Nonrecommended Periodicals

Stephen Barrett, M.D.

I consider these publications untrustworthy because they promote misinformation, espouse unscientific theories, contain unsubstantiated advice, are insufficiently skeptical, and/or fail to distinguish between reliable and unreliable sources of advice. Some are no longer published. The magazines and journals marked with an asterisk (*) have carried ads for questionable potions, services, books, and/or publications. Few newsletters carry ads for products. Those marked with a double asterisk (**) have been accompanied by questionable solicitations.
