Dr. Oz has been under fire for remarks he's made about the agricultural industry's use of GMOs and pesticides like glyphosate (trade name: RoundUp).
Dr. Oz has made claims in the past that have drawn attention but this is different. An article on mintpressnews.com points out that-
While it’s far from the first time Dr. Oz has been criticized, the timing and authorship of the letter should raise suspicions about the motive. Released about a week after Oz’s attack on Monsanto aired nationwide, the letter has been extensively quoted in the media. Several of the letter’s authors have ties to the American Council on Science and Health, which U.S. Right to Know calls “a front group for the tobacco, agrichemical, fossil fuel, pharmaceutical and other industries.”
Dr. Henry Miller is a chief opponent of GMO labeling; of course he hates Dr. Oz!
Ethan Huff, a staff writer at naturalnews.com has a different take...
Not surprisingly, Dr. Miller has his own ax to grind being a slash-and-burn, drug-peddling quack doctor himself whose conventional, outmoded approaches to therapy are threatened by the information often presented on Dr. Oz's show. Dr. Miller is also a heavy proponent of genetically modified organisms (GMOs), having penned an op-ed letter to the San Francisco Chronicle back in 2012 opposing California's Proposition 37 GMO labeling bill.
Huff goes on to say this baseless attack by Dr. Miller comes as Dr. Oz has boldly drawn national attention to the glyphosate scam, warning his viewers that this prominent herbicide chemical, which is sprayed on factory farms, public parks and even people's yards, is potentially deadly.
Follow the Money: Meet Senator Claire McCaskill
Senator Claire McCaskill delivered a public rebuke for his alleged peddling of what was referred to routinely in the media as a “weight loss scam.”
Then, there is the concern raised in several media outlets that Senator McCaskill’s ire directed at Dr. Oz may have had less to do with GCBE, weight loss, or the customary penchant for titillation and hyperbole on TV- and more than meets the eye to do with his advocacy for GMO labeling. According to Sourcewatch.org, Senator McCaskill is among the prominent recipients of campaign finance support from Monsanto. That may not be directly relevant to this plot, but wherever you examine the Oz story, from root to leaf, the name that comes up even more often than Mehmet’s is: Monsanto.
Katz provides more perspective-
What, then, of Monsanto in the Oz-related turbulence of late? I have absolutely no idea if Monsanto-related provocations had anything to do with Senator McCaskill’s rebuke. But I must say that a highly publicized reprimand from a sitting U.S. Senator for a television segment about a weight loss supplement that is probably both safe and somewhat effective seems a remarkable instance of aiming a RPG at a gnat.
Follow The Money (Again)
In their "Controversy of the Day" feature, Sarah Morgan of GoKicker.com asks "Is Dr. Oz wrong to caution the public against GMOs?"
Last week, a bunch of doctors accused Dr. Oz of "promoting quack treatments." And honestly, it's not the first time people have said this kind of thing--one study found that about half of the advice he gives either has no evidence to back it up, or is completely contradicted by the evidence.
While I personally don't agree with everything the Dr. Oz says, I think that "half" is a very unfair (and unsubstantiated) statement.
But here's the real kicker in this article:
But this new complaint is a little different. The doctors who wrote last week's letter focused mainly on Dr. Oz's comments against genetically modified foods, also known as GMOs. And some of those doctors have, in the past, worked for a nonprofit group that supports GMOs, and has received money from Monsanto, a huge corporation that makes GMOs.
Dr. Oz, for his part, says he "will not be silenced," and he's "going to keep fighting for your right to know what's in your food."
Dr. Oz Replies
In a Time Magazine interview Dr. Oz made the following statement:
As a scientist, I am not that concerned about GMOs themselves, but I am worried about why they were created. Highly toxic herbicides would kill crops unless they were genetically modified, but with the genetic upgrade, these plants can be doused with much higher doses, with potential complications to the environment. The WHO believes that glyphosate is “probably a human carcinogen.” Perhaps we are all showing “disdain for science and evidence-based medicine,” but I would argue that unleashing these products creates a real-time experiment on the human species. Sure, we will eventually know if these pesticides are a problem, but at the expense of the pain and suffering and disease in real people. I owe my kids more. And so do you.

By J. Davis III
Tags: HEALING | HEALTHY FATS | REMEDIES
Recently, Doctor of Naturopathy, weight-loss expert and best-selling Amazon author Liz Swann Miller, creator of the Red Smoothie Detox Factor, revealed 2 of the secrets to easy, steady weight loss. Secrets the big food corporations do their best to hide from us.
Secret #1: Enjoy real food. Don’t fall for the lie that you have to deprive yourself to lose weight.
Secret #2: stop eating out. You will automatically eat less without even noticing.
Then start detoxing your body with tasty, nourishing smoothies that are just as easy on your wallet as they are easy to make.

Now prepare yourself for one of the biggest weight loss secrets there is. A secret that, when you use it properly, can transform your body and your health.
You probably know most of us eat too much processed food. What you may not know is that it’s full of toxic chemicals and substandard, dirt-cheap ingredients designed to make you eat more…and force you to gain weight.
Here’s how it works...
“That stuff is just a lot of calories your body can’t use,” Liz told me, “Some are poison. And all these foods are stripped of the anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatories that help your body detox. The result? Your body expends huge amounts of calories to eliminate some toxins—the rest, it stores in your fat to protect you. This is why most people are hungry all the time. They’re not getting energy they need.”
“So… what’s going on with me? Why am I losing weight but not going hungry?”
Liz paused, then dropped the bombshell.
Your body is designed to burn fat. You just have to let it.
“What? I thought we were designed to store fat?!?” We were Skyping and I was practically shouting. Then I heard Liz say…
What good is a fat reserve if you can’t burn it?
Liz continued: “You’re drinking smoothies packed with phytonutrients, anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatories that pull toxins out of you like a tractor beam. Allowing your body to burn those toxin-filled fat stores… and releasing tremendous amounts of stored energy.”
So that’s why I’m losing weight without going hungry.
