You know you're washed up and worthless when an 8 year old schools your pathetic persona. DR Oz is the biggest idiot on daytime TV.

No kidding. I've watched a few of his shows while at the gym...he drives me batty with all his cleanses, pills and diets.. This man calls himself a doctor (yes, I know he's a dr) but my point is, the crap he's pushing isn't healthy and if we were to take every pill he suggests, we'd popping them for an hour a day.

The sad this about this guy is I think in the beginning, his intentions were good. But as time went by and the fame went to his head, his focus because money and fame and not the health of the people. His followers are damn loyal to his dribbles.....sad..very sad.

Although I agree with the sentiment and data in Coral's letter, and in the information in her videos (the GoGurt Berry Bikini Bottom one was adorable!) - it's pretty obvious that she isn't the author of the letter, and that her videos are 100% scripted and written by an adult. 8-year-old kids don't have that kind of vocabulary - which is evident in her videos, where she stumbles over difficult words and demonstrates that not only does she know what these words are - she can barely read them, and definitely can't pronounce them without coaching.

I am convinced that the information she presents is 100% dead on correct. I just really wish she had presented them in her own words. I think that would've been a much more profound message to Dr. Oz.

I get what Dr. Oz was trying to do though. He is trying to encourage lower income people to eat healthier. They'll certainly be healthier eating non-organic produce and meats than eating processed food. People on food stamps or working class can't afford organic. It's just a fact. Just the other day, I picked up a small amount of food at the grocery store---organic fruits, vegies and a few cuts of meat. My bill was $168 and I didn't even buy enough for a whole week. Well, I bought 3 cooking magazines so it was really $138. My girlfriend has two children and earns 34k per year. Her food budget is $50 on the weeks she has the kids and $30 on the weeks she doesn't have the kids. My cooking magazines were her food budget.

I agree. When you can't afford Organic, his tips can be helpful. But he reaches a pretty big audience.

He is doing more good than harm. Only 16% of the population earns over 75k. 50% earn less than 30k. The lower middle class earns between 30k to 75k. My girlfriend is in that last group and she can't afford organic. People at the top end of her economic group can afford organic, but they are more likely to chose to spend their money on other luxuries, like their children's education, retirement savings, healthcare, etc. (That's right, I said luxuries.) When you consider the economic statistics, Dr. Oz's nutrition tips are helpful for the majority of the population. A much smaller percentage of the population can afford organic----they are educated enough to know the importance of organic and are very unlikely to be wrongly swayed by Dr. Oz.

I think Dr. Oz's show's targetted demographic will benefit. The majority of his "loyal" viewers are going to be the ignorant masses, trailer trash, and other people of limited brain capacity, who don't know any better than to believe anything Dr. Oz says. Since these are the type of people who would normally consider Swanson's Mac&Cheese to be a food group - I'd say he did them a service.

Anyone else, wouldn't believe the tripe that comes out of his mouth anyway, so it's a wash with them.
