Martin J. Walker (born 1947) is a graphic designer who, for the last twenty years, has authored several self-published books and articles investigating medical politics in the United Kingdom.

His book Dirty Medicine is about British medical politics. While documenting the licensing of AZT and what he describes as an assault on alternative medicine, he also reports on various groups such as the American National Council Against Health Fraud, the American Council on Science and Health, the Committee for the Scientific Investigation of Claims of the Paranormal (CSICOP), and the British Campaign Against Health Fraud (CAHF).

In Dirty Medicine, Walker alleges that the techniques used by these organizations involve the character assassination of alternative medicine practitioners and researchers, manipulative planting of press stories, removal of critics from professional registers, bringing people before disciplinary boards, bogus scientific trials, and undeclared work with large corporations. According to Walker, "All these things were linked to a kind of regulatory ground clearing exercise."
