In a recent study published in the journal “Caner Causes and Control” was found that among The Amish people is almost no case of cancer and that they are the healthiest people in America.
The experts had surveyed their lifestyle and food and it led them to unexpected results. The experts from the University of Ohio began with the study for The Amish people and determined that the cancer rates among the Amish are far lower than in the rest of the American population.
It was found that The Amish people have significantly less chance of developing cancer than the rest of the population, so the experts have decided to examine their lifestyle a little better, nutrition and try to find a connection to this unexpected discovery.
Many of the Amish people do not smoke and do not drink and are not generally promiscuous, which have led the experts to the conclusion that this way of life has an important role in reducing the risk of getting cancer.
Among other factors is the amount of physical work. Many Amish are engaged in agriculture, construction and other jobs that require an enormous amount of physical activity that makes them healthy.
While the rest of America sits in front of the TV all day, the Amish people are working. Experts believe that this contributes to their excellent health.
Another important factor is that The Amish people grow all their own food.
They employ time-tested, organic methods that provide them with healthy fruits, vegetables, milk, meat, and other untainted foods that most Americans never get.
While some may ridicule their secluded lifestyle, the Amish commitment to simple, productive lives and clean, local food is benefiting their health in ways that the rest of America can only dream about.
