The mind becomes depressed and gloomy, while the whole system is enervated; and fevers and other acute diseases are liable to be generated.... The system is peculiarly sensitive to the influence of cold. A slight exposure produces serious diseases.—Testimonies for the Church 1:702.

Imperfect Breathing

255. Stomach, liver, lungs, and brain are suffering for want of deep, full inspirations of air.—Testimonies for the Church 2:67.
