Physician-blogger: "Media spotlight corrupts even the best physicians"

Posted By



Physician-blogger Tony Brayer writes, “Why I am so over Dr. Oz.” She gives examples of why she thinks he is “embarrassing” the medical profession. Her words:

dr-oz-0308-lg.jpg• “His “Real-Age” website got 27 million people to sign up and take a health quiz. That information was sold to pharmaceutical companies who used the direct emails for marketing.

• He does pieces on “men’s health” and tells men to do male breast checks once a month. No research I have read would support this advice.

• On his website he says “By the time women reach their 20th birthday, they are at risk for developing osteoporosis”. Really?

• His website deals with topics like “What his erection is telling you” and “Dangerous health secrets men keep”. Could what his erection is telling you be a dangerous health secret?”
