Default Dr. Oz scolded at hearing on weight loss scams
by Narkissos 06-17-2014, 06:16 PM



nder pressure from Congress, celebrity Dr. Mehmet Oz on Tuesday offered to help "drain the swamp" of unscrupulous marketers using his name to peddle so-called miracle pills and cure-alls to millions of Americans desperate to lose weight.

Oz appeared before the Senate's consumer protection panel and was scolded by Chairman Claire McCaskill for claims he made about weight-loss aids on his TV show, "The Dr. Oz Show."

He made it clear on his show and even at the hearing he had explained to those people about that. If the food ain't got the gluten then don't worry about it. I am glad I don't have problems with gluten.

Honestly, when I saw this story, I thought, "Oh no, there goes Dr. Oz's reputation, just as he had gained what seemed to be "well-deserved fame"!"
But, when I come to think of it, we as consumers, have a responsibility to really test out these "ultra-effective" products that are marketed what seems to be here, there, and everywhere! Yes, they are going to come at us like a flood, but why would we decide to subscribe to use of a product if we don't know for sure that it ultimately works...and works for us?

I am glad that Dr. Oz is taking the noble step of trying to dispel the "rumors" that have been perpetrated by the makers and marketers of these products that, in reality, produce anything far from the results that they promise.
But, I also believe that he shouldn't have to feel that he has to do this. Yes, as a public personality, it rests upon him to try and maintain the best and most reliable reputation as he possibly can, but we, consumers, should "wise up" and really stop blaming those professionals who have "fallen victim" to money-hungry knock-off product-makers.

Know your facts, research what you don't, and move on!
