| Potentially edible!|
Baker follows a dangerous all-meat diet, is nicknamed the "Carnivore King" and has a cult following on social media platforms. An online interview featured Baker eating sixteen fast-food burger patties, he described this as a "normal meal" that he eats.
The New Mexico Medical Board ordered the "voluntary and permanent surrender" of Baker's medical license in 2017. "This action was based on failure to report adverse action taken by a healthcare entity and incompetence to practice as a licensee." Baker's license was reinstated in 2019.
Baker believes that anecdotal evidence is more important than scientific research. He makes stupid anti-scientific YouTube videos claiming that vegetables are bad for health and that there is bias to believe they are beneficial.
