Autism in the Amish—Ain’t No Such Thing

“…it was stunning that Julia Inion, the first autistic Amish person I could find, turned out to be adopted -- from another country, no less. It also was surprising that Stacey-jean launched unbidden into vaccines, because the Amish have a religious exemption from vaccination and presumably would not have given it much thought.”
You read it right—the closed Amish society, which does not vaccinate their children, has virtually no cases of infantile autism. Check it out: Part 1 The Age of Autism: The Amish anomaly; Part 2 The Age of Autism: Julia

Thanks to the NVIC (National Vaccine Information Center) for keeping us aware and informed!
