Vernon Coleman is an author and commentator.

He has a reputation for identifying potential health risks and his influence began in the 1970s with the publication of his books, The Medicine Men and Paper Doctors, which earned him the respect of patients and the animosity of physicians and pharmaceutical companies.

In The Medicine Men (1975), Vernon highlighted the harmful connection between the medical profession and the drug industry.

His subsequent work, Paper Doctors (1977), argued that the majority of medical research primarily benefits researchers and pharmaceutical companies, suggesting that funds would be better utilised by applying existing knowledge and promoting public awareness of recognised health risks.

As a Sunday Times bestselling author, Vernon is one of the few medically trained authors who write about medical issues without bias, free from any professional or commercial ties or loyalties.

His forthrightness has made him a target of criticism from the medical community and its commercial partners, and his predictions, forecasts, and warnings have often been made years, and in many instances, decades before others have discovered and understood the evidence or had the bravery to voice their concerns.

Furthermore, through his numerous medical books and thousands of articles in newspapers and magazines, he has raised awareness about the risks associated with specific over-the-counter and prescription medications.
