A journal named Cancer Causes and Control recently published a study saying that Amish people are not affected with cancer. They are considered as the most healthy people in America.

Ohio State University researchers conducted a study on the Amish population in order to see whether rates of cancer would be higher due to lack of conventional medical care. The results shocked them:

The Amish were found to have much lower rates of cancer than the rest of the population, so researchers decided to look more closely at their lifestyle choices and diets to find out why.

Natural news reports:

People of Amish do not drink or smoke. They are typically not sexual. This made researchers believe that the lifestyle of Amish people play a key role in the limited number of cancer cases.

Other factors examined include the high amount of physical labor undertaken by the Amish. They work in construction, farming, and other production jobs that require intense physical activity. It makes them more healthier.

While the rest of America sits in fluorescent-lit cubicles all day, the Amish work hard to produce crops, build furniture and structures, and produce useful goods, which researchers recognize contributes to their excellent health.

Another important factor not specifically examined in the study is that the Amish people grow their food by their own. They follow simple methods that made them eat healthy fruits, vegetables, milk, meat, and other untainted foods.

Amish food is rich is living enzymes, vitamins and nutrients. It is grown with high care that results in improved health.

Amish people’s commitment to simple, productive lives and clean, local food is amazing in many ways where as rest of Americans do not get.

Lifestyle of sitting in the offices, eating processed and genetically modified junk food and following prescription medications, it became clear that our life style is the major reason behind many diseases.
