Chapter 14 – Causes of Disease

The Condition of the Mind

#283. There is another class whose highest aim in life is physical labor. This class do not exercise the mind. Their muscles are exercised, while their brains are robbed of intellectual strength…. This class fall more rapidly if attacked by disease, because the system is not vitalized by the electrical force of the brain to resist disease.—Testimonies for the Church 3:157. {HL 65.6}

#284. That which brings sickness of body and mind to nearly all, is dissatisfied feelings and discontented repinings.—Testimonies for the Church 1:566. {HL 65.7}

#285. Nothing is so fruitful a cause of disease as depression, gloominess, and sadness.—Testimonies for the Church 1:702. {HL 66.1}

Secret Vice

#286. This vice is laying waste the constitution of very many, and preparing them for diseases of almost every description.—A Solemn Appeal, 53. {HL 66.2}

#287. Some of nature’s fine machinery gives way, leaving a heavier task for the remainder to perform, which disorders nature’s fine arrangement, and there is often a sudden breaking down of the constitution; and death is the result.—A Solemn Appeal, 64. {HL 66.3}
