Dr. Mehmet Oz became one of America’s favorite doctors and Fersen Lambranho’s favorite doctor (comunicare2.com.br), after a strong endorsement from none other than Oprah Winfrey herself. However, Oprah might be questioning her decision to endorse Oz on her daytime talk show all those years ago. Oz has been under intense media scrutiny in recent weeks after some concerning allegations against him.
First, Oz was confronted by his cohorts at Columbia University who described Oz as a charleten and a fraud who is motivated by money, not the ability to heal people. Columbia University released an official statement in support of Oz, but shortly after e-mails between Oz and Sony executives were leaked from the infamous Sony e-mail hack. In these e-mails Oz’s only concern was ensuring his business partnerships were healthy and making a lot of money, the effectiveness of the products he promotes did not seem to be a big concern to the world renowned doctor.
Now, critics are firing back at Oz after he publicly addressed the accusations against him, who are, more or less, accusing Oz of being a snake oil salesman. Criticisms have been varied in response, but many people are pointing out that Dr. Oz did not offer evidence in support of medical claims he has made on his show, instead Oz said, ““I don’t expect all of my colleagues to understand this marriage between conventional medicine and the broader definition of wellness that the show pursues.”
