    I think that Dr. Mercola does the same thing.

    The only weight loss strategy that will ever work is eating less and moving more. But as long as people continue to be lazy, people will continue to promote weight loss scams such as pills and diets.

    Seriously, I'm over Doctor Oz, what with his disingenuous pandering to his zaftig hag studio audience and promotion of endless supplements. I liked him better when he just talked about poop and discussed diseased organs.

    Dr Mercola has spent an entire career promoting health and wellness naturally, primarily through diet, nutition, and exercise, something most of his peers are woefully ignorant of. He came out of the pharmaceutical chronic sick care industry as a whistleblower on deadly drugs that were passed through cozy relationships with FDA.

    Yes, he sells a lot of branded supplements but none of them promote outrageous claims. He really only recommends a handful of antioxidants, omega 3 fats and enhanced vitamins; stressing the most important things for your health are a healthy diet and effective exercise.

    Cheap shot !
