The nutritional supplements industry has been rapidly growing the past two decades. However, what many people don’t realize is that supplements have only been proven helpful when extreme deficiency is involved (which much less common the developed world). Unfortunately, because the industry is not regulated well, the public is at risk of taking something that can cause their bodies serious harm.
This has not stopped Dr. Oz from plugging supplements on his show from various sponsors. And since the doctor was recently subpoenaed to congress to talk about this very issue, John Oliver decided to rip him and supplement industry a new one.
What do you think-
Is the pressure on Dr. Oz fair? Should the supplement industry be regulated by the FDA? Or should we cut this guy a break?
