  • Dr. Oz (A medical doctor) learns something new

    It's amazing how this is news to a doctor.

    Whole Grain Wheat Bread is NOT Wholesome or Healthy

    I love watching a professional learn what I knew already... Now just have to convince the CW dietitian sister...

      So apparently Dr. Oz (a board certified physician) had previously been recommending "candy bars" to his patients for their "good health"

        It would have been better if they had given them a sandwich rather than plain bread. The butter etc would probably have reduced the glucose spike somewhat, which is what the fats and nuts in the bar probably did. Not the most scientific of tests

          I can think of a lot of things that could have been changed to mitigate the results. But then they wouldn't have answered the question of whether bread raises blood glucose more than a candy bar or not.

            Starch is always more glycemic than sugar, dunno why people are continually shocked by this.

              Even more so compared with sugar mixed with fat.

                Just shows he should be ignored.

                  But if the information is valid, relevant and as close to the truth that we may know to be true....shouldn't we at least give it an honest "hear them out"?

                    Wish he'd have had a third group eating bacon. Then we'd have something to show doubters.

                      And his shows are the only source of information? Are your saying that without Dr. Oz we would die immediately from malnutrition, cretinism and other causes?

                        He's ignorant on health and diet, he follows/promotes marketable/lucrative trends that are not healthful, his show is 95% marketable entertainment garbage. The 5% of "valid" info WE have already known for years - though he is always shocked ( or acts shocked) at this 'new' information.

                        His audience can't discern the valid info from the garbage and remember the garbage they found most entertaining.

                        The demonstrations he does are lame but serve the purpose of entertainment for the audience.

                        He 'educates' this adoring/unquestioning audience with he's own ignorance and false information.

                        So it's an entertainment show targeted at a specific demographic, the occasional fact is incidental.

                        So to answer your question directly : No.
