Office for Science and Society
Join us for the Lorne Trottier 2014 Public Science Symposium!
Limited seats!! No reservations, just drop by--first come, first serve!
I spent quite some time talking with the reporter who wrote this story about the Food Babe. She did quote me correctly but as far as having lots of fans and "some" critics goes...well those "some" consist of members of the scientific community who know a lot more about food science than the "fans."

Dr. Oz has absolutely gone haywire. In pushing the "alkaline" diet he takes a piece of kidney and pours acid on it to show how it disintegrates and infers this is happening in the body. This is insane. The pH of the blood is maintained at about 7.35 no matter what the diet. Oz has lost all perspective and is falling deeper and deeper into the abyss of quackery.

The wizardry of Dr. Oz
The surgeon and TV celebrity has succeeded in winning fans and influencing public health debates - which troubles some experts.
Mehmet Oz's followers believe he is a trustworthy, serious-minded (and hot) physician.
His equally fervent flock of critics say he is a fad-foisting, ratings-grubbing (and smart) TV celebrity.
In the 10 years since Oprah dubbed him "America's Doctor," the 53-year-old Oz has shown he is comfortable in both roles.
