Dan Olmsted, the inspired journalist who went to the Amish community to check out their autism-prevalence is dead

January 24, 2017

Years ago, US-based journalist Dan Olmsted visited this country’s Amish population in order to report, how the autism epidemic was affecting those societies, that traditionally avoid innoculations and vaccines.
Dan Olmsted found about a handful of children with this diagnosis, and for those he actually discovered, there was a sensible explanation in each case, as for example in one on them, the child having been adopted from the surrounding society.
On Tuesday the American news site Age og Autism reported, that Dan Olmsted is dead.
Maybe journalist Dan Olmsted’s reporting from his voyage to the Amish communities ought to be revisited?
Maybe other reporters ought to travel in Dan Olmsted’s footsteps. What is status quo when it comes to the Amish people and the ongoing autism epidemic in 2017?
Is there anything for the openminded to learn? / UD
