Ancient Scripture in accord with Alkaline Science
For the Life of All Flesh is in the Blood
(This is particularly interesting with reference to the live and dry blood research of nutritional microscopy which assesses the health of the body and it's organ systems by studying the quality and integrity of the blood)
And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so.
(The first things we were instructed to use by the Lord for "meat" or food were plants)
And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, behold, we will give them life, and also we will give to them every green herb for meat, and all these things shall be thus organized.
The Dead Sea Scrolls-Teachings of Jesus to the Essences
"It is the angel of life that flows through the blades of grass into the body"...
"For the grass is life and the Son of Light is Life and life flows between the Son of Light and the blades of grass"...
"Making a bridge to the Holy Stream of Light which gave birth to all creation."
1 Peter 1:24
For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass
...in the time of the latter rain; so the LORD shall make bright clouds, and give them showers of rain, to every one grass in the field.
All flesh is grass, and all the goodliness thereof is as the flower of the field:
The prophet Daniel learned that by adhering to certain laws of health, in this case avoiding certain contaminated meats and alcohol, he would develop a much stronger physical constitution and maintain a closer relationship with the spirit.
But Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself with the portion of the king’s meat, nor with the wine which he drank: therefore he requested of the prince of the eunuchs that he might not defile himself
....As for these four children, God gave them knowledge and skill in all learning and wisdom: and Daniel had understanding in all visions and dreams.
...thy dwelling shall be with the beasts of the field, and they shall make thee to eat grass as oxen, and they shall wet thee with the dew of heaven...
...he was driven from men, and did eat grass as oxen, and his body was wet with the dew of heaven, till his hairs were grown like eagles’ feathers, and his nails like birds’ claws.
...they fed him with grass like oxen, and his body was wet with the dew of heaven; till he knew that the most high God ruled in the kingdom of men, and that he appointeth over it whomsoever he will.
Thorns also, and thistles shall it bring forth to thee, and thou shalt eat the herb of the field.
And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew.
...and to everything that creepeth upon the earth, wherein I grant life, there shall be given every clean herb for meat; and it was so, even as I spake.
And I, God, said unto man: Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree in the which shall be the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.
...and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, behold, we will give them life, and also we will give to them every green herb for meat, and all these things shall be thus organized.
1 Nephi 19:17
For the things which some men esteem to be of great worth, both to the body and soul, others set at naught and trample under their feet. Yea, even the very God of Israel do men trample under their feet; I say, trample under their feet but I would speak in other words—they set him at naught, and hearken not to the voice of his counsels.
In the Old Testament it states:
Hosea 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee...
2 Nephi 15:13 My people are gone into captivity because they have no knowledge.
This is the current situation throughout most of the United States and the World. The lack of knowldedge about whats really going on with regards to the health of our bodies and spirits. This, our lack of knowledge, has made us complacent in physical and emotional mediocrity. We as a people on earth have resigned to our discomfort. We are held captive in a destroying medical system which cannot heal us or enlighten us. The need for this understanding is universal whether we seek to be superior athletes, effective networkers or powerful fathers it will be important for our growth.
It is crucial that each of us seek knowledge which is available to us and be accountable for ourselves. This work is not only for our own well being but for the future of all our posterity. So I invite you to seek the further light and knowledge that is available to us and begin to prepare our future generations of children of whom the personal application and firm grasp of this science will be expected.
-Dr. Robert O. Young Ph.D., D.Sc.
"Just like the children of Israel who wandered and died in the wilderness - I see
the same thing happening today in America and around the world - people wandering and dieing in the wilderness because of lack of knowledge. My hope and prayer is that all will empower themselves with the truth of this New Biology."

Teachings of the Prophet Spencer W. Kimball
...When we pray for health we must live the laws of health and do all in our power to keep our bodies well and vigorous. We pray for protection and then take reasonable precaution to avoid danger. There must be works with faith.
Hyrum Smith, Times and Seasons, 6-1-1842, pp.799-800
When God first made man upon the earth, he was a different being entirely to what he now is; his body was strong, athletic, robust, and healthy; his days were prolonged upon the earth; he lived nearly one thousand years, his mind was vigorous and active, and his intellectual faculties clear and comprehensive, but he has become degenerated. . . . Man is not now that dignified, noble, majestic, honorable and mighty being that he was when he first proceeded from the hands of his Maker. . . . (the Lord) has appointed the word of wisdom as one of the engines to. . . .remove the beastly appetites, the murderous disposition and the vitiated taste of man; to restore his body to health, and vigour, promote peace between him and the brute creation . . . .”
In pitching my tent we found three massasaguas, or prairie rattlesnakes, which the brethren were about to kill, but I said, “Let them alone–don’t hurt them! How will the serpent ever lose his venom, while the servants of God possess the same disposition, and continue to make war upon it? Men must become harmless, before the brute creation; and when men lose their vicious dispositions and cease to destroy the animal race, the lion and the lamb can dwell together, and the suckling child can play with the serpent in safety.”
When men live to the age of a tree, their food will be fruit.
If the people were willing to receive the true knowledge from heaven in regard to their diet they would cease eating swines flesh. I know this as well as Moses knew it.
Teachings of Presidents of the Church, Brigham Young, p. 333
Let the people be holy, and the earth under their feet will be holy. Let the people be holy, and filled with the Spirit of God, 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. . . Let the whole people . . . be possessed of that spirit and here is the Millennium, and so will it spread over all the world. -
Brigham Young’s sermons in Utah frequently mentioned animals.
He held that “the more kind we are to our animals the more peace will increase and the savage nature of the animal creation will vanish away.” He blamed rich food, especially beef and pork, for shortening lives, claiming that “the foundations of longevity,” living even to “hundreds of years” would be found in a prudent diet, especially that of our parents in Eden.
Joseph Fielding Smith, 10th President: Small children do not need the flesh of animals. May I add also that adults would be far better if they would refrain from too much eating of meat. As far as I am concerned the eating of meat should be very sparingly. In fact, I will be contented if the Millennium was to be ushered in next week. When it is, we will learn that the eating of meat is not good for us. Why do we feel that we do not have a square meal unless it is based largely on meat? Let the dumb animals live. They enjoy life as well as we do…Naturally, in times of famine the flesh of animals was perhaps a necessity, but in my judgment when the Millennium reaches us, we will live above the need of killing dumb innocent animals and eating them. If we will take this stand in my judgment, we may live longer.
Joseph Fielding Smith in 1978 delivered a strong denouncement of killing for sport and advanced humaneness in general, quoting the previous prophets extensively. Noting that “it was important the animals be on the earth” he called the destruction of wildlife “wicked” and said “every soul should be impressed by the sentiments of all the prophets preceding me.”
Ezra Taft Benson, 13th President:
We need a generation of young people who, as Daniel, eat in a more healthy manner than to fare on the kings meat and whose countenances show it.
But what needs additional emphasis are the positive aspects…the need for vegetables, fruits, and grain, particularly wheat…We need a generation of people who eat in a healthier manner.
In general, the more food we eat in its natural state and the less it is refined without additives, the healthier it will be for us.
Bruce R. McConkie, The Millennial Messiah, p. 658
Isaiah gives us these poetically phrased particulars about animal life during the Millennium, “The wolf and the lamb shall feed together,” he says, “and the lion shall eat straw like the bullock.” Implicit in this pronouncement is the fact that man and all forms of life will be vegetarians in the coming day; the eating of meat will cease, because, for one thing, death as we know it ceases. At Zion's camp in 1834 Joseph Smith prevented his followers from killing three rattlesnakes and exhorted them “to become harmless before the brute creation, and then the animal kingdom will follow.”
George Q. Cannon of the Quorum of the 12. Gospel Truth, Vol. 1, p.30
We should by every means in our power impress upon the rising generation the value of life and how dreadful a sin it is to take life. The lives of animals even should be held far more sacred than they are. Young people should be taught to be very merciful to the brute creation and not to take life wantonly or for sport. The practice of hunting and killing game merely for sport should be frowned upon and not encouraged among us. God has created the fowls and the beasts for man's convenience and comfort and for his consumption at proper times and under proper circumstances; but he does not justify men in wantonly killing those creatures which He has made and with which He has supplied the earth.
At age 72 George Canon wrote; “To inflict pain or death unnecessarily upon any of the creation is not a commendable pursuit. To delight in slaughter and blood is not an indication of a pure heart. How is the time to come when enmity between man and beast shall cease If man, the superior animal, does not take himself the first steps by getting rid of his blood thirstiness and by regarding all life as sacred.”
Lorenzo Snow said of an incident in his youth, “While moving forward in pursuit of something to kill, my mind was arrested with the reflection on the nature of my pursuit - that of amusing myself by giving pain and death to harmless creatures that had as much right to life as myself. I realized that such indulgence was without any justification, and feeling condemned, I laid my gun on my shoulder, returned home, and from that time to this have felt no inclination for that murderous amusement.” In a later comment, he said he felt “the Word of WIsdom was violated more in the improper use of meat as in other things.”
Teachings of the Prophet Lorenzo Snow, p.188-189
Killing for sport is wrong...One day, to while away the slowly passing hours, I took my gun with the intention of indulging in a little amusement in hunting turkeys... From boyhood I had been particularly, and I may say strangely, attached to a gun. Hunting in the forests of Ohio was a pastime that to me possessed the most fascinating attractions. It never occurred to my mind that it was wrong-that indulging in "what was sport to me was death to them;" that in shooting turkeys, squirrels, etc., I was taking life that I could not give; therefore I indulged in the murderous sport without the least compunction of conscience.
Joseph F. Smith in 1912 spoke thus to the Deseret Sunday School Union, “It is wrong, and I have been surprised at prominent men whom I have seen whose very souls seemed to be a thirst for the shedding of animal blood. They go off hunting ‘Just for the fun ot if.’ Not that they are hungry and need the flesh of their prey, but because they love to shoot and destroy life. I am a firm believer in the words of one of the poets” Take not away the life you cannot give / for all things have an equal right to live.”
Joseph F. Smith Answers to Gospel Questions, Vol.4, p.48
never could see why a man should be imbued with a blood-thirsty desire to kill and destroy animal life. I have known men--and they still exist among us--who enjoy what is, to them, the "sport" of hunting...I do not believe any man should kill animals or birds unless he needs them for food... I think it is wicked for men to thirst in their souls to kill almost everything which possesses animal life. It is wrong...
Heber J. Grant in 1945 at a general Conference, said, “I think that another reason I have splendid health for an old man (88) is that during the years we have had a cafeteria in the Utah Hotel I have not, with the exception of not more than a dozen times, ordered meat of any kind. I have endeavored to live the Word of Wisdom.”
