Mainstream Media Openly Displays Epic Ignorance Towards Dietary Supplements
Ignorance Peddled on TV Programmes in Exchange for Cheap Laughs
Oliver called Dr. Mehemt Oz an "old west travelling salesman," comparing him to snake oil salesmen from hundreds of years ago. His attack was based on Senate's grilling of Dr. Oz over claiming natural supplements like green coffee bean extract are miracle weight loss products.
Oliver made fun of the fact that Dr. Oz called Forskolin, a "miracle flower," ignoring the fact that plenty of pharmaceutical drugs are derived from plants, like Morphine and Codeine, which are derived from Opium flowers. Forskolin is derived from the root extract of Coleus Forskohlii, a plant in the mint family.
Lumen Naturals founder commented on the ignorance, saying "John Oliver really picks and chooses his facts in this case. He's really not that much different that Dr. Oz. They both use their TV programme to inform people about things. The big difference I see is that Dr. Oz informs Americans about health supplements, and toxins in foods, yet John Oliver is really nothing more than a late-night comical clown show trying to get a cheap laugh by spinning current events."
On his programme, Oliver compares Dr. Oz to the Wizard of Oz, however, the real man behind the curtain works for the FDA. The so-called ‘revolving door' at the FDA has put men like Michael R. Taylor, former Monsanto lawyer, in charge of policy.
Donahue said that John Oliver twisted words. "It's ok to twist words when you're a late night TV show host," he stated. "John Oliver claimed Dr. Oz called green coffee bean extract a magic pill, then played a clip of Dr. Oz saying scientists called it a magic bean. As far as I'm concerned, that was Dr. Oz paraphrasing someone else."
Oliver further went on to talk about a report on NPR claiming chlorogenic acid, the antioxidant in green coffee bean extract, didn't help mice lose weight. The same report goes on to say that mice aren't the same as humans, admitting the report is essentially irrelevant when it comes to weight loss in humans.
According to the Last Week Tonight episode, more people contacted the FDA to keep them away from regulating dietary supplements than did about the Vietnam war. Oliver took the chance to demonize Mel Gibson for appearing in a PSA about the matter, yet little mention is made about celebrities appearing in PSAs about gun control, pro-abortion, or anti-bullying.
All-in-all, not a single mention about that fact that FDA indeed regulates pharmaceutical supplements, stamping their approval on massively over-prescribed drugs like statins, Xenical, and Worforin, which have been shown to lead to permanent organ failure, and even death.
Oliver accuses the health supplement industry of regulating itself, something he compares to the pornographic industry, yet OPEC, the organization responsible for self-regulating oil prices and manufacturing seems a more appropriate comparison.
The program continued on, showing deaths caused by Ephedra in the 90s. Ephedra has been used in Chinese traditional medicine for over 5,000 years and is still being widely used in the sports industry.
