Heart Surgery 101 with Dr. Oz

Dr.Mehmet Cengiz Oz

Dr.Mehmet Cengiz Oz was born  in Cleveland, Ohio, in 1960.  His  parents, Suna and Mustafa Oz, emigrated from Konya Province, Turkey in 1955.   Dr. Oz is a real doctor, a cardiothoracic surgeon.  Dr. Oz lives in New Jersey, with his wife Lisa.whom he married in 1985.  They have four children. Their  eldest daughter is  Daphne Oz, author and television host.

Beginning in 2004, Dr. Oz appeared  on The Oprah Winfrey Show for five seasons as a health expert.    
Since then, Dr. Oz has become a well known and very popular TV personality.  His TV Transplant series won a Freddie and a Silver Telly.  He is currently the host of  The Dr. Oz Show and is on Sirius XM Radio.

Dr. Oz has also co-authored, six New York Times best sellers.  You: The Owner’s Manual, You: The Smart Patient, You: On a Diet, You: Staying Young, You: Being Beautiful, Healing from the Heart. He has also authored You: Having a Baby  published by Free Press. In 2014, he launched his bi-monthly magazine Dr. Oz THE GOOD LIFE.

Dr. Oz is well liked and admired and respected and has many awards.  One is Turkish American of the year, Dr. Oz is both a US. and Turkish citizen.

Dr. Oz is a supporter of  alternative medicine and homeopathy.. This support has resulted in criticism by physicians, government officials and publications, including Popular Science and The New Yorker, for giving non-scientific advice. This website has also criticized Dr. Oz for some of his weight loss testimonies of products that are unproven or simply do not work.  My Raspberry Ketone review and Garcinia Cambrogia reviews are a couple of examples of Dr. Oz endorsing an unproven weight loss product.  

Dr. Oz

Our beloved Oz has stepped in doo doo more than once.

The British Medical Journal published a study on the effectiveness of Dr. Oz's medical advice.  It was determined that 51 percent of his recommendations were NOT backed by scientific rationale. 

During a Senate hearing in June of 2014 on consumer protection, Senator Claire McCaskill stated that Dr. Oz's segments on weight loss products that are later cited in advertisements, intentional or not, are guilty of perpetuating these scams.
One product that Dr. Oz was promoting was Green Coffee Bean Extract.  This was found to have no weight loss benefits. The paid study was found to be bogus and Applied Food Sciences agreed to pay a settlement of $3.5 million.

Dr. Oz's image and quotes have been used in many weight loss product SCAMS!  

Dr. Oz  has created "OzWatch" as a way for viewers to report these scams.  Over 35,000 complaints have been received which have resulted in 600 cease and desist letters.

Dr. Oz on OWN...good advice!
Do Not Believe Dr. Oz!

The message that I want to share and that you need to be aware of,  is that many weight loss products that seem to be endorsed by Dr. OZ are NOT.  They are SCAMS.  Even those products that Dr. Oz does recommend are not backed by scientific evidence.  There is no proof that it works as in the case of Green Coffee Bean Extract.  There were no weight loss benefits.  

I know that millions of people love Dr. Oz,
but an endorsement of a weight loss product by Dr. Oz means nothing!

In fact, an endorsement by Dr. Oz is probably created as a way to SCAM you.  As far as I can determine, a Dr. Oz endorsement is either unfounded if it is real, or it is a fabricated SCAM (that Dr. Oz has no part of).  

Either way, when it comes to weight loss product endorsements, for your own sake, do not believe Dr. Oz.

Thank you for reading, my friends.  I wish you much success on your weight loss journey.

Kindest Regards,
