Upholding the official beliefs and doctrines of the Seventh-day Adventist Church and spreading the three angels' message of Revelation 14:6-12
Note 1. - "Out of every hundred patients I have charge of at the London Hospital, seventh per cent directly owe their ill health to alcohol." - Sir Andrew Clarke, quoted in "The Shadow of the Bottle."
"The direct effect of alcohol upon the nervous system is, in all stages and upon all parts of the system, to depress or suspend its functions; that it is, in short, from first to last a narcotic drug." - British Medical Research Council, 1924.
"I have better use for my brain than to poison it with alcohol. To put alcohol in the human brain is like putting sand in the bearings of an engine." - Thomas A. Edison cited in "The Shadow of the Bottle."
Note 2. - "Tobacco is the most subtle poison known to chemists, except the deadly prussic acid." - M. Orfila.
Lord Moyniham, Dr. Rolliston, and others have shown that gastric and duodenal ulcers, as well as other disturbances of the gastro-intestinal tracts, are frequently caused by tobacco.
Dr. J. H. Kellogg definitely connects the tobacco habit with the high mortality from heart disease. Much also may be said as to the relation of the tobacco habit to the increase in the death-rate from cancer.
Note 3. - "A close sympathy exists between the physical and the moral nature. The standard of virtue is elevated or degraded by the physical habits. Any habit which does not promote healthful action in the human system degrades the higher and nobler faculties. Wrong habits in eating and drinking lead on errors in thought and action." - E. G. White in "Counsels on Health."
