Forks Over Knives, Science behind the Word of Wisdom

  We just watched the new 'Forks Over Knives' movie last night. It was very well done and just incredible. It is Dr. T. Collin Campbell from The China Study and others who have proved, with science, time and time again how having a plant-based diet can reverse and diminish heart-disease, diabetes, cancers, arthritis, high blood pressure, depression, and a vast number of other degenerative diseases and health problems.
 I watched in awe, as the illustrations of arteries being built with plaque and the blockage that comes with eating meat, eggs, and dairy products were displayed, my stomach just churned inside to know that most people eat that on a regular, day to day basis. I did!
  That's why a started a blog, people watch movies like this, or want to start changing little things at a time, but don't know How or Where to start. They don't know What to eat. Eating healthy can be fun, but I know you have to first have the right ingredients on hand and learn a few skills, (I knew nothing) like how to make a few main dishes and desserts, so when those future cravings come, as they do for all, you will have a healthier option at your fingertips.
  When the movie had finished I have to admit I was a little sick at first, but then almost immediately I was filled with gratitude that I was placed in a trial of health a few years ago and was willing to search for more that "medical advice." As my husband I talked we realized that this movie was really just science proving, once again, that God is real and gives us commandments such as in the Doctrine and Covenants, Section 89 to eat "bfruit of the vine; that which yieldeth fruit, whether in the ground or above the ground" And when we follow these commandments we are promised in verse 18 we "ashall receive bhealth in their navel and marrow to their bones;19 And shall afind bwisdom and great ctreasures of dknowledge, even hidden treasures;20 And shall arun and not be bweary, and shall walk and not faint."
 Our Heavenly Father gave us the food we need to thrive in a healthy body and I am so grateful for this knowledge and the opportunity to spread the good news of Jesus Christ, the Gospel of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.


  1. So true. Grateful for the knowledge God has given us and the continued knowledge, even hidden treasures that He unfolds. Thank you for being you. Courageous to share. And Thank you for what you are doing for others. May the Lord bless you forever!

  2. The Blessings of the Word of Wisdom are both spiritual and physical. I love when science figures outs what prophets both old and current have been telling us for centuries!
