A branch of Protestantism founded by Ellen G White (1827–1915), which adheres to certain health-related guidelines. Seventh-Day Adventists abstain from alcohol and tobacco; consume a simple, strictly vegetarian diet; exercise; bathe regularly; and may use prayer instead of physicians, who are consulted when necessary.
