#TinyTipTues 32: Dr. Oz Attacks Organic Foods in TIME Magazine

This post may contain affiliate links. Read full disclosure here.

Have you heard about this yet? Please tell me you have. Dr. Oz had a 5-page editorial in TIME magazine last week in which he completely attacks organic foods, farmer’s markets, and organic farms, and calls those who choose to utilize those avenues of sourcing their food as being “elitist” and “snooty” and “snobs.” Even though, just recently on his show, he was touting the health benefits of organic foods because they contain much smaller amounts of pesticide residue on them. Can you believe this guy? I stopped listening to him a long time ago, well before he had his own show, but this is definitely a new low, even for him. I’m left wondering who has bought him off, because he’s definitely sold out to someone!

Dear Dr. Oz, Why Are You Attacking Organic Food?

In other news, my Blogiversary Giveaway Celebration is still going strong, and we have 3 great giveaways up this week that will be ending soon, so I wanted to give you a recap of those. Remember that all my giveaways have a daily tweet option, to help you increase your chances of winning something green and eco-friendly!

  • SmartKlean Laundry Ball – What makes your laundry routine more green than using natural, eco-friendly detergent? How about not using any detergent at all! Check this out, because you gotta see it to believe it. :)
  • Woolzies Dryer Balls – A great compliment to your non-detergent laundry ball, is a set of these handmade, wool dryer balls to replace your fabric softener and dryer sheets! They cut down drying time and eliminate static as well.
  • Pretty Mommies Skin Care – For pregnant and nursing women, skin care products are a very important consideration, since most commercial skin care lines contain harsh, harmful chemicals. This is the first line created specifically for pregnant and nursing women, but is great for just about anyone!

    Dr. Oz is terribly irresponsible!!! Earlier this year he told everyone that Apple Juice had Arsenic in it! While that is TRUE, he made it sound like certain producers of apple juice were adding it to their juice when in fact it happens while the apple is GROWING!
    Apples, like rice, absorb many of the poisons and chemicals that are in the ground and will have a higher toxicity rate.

    I thinks this article is merely a ploy to get more people to watch his show!

    I had seen the Dr. Oz story on the Today show, or the teaser, but didn’t actually get to see it. How sad that he would write such a scathing review of organic foods, especially with the type of following that he has. I have to say that I have happened upon his tv show a few times recently and it seems like it is more of an ad for the latest fad “x” instead of an informative show.

      Yes, Heather! You’re absolutely right, his shows seems to be a platform for the latest fads to launch and advertise from. So sad, but that’s television! 😉
