Not too long ago, the medical world saw no real connection between what a person ate and his or her health. Today there are an abundance of studies which confirm the relation between what we eat and chronic illness.

This information, though it was generally ignored, has actually been around for thousands of years.

In the Bible, God has said, "Ye shall not eat any thing with the blood" (Leviticus 19:26)

Only be sure that thou eat not the blood: for the blood is the life; and thou mayest not eat the life with the flesh. (Deuteronomy 12:23)

And yet it is the blood which gives flesh food (meat) its pleasurable taste for those who enjoy it. One Christian writer who wrote inspired commentaries, over 100 years ago, about health gave a warning about the dangers of this practice in these words...

"Cancers, tumors, and all inflammatory diseases are largely caused by meat eating." {HL 183.2}

Notice what science says today, in the 21st century, regarding meat eating confirming the truthfulness of the Bible advice and the statement of the Christian author:

High meat and fat diet increases risk of developing skin cancer.(Clinical digest)(Brief article). Nursing Standard 21.45 (July 18, 2007): p17(1). (267 words)

High meat intake linked to cancer.(News). The Journal of Chinese Medicine 87 (June 2008): p64(1). (194 words)

CUT meat intake and reduce kidney cancer risk.(CANCER NEWBRIEFS). Health News 13.7 (July 2007): p7(1). (141 words)

More meat, more cancer risk.(News & Notes)(Brief article). Clinician Reviews 16.9 (Sept 2006): p69(1). (119 words)

Meat and fat intake as risk factors for pancreatic cancer: the Multiethnic Cohort Study.(Author Abstract). Journal of the National Cancer Institute 97.19 (Oct 5, 2005): p1458(8).

21st century science is just now starting to catch up with the words of a loving Creator, written thousands of years ago in a book called the Bible, which gave instructions that would prove to be life-saving to anyone when put into practice.

We have grown accustomed to believing that God "calls people home" when they die of disease. The evidence points to the contrary; our heavenly Father desires that human beings would live as long as possible, doing the most good that is possible to the most people as possible. Although God has ultimate authority over life and death, He is not responsible for death by disease when human beings are making choices which lead to disease.

Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth. (3 John 2)

Jesus Christ Himself did more healing than teachng when He was upon this earth and has our best interest at heart. To this end He has provided "herbs for the service of man" (Psalms 104:14)

According to the Bible, (Revelation 18:23), in the last days, many people will be deceived and poisoned by a modern form of sorcery called drug medication.

Drugs never cure. They only change the form and the location of the disease. Herbs when used with understanding, provide a safe and powerful alternative to poisonous drug therapy. Here is a continuation of a descriptive list of herbal properties in alphabetical order.
