 Simple Diet

"Behold I have given you every herb yielding seed...
And every tree in which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed;
to you is shall be for meat."
 Genesis 1:29
The American Dietetic Association, in its position paper on Vegetarian Diet (Journal of ADA, November 1997, Volume 97, Number 11) states t hat "Appropriately planned vegetarian diets are4 healthful, are nutritionally adequate, and provide health benefits in the prevention and treatment of certain diseases."
Adam and Eve lived in a garden. They subsisted on fruits, nuts, and grains. When they left the garden, vegetables were added. Scientists are discovering that those very foods are loaded, not only with the vitamins and nutrients we are familiar with, but they include a substance called fiber that is ONLY found in plant foods. And they are now naming other substances called phytochemicals ONLY found in plant foods whose primary known function is to enable the body to resist disease. The chronic lifestyle diseases that so many people are suffering and dying from today are especially benefited. Samuel L. DeShay, MD,a physician in the Maryland/Washington, DC area, was a missionary to Africa for some 23 years. He and his wife Bernice, a registered nurse, cared for t his population, who subsists primarily on plant foods. During their tenure there, not ONE of the native patients they saw had heart disease.  The one case of heart disease that they did see was in a missionary European descent. A plant based diet:
  1.  Is nutritionally sound.
  2. Is economical
  3. Disease preventing/health promoting
  4. Increase energy
  5. Improves overall physical appearance
  6. Increases permanent weight loss
  7. Improves gastrointestinal function
  8. Reduces levels of serum cholesterol and triglycerides
  9. Reduces blood pressure in those with hypertension
  10. Reduces risk of death from heart disease
  11. Reduces risk of kidney/gall bladder disease
  12. Reduces insulin requirements
  13. Reduces risk of ALL cancers
  14. Reduces female disorders
  15. Reduce ARTHRITIS pain
  16. Improves sexual function
  17. Reduces desire for stimulants like alcohol and tobacco and other drugs
  18. Was God's original plan- Genesis 1:29
  19. Is what is on heaven's menu ~ Revelation 21:4, 22:2
