"A systematic approach to Ellen White’s statements on health, particularly in the physical realm, has shown that her words need not be misunderstood and are as sound today as when they were given. She conveyed a profound sense of reverence for God’s word and His instructions on health. Her statements were meant to amplify the principles contained in the Scriptures. I could find no evidence of deficiency in either source. The claim that modern science has discounted her views on such things as leprosy114 is inaccurate. White was more aware of things happening in her day than some modern-day writers are and she possessed a scientific awareness sometimes far in advance of her day, as demonstrated by the evidence given here. She moved in a plane entirely different from others, as is amply demonstrated by reading selected articles in the health and scientific journals of her day written by people considered to be experts."
