For apparently well-researched scientific information (I haven’t come across any refuting articles or arguments yet) on the subject of Natural Hygiene and humans’ natural diet see .

The same site also provides ”Research-Based Appraisals of Alternative Diet Lore” (at with articles such as ”Comparative Anatomy and Physiology Brought Up to Date: Are humans natural frugivores/vegetarians or omnivores/faunivores?”, ”Drawbacks to relying exclusively on clinical studies of diet.”, ”Failure to thrive: Your health is more important than raw/veg*n dietary dogma.”, ”Rationalizations in response to the evolutionary and hunter-gatherer evidence for omnivorous diets.”, ”Fruit Is Not Like Mother's Milk: The Nutritional Fallacies of a Popular Fruitarian Myth Exposed.”, ”Longevity and Health in Ancient Paleolithic vs. Neolithic Peoples”, ”Evolution vs. Creationist Pseudoscience”.

Their article ”Is Cooked Food Poison?
