Since its inception the Adventist Church has promoted a philosophy of health and healing and the Conference has been promoting a healthy lifestyle for both church members and those in the wider community.
In recent years our lifestyle has been the subject of much scientific research. Over 200 scientific articles have been released from studies conducted on Adventists in different parts of the world. These findings have clearly demonstrated the health benefits of the Adventist lifestyle. They report less disease and longer life for Adventists than for comparable groups.
