Timmy the Tumor: ignatius_crumbcake: tenpoundsofcheese: Subby, Oz is a highly accomplished doctor. Can't believe you would call him a quack.ftfa:Oz graduated from Harvard University in 1982. Four years later, he received joint medical and M.B.A. degrees from the University of Pennsylvania. He then moved to Columbia and New York-Presbyterian Hospital, where, as a surgeon specializing in heart transplants, he has served as vice-chairman and professor in the department of surgery for more than twenty years. (He still performs operations there each Thursday.) Oz also directs Columbia's Cardiovascular Institute and Integrative Medicine Program, which he established in 1994, and has published scores of articles on technical issues, such as how to preserve muscle tissue during mitral-valve replacements. He holds a patent on a solution that can preserve organs and one on an aortic valve that can be implanted without highly invasive open-heart surgeryYes, but when he hawks shiat like this:http://www.doctoroz.com/videos/miracle-fat-burner-bottleHe is no more than a snake oil salesman out to bamboozle a gullible public.it's not just that...this week it's "white bean extract is the miracle weight loss product" the week before it was "Raspberry ketones are the miracle weight loss product" the week before it was "Green Coffee Extract is the miracle weight loss product" and so on. If you ate the recommended daily dose of all the sh*t he says are miracle cures, it would cost you $3,000 a day and you'd be swallowing capsules from dawn to dusk.
FirstNationalBastard: Captain Kangaroo was neither a Captain, or a Kangaroo.
A Terrible Human: You never trust anything that's hawked during daytime tv. It's like all the shiat Oprah suggests or like when Dr.Phil pretends he's a doctor. This guy might actually be a surgeon but it doesn't mean any of the crap he says on tv is good.
chase_neal: And don't get me started on "Judge" Judy.
Gosling: Robert1966: Here's how dickheads like Dr. Oz sleep at night: they make sure to use hedge words like "may" or "can." "Dung beetle balls may help fight cholesterol" only means that dung beetle balls are not proven not to help fight cholesterol (and "help" is another hedge).Oh, yeah. Marketing major means those words are flashing red warning lights in my head. You can say damn near anything after 'help'. A car may help get you to the sun. Sure, if you undergo all the training to be an astronaut first, there's a space shuttle program and you're selected to go, a car a can help get you there... by transporting you from the hotel to the launch site so you can board the shuttle. And also there's no guarantee that you'll get BACK from the sun, but that part wasn't promised.
FirstNationalBastard: Stupid Dr. Oz... Everyone knows that masturbating 37.5 times a day is the REAL miracle weight loss cure.
