The majority of these references are from traditionally based scientific research publications.  However, I pretty much utilize everything available in my own learning process, and so there are also Wiki articles, mainstream news articles, alternatively based websites, and YouTube science oriented and educational videos included.

It was easiest for me to create these PDF’s and embed the links, which is why they are in this format.  Unfortunately, for the most part, there is no real definitive coherent organization of the articles and information to make it easy to find any one article.   This means you have to scroll through each PDF and browse for titles of interest to you.   Although there’s no definitive order, I did try to loosely organize the articles into topics within each PDF though.

The good news is, you can download the PDF’s, and highlight any links you are interested in, or create your own library from the links provided.  Remember, too, that the “References” section at the end of each paper is an excellent resource to find more papers on the same or similar topics.

For full papers (versus abstracts) that are not available on the internet, I’ve found that author(s) are usually more than happy to provide a copy of the full paper when I’ve emailed them.  I have not provided my copies of these full papers, because if it’s not already on the internet, then it’s not my place to do so.  But again, I would encourage anyone to simply ask for whatever paper you want, if you want more than the abstract.

There may be a few repeats of references here, simply because I had so many.  For the most part though, each of these links should be unique.  I’m sure I easily accumulated over a thousand references.  However, I did lose 300-400 or so in a hard drive crash; most of these were thyroid related that I accumulated at the start of my journey.  Here are the rest of them.
