It looks like Dr Oz has decided to ignore the latest vitamin supplement study.

No surprise there. Since when has Oz ever let science and reason trump his own personal medical religion.

Indeed. Makes me wonder if he’s in the supplement business.

Well he is certainly in the business of promoting them if only to keep the ratings of his show up. I am not sure if he has an actual investments in the supplement industry.

If he’s being paid to tout them it works the same way and it’s a conflict of interest, IMO. He’s probably pocketing more cash than the average investor.

I look askance at what any celebrity-seeking, self-promoting, so-called experts have to say.

As a fabrication of our own consciousness, our assignations of meaning are no less “real”, but since humans and the fabrications of our consciousness are routinely fraught with error, it makes sense, to me, to, sometimes, question such fabrications.
