dr. oz spelt aspirin wrong

It baffles me on how difficult straight-forward logic is for some people and how their opinions are so easily influenced from major corporate campaigns. Sad. Just plain sad. Wish we could change this. Dr. Oz should be charged for being a charlatan. Fraud and assault.

What a phony "Doctor". Who is actually listening to him?
I am sad to hear this because doctor Oz had preformed open heart surgery to my grandfather and save his life, it makes me sad to see what he became.
Doreen Achtymichuk (4 days ago)
than, k God in Canada , we DO have that regulatory zeal lacking in the States. sometimes it's heartbreaking, like when a patient with ALS desperately wants new and unproven meds but, we have to take the good with the bad.

He sells out to anyone who will write him a check. Known that for years. Flops in the wind. One diŕection then the other. Scam dr.

This is really great and I am loving John Oliver right now! Has he done a similar expose on Pharma? Just wondering.
Mark Yates (11 days ago)
Yeah ya gotta be more skeptical of these people. He claims one thing and then says the other when under a hearing by Congress. Well I have mixed feelings. He is a cardiologist as well he's looking into these things and there potential benefits but I think it's fair to be weary of him presenting things in such a positive light for things not tested or FDA approved. We still need to realize the FDA isn't exactly out for our best benefit nor is our Gov't.

Any reason the is a Mosque image right behind John Oliver in the background during all the shows? I would say keep it neutral and remove it or add a temple, church, synagogue and all other places of worship as well. Love the new show... followed you over from the Daily show.. good idea for making it a weekly show on sunday.

This is why we need a strong republic rather than a democracy; people are generally too stupid to understand the world around them, so they support the very things they'd be against if they were actually informed.

At least Dr. Oz is for marijuana legalization. Only reason to keep him around, I suppose.
Over Toasted (20 days ago)
I really fucking hate Dr. Oz. He shouldn't even have his practice anymore after this. He exploited his audience big time and for that I would consider it malpractice. Also, remember he is a heart surgeon turned talk show host. My guess is that the production company (and oz for that matter) had investment in supplement companies. He has to be getting extra money after promoting these supplements so hard.

The guy is Turkish. So, if you are interested in losing weight(and your money), when and if you meet him and want some of his wares, say "Let's choke the chicken!"
Trevor L. (21 days ago)
I agree with almost everything in this video; Dr OZ is a quack, the lack of regulation of supplements is a bad thing, however as a kratom advocate, I know that new regulation will allow trumps big pharma guy at the FDA try to prevent anyone from using it.
Gus McBryde (21 days ago)
It just goes to show you shouldn't take anything you see on TV for granted - people have become so complacent, they need to do their own individual research especially when it comes to medical advice

Alternative medicine that has withstood harsh trial and has a proven effect gets to be called... wait for it... medicine. There is no other field where this is accepted or acceptable, sadly in this industry it concerns peoples health.
axer351 (24 days ago)
Jesus christ people!! 95% of supplements are useless!! There are very few that work and the ones that do have dangerous side effects. Do you know the drug called ecstasy was sold by GNC until it was banned?? Vitamins are not needed by most people, and there are no peer reviewed articles that says supplements and vitamins work There are some cases when some vitamins can help for specific problems. Vitamin D is good for people who drink alcohol because it helps the liver. Another interesting point is that many vitamins and supplements manufacturers put dyes to change the color of your urine to add to the placebo effect.

“Doctor: the word for healer and wise man throughout the universe. We get that word from you, you know. But if you carry on the way you are, what might that word come to mean?” - River Song.

Some of that was misleading. Like the fact that George R. R. Martin doesn't write anymore.

Doesn't matter whether it's exploding Ford Pintos, snake-oil supplements, guns, fossil fuels... American lives will always be worthless in the face of corporate profits. We have the best government corporate money can buy.

meh It can kill you, fine, but if you get high from it they rip it off the shelf. Also, it is not the fda's job to go after false advertisement. Why would it be? These extra spicey chips are only mildly spicey, and I bought a Iemon used car. Not the fda's job to get involved. If it is harmful, sure. Not because it does not have enough of an advertised ingredient or plant. That is lunacy.

your a fool. just like pharmaceutical mafia! natural is always better than Rx! i have CANCER and lots of issues, and its natural ingredients and other things that is helping me fix my body... ask people who have been really sick on tons of Rx that did nothing but make them MORE sick, and choose natural supplements and now healthier... no one is 100% right, but MOST the time he is close or right on spot to his knowledge at that time just like other medical doctors go by...... your a fool for making fun of him. have your moment of fame, but see if you get really sick and see how well REAL medical rx can help without hurting other parts of your body vs some of these.

Encouraging people to take an aspirin everyday is horrible. I’ve been workin in a hospital for less than a year and I’ve already seen a ton of people who have really bad medical problems from taking aspirin everyday. The worst part is it’s never their main reason for being there but because of the damage it’s done to their body we can my safely give them all of the treatment they need and so they have a much harder time recovering, if at all. So moral of the story, only take aspirin when you need it.

Anyone surprised that this Dr. Oz guy is also a Republican?
Kyle Simon (1 month ago)
And yet wasn't it the FDA who stymied the progress of an alternative to a certain overpriced HIV medication until Schkreli hiked the price by millions? It's weird how quickly the new drug, better AND cheaper than pre-hike Daraprime, was made available. Weird how the FDA didn't seem interested until the hike happened. It's almost like the FDA isn't really trustworthy to do it's job unless it's profitable and it's almost like if its more profitable for the FDA to suspend new medications behind red tape they can and will.
