Why Don’t The AMISH Get CANCER?
There was a study that got published in the journal Cancer Causes and Control found out that Amish people have no cancer in their population and for that reason are considered to be the healthiest people in America. Thus, researchers from the Ohio State University started a study on these people in order to find out if the cancer rates will be higher to their lack of conventional medical care. According to that research the Amish have lower rates of cancer than other people, thus the researchers wanted to take a closer look at their lifestyle choices and diets to discover why.
Most of these people do not drink nor smoke, are not sexually promiscuous. Researchers believe that these factors play a great role in the limited number of cancer cases. There were other factors which were examined like the amount of physical labor they undertook. Most of them work in farming, construction, and other production jobs which require intense physical activity that is keeping them healthy and in great shape. They work hard in producing crops, build furniture, and structures, producing useful goods that contribute to their health, unlike the rest of the Americans sit in fluorescent-lit cubicles daily.
The Amish people grow and rise all their own food which was another factor examined in the study. In order to get healthy fruits and vegetables, milk, meat, and untainted foods they employ time-tested and organic methods. This is what most of the Americans never get. Their foods are packed with enzymes, vitamins, and nutrients as they are grown and raised in the way they should be, resulting in great health.
Some people may ridicule their lifestyle, but the Amish people are committed to lead simple, clean, and productive life with their local food.
