The journal Cancer Causes and Control published the conclusions of a recent study, which showed that Amish people don’t develop cancer, being the healthiest people in America. Researchers studied their diet and lifestyle and the discoveries they made are absolutely astonishing.

The main purpose of the study made by the experts from the Ohio University was to find whether Amish peoples’ lack of conventional medicine increases the risk of developing cancer. Actually it was revealed that Amish have significantly lower chances to develop cancer when compared to the rest of the population! This being found, researchers decided to study their lifestyle further trying to discover a link between their lifestyle and these unexpected findings.
Here is what researchers have found:
- Most Amish people avoid smoking and alcohol drinking.
- They practice a lot physical work, which is very important. Most Amish people are involved in agriculture, construction and other works which require physical activity which keeps them healthy. Besides, they don’t sit in front of the TV or computer.
