NOTE TO READERS: When this project lost substantial funding at the end of 2018, I lost the ability to continue publishing criteria-driven news story reviews and PR news release reviews - once the bread-and-butter of the site going back to 2006. The 3,200 archived reviews, while still educational, are getting old and difficult for me to technically maintain on the back end of the website. So I am announcing that I plan to remove these reviews from the site by April 1, 2021. The blog and the toolkit - two of the most popular features on the site - will remain. If you wish to peruse the reviews before they disappear, please do so by the end of March 2021. After that date you may still be able to access them via the Internet Archive Wayback Machine - https://archive.org/web/.

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

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?”
