PBS on Seventh-day Adventists and Health

Watch Seventh-day Adventists and Health on PBS. See more from Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly.

The March 23, 2012, edition of PBS´s Religion and Ethics NewsWeekly focused on the healthy Adventist lifestyle.

Like many other residents of Loma Linda, California, Holbrooke is a Seventh-day Adventist. That’s the Christian denomination that observes the Sabbath on Saturday. Adventists also emphasize a healthy diet and lifestyle as important expressions of their faith, and because of that emphasis, researchers say Adventists often have remarkably good health.

PROFESSOR LARRY BEESON (Loma Linda University): Adventists have an evidence of living longer and dying at a later age. They die of the diseases of the general population, but at a much later age—eight, ten years later.
