Diet Decisions by Joyce Kinmont (1999)
“To a significant degree, we are an overfed and undernourished nation digging an early grave with our teeth, and lacking the energy that could be ours because we overindulge in junk foods….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.” Teachings of Ezra Taft Benson
“As I’ve visited with homeschoolers over the past 25 years, I’ve seen increasing problems with children who would be labeled A.D.D. and medicated if they were in public schools. I’ve seen behavior problems and health problems that make homeschooling extremely difficult. Families are suffering terribly. While there are many factors involved in correcting these problems, a change of diet seems to be the most logical place to start.
“So I write. It’s the best tool I have for warning my children and anyone else who will listen. I write without any special credentials – just me, a mom, hoping that you’ll see things you’ve never noticed before, that you’ll question things you’ve automatically accepted before, that you will ask your Heavenly Father to open up truths you’ve never asked about before. It’s my desire to encourage you, to influence you, to BEG you to take seriously the Lord’s instructions to us in the Word of Wisdom and the scientific findings of our day that support it.” (Introduction to Diet Decisions)
