HEALTHFUL LIVING

Chapter 14 – Causes of Disease

Improper Diet

#258. The time women devote to studying how to prepare food in a manner to suit the perverted appetite is worse than lost; … for they are only learning the most successful way to tear down and debase the physical, mental, and moral faculties by gluttony. Then, as a natural result, comes sickness.—The Health Reformer, October 1, 1866. {HL 61.5}

#259. It is the wrong habit of indulgence of appetite, and the careless, reckless inattention to the proper care of the body, that tells upon the people. Habits of cleanliness, and care in regard to that which is introduced into the mouth, should be observed.—Unpublished Testimonies, July 10, 1896.  {HL 62.1}

Overeating

#260. What influence does overeating have upon the stomach?—It becomes debilitated, the digestive organs are weakened, and disease, with all its train of evils, is brought on as the result.—Testimonies for the Church 2:364.  {HL 62.2}

#261. And the dyspeptic—what has made him dyspeptic is taking this course. Instead of observing regularity, he has let appetite control him, and has eaten between meals.—Testimonies for the Church 2:374.  {HL 62.3}

#262. They closely apply their minds to books, and eat the allowance of laboring men…. The liver becomes burdened, and unable to throw off the impurities of the blood, and sickness is the result.—Testimonies for the Church 3:490.  {HL 62.4}
