What real-world doctors have to say about the advice dispensed on “The Dr. Oz Show”

Real-world doctors fact-check Dr. Oz, and the results aren't pretty

Finally, someone speaks up:

And yet only 21% of the recommendations on “The Dr. Oz Show” could be supported by what the researchers considered “believable” evidence. Another 11% were supported by “somewhat believable” evidence.
The recommendations made on “The Doctors” were more credible -- 32.5% were supported by “believable” evidence and another 20% were backed by “somewhat believable” evidence, the researchers found.

Good or so-so evidence contradicted 11% of the claims made on “Dr. Oz” and 13% of the claims made on “The Doctors.”

I was in Whole Foods Market a while back and overheard this snippet of a conversation between a couple

She "We should get some pomegranate juice"
He " Why"
She "Dr. Oz says we should drink more pomegranate juice"
He "How much does it cost"
She "This bottle costs $7"
He " In that case Dr Oz can come and "effin" pay for it"

I'm pretty sure they didn't get the juice...

32.5% damn, that's better than my local physician gets from me. Maybe I'll start watching Dr Oz and see if Medicare will pay for my cable bill.

Just another talking head, IMO. Like taking investment advice from that crazy Kramer dude.
