Tumors and Cancer, Cancer Prevention[Kellogg] —Items marked Kellogg in brackets are natural healing prescriptions by J.H.Kellogg, M.D., medical director of the famous Battle Creek Sanitarium from 1876 to 1942."The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest his patients inthe care of the human frame, in diet, and in the cause and prevention ofdisease." —Thomas Edison

Section 0Principles of HealthPart 1IntroductionWe have included the statements of a number of different natural healing pioneers in this volume. Hereare insightful comments from the writings of Ellen G. White, who had a profound understanding of theorigin and transmission of pathological problems."The transgression of physical law is the transgression of God's law. Our Creator is Jesus Christ. He isthe author of our being. He has created the human structure. He is the author of the physical laws, as Heis the author of the moral law. And the human being who is careless and reckless of the habits andpractices that concern his physical life and health, sins against God."—Letter, May 19, 1897."God's law is written by His own finger upon every nerve, every muscle, every faculty which has beenentrusted to man."—Letter, August 30, 1896."Health, strength, and happiness depend upon immutable laws; but these laws cannot be obeyed wherethere is no anxiety to become acquainted with them."—Healthful Living, 18."The Lord has made it a part of His plan that man's reaping shall be according to his sowing."—Letter,May 19, 1897."To make plain natural law, and urge the obedience of it, is the work that accompanies the third angel'smessage to prepare a people for the coming of the Lord."—3 Testimonies, 161 [CDF, 69]."There are many ways of practicing the healing art, but there is only one way that Heaven approves.God's remedies are the simple agencies of nature, that will not tax or debilitate the system through theirpowerful properties. Pure air and water, cleanliness, a proper diet, purity of life, and a firm trust in Godare remedies for the want of which thousands are dying; yet these remedies are going out of datebecause their skillful use requires work that the people do not appreciate."—5 Testimonies, 443."It is the duty of every human being, for his own sake and for the sake of humanity, to inform himself orherself in regard to the laws of organic life, and conscientiously to obey them . . It is the duty of everyperson to become intelligent in regard to disease and its causes."—Letter, December 4, 1896."God has formed laws to govern every part of our constitutions, and these laws which He has placed in

our being are divine, and for every transgression there is a fixed penalty, which sooner or later must berealized."—Healthful Living, 20."Our first duty, one which we owe to God, to ourselves, and to our fellow men, is to obey the laws ofGod, which include the laws of health."—3 Testimonies, 164."The laws governing the physical nature are as truly divine in their origin and character as the law of theTen Commandments. Man is fearfully and wonderfully made; for Jehovah has inscribed His law by Hisown mighty hand on every part of the human body."—Letter, August 5, 1896." Have I not a right to do as I please with my own body?' —No, you have no moral right, because youare violating the laws of life and health which God has given you. You are the Lord's property,—His bycreation and His by redemption. Every human being is under obligation to preserve the living machinerythat is so fearfully and wonderfully made."—Letter, May 19, 1897."Our very bodies are not our own, to treat as we please, to cripple by habits that lead to decay, making itimpossible to render to God perfect service. Our lives and all our faculties belong to Him. He is caringfor us every moment; He keeps the living machinery in action. If we were left to run it for one moment,we should die. We are absolutely dependent upon God."—Letter, October 12, 1896."The health should be as sacredly guarded as the character."—Christian Temperance, 82."Proportionally as nature's laws are transgressed, mind and soul become enfeebled . . Physical sufferingof every type is seen . . Suffering must follow this course of action. The vital force of the system cannotbear up under the tax placed upon it, and it finally breaks down."—Letter, August 30, 1896."Sickness is caused by violating the laws of health; it is the result of violating nature's laws."—3Testimonies, 164."Health is a great treasure. It is the richest possession that mortals can have. Wealth, honor, or learningis dearly purchased, if it be at the loss of the vigor of health. None of these attainments can securehappiness if health is wanting."—Christian Education, 35."That time is well spent which is directed to the establishment and preservation of sound physical andmental health . . It is easy to lose health, but it is difficult to regain it."—Review, No. 39, 1884."Perfect health depends on perfect circulation."—2 Testimonies, 531."Many have inquired of me, What course shall I take to best preserve my health?' My answer is, Ceaseto transgress the laws of your being; cease to gratify a depraved appetite, eat simple food, dresshealthfully, which will require modest simplicity, work healthfully, and you will not be sick."—Counselson Health, 37.

"An aimless life is a living death. The mind should dwell upon themes relating to our eternal interests.This will be conducive to health of body and mind."—Review, No. 31, 1884."God has pledged Himself to keep this living machinery in healthful action, if the human agent will obeyHis laws and cooperate with God."—Letter, January 11, 1897."Let it ever be kept before the mind that the great object of hygienic reform is to secure the highestpossible development of mind and soul and body."—Christian Temperance, 120."Nature will restore their vigor and strength in their sleeping hours, if her laws are notviolated."—Solemn Appeal, 16."Close confinement indoors makes women pale and feeble, and results in premature death."—HealthfulLiving, 61."Indulging in eating too frequently, and in too large quantities, overtaxes the digestive organs, andproduces a feverish state of the system. The blood becomes impure, and then diseases of various kindsoccur."—Spiritual Gifts, Vol. 4, 133."The effects produced by living in close, ill-ventilated rooms are these: . . The mind becomes depressedand gloomy, while the whole system is enervated; and fevers and other acute diseases are liable to begenerated . . The system is peculiarly sensitive to the influence of cold. A slight exposure producesserious diseases."—1 Testimonies, 702."What influence does overeating have upon the stomach? —It becomes debilitated, the digestive organsare weakened, and disease, with all its train of evils, is brought on as a result."—2 Testimonies, 364."The free use of sugar in any form tends to clog the system, and is not infrequently a cause ofdisease."—Counsels on Health, 154."The liability to take disease is increased tenfold by meat eating."—2 Testimonies, 64."Rich and complicated mixtures of food are health destroying. Highly seasoned meats and rich pastryare wearing out the digestive organs."—Letter, November 5, 1896."Drugging should be forever abandoned; for while it does not cure any malady, it enfeebles the system,making it more susceptible to disease."—5 Testimonies, 311."A neglect of cleanliness will induce disease."—How to Live, Chapter 4, 61.

"Rooms that are not exposed to light and air become damp . . Various diseases have been brought on bysleeping in these rooms."—How to Live, 243."Dwellings, if possible, should be built upon high and dry ground. If a house be built where water settlesaround it, remaining for a time and then drying away, a poisonous miasma arises, and fever and ague,sore throat, lung diseases, and fevers will be the result."—How to Live, 246."If the clothing worn is not often washed, it becomes filthy with impurities which are thrown off fromthe body by sensible and insensible perspiration . . The pores of the skin absorb again the waste matterthrown off."—How to Live, 242."When we do all we can on our part to have health, then may we expect that blessed results will follow,and we can ask God in faith to bless our efforts for the preservation of health."—How to Live, 246.

Section 0Principles of HealthPart 2Maintaining HealthWhat are the basic principles of right living, to ensure the best health you can have with the limitationsimposed by the body you have?Here are 120 principles of healthful living. Many more could be mentioned:BASIC PRINCIPLES OF HEALTH1 - Regularity in meals. Do not eat them early or late, but maintain a regular schedule. Your stomach isused to eating at certain times each day.2 - Moderation. Only eat as much as you need. Never overeat. Only eat to satisfy hunger, and then stop.3 - Take small bites. Only put a small amount in your mouth at a time. You will chew and salivate itbetter, and tend to eat less at that meal.4 - Relax and eat slowly. If you are too rushed to eat, then do not eat. Do not be hurried, anxious,worried, fatigued, or angry.5 - Chew your food well. You will derive far more energy out of less food, if you do this.6 - Do not eat too many things at a meal. Three or four items (plus a little salt, oil, etc.) are all you need.7 - Avoid complicated mixtures. Say no to the gravies, vegetable loaves, gluten foods, and all the rest.Keep your meal simple.8 - Avoid peculiar additives, such as vinegar, monosodium glutamate, etc., which only upset yourstomach and slow digestion.

9 - Vary your diet from meal to meal. If you ate oatmeal this morning, try rye or wheat tomorrow.10 - The food should be palatable. But if it is good food, this should not be hard to do.11 - Never eat anything prepared in aluminum. Never drink water or juice out of an aluminum container.Alzheimer's is worth avoiding.12 - Aside from fresh, raw, juices or the green drink, drink all your liquids (water) between meals, notwith your meals.13 - As a rule, eat your fruits at one meal and vegetables at another. Acid fruits (such as citrus) can beeaten with either.14 - Greens have more compacted vitamins and minerals than other type of food. They only lack vitaminD, which the body can get from sunlight. But they do not have adequate amounts of trace minerals.15 - Nova Scotia dulse and Norwegian kelp (two types of seaweed) are the only rich source of traceminerals.16 - Blackstrap molasses is the only very rich source of iron. It is also a very rich source of choline andinositol, the two B vitamins used in the largest quantities.17 - The best pattern is to rest before the meal, and walk around after it, not vice versa.FRUITS1 - The more natural, the better. Raw fruits and vegetables are better than cooked ones, although somefind that a little cooking is necessary. Store-bought canned goods are even less nutritious.2 - Wash the fruit before eating it.3 - Do not eat melons, cantaloupes, and watermelons with other foods; eat them alone.4 - Always soak dried fruit (prunes, apricots, etc.) before eating them.5 - Never eat sulphured fruit. It may be golden in color, but the sulphur is not good inside of you.

VEGETABLES1 - The best is fresh, raw, vegetable juice, made from carrots, with some beets, and possibly somecelery. This is made in a vegetable juicing machine. It is one of the most valuable appliances you canpurchase. Use it every day. The juice is best drunk fresh, within a couple minutes of making it. But,when you know you will be away from home that day, make it in the morning and drink it later as partof a sack lunch.2 - Also good is the "green drink." This is pineapple juice with some greens whizzed in and is made in afood blender.3 - Some people's digestive systems cannot tolerate a diet of totally raw vegetables. Each must do thatwhich works best for him.4 - Eat largely of raw vegetables, with possibly some steamed. A good way to cook vegetables is to keeprecords on the amount of water used and the time it takes to cook the vegetables, so all the water is gone.For example, broccoli can be lightly cooked for 15 minutes or softer in 30. Find how much water isrequired to do this, and only have a very small amount of water left in the pan at the end of that time.5 - Never pour off the vegetable water! Make it part of the meal. For this reason, prepare the food so thatvery little of the water remains (not over an eighth of a cup) when the cooking is finished. Then drinkthat water during the meal. Other than the cooking water and a glass of fresh juice, drink no other liquidswith the meal.6 - Beets, potatoes, and squash are excellent foods. Cut out the growing eyes of the white potatoes, butotherwise do not peel them! The outer half inch of the white potato is rich in potassium and is the bestpart.7 - All the greens are outstanding, but avoid too much spinach; it is higher in oxalic acid. Enjoy broccoli,Brussel sprouts, celery, kale, collards, beet greens, turnip greens, mustard greens, and some lettuce. Thedeeper the greenness, the more vitamins and minerals it has. (By the way, never eat rhubarb; it is terriblyhigh in oxalic acid which leaches calcium from your bones.)8 - Fiber is very important in the diet, for the bowels and the arteries. It can protect you from intestinalproblems and heart disease. Oat bran is the best, but whole grains and other vegetable and fruit roughageis very helpful.

GRAINS1 - Only eat whole grains. This includes whole-grain cereals and breads. Never eat processed grains,such as white-flour products.2 - If you can eat wheat (many cannot), make zwieback of your bread. Place the slices in the oven andtoast them until firm, but not rock-hard. This dextrinizes the starch and renders it more digestible.3 - Avoid toasted wheat germ, for the oils in it will be rancid. Raw wheat germ should be stored in therefrigerator at the health food store and in your own refrigerator, when you arrive home. It should smellvery fresh.4 - Oats is one of the best grains. Rye, millet, and buckwheat are also. If you are out on the road andwant to have a grain with you which is easily obtained, can be eaten as it is, and is very nourishing, eatCheerios. Make sure it was recently purchased. Many people are allergic to wheat and products madewith wheat.5 - You are better off having a varied grain diet rather than just rice. Yet rice is a very good food. Makesure it is unpolished (brown rice).6 - Chew each bite of grain products very well before swallowing. Digestion of starches begins in themouth.NUTS AND SEEDS1 - The nuts and seeds you eat should be fresh. Rancid oil and decaying protein are not good for you.2 - Nuts, seeds, nut butters, seed butters, and peanut butter are very rich in protein and should only beeaten sparingly. Chew these foods very well. This breaks the food down so the amino acids will bebetter processed by the stomach acid.3 - Most commercial peanut butter has the peanut oil removed, and cheap oils in its place. These oils aregenerally hydrogenated, and thus even more dangerous. Never use peanut butter which does not have

floating oil on the top and does not smell fresh.FATSAccording to your body's needs, use little or no added oil. But you do need vitamin F (the essentialunsaturated fatty acids). The best sources are flaxseed oil and wheat germ oil; second-best are sunflowerseed oil, soy oil, and corn oil. Never use cottonseed oil. Safflower oil is not as good as some believe.SWEETENING1 - For your sweetening, only use fresh fruit, dried fruit, a little honey, or blackstrap molasses.2 - If you want the best, eat a small amount of blackstrap at the end of your meal. It will fill your sweettooth, is the richest natural source of iron, and one of the richest in calcium and several important Bvitamins.OTHER NUTRIENTS1 - Salt. Some say that all the salt you need is in the food, but that may or may not be true. You mayneed to add a little salt, but do not add very much. The best way is to put no salt in the cooking; then adda slight amount of salt to the food at the table. Pour a little into the palm of your hand and sprinkle itwhere you want it. In this way you will get the exact small amount you need, and no more.2 - The type of salt to use: Regular store-bought, free-flowing salt has aluminum in it. If you cannot dobetter, buy iodized salt at the store (never non-iodized). Better yet, buy a non-free-flowing salt. It willcake somewhat (salt attra
