Dr Oz and others have gotten rich by using 'flowery language' to promote supplements for weight loss. Green coffee extract? Didn't Oprah make him famous in the first place? That's another show for medical information... Dr Oz is currently spending his days at the US Senate defending his language and promotion of supplements that do exactly nothing and making scam arts rich.
The problem with these fad supplements are several:
- Supplements are not tested and approved by the FDA and can contain toxic ingredients and can interact with prescription medication. The message here is do not use them without talking to your doctor.
- Scammers and others quickly hop on the bandwagon and get rich off the people who believe in what they see on TV.
While Dr Oz is grilled in Washington, we just need to remember what we have been told previously. Don't believe what you see on TV or read online.
