    Well when you have to provide content 5 days a week, and over half of what you promote turns out to be snake oil? quack quack

    This is a good cartoon – His snake oil, at best, doesn’t hurt anyone and at worst keeps people who believe his schtick from getting the help they really need.

    He’s a Dangerous Quack.

    Dr. Oz is a TV character who passes out medical advice, usually very bad advice. He does apparently have a medical degree, but he’s thrown all that aside to sell nonsense. Yes, he’s a quack.

    You have to do some reading about health and be able to filter out some of what Dr. Oz says. Then you can enjoy the show for what it is. When Dr. Oz recommends a healthy diet, it is good advice. Some of those supplements I wouldn’t go for. Watching all of the hot ladies on the show are what it’s all about. Some of them are interesting ladies! Some of them shy away and shrink away from Dr. Oz and some of them are bold to him. It’s interesting to see. It’s good TV!

    CNN did a report that said it was complicated. About half his show is mainstream medicine, so half isn’t.
    .
    And his most vehement critics are attacking him for advising his viewers to avoid GM foods, since they all work for GM producers. At least that’s what CNN says.
    .
    I don’t get the Dr Oz show where I am (I might be able to get it if I paid for premium access, but I don’t). So I had to look him up when I saw the cartoon.

    I’m still cracked up about your post stating that Universities have three important goals excluding education.

    My wife, a nurse for nearly 50 years points out that ’death panels" already exist and have for thousands of years… in the form of bad doctors.

    It was her brother who commented that half of all doctors finish in the bottom half of their class.

    But even “good” med students can be bad doctors.

    You might get a kick out of this tale. Back when I was a postdoc at a med school my supervisor who was on the admissions committe came in with an application in his hand, in a state of shock. On the page for the “Why I want to be a doctor” essay, the student had drawn a Mickey Mouse head with dollar signs for the eyes. We postdocs figured the student was giving his evaluation of why too many went into medicine. If in fact that was true (we never found out any more about him), then he might have been exactly the kind of person you want to be doing medicine who was turned off by the high achievers who got the grades but missed the mission.

    You need to read Paul Offit M.D., Bad Faith, How religious faith interferes with modern medicine. I read through it in a day. It’s quite amazing and sad.
