I have noticed that many readers of my site are Christian, some of them born-again, some LDS (Mormon), others different denominations. Many are devout followers of the teachings of Jesus Christ and his apostles. Scripture contains abundant references to the benefits of eating the plants God put on the earth for our benefit and healing. We can add the canonized word of God to the massive and growing body of scientific evidence that a plant-based diet prevents disease and provides an abundant life in harmony with eternal law.
This blog report (to be eventually posted on the GreenSmoothieGirl.com site) mentions a number of scriptures corroborating this, including Biblical references. Some of the scriptures are from the canon of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, additional to the Bible. These books are known as the Book of Mormon and Doctrine and Covenants. Even if you aren’t LDS (Mormon), you may find these ancient texts interesting. They were wise way before their scientific time had arrived! Science has now proven the truthfulness of the counsel in ancient texts.
In Alma 46:40, the prophet Alma records, about 72 B.C., this interesting note: “And there were some who died with fevers, which at some seasons of the year were very frequent in the land–but not so much so with fevers, because of the excellent qualities of the many plants and roots which God had prepared to remove the cause of diseases . . .” Long before Pfizer and GlaxoSmithKline came along, clearly God put whole plant foods on this planet not just to nourish us, but to prevent disease and cure illness!
