Flesh Diet

292. The mortality caused by eating meat is not discerned.... Animals are diseased, and by partaking of their flesh we plant the seeds of disease in our own tissues and blood.—Unpublished Testimonies, November 5, 1896.

293. The prevalence of cancers and tumors is largely due to gross living on dead flesh.—Unpublished Testimonies, November 5, 1896.

294. The practice of eating largely of meat is causing diseases of all kinds,—cancers, tumors, scrofula, tuberculosis, and numbers of other like affections.—Unpublished Testimonies, January 11, 1897.

295. The meat is served reeking with fat, because it suits the perverted taste. Both the blood and the fat of animals is consumed as a luxury. But the Lord has given special directions that these should not be eaten. Why?—Because their use would make a diseased current of blood in the human system. Disregard of the Lord's special directions has brought a variety of difficulties and diseases upon human beings.... If they introduce into their system that which cannot make good flesh and blood, they must endure the results of the disregard of God's word.—Unpublished Testimonies, March, 1896.

296. The eating of pork has aroused and strengthened a most deadly humor which was in the system.—Testimonies for the Church 2:94.
