is a principal author of beyondveg.com, a website that purports to provide
"Reports from veterans of vegetarian and raw-food diets, veganism,
fruitarianism, and instinctive eating, plus new science from paleolithic
diet research and clinical nutrition.", in addition to exposing dangerous
and false beliefs and practices in the raw-food and/or vegetarian/vegan community.
If only that were true; the site is an excellent
study of the dangerous, false, misology of the nonscientist who, having
no significant understanding of biochemistry or general science, uses
scientific-sounding words and misinterpretations of scientific data to
support false conceptual paradigms.
Since nutrition can be investigated only
by the scientific tool called biochemistry, discussions of diet that totally
ignore chemistry and focus on other irrelevant information, such as cultural
belief or tradition, is clearly meaningless. That is nutribabble,
and this page will lead to analyses of the nutribabble presented on beyondveg.com.
On a set of pages titled Dietary
Problems in the Real World, "Bios of vegetarians, ex-vegetarians,
and others in search of health, not dogma...", Billings
and others candidly discuss their personal dietary failures; so let's
take a look at these revelations.
