Bibliography: Abram Hoffer, M.D.
Bibliography of the Nutrition-Related Publications of Abram Hoffer, M.D.
1) This bibliography is, as hard as it may be to believe, actually a shortened version of Dr. Hoffer's 600-plus 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, and his comments are also in boldface type.)
2) "Orthomolecular" is essentially another word for "nutritional."
3) "Nicotinic acid" is a chemical name for vitamin B-3, niacin. It is biologically unrelated to nicotine.
