Hi George! You be happy to know that I’ll be addressing the “refrigeration issue” next week in Meridian Magazine! As to wheat, I’ve researched and written on this topic at length. You can find my writings here: https://discoveringthewordofwisdom.com/qas/food-sensitivities/. As I note, “Yes, wheat has changed, so have strawberries, apples, tomatoes, carrots, and all other foods. ALL foods have changed. If you insist on eating only the foods as they existed in the Garden of Eden, that might be tricky.”

Good Afternoon, The comma and D&C89 verse 13 are confusing at best. The eating of meat should be done sparingly, no argument. I still can't accept abstinence at other times unless you consider the lack of refrigeration issues. I m much more concerned with wheat. Please read and comment on the following: https://links.mp2200.com/preview/113213/49942950/3af114add2004c5453dcac3a8c80c2b88dfe2db7 If this be true, the the wheat that we buy today is totally different from the wheat mentioned in D&C 89. What are we to do?

For myself I have always felt we should avoid using meat during the Spring and Summer months.My wife interprets the same verse as meaning that as long as we are sparing in our use of meat it matters not whether we eat it during those seasons. For reasons of marital harmony I do not push the issue. My understanding has also been that there are good medical reasons why eating meat in the Winter is a good thing as it helps us maintain body heat. Perhaps another article examining that line of inquiry might be useful if we are to get the full meaning of this verse.
