Author of 14 books, Dr. Collins studied philosophy, classical languages, and world literature intensely in High School, and wrote, at the age of 19, his first philosophy book, "Maximum Irony", challenging the validity of widely accepted ideas by exposing the quicksand on which they are built, and ironically establishing a solid foundation in the one place no one ever looked.
After a long career in medical research, developing rapid, ultra-sensitive, quantitative DNA probe assays for the deadly diseases, such as Hepatitis and AIDS, he has been researching and inventing practical, science-based solutions to a wide range of important problems.
Self-taught in the science of nutrition, Dr. Collins was able to side-step the most inveterate errors of interpretation that currently plague that field. Consequently, he was able to develop a broader-based nutritional viewpoint that explains both recent data and apparently contradictory observations. From that interpretation emerges a simple and workable program for better health without obsession, boredom, or pain.
Most recently, he has immersed himself in the formal study of Law and is a registered US Patent Agent in San Diego.

Problems with the US Government Dietary Guidelines
by Mark Collins
This scientific lecture describes a quantitative theory which suggests deficiencies in the US government's approach to nutrition. The book also contains a quantitative nutritional analysis of foods in the USDA database, with tables of the top twenty five most nutritious foods, the most nutritious food groups, and a new food pyramid. The book, "The Square Meal Diet," extends this thesis.

A new religion based entirely on science is brought to life using a fictional tale of a Jesus-like figure, a science-minded and deeply spiritual man, whose teachings ended the strife that still divides our world.
