little bodies with mercury & other poisons early on, you shouldnt be guilted or bullied into it. Personally, I think THAT is criminal.

    The CDC and drug companies know that vaccines have caused Autism and other medical problems including deafness. (I know from personal experience both cases, several times over).
    Popular “information” claims that its not so but it is. Legally you can not sue a drug company for these calamities however there are funds available from the drug manufacturers to “help” families that have been ill affected by them if you can prove the decline took place after an immunization.

    If immunizations work so great, then why do people who have had their children immunized (and the CDC) fear that ill children who havent had the shots will affect them? Dont those immunizations keep them from getting the illness? Just like the flu shot keeps us all from getting the flu.. right?

    Amish Conscientious Objectors

    I’ve worked with Plain People in three states, setting up natural health clinics so, in part, they could get health services without vaxx pressure, as they feared “offering their children to Moloch” — risking vaccine adverse reactions.
