Dr. Oz And Weight Loss Diet Scams

Every year millions of people put their money and trust in weight loss diet products.

Every year those same millions, lose their money, gain weight, and end up in worse shape after trying these different miracle cures.

Not knowing where to turn for help, and tired of the weight loss rollercoaster, looking to a doctor makes sense. After all, doctors take an oath to practice medicine honestly.

So when a doctor comes along, stands on the rooftops shouting…

“ground breaking new supplement… can triple your fat loss”

It can’t help but get your attention.

 

Every day Dr Oz stands on his rooftop shouting something new…

“the number one miracle in a bottle”

“the miracle pill to burn fat fast”

“flushes fat fast”

‘”it may be the simple solution you’ve been looking for to bust your body fat for good”

Instead of living up to the Hippocratic Oath he took, his false claims are fueling the diet supplement industry scams.

 

I've spoken about Dr. Oz and his miracle weight loss cures before. He's been at this a long time. Maybe now that there is a little heat on him, he'll stop with his lies.

To combat the fraud around weight-loss diet scams, U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill, chair of the Senate's Consumer Protection panel recently heard testimony from Dr. Mehmet Oz. The host of the Dr. Oz Show.

They discussed deceptive advertising of weight-loss products, his role in the deception, and what can be done to protect consumers.

At the hearing Oz admitted that many of the dietary supplements he toutes as amazing miracle cures don't pass "scientific muster." The Fitness Fugayzi has been revealed.

Why the asked Oz to testify is beyond me. Why do you ask someone creating the problem for answers to help solve the problem. It's like asking a crack dealer how how to get his product of the streets. It  doesn’t make any sense.

Why has Senator McCaskill invited Dr. Oz to testify about weight-loss and diet scams?

 

dr.oz lies

 

In the clip below John Oliver goes over a few contradicting statements Dr. Oz makes in reference to the nutrition supplement industry. He also includes some footage of the hearing.

Oz, admitted his language about green coffee and other supplements as "flowery."

"The scientific community is almost monolithic against you in terms of the efficacy of the three products you called 'miracles,' " said McCaskill, a Missouri Democrat. She said she was discouraged by the "false hope" his rhetoric gives viewers and questioned his role "intentional or not, in perpetuating these scams."

What gets me is that he never admits that his miracle weight loss cures don't work. Instead what he does is pass the buck. He blames fly-by-night companies for selling inferior products.

Ironically he admits that there's no scientific validity to his claims...

"I recognize that oftentimes they don't have the scientific muster to present as fact."

 

He goes on to say that MAYBE in the future he'll recommend places people where people can go to buy high quality products.

Guess what. That day will never come. It can't come because there will be a direct link between him and a product that he knows doesn't work. He knows that his recommendations will not help you, or anyone else lose weight.

Watch for yourself...

I'm thankful for the team at examine. They have two great books all about supplements...

The Stack Guides

Supplement-Goals Reference Guide

Supplement review giudeThey have taken years to put these reference books together. Unlike Dr Oz they go through the research, examine it and tell you what works and what doesn't.

They are independent. They don't sell supplements, and they don't cherrypick.

We are not trying to sell you supplements. We are 100% neutral and conduct all of our research independently, allowing us to come to our own conclusions regarding the validity of which supplements work.

Bottom line. If you have a supplement question, and are looking for an honest answer. These are the guys to turn to.

Oz was asked why he promotes supplements that he knows don't work. Why he uses flowery language. He was cautioned that as a celebrity and doctor, that he has lots of influence. So why mislead people?

Oz doesn't want to feel censored.

“When I feel as a host of a show that I can’t use words that are flowery or passionate,” he said, “then I feel that my power has been disenfranchised.”

“I fill a need to fuel passion in peoples’ lives about what they can do,”

Physicians want Dr. Oz gone from Columbia medical faculty.

Doctor Mehmet Oz occasionally teaches, at Columbia University Medical Center. But some doctors want that stopped.

They feel his "egregious lack of integrity" promoting  "quack treatments"  is misleading and endangers the public warranting his removal from his faculty position.

Oz has acknowledged some of the products he's promoted to viewers, "don't have the scientific muster to present as fact." Even after this, he continues to advise viewers to use such products.

The Making of Dr. Oz

http://www.vox.com/2015/4/16/8412427/dr-oz-health-claims

 

A British Medical Journal study looked into the claims made by Oz. They randomly selected 40 episodes of the two most popular internationally syndicated health talk shows, The Dr. Oz Show and The Doctors. Their findings were shocking.

About half of the recommendations either contradicted what the best available research says or had no supporting evidence at all.
