In the lush, green pastures of Pennsylvania Dutch country, where life revolves around the one-room schoolhouse, the farm and the church, and locals speak a distinctive German dialect, the strange blue lights beam from a handful of homes. To the Amish and Mennonites they mean one thing — the presence of an extraordinarily rare disease that seems to cruelly target their communities, forcing afflicted children to spend 10 to 12 hours a day, undressed, under lights. The children suffer from a genetic disorder that causes high levels of a toxin called bilirubin to build up in their bodies, resulting in severe jaundice that, if untreated, causes brain damage and death. http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20070520/ap_on_he_me/blue_light_kids;_ylt=Av2yIyOf.jVw1RljbaWsZyXMWM0F So sad! I have never heard of this before and we have family who live in mennonite areas.
