I would suggest you email Dr. Oz and tell him to address the problem on his TV show. Not everyone reads his blog! I have done that regarding other things. Thanks Phil and Jill.

Noted, tweeted, tweeted, shared. Maybe Dr. OZ doesn't want to look too closely at this because since he supports it; he wants people to use his tonic. It might even have something to do with money; God forbid.

I find it hard to believe that "Dr. Oz" didn't already know of the harm he was doing when he used palm oil in his medicine--I think he just didn't care until he was called on it.
I agree with Marg that he should speak up about this on his TV show--as a popular public figure that people (for some reason) look up to, he needs to show some evidence of ethics, morals and (correct) values--just my opinion.
Thank you Jill for posting and Philip for forwarding.

I've already signed petitions about this, and I'm really ticked that Oz hasn't pulled the product containing the oil and issued a stronger responce.
I'll send an email, as I long ago stopped watching his program as his product endorsements became a little to much..

It's like Oprahs yearly "favorite things" ..merely being on the list causes near mass hysteria to own it, damn where it came from or what ethics were ignored in the making of it. Thanks Jilli

Dr. Oz has been sold to big pharma as he also pushed flue vaccines as well! Greed has taken over his life!

Dr. Oz is merely motivated by his greed.

Noted. Thanks for posting Michela and Jill. It's a shame Dr. Oz has chosen to go off the straight and narrow. Greed is one of the 7 deadly sins. All the greedy, money & power hungry notables have committed this sin. And now Dr. Oz has joined in with them. What a shame.
