Has mercola every published peer-reviewed research?

Many people buy mercola's books and his supplements etc. I would love it if anyone can refer me to any published peer-reviewed research by mercola. I know he has sent letters to various scientific journals, but as far as I can see he has never put any of his opinions to the test of peer review.

The last time I looked at the mercola website I found myself going round in circles on his links, each one linking back to his own articles. You know I love proper research so if you know of any peer-reviewed research that he has published supporting his claims esp keto, coconut oil etc etc that would be much appreciated.

Pubmed brings back 12 articles with j mercola as an author but that doesn't mean they are the right mercola.

To be honest, most of time if I see a reference to mercola I don't even bother to read it, as it's unlikely to be reliable.

SBM, as always, have a good take on it

Thanks for that. I have checked a couple of links using the science hub to get to the actual entries and so far just come up with just articles. For instance the first comes up as sci-hub.hk/https://www.ncbi...

For someone who has so many followers (including some on this forum) it would be good to see something credible to support his theories. To see nothing more than hot air is rather disappointing.

What brought this into mind was Dr Mercola was watching a Dr Pam Popper video talking about how Mercola was very critical of Dr Colin T Campbell and the China Study. Her video recounts Dr Campbell's comprehensive rebuttal in detail.

Cheers Andy. That's my day about to be devoted to multiple worm holes. Only joking but I wasn't so aware of him before now. Time to visit the Web site and do some of my own research. Thanks

On the contrary I see how dodgy he is but when people have ill health they are so vulnerable to anyone who promises a better outcome than conventional medicine.

Sorry, I didn't mean to suggest you'd actually start believing that stuff, but rather that there really is a whole world out there of quakery and bizzare beliefs to explore

Oh I know. All beckoning with their greedy little fingers promising miracle cures.

Do you mean peer reviewed like alumni of "The University of Natural Health"?
