Very interesting to use the Amish as a control population. That eliminates chemtrailing as a potential cause also.

There are a lot of things that seem to point to glyphosate (Monsanto's RoundUp) as being the main culprit. I think this is the real problem with GMOs. The plants are all RoundUp Ready, but our human guts are not.

However according to this, they do use pesticides as well as GMO crops.

So I guess it is probably not that. Maybe it is the social stress of a modern lifestyle? Stress hormones cause lots of damage, and our modern lifestyles are more stressful than ever.

Or perhaps it has to do with the drugs used to sedate the mother during childbirth? Or pharmas used by mothers during pregnancy?

The aluminum/fluoride connection maybe? The aluminum link is interesting, it's now in so much stuff, especially cookware. The bulk of pots and pans cheaply (and some not so cheaply) manufactured has a high content of aluminum. Not sure if Amish populations use local water supplies either.

Pharma would be hard to investigate. Some women won't take anything when pregnant, others take over the counter, others take anything. Interesting though, what studies have been conducted to look at that?

Yeah thats interesting about cookware. Teflon is known to cause health issues in certain contexts:

Interesting though, what studies have been conducted to look at that?

I imagine not many, as pharma will generally not fund studies that could limit profits by proving products unsafe. I imagine in the next few decades there will be many pharma drugs uncovered to be unsafe that were previously thought to be safe. It's just like cigarettes.
