Five Liberian amputees, who play on an international disabled soccer team that has won three world championships, received prosthetic legs and expert rehabilitation care this spring thanks to Adventist HealthCare Physical Health & Rehabilitation (Adventist HealthCare PH&R).
Adventist HealthCare PH&R and one of its partners, Medical Center Orthotics and Prosthetics (MCOP), donated new prosthetic legs and rehabilitative care to the five Liberian refugees, who have not had access to prosthetic legs or comprehensive treatment.

Loma Linda University’s (LLU) Adventist Health Study-2 (AHS-2), which includes 26,346 Seventh-day Adventist men, recently published updates about its findings on meat-eating’s link to prostate cancer, the second most common male cancer.
The research team found that men who adopt a vegan diet (no dairy or eggs) are a third less likely to develop prostate cancer.
Gary Fraser, MD, a professor of medicine and epidemiology at LLU and principal investigator of AHS-2, says they found that, “Vegan diets showed a statistically significant protective association with prostate cancer risk.”
