Not this guy again. Obviously there is no new study, just a rehash of Olmsted who didn't conduct a study at all and only tried looking at a small community. By Amish nature, no one would know if any had autism and they probably wouldn't call it autism or gain a diagnosis. They would never be in any county count. Because Amish consist of the same long blood line, they have a high rate of genetic disorders, and many are willing to participate in studies of genetic diseases. A clinic located in Middlefield, Ohio, has been treating special-needs children with inherited or metabolic disorders since May 2002 of the Amish community.
And, many do get vaccines because the Amish, as much as their living is different from mordern people, interact with those modern people and contract germs from them. But many of the Amish have the belief that whatever they 'get' is of God's Will. So they would never play that blame game.

And another thing, aside from the fact there is no new study, it was not a misleading title of some article. Back in the mid 2000's there was 5 confirmed cases of polio in the Amish community in MN. The Amish are not so isolated, either.

This article is a misrepresentation. There is no new Amish study. The man is basing it off of 2005 Olmsted. How gullible does he think people are???!!!

You cant even read correctly. Olmsted claimed to have located only 3, except he never met any of the children personally. One has to ask, if any child actually had any disorder, being the Amish don't seek mordern medicine, how in the world did any ever get a diagnosis of autism??? One also has to ask how an Amish family ever came to adipt a child from China?? Seems far fetched, and more far fetched any Amish family would tell this to some stranger named Dan Olmsted.

Be it as it is, try out this study, you may find it odd the genetics they found, you know, in the Amish who 'don't vaccinate'.

Typical of the Winnipeg dummy. One link that doesn't work, and another to a conspiracy theory/quackery site.
