I start every John Oliver episode thinking, “Let’s see what’s going on.” And end every episode thinking, “What’s going on??!!”

I don’t believe much ANYTHING Dr Oz says! He may b a cardio thoracic surgeon, but he’s gone “Hollywood” & would sell his soul at this point just to make $$

I hate dr OZ! My mom sent me to the market to sell him our cow, and he convinced me to buy those magic beans. Now my mom's not talking to me, and there's a fucking giant bean stalk growing next to our house.

Mehmet Oz is Turkish. So, if you meet him anywhere and you want to talk snake oil, don't say, "let's talk turkey". Say "Let's choke the chicken!"

As on point John Oliver is usually, I have a problem with the part about L-tryptophan. Having a long time problem with insomnia, that was the only thing I found that worked fairly reliably. After taking it off the market, it turned out that the whole problem was contamination from one company. Unfortunately, the whole myth had spread so far that as far as I know, it's never been put back on the market. Which is exactly what John is talking about. People jump on something on the internet or TV and don't look any farther than what agrees' with their beliefs.

Oz is an unethical, corrupt flak for dietary supplements that have no benefits. He's a joke--a real doctor turned TV crackpot.

My folks used to be all about Dr. Oz. They'd Tivo his show if they couldn't watch it, they'd follow his advice and honestly he does give good health advice. You know exercise, eat right, reduce fat, sodium and empty calories and so on. But my Dad especially was all into trying these supplements that he sold and he'd go out to the health food store to find them and try them for a bit. For all intents and purposes he is a bit of a health nut. In the gym every day. Doesn't eat processed foods. Shuns sugar in all it's forms and stuff like that. I told him he was wasting his money and then showed him this. Neither one watches him anymore. This one thing tainted the way they saw him.

The simple recipe to eatery: eat less, get thinner. thats basically 75% of what you can do. of course you can eat veggies instead of sodas to get your calories, but nodoby will die of scurvy. The problem with that: Kraft an Nestle don't earn on you eating less. Their solution: Eat as much as before or even more and then also sink your cash into supplements that don't work, but you are told they do. That's a win-win-lose situation for the food industry, the diet product industry and you. Don't be selfish and help those poor industries!

I suggest the take "Discovery Science Channel" off the air until they 'fact check' all their claims. More disinformation, pretend- science on that channel than any I've seen. When they quote "Ancient Astronaut Theorists (or "Authors") they should not have sponsors ! While Discovery does some great history shows (most of us know woefully little accurate history even of our own country) they also produce 'crappy in-search-of series in which two guys with little relevant background go out with expensive equipment.(Like ground penetrating radar and always find ABSOLUTELY NOTHING! Watch some time... What a bore! And record- setting mis- information! How can they do that?

It gives me immense pleasure to see that sold out politicians not only exist in countries like Bangladesh or India they do exist also in a 1st world country like America. Great to know that we are one America's level.

Total snake oil salesman. The networks that run his show should be brought to justice. I miss the days when John Oliver wasn’t basically a bought and paid-for anti-Trumper.

How did this guy get qualified. He memorised some stuff. He never learned to think criticalls, or understand the research process, and the value of research, and how to conduct it scrupulously and rigorously. He also skipped ethics clases. How many people have suffered because of his snake oil advice? Or even died?

If they worked, your doctor would prescribe them. In the same way that alternative medicine - once proved to work - becomes...medicine.

Dr Oz is not unlike Dr. Sanjay Gupta........hmmm...'sales'...the old tricks still work on people as well as they always have. When will we learn not to buy on someones word and do REAL Research first?.. People first. Scammy Companies need prosecution ps, personal note, Dr.Oz bites it..

I enjoy his content but worry that he isn't drawing the right conclusions from the information he is providing. I don't think he is instilling the philisophical framework needed to understand and guide the correct amount of regulation or the way to contextualize these issues

I get what you are saying, and I agree. But, to be fair, there is a small mortality benefit from decreasing colorectal cancer by the mechanism of decreasing angiogensis in the colon. Multiple studies have studied it's effect since 2010. Most recently in 2015, US Preventive Services Task Force published a paper in Evidence Syntheses, which updates it's finding [1]. USPSTF currently gives it a B rating [2], which falls under "offer and provide this service" to patients by the prescribing physicians [3].

I would bet it's at least in part because the supplements are aimed at old people and soccer moms - people who absolutely _love_ getting all up-in-arms about stupid nonsense and writing letters to congress.

Reagan deregulated the FDA which began the downward sprtal.Corporations started testing their own products instead of unbias regulatory scientists.I stopped watching Oz when he stated that circumcision was the healthier alternative .He is wrong.That kind of trauma is really mentally and physically harsh on a baby.And it gets rid of the protecting layer.I understand maybe when the Jews were wandering the desert unable to wash regularly.It seems against Nature or God to remove what was provided to protect
