ABRAM HOFFER, M.D., PH.D.
50 YEARS OF MEGAVITAMIN RESEARCH, PRACTICE, AND PUBLICATION

Bibliography of the Nutrition-Related Publications of Abram Hoffer, M.D. 
(Edited and abridged by Andrew Saul, Ph.D., with Dr. Hoffer)

Notes to the reader:
1) This bibliography is, as hard as it may be to believe, actually a shortened version of Dr. Hoffer's 550 scientific publications.  This is a listing of his English language, nutrition-related books and articles only.  Listings are oldest first.  Entries in boldface type are specifically recommended by Dr. Hoffer for those new to the field.  Comments within the bibliography are Dr. Hoffer's own.

2) To obtain a copy of any of these papers, ask your public library's interlibrary loan department for assistance.  If you offer to pay for the costs of photocopying and postage,
you can usually have the library simply mail single copies directly to you.

3) “Orthomolecular” is essentially another word for “megavitamin.”

4) “Nicotinic acid” is a chemical name for vitamin B-3, niacin.  It is wholly unrelated to nicotine.
