Vernon Coleman (born 18 May 1946) is an English author, columnist and former general practitioner. He has written over 100 books, including works about human health, politics, cricket, and animal issues, and a range of novels.

In 1981, Dr Coleman was fined by the DHSS for refusing to write the diagnoses on sick notes, which he considered to be a breach of patient confidentiality. After publishing his first book, The Medicine Men, which accused the NHS of being controlled by pharmaceutical companies, he left the NHS to focus on his writing.

His books have appeared on several bestseller lists, including The Sunday Times. Life Without Tranquillisers reached the Top Ten of The Sunday Times in March 1985. His book Bodypower reached several bestseller lists in the UK.

One Response to Why We’re Fighting For Our Future – And Why We’ll Win

    1. Vernon Coleman has spoken, rich and yet a positive individual with a clear love for humans, rather than evil. He clearly understands Mark I Human beings and their weakness.
      Close dentists, then force mandatory use of face masks. United Nations and the World Health Organisation confirmed Agenda 21 is the new answer to our flaws, or it would appear their flaws.

      Play with earth at your peril. Well done Vernon.
