Recent studies have shown that Amish children living on farms in northern Indiana are less predisposed to contracting allergies and asthma than Swiss farm children. The Amish, most of who are descendants of the Swiss. Seem to be more protected than the European children of common farms according to the study.
Dr. Mark Holbreich, lead research author, acknowledges that they haven’t yet identified what it is that causes this difference in asthmatic and allergic prevalence distinguished between animal-exposed children on both Swiss farms and Amish farms.
