R.I.P. Seth Roberts

Blowhard, Esq. writes:


I’m shocked and saddened to learn that scientist, professor, self-experimentation advocate, and best-selling author Seth Roberts has died. I was an avid reader of Seth’s blog for years and even met him in person a couple times. Being a fan of his, I was tickled when on a few occasions he rang me up to get my opinion on ideas he was kicking around. Not only was Seth a tireless critic of academia and the medical establishment, he went one step further by actually showing how the average person can do things better than the so-called professionals.

For those who don’t know about Seth, here are some good places to start:

Seth was a brilliant and generous person. He will be missed.

    Blowhard, thanks to the introduction to Seth Roberts’ work. Following your links to his ideas on diet — I like the direct, conversational approach. A contrast to typical academic discourse on the subject.

    At his blog, Roterts’ sister writes,

    Seth died on Saturday, April 26, 2014. He collapsed while hiking near his home in Berkeley, CA.

    What a tragedy. At least he died doing something he enjoyed. May God’s eternal light shine upon him.


  4. I’m in shock, what a loss. I can’t enumerate the important things Seth taught me. He touched 1000s of lives at a minimum.

    Awful news. I admired him a great deal.
