Chapter 14 – Causes of Disease

Stimulants

#273. A tendency to disease of various kinds, as dropsy, liver complaint, trembling nerves, and a determination of the blood to the head, results from a habitual use of sour cider. By its use, many bring upon themselves permanent disease. Some die of consumption, or fall under the power of apoplexy from this cause alone. Some suffer from dyspepsia. Every vital function refuses to act, and the physicians tell them that they have liver complaint.—The Review and Herald, March 25, 1884. {HL 64.1}

Improper Clothing

#274. The fashionable style of woman’s dress is one of the greatest causes of all these terrible diseases.—The Health Reformer, April 1, 1872. {HL 64.2}

#275. More die as the result of following fashion than from all other causes.—The Health Reformer, November 1, 1870. {HL 64.3}

#276. Women especially are the victims of various maladies which might be lessened, if not entirely prevented, by right habits of life. Half their sufferings may be attributed to their manner of dress, and the insane desire to conform to the fashions of the world.—The Health Reformer, February 1, 1877. {HL 64.4}

#277. In order to follow the fashions, mothers dress their children with limbs nearly naked; and the blood is chilled back from its natural course and thrown upon the internal organs, breaking up the circulation and producing disease.—Testimonies for the Church 2:531. {HL 64.5}
