A scathing and long overdue article about the daily BS being spewed on Oprah’s show. This is a detailed list of the Best of Oprah quackery. The first to be examined is the bizarre daily ritual performed by Suzanne Somers. With Oprah by her side, declaring her a pioneer, she blabbed on air about the massive amount of vitamins she consumes daily as well as injecting herself with hormones in private places. And that’s just for starters.
Somers says it’s mainstream doctors who need to get their facts straight. “The problem is that our medical schools do not teach this,” she said in a February interview with NEWSWEEK. She believes doctors, scientists and the media are all in the pocket of the pharmaceutical industry. “Billions are spent on marketing drugs, and these companies also support academic research.” Free from these entanglements, Somers can see things clearly. “I have spent thousands of hours on this. I’ve written 18 books on health. I know my stuff.”
In case you were wondering, yes, they do get around to discussing Oprah’s endorsement of “The Secret”.
