Dear Sir/Madam, I am searching for material on scientific validation of Ellen White's views on health and diet. I would be so grateful if you could give me some websites or books where this kind of material is available. I have searched the church's official website for the E G White estate with little success.
I understand that Dr Lyn Behrens gave a speech on this topic at the Alumni homecoming a year or so ago and would be so grateful if I could get a copy of that speech.
Thank you so much for your help. With best wishes, ___________.
Thank you for contacting the Ellen G. White Estate. I'm afraid we do not have much prepared on the topic of your interest. We have a document reprinting three articles from the Review of the late 1950s, in which Dr. Clive McCay, professor of nutrition at Cornell University and a Unitarian, discusses Mrs. White's plan for a healthful diet. He noted that scientific discoveries since her time had confirmed, to a remarkable degree, her teachings on diet. He contrasted this with the teachings of others of her time. Though ___________'s work is a number of decades old, the study of nutrition has not reversed our understanding of these things since then. If anything, it has served to confirm more abundantly the wisdom of a vegetarian diet as Ellen White described it.
If you would like a copy of these things, we can send them to you for our minimum charge of $3.00, which includes postage.
If Dr. Behrens has presented material on the subject of your interest, by all means write to her at Loma Linda University and ask for a copy of her talk.
I'm sorry I couldn't be of more help on this. Let me know if you wish the item I told you about. Thank you for writing, and God bless!
