Dr. Mehmet Oz was put on the defensive Tuesday after appearing before a U.S. Senate subcommittee where he was taken to task for calling a weight-loss product of questionable value "a miracle in a bottle." He was also admonished for "melding medical advice, news and entertainment in a way that harms consumers."




"I recognize that my enthusiastic language has made the problem worse at times," Oz said in a statement after the hearing made headlines.http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/dr...cle-712661 I have never cared for his show..to me it's like watching a medical version of oprah ..and he should buy a better looking wig chuckle.gif

I would have liked to see the senators grill him about what exact research (not his own, obviously) led him to believe green coffee bean extract is a miracle drug for weight loss.

Quote:A new study on green coffee extract, which celebrity Dr. Oz has called a “miracle” supplement for weight loss, showed it can be harmful for mice.

Yeah, BUT

http://www.naturalnews.com/045602_Senato...octor.html



Just like with acupuncture and Chinese herbs and there's tons of evidence and documentation, the western medical community in the USA ignores, because it's not their own doctored lame test results, most of which they lie on.
Why, because they cannot patent it and make money off of it, and they don't want anyone benefiting from a cheap safe alternative to their big pharm sh*t.

It's another witch hunt, fueled by big pharm. They did the same exact thing to Dr mercola, and Kevin Trudeau.

You're talking about the country that declared walnuts a drug,, because a walnut company claimed eating them daily, prevented cancer.

The Senator who grilled him got well over $100,000 from Pfizer in donations.

When will she take Pfizer to task for Lipitor killing so many people. Or for vïäģřå for blinding or making so many deaf?

Maybe the senator hasn't read the 1st amendment. NO we don't want the government deciding what we can and cannot say about natural health. All she is doing is protecting the interest of her donors, Pfizer, et al.

They hate the competition.

Maybe the green coffee bean work or maybe they don't. It's a difference of opinion. Dr. Oz has looked into it and believes they can be effective. It's chilling to have government officials trying to censor the opinions of anyone.

Sen. McCaskell is shilling for the drug companies that have donated hundreds to thousands of dollars to her. THAT is the definition of a shill.

Actually he is not shilling for any companies.

Fly by night companies are using his name without his permission. He has talked about this problem repeatedly. He also did a long segment on his show here he showed up on the property of one of the companies looking for the executive.

This is true. He researches everything
he touts on his show.
This is how ephedra was declared illegal in the USA.
Scheisters peddling it making claiming and using it out of its scope of practice.
Real herbalists never misused it, but now we cannot use it at all, because assholes put it in a weight loss supplement, and killed people

As best I can recall, ephedra was blamed for two deaths. In one case it was an overweight baseball pitcher trying to lose weight. He wrapped himself in some kind of plastic sweat gear and overheated in a dehydrated state.

A well known pathologist looked at the case and said there was not near enough ephedra to kill the pitcher. IOW, ephedra didn't kill him. He cooked himself to death in 95 degree heat.

The other case was a high school football player who might have taken an entire bottle of the stuff. If we are to take things off the market because some people will overdose like that, then aspirin needs to be pulled off right now.
