Dr. Oz and complete Senate hearing links
« on: June 18, 2014, 05:06:48 PM »

Got this today. Oz is a fraud.


Dr. Oz and complete Senate hearing links

Why do our broadcast stations and cable companies run programs like Dr. Oz?

Why hasn't the Competition Bureau here in Canada gone after the claims made on his shows?

The FTC has won a number of lawsuits against scam artists that have appeared on Dr. Oz's shows over the years.

Our Competition Bureau has done nothing.

Dr. Oz' fraud accomplice cracked down by FTC: 3.5 million $

Green Coffee Bean Manufacturer Settles FTC Charges of Pushing its Product Based on Results of “Seriously Flawed” Weight-Loss Study

Applied Food Sciences, Inc. Will Pay $3.5 Million and Must Substantiate Future Claims


For Release
September 8, 2014

    Health Claims

A Texas-based company, Applied Food Sciences, Inc. (AFS), has settled Federal Trade Commission charges that it used the results of a flawed study to make baseless weight-loss claims about its green coffee extract to retailers, who repeated those claims in marketing finished products to consumers.

The FTC complaint alleges the study was so hopelessly flawed that no reliable conclusions could be drawn from it. The flawed study, which purported to show that the product causes “substantial weight and fat loss,” was later touted on The Dr. Oz Show.

The FTC’s settlement with Applied Food Sciences, Inc. (AFS), which sells a green coffee ingredient used in dietary supplements and foods, requires the company to pay $3.5 million, and to have scientific substantiation for any future weight-loss claims it makes, including at least two adequate and well-controlled human clinical tests.

“Applied Food Sciences knew or should have known that this botched study didn’t prove anything,” said Jessica Rich, Director of the FTC’s Bureau of Consumer Protection. “In publicizing the results, it helped fuel the green coffee phenomenon.”

According to the FTC’s complaint, in 2010, Austin, Texas-based AFS paid researchers in India to conduct a clinical trial on overweight adults to test whether Green Coffee Antioxidant (GCA), a dietary supplement containing green coffee extract, reduced body weight and body fat.

The FTC charges that the study’s lead investigator repeatedly altered the weights and other key measurements of the subjects, changed the length of the trial, and misstated which subjects were taking the placebo or GCA during the trial. When the lead investigator was unable to get the study published, the FTC says that AFS hired researchers Joe Vinson and Bryan Burnham at the University of Scranton to rewrite it. Despite receiving conflicting data, Vinson, Burnham, and AFS never verified the authenticity of the information used in the study, according to the complaint.

Despite the study’s flaws, AFS used it to falsely claim that GCA caused consumers to lose 17.7 pounds, 10.5 percent of body weight, and 16 percent of body fat with or without diet and exercise, in 22 weeks, the complaint alleges.

Although AFS played no part in featuring its study on The Dr. Oz Show, it took advantage of the publicity afterwards by issuing a press release highlighting the show. The release claimed that study subjects lost weight “without diet or exercise,” even though subjects in the study were instructed to restrict their diet and increase their exercise, the FTC contends.

The proposed order settling the FTC’s charges bars AFS from misrepresenting any aspect of a test or study related to the products it sells, and prohibits the company from providing anyone else with the means of falsely advertising, labeling, promoting, or using purported substantiation material in marketing their own products.

The order further requires AFS to notify trade customers of the FTC’s conclusion that the company lacked reasonable scientific support for the weight-loss and fat-loss claims it made. Finally, the proposed order requires AFS to pay $3.5 million.

Information for Consumers

The FTC advises consumers to carefully evaluate advertising claims for weight-loss products. For more information, see the FTC’s guidance for consumers of products and services advertised for Weight Loss & Fitness.

The Commission vote authorizing the staff to file the complaint and proposed stipulated final order was 5-0. The complaint and order were filed in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Texas, Austin Division. The proposed order is subject to court approval.

The FTC is a member of the National Prevention Council, which provides coordination and leadership at the federal level regarding prevention, wellness, and health promotion practices.  The National Prevention Strategy, released June 16, 2011, aims to guide our nation in the most effective and achievable means for improving health and well-being. This case advances the National Prevention Strategy’s goal of increasing the number of Americans who are healthy at every stage of life.

NOTE: The Commission files a complaint when it has “reason to believe” that the law has been or is being violated and it appears to the Commission that a proceeding is in the public interest. Stipulated orders have the force of law when approved and signed by the District Court judge.

The Federal Trade Commission works for consumers to prevent fraudulent, deceptive, and unfair business practices and to provide information to help spot, stop, and avoid them. To file a complaint in English or Spanish, visit the FTC’s online Complaint Assistant or call 1-877-FTC-HELP (1-877-382-4357). The FTC enters complaints into Consumer Sentinel, a secure, online database available to more than 2,000 civil and criminal law enforcement agencies in the U.S. and abroad. The FTC’s website provides free information on a variety of consumer topics. Like the FTC on Facebook, follow us on Twitter, and subscribe to press releases for the latest FTC news and resources.

Fight the fraudster Dr. Mehmet Oz! UNITE!

Doctor Oz is the most influential doctor in America.

Healthcare professionals know first-hand that this influence is harming patients.

Dr. Oz has an unprecedented platform to share important, accurate medical information to millions of people. However, he often uses this platform to promote unproven and sometimes dangerous medical therapies. While he was recently "grilled" by Congress over his support of bogus medical treatments, he continues to mislead the public.

People often ask: What's the harm? This isn't the first time sensationalist health claims have been promoted in the media. But doctors and other healthcare providers struggle daily to help patients who have been misled by Dr. Oz and the quacks to which he gives a platform.

As medical professionals we are coming together to tell Dr. Oz, organized medicine, and the public about the real harms we are witnessing.
LET'S SHARE OUR STORIES

DoctorsInOz is in the process of collecting and organizing the many first-hand accounts of patients being misled by false medical information in the mainstream media. Together we can raise awareness, hold the media accountable, and spark real change.

Are you a doctor or other healthcare professional who has witnessed patients being misled by bogus medical information? Tell us your experiences now by emailing stories@doctorsinoz.com.

DELIVERING THE MESSAGE


Once these stories have been collected and organized, we will present them to Dr. Oz himself, the media outlets who host him, organized medicine groups such as the AMA, and the public.

We will demand a thoughtful response and meaningful change.

With your permission, we may also share some of these stories on this website. If you desire, your experiences can be presented in a way that protects your identity, but we ask for enough information to ensure we are sharing honest accounts. We promise to present your stories as accurately and fairly as possible.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS


Where can I find more information about the false medical information Dr. Oz has promoted?

The following are articles from reputable sources. We had no involvement in these articles and don't personally endorse every statement or claim made in them.

    New York Times
    Chicago Tribune
    Washington Post
    Los Angeles Times
    New Yorker
    Salon
    Science-Based Medicine
    Slate
    FDA letter to Dr. Oz


I'm a patient (or family member). Can I tell my story?

Absolutely! While we are specifically encouraging doctors and medical professionals to participate, anyone with first-hand experience can get involved.

When are you going to present these stories?

We are not providing a timeline at this moment because we want to ensure many voices are heard and the presentation is impactful.

Are you picking on Dr. Oz? Aren't there many other sources of misleading health information?

Dr. Oz is certainly not the only doctor to use the media to present bad information. However, his television show reaches millions of loyal viewers daily. Through Dr. Oz's hard work, his show is now an unprecedented platform for the immediate dissemination of medical information to the average American. Improving this platform is an important public health concern.

Aren't there bigger issues facing our healthcare system than a TV doctor?

There are many financial, political, and scientific issues challenging American healthcare. But we say that trust is the foundation of the doctor-patient relationship for good reason. Doctors can't help patients if patients won't trust us to provide balanced, evidence-based information. When a doctor uses the mainstream media to consistently promote unproven or misleading medical claims, the public's trust in doctors will inevitably erode.

Are you trying to stifle free speech?

We are not asking for Dr. Oz to be taken off the air or for him to be banned from promoting what he believes in. However, free speech works because various people can publicly disagree and start a conversation. Furthermore, we believe doctors have a responsibility to use their right to free speech prudently. The public trusts doctors to present information more carefully than the average TV personality.
