A “silent epidemic,” side effects from the use of prescription drugs rank third in the leading causes of death in the United States today, right behind heart disease and cancer (as stated by T. Colin Campbell in his new book, Whole). What we are not talking about here are illegal drugs that our country spends millions of dollars “warring” against. Rather, it is the pharmaceutical drugs, appropriately prescribed (according to modern medicine), that are resulting in over a hundred thousand deaths per year. In light of this disturbing trend, the words penned in this easy-to-read book have never been more relevant than they are today. Though written more than a century ago, and at times referring to outdated pharmaceutical drugs, they are exactly what we need. Unfortunately, prescription drugs are just as poisonous today as they were back then. If this little book were heeded, I believe there would be far fewer people suffering and dying today from the side effects of commonly prescribed medications. My prayer is that this compilation will open your eyes, not only to how detrimental the use of pharmaceutical drugs can be, but also to the wonderful benefits of simple natural remedies. (Mary Bernt, compiler)

When Ellen G. White in 1864 began to speak and write on proper nutrition and a way of living that took into account nature's laws, average life expectancy in the United States was 32 years; meals, served three, four, or five times a day, were highly spiced, heavy with meats, rich gravies, fried foods, and a vast array of pastries loaded with sugar and fat. Milk was often supplied by cows poorly cared for and sometimes tuberculous. Testing was unknown, and pasteurization was decades away. Except for salting and drying, the science of food preservation was still in the future. It was in this climate that Ellen White, with a pen dipped in the wisdom and knowledge of the Designer of the human form and the Author of nature's laws, called for a dietary program that was simple, healthful, nutritious, and appetizing. To this end she spoke for fifty years, writing her views in articles, books, and personal correspondence. Nutritionists today are aware of people's resistance to changes in their diet. Yet Ellen White succeeded in changing the dietary practices of hundreds of thousands who today profitably follow these counsels, now well supported by scientific research.
