has been said that rapid temperature changes can cause micro-cracks in teeth, which can promote decay. I do not feel this is a major risk factor. Overall I feel that it is insufficient of a health risk to gain a score.

Why 56 - Cold Drinks (What 54)

M. of H. page 305 – “If food is cold, the vital force of the stomach is drawn upon in order to warm it before digestion can take place. Cold drinks are injurious for the same reason; while the free use of hot drinks is debilitating.”

Comments - The slowing of digestion would be only transitory and there is little harm in slowing digestion. Tissue damage is the main concern and this will be mainly in mouth and oesophagus.

What 55 - Regularity of Eating R 26 G 82 A 139 C 44 J 69 K 69

M. of H. pages 303 – “Regularity in eating is of vital importance. There should be a specified time for each meal. At this time let everyone eat what the system requires and then take nothing more until the next meal.”

1871, Testimonies for the Church Vol 2, page 400 - “Regularity in eating is very important for health of body”

Comment – We have a time clock that regulates our lives, when to sleep and also when to eat. The time clock influences blood sugars and many other metabolic functions and thus this is a true statement. However the only real risk of eating irregularly is overeating or eating poor quality foods. There was little known about the body’s time clock in 1960.

What 56 – Two Meals a Day

G 77 A 134 C 46 J 68 K 68

M. of H. page 304 – “most persons who give the plan a trial will find that two meals a day are better than three.”

Page 321 – “The practice of eating but two meals a day is generally found a benefit to health; yet under some circumstances persons may require a third meal.”

S.G. page 130 – “Many eat three times a day, and again just before going to bed. …. If a third meal be eaten at all, it should be light,”

Page 153 – “Our plain food, eaten twice a day, is enjoyed with a keen relish.”

Comments – As long as there is not excessive food eaten the number of meals does not matter. Even graze feeding seems to be a satisfactory way to eat. The main problem with many meals a day is the tendency to overeat (What 46) and eat poor quality food (What 26).

Score – Unverified

Why 57 – Two Meals (What 56)

M. of H. page 303 – “the stomach should have its work all done, that it, as well as the other organs of the body, may enjoy rest.”

Page 235 – “the overworked organs of digestion may have an opportunity to rest.”

S.G. page 130 – “(Those who have three to four meals a day) In a short time the digestive organs are worn out, for they have had no time to rest. These become miserable dyspeptics, and wonder what has made them so. The cause has brought the sure result. A second meal should never be eaten until the stomach has had time to rest from the labor of digesting the preceding meal.

Comments - There is no need for digestive organs or the liver to rest.

What 57 – Exercise R 27 G 80 C 51 K 59

M. of H. page 305 – “Another serious evil is eating at improper times, as after violent or excessive exercise, when one is much exhausted or heated.”

Page 240 – “To engage in …. violent physical exercise immediately after eating, (is a health hazed).”

1870, Testimonies for the Church Vol 2, page 413 – “Neither study nor violent exercise should be engaged in immediately after a full meal; this would be a violation of the laws of the system.” Comment – The mixing of food and exercise does slow both, but it is not an important health factor.

Score – Unverified

Why 58 - Exercise 1 (What 57)

M. of H. page 305 – “Immediately after eating there is a strong draft upon the nervous energies; and when mind or body is heavily taxed just before or just after eating, digestion is hindered.

Page 240 – To engage in …. violent physical exercise immediately after eating, hinders the work of digestion;”

1870, Testimonies for the Church Vol 2, page 413 – “Immediately after eating there is a strong draft upon the nervous energy. The brain force is called into active exercise to assist the stomach; therefore, when the mind or body is taxed heavily after eating, the process of digestion is hindered. The vitality of the system, which is needed to carry on the work in one direction, is called away and set to work in another.

Comments - It is the diversion of blood to the muscles away from the stomach and digestive organs that slows digestion. This, however, does not cause ill health.

Score – Verified

Why 59 - Exercise 2 (What 57)

M. of H. page 240 – “but a short walk after a meal, with the head erect and the shoulders back, is a great benefit. (for digestion)”

1870, Testimonies for the Church Vol 2, page 413 - Exercise is important to digestion and to a healthy condition of body and mind.”

Comments –Regular exercise enhances peristalsis of the intestines and alleviates constipation.

Score – Verified

What 58 – Sleep R 23 G 78 A 131 C 45 J 70 K 70 M. of H. page 303 – “Another pernicious habit is that of eating just before bedtime.”

S.G. page 130 – “If a third meal be eaten at all, it should be light, and several hours before going to bed.”

Comments –To be physically active following a large meal, rather than going to bed, appears to have some degree of protection against cardio-vascular disease.

Score – Minor (1960 – Unverified)

Why 60 – Sleep – 1 (What 58)

M. of H. page 303 – “The sleep is often disturbed (by eating before going to bed) with unpleasant dreams, and in the morning the person awakes un-refreshed and with little relish for breakfast.”

Don S McMahon

Comments – Sleep research has disproved this theory. What is more important is being regular in time of eating and sleeping. Sleep can be disturbed if unaccustomed to eating before bed and eating unaccustomed high fat food.

Score – Unverified

Why 61 – Sleep – 2 (What 58)

M. of H. page 303 – “As a result of eating late suppers, the digestive process is continued through the sleeping hours. But though the stomach works constantly, its work is not properly accomplished.”

Comment - Digestion is not affected by sleep.

Score – Unverified

What 59 – Anxiety

M. of H. page 305 – “When one is excited, anxious, or hurried, it is better not to eat until rest or relief is found.”

1884, Review and Herald, July 9 – “Those who are excited, anxious, or in a great hurry, would do well not to eat until they have found rest or relief; for the vital powers, already severely taxed, cannot supply the necessary gastric juice.”

Comments – Again this is not a bad health problem, but digestion will be slowed when anxious. The real problem with chronic anxiety is either overeating or under eating.

What 60 – Mental Activity

G 81 C 52 K 84

M. of H. page 240 – “To engage in severe study …. immediately after eating, (is a health hazed)” 1870, Testimonies for the Church Vol 2, page 413 – “Neither study nor violent exercise should be engaged in immediately after a full meal; this would be a violation of the laws of the system.” Comment - Tension can cause a slowing of digestion or changes in appetite, but not mental activity.

Why 62 - Mental Activity (What 60)

M. of H. page 240 – “To engage in severe study …. immediately after eating, hinders the work of digestion; “

1870, Testimonies for the Church Vol 2, page 413 – “Immediately after eating there is a strong draft upon the nervous energy. The brain force is called into active exercise to assist the stomach; therefore, when the mind or body is taxed heavily after eating, the process of digestion is hindered. The vitality of the system, which is needed to carry on the work in one direction, is called away and set to work in another.”

Comment – We often feel sleepy after eating which can effect mental activity, but not the other way round unless it is accompanied by stress.

What 61 - Fluid with Meals G75 A 110 C 62 K 85

M. of H. page 305 – “In fact, the more liquid there is taken with the meals, the more difficult it is for the food to digest;”

Appendix 1

Health & Medical statements found in The Ministry of Healing (M. of H.), 1905 Spiritual Gifts Volume 4 (S. G.), 1864

Comments - Fluid does slow digestion, but it is not a health factor. There is a danger if a lot for fluid is eaten with a meal, that too little food is eaten—but the reverse is also true. Fluid reduces the danger of overeating. I do not think there is enough evidence against drinking with meals to give this a score.

Score – Unverified

Why 63 – Fluid with Meals 1 (What 61)

M. of H. page 305 – “for the liquid must be absorbed before digestion can begin.” 1884, Review and Herald, July 29, – “for the liquid must first be absorbed.”

Comments - This may be true, but it is not a health risk as fluid is rapidly absorbed from the stomach.

Score – Verified

Why 64 – Fluid with Meals 2 (What 61)

M. of H. page 301 – “But soft or liquid foods are less wholesome than dry foods, which require thorough mastication.”

Comments - The amount of water in a food makes no difference to the nutritional value of the food. The extra chewing of dried foods does promote saliva production, but this does not compromise digestion.

Score – Unverified

What 62 - Mastication R 31 G 51 A 104 C 39 K 71

M. of H. page 305 – “Food should be eaten slowly and should be thoroughly masticated.”

1883, Review and Herald, May 8 – “They require thorough mastication, which is a benefit both to the teeth and to the stomach.”

Comments - It is not a vital health risk, but it does help in controlling the amount of intake.

Score – Minor

Why 65 – Mastication (What 62)

M. of H. page 305 – “This is necessary in order that the saliva may be properly mixed with the food and the digestive fluids be called into action.”

Comment - This is a true statement, but not a health issue unless it is taken to an extreme.

What 63 – Under Cooking

(G 53) (A 123)

M. of H. page 302 – “Scanty, ill-cooked food (causes death)”

1868 Testimonies for the Church Vol 1, page 682 – “Scanty, impoverished, ill-cooked food is (not healthy).”

Comments – To preserve the vitamins, some foods should not be heavily cooked. On the other hand, many vegetables and grains are more digestible if well cooked. It is now known that a number of phytochemicals require cooking for activation. This applies to carrots and tomatoes. However what is far more important, especially last century and in third world countries today, is that cooking is essential for protecting against food poisoning.

Score – Minor

Why 66 - Under Cooking (What 63)

M. of H. page 302 – “Scanty, ill-cooked food depraves the blood by weakening the blood-making organs. It deranges the system and brings on disease, with its accompaniment of irritable nerves and
