WWW This site
Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (Mormons, LDS)
Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints
This very attractive site is the Church's official site. Check out the Basic Beliefs section, which redirects visitors to a different web address, and proceed to the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) area to find the Church's position on controversial social issues, such as abortion, homosexuality, and family/gender roles. Food and dietary restrictions are very briefly addressed in the FAQ's General section.

Users seeking more health information should return to the official church page and conduct a search using the Gospel Library section. This section contains magazine articles from official LDS publications since 1971. A search using the term "health beliefs" yield nearly 700 results dealing with a variety of issues, including tobacco, alcohol, and physical fitness. More specific searches are suggested to narrow results. Last Reviewed: 7/2007.

An Unofficial Introduction to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints
This personal Web page is packed full of text and links. Unfortunately, the page layout is textually dense and, therefore, difficult to locate the desired health information. The Word of Wisdom section contains some information regarding "health codes." Follow the link to Section 89 for the official text on these matters. Last Reviewed: 7/2007.
