Yes, he died young...Edgar Cayce was a MAN and he chose to ignore the readings he gave for his own health! Even though he was tapped into the 'Source', just like anyone, you don't have to follow the directions you receive! He always made the distinction when people noticed that he wasn't following the health tips/diet that were coming through him...That he WASN'T 'The Source', he was just a man, Edgar Cayce ...and so he has free will to listen or not to listen!
