Tom Billings and

     Tom Billings is a principal author of, 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
     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.
