It seems that no one can escape the consequences of making claims that are apparently not scientifically founded, not even the successful health guru and medical doctor, Dr Mehmet Oz, who hosts his famous show called “The Dr Oz Show.”
Dr Oz interrogated by US senators
Recently, Dr Oz was publicly interrogated by USA senators who are more than a bit concerned about claims he has been making about certain weight loss products, which has been labelled as totally ineffective by other health experts. The leading subcommittee of Consumer Protection, Product Safety and Insurance, Senator Clair McCaskill’s main concern was that they feel that Dr Oz is promoting weight loss products which are not proven as effective in scientific studies.
Dr Oz has been warned to tread lightly and refrain from dubbing certain products as “weight loss miracles” after one of these promoted products was sued for placing unsubstantiated claims on its website.
Dr Oz stands by his ethics
Although these are some serious claims, Dr Oz responded that he also recommends his chosen products to his family members. He further responded saying: “ I actually do personally believe in the items I talk about on the show. I would give my audience the advice I give my family all the time and I’ve given my family these products.” Due to the gravity of the accusations, Dr Oz has promised to be more careful of which products he chooses to feature on his show in the future. “In addition to exercising an abundance of caution in discussing promising research and products in the future, I look forward to working with all those present today in finding a way to deal with the problems of weight loss scams,” Dr. Oz said.
