Dr. Oz has been around for awhile and arose to fame after appearing on Oprah regularly. Then, he launched his own show….
The Dr. Oz Swimsuit Slim Down
I also saw him on the Today Show whining about marketers using his name and likeness to sell supplements online.
What does he expect? He stands in front of the world, recommends a probably useless dietary supplement, and he thinks no one will take advantage of his recommendation in their marketing ploys?
I do think it’s wrong to use his likeness and name, but the truth is, he did endorse the supplement by recommending it on his show and millions will go out and buy it because HE told them to. Most of these supplements have such weak scientific data to support their effectiveness and are essentially a waste of money.
I think when Dr. Oz started endorsing weight loss supplements, he “jumped the shark”. In my opinion, he has lost all credibility since he is so much about supplements, juice cleanses, and swimsuit slim downs.
As a doctor he should be promoting safe, natural weight loss by eating healthy and exercising, instead of recommending a bunch of supplements that haven’t been proven effective.
What do you think? Has Dr. Oz lost all credibility?
