You don't think that some people's obsessive avoidance of killer-food type X gets a bit on the nutty side?

Overall, though, I do think that calling clean eating a pathology is a getting carried away with the argument. The definition would be based on an irrational avoidance of particular foodstuffs. But if someone really believes even small quantities of a particular food are going to damage his health (because he read it on Naturalnews )then it would be completely rational to avoid those foods.

I think the author fails to distinguish between irrational and ill-informed.
