Healthful Living, Page 173

713. Especially in wet seasons the sleeping-rooms become damp, and those who sleep in the beds are troubled with rheumatism, neuralgia, and lung complaints, which generally end in consumption.—How to Live, 64.

Poor Ventilation

714. Many families suffer from sore throat, lung diseases, and liver complaints, brought upon them by their own course of action.... They keep their windows and doors closed, fearing they will take cold if there is a crevice to let in the air. They breathe the same air over and over, until it becomes impregnated with the poisonous impurities and waste matter thrown off from their bodies, through the lungs and the pores of the skin.—How to Live, 63.

715. For invalids who have feeble lungs, nothing can be worse than an overheated atmosphere.—Testimonies for the Church 2:527.

716. The heated, oppressed atmosphere, deprived of vitality, benumbs the sensitive brain. The lungs contract, the liver is inactive.—Testimonies for the Church 1:702.

Improper Breathing

717. Stomach, liver, lungs, and brain are suffering for want of deep, full inspirations of air, which would electrify the blood and impart to it a bright, lively color, and which alone can keep it pure, and give tone and vigor to every part of the living machinery.—Testimonies for the Church 2:67.

Improper Use of the Voice

718. Speaking from the throat, letting the words come out from the upper extremity of the vocal organs, all the time fretting and irritating them, is not the best way to preserve health or to increase the efficiency of these organs.—Testimonies for the Church 2:616.
