The Bible is the source of many ethical principles. As it is well articulated, every design has a designer who gives instructions on how to handle his invention. A scrutiny of the Word of God demonstrates that using a sustainable approach to health promotion, God provided universal dietary measures to prevent of control many ill conditions, including non-communicable diseases that have become pandemic. Adherence to divine health guidance can alleviate many preventable diet-related diseases.
