“We have been given the work of advancing health reform. The Lord desires His people to be in harmony with one another…”(cd 38.2)

"The question of health reform is not agitated as it must and will be...."{cd 304.1}

“The light god has given on health reform is for our salvation and the salvation of the world…these grand truths must be given to the world... “{ch 446.1}

“Let those who are teachers and leaders in our cause take their stand firmly on bible ground in regard to health reform, and give a straight testimony to those who believe we are living in the last days of this earth's history. A line of distinction must be drawn between those who serve God and those who serve themselves.”{9t 158.2} 

“God's blessing will rest upon every effort made to awaken an interest in health reform; for it is needed everywhere. There must be a revival on this subject; for God purposes to accomplish much through this agency…”{mm 259.3} 

“He who cherishes the light which God has given him upon health reform has an important aid in the work of becoming sanctified through the truth, and fitted for immortality. But if he disregards that light and lives in violation of natural law, he must pay the penalty…”{ch 22.2} 

“God has given us great light upon the health reform, which He requries us all to respect. He does not send light to be rejected or disregarded by His people without their suffering the consequences.”{3t 311.2}”

“The light which God has given upon health reform cannot be trifled with without injury… the Lord will not be trifled with upon these subjects. He who disregards the light which God has given in regard to the preservation of health, revolts against his own good and refuses to obey the one who is working for his best good. “{ch 562.2}

“I am sorry that there are many of our people who do not strictly follow the light on health reform…”{cd 493.1}

“…Even while you fail to bring into your life and into your family the blessing that comes from following the principles of health reform, do not harm others by opposing the light God has given on this subject.”{cd 38.2} 

“His disregard of health reform unfits him to stand as the Lord's messenger.  The light that the Lord has given on this subject in His word is plain, and men will be tested and tried in many ways to see if they will heed it. Every church, every family, needs to be instructed in regard to Christian temperance. All should know how to eat and drink in order to preserve health. We are amid the closing scenes of this world's history, and there should be harmonious action in the ranks of Sabbathkeepers...”{6t 378.2} 

“At the time the light of health reform dawned upon us, and since that time, the questions have come home every day, "am I practicing true temperance in all things?" "is my diet such as will bring me in a position where I can accomplish the greatest amount of good?" if we cannot answer these questions in the affirmative, we stand condemned before God, for He will hold us all responsible for the light which has shone upon our path…He requires us to change our health destroying habits, and place ourselves in a right relation to physical laws.“ {cd 19.3}

"…God wants them to be health reformers..."{ch 137.2}

“…We must be thorough reformers in order to be Christlike.”(cd 50.3)

WHEN DID VEGANISM START? 

The term vegan was coined in 1944 by Don-ald Watson when he co-founded the Vegan Society in England, at first to mean "non-dairy vegetarian" and later to refer to "the doctrine that man should live without exploiting animals."[6] 
Interest in veganism increased in the 2000s; vegan food became increasingly available in supermarkets and restaurants in many countries, and several top athletes in endurance sports, such as the 
Ironman triathlon and the ultramarathon, began to practise veganism and raw veganism.[7]

“The health reform is just what the name indicates it to be…there is too great a mixture of foods provided…soda and saleratus, rich gravies and desserts are used far too freely. We have certainly departed from the simplicity of diet. {8mr 172.1}

We shall soon reach a time when we must understand the meaning of a simple diet. The time is not far hence, when we shall be obliged to adopt a diet very different from our present diet.  {8mr 172.2}

…We need to study the art of preparing in a simple manner the fruits, grains, and vegetables. We do not need these complex combinations that are provided. As the matter now stands we are in danger of making dyspeptics. I would ask, how many are standing by the old principles of health reform, as they were given to us years ago? {8mr 172.3}

 

What to do about this:

“…Send into the churches workers who will set the principles of health reform in their connection with the third angel's message before every family and individual. Encourage all to take a part in work for their fellowmen, and see if the breath of life will not quickly return to these churches.” {tm 415.2} 

 

The conclusion:

“…Much depends upon the question of health reform. Unless our churches occupy a higher platform upon this subject, they will not be able to appreciate the truth for this time.” {1mr 62.2}
