It looks like the AMA might be willing to take a stand on this. http://www.vox.com/2015/6/13/8773695/AMA-dr-oz
It’s a step in the right direction, but the AMA has no teeth.
The AMA could, however, issue public reprimands to doctors who act and speak unscientifically.
But the AMA has proven itself to be a paper tiger.
From the article:
The same month, Oz responded to his critics by accusing them of having conflicts of interest and defending his civil liberties. “I know I have irritated some potential allies,” he wrote in Time magazine. “No matter our disagreements, freedom of speech is the most fundamental right we have as Americans. We will not be silenced.”
No one is suggesting he be silenced, but the AMA also has a right to free speech and they should use it to reprimand irresponsible salesmen like “Dr.” Oz.
But will they actually do anything?
