One of the gifts I gave my wife for Christmas was authentic Amish made candles and pot holders.  I was going to get her a quilt but they cost between $350 and $500, wow !

While I was in the real Western Pennsylvania Amish store, I noticed that it was so cold, I worried that the young Amish lady was going to get sick. The fact is, I was more likely to catch a cold than her.

Did you know that the Amish are hardly diagnosed with cancer? They have very little autism, and basically, rarely get sick. What is so different about there lifestyle than the rest of us? LA Healthy Living took a look at some of the things they are doing different.
