19) In addition to diet, what else can we do?

Prophetic Statements

Brigham Young

We should have plenty of pure, fresh air. [1]

. . . it is far healthier to walk than to ride . . . [2]

Let the people be holy, and the earth under their feet will be holy . . . and every animal and creeping thing will be filled with peace; the soil of the earth will bring forth in its strength, and the fruits thereof will be meat for man. The more purity that exists, the less is the strife; the more kind we are to our animals, the more will peace increase, and the savage nature of the brute creation vanish away. [3]

John Taylor

Much disease can be avoided by . . . simple diet . . . pure air and bright sunshine . . . avoid the use of much animal food and of stimulants. [4]

Wilford Woodruff

I want to see a change especially with the Latter-day Saints, in their treatment of the beasts of the field. They have been given to us for our use. They are a great blessing to us, and we should treat them gently and with consideration. It is wrong to exercise tyranny over anything . . . Tyranny is not good, whether it be exercised by kings, by presidents, or by the servants of God. Kind words are far better than harsh words. [5]
