Where Prevention SURPASSES Cure

with No Comments

Many readers of this blog know of my disdain for Dr. Oz’s reckless proclamations on his nationally televised show. During the night for unfamiliar pain From Green Espresso Draw out for weight loss to two baby aspirins, I find such advice irresponsible and dangerous. After watching numerous shows and finding much to object to, I simply stopped watching. Occasionally, I am reminded of his showmanship when a patient presents to MDPrevent with a heaping batch of worthless supplements in tow.

The article begins innocently enough with Oz explaining that frozen vegetables retain the same nourishment as their fresh counterparts. On this point, the science facilitates the nice doctor. As I kept reading, his other assertions appeared hardly controversial also. Then it came and couldn’t believe it. Mid way through the article, Dr. Oz shares a personal story of how he and his dad use to drive together to the ice cream store when he was a kid. During these memorable rides wonderfully, he writes how he learned much of what he knows about his father.

Accordingly, he has fond thoughts associated with eating glaciers cream. This is not surprising. Virtually all patients I care for relate some positive (or negative) association with certain foods. Some enjoy steak since it represents a positive correlation to family dinners celebrated over some good news. For me personally, it’s watermelon.

It reminds me of coming back from romantic dates on Saturday evenings and enjoying a sumptuous cut of cool watermelon only and undisturbed in your kitchen. For Dr. Oz, it is ice cream clearly. On the surface there is certainly nothing wrong with that. Actually, it’s a very nice tale and sentiment. Except he feels that his sentimental tale warrants informing his readers that they need to therefore consume snow cream (albeit in affordable amounts).

There can be without doubt that Dr. Oz is aware of the epidemic of weight problems that is ravaging our country. A recent article in Mother Jones publication chronicles the attempts of the sugar industry over the past five years to squelch negative promotion about the dangers of sugar and to mistake the populace about its perils. Sugar and related simple carbohydrates are also mainly responsible for the development of diabetes and high triglycerides. You don’t have to be a doctor, let a cardiovascular surgeon alone, to know of the dangers of sugar even in smaller amounts for certain people and in larger amounts for practically everyone.

Jayne Hurley, a older nutritionist at the guts for Science in the general public Interest. In ’09 2009, the guts for Science in the Public Interest commissioned a study that looked at saturated extra fat and calories in a few of the most popular goodies from Baskin-Robbins, Cold Stone Creamery, Friendly’s, Ben & Jerry’s and TCBY.

Most of the info in the dietary analysis was provided by the firms. This is apparently the same type of snow cream that Dr Oz is advocating that people eat when they go to the store because of this dangerous treat. He just says don’t eat too much. Folks, I don’t care what sentimental attachment Oz has for glaciers cream. On further thought, maybe it’s a good thing if Oz retains eating glaciers cream. I QUICKLY might not have to spend your time educating others of the danger of taking health advice from him on TV, on the web, or in print.

That’s not true. I must say i don’t suggest him or anybody damage so I hope he knows better and just keeps his mouth shut when it comes to eating and providing advice about snow cream. It wasn’t the first time he made such a blunder, but for all our sakes and especially those who keep him in great esteem and follow his every pronouncement, let’s wish it’s the last.
