More on Dr. Oz and Applegate
September 16, 2011, 1:26 pm
As we mentioned in yesterday’s post about the controversy around Dr. Oz and his insinuation that apple juice is poisoning our children with high levels of arsenic, video of segments from that episode seem to have disappeared from the “The Dr. Oz Show” website. (Episodes concerning “Foods That Keep You Regular” and “Warning Signs in Your Toilet” remain up, however.)
Excerpts from that show can still be seen on the piece from “Good Morning America” that preceded the face-off between Dr. Oz and Dr. Richard Besser. (Click on the link above to see GMA‘s excellent coverage.) Despite Oz’s contention that he’s not maintaining apple juice is poisoning children and that he would have no problem with his own kids drinking it, the alarmist tone he strikes when discussing the issue speaks for itself.
Yikes! I just noticed that the link on the “Dr. Oz Show” website labeled “Warning Signs in Your Toilet Part 1″ actually links to the beginning of his apple juice segment. Very strange.
[Addendum Sept. 18 11:40 am] The “Dr. Oz Show” website has now removed all links to its segment on arsenic and apple juice.
