You know you're doing something right when Monsanto sends its thugs after you. But what I don't get is this: how can these clowns not realize that their mafia tactics are broadcasting their deeply corrupt nature to the entire world? They've got a lot of money on the line, so that tends to cloud their judgement I suppose.
(I touched on this in my Monday post, but I had to tell you more!)
Their latest move is to go after Dr. Oz:
First, watch these videos and you'll see why Monsanto is on attack, you will love this guys — the truth is presented so clearly, woohoo Dr. Oz!!!
More from Natural News:
Dr. Oz should be given a Congressional medal of some kind for his willingness to expose the truth about glyphosate on national television. In a recent episode that went viral, Dr. Oz discussed the toxicity of the biotech industry's favorite pesticide “glyphosate” — a dangerous chemical that even the World Health Organization now admits likely causes cancer.
In response to this episode, the so-called “Monsanto Mafia” went berserk with all their usual character assassination tactics, and now they've come up with a contrived plot — a campaign of intimidation and character smearing — to try to silence Dr. Oz by destroying his credibility.
A letter signed by ten doctors — all of whom have financial ties to industry — calls for Columbia University to force Dr. Oz to resign from the university's Department of Surgery. (Source)
Do I believe everything Dr. Oz says is spot-on, or that we should blindly follow all the advice he shares on TV?
Of course not (I ask you ALL the time around here not to blindly follow anyone), but he certainly seems to be coming along in his views and helping people to think beyond what's “normal”. Read my post from a while back, The Ignorance of Dr. Oz, where I rant about his misunderstanding on the issue of saturated fats — although hopefully he has come around more on that issue by now, too!
They're also attempting to roast Dr. Oz because he's promoting alternative treatment options and homeopathy!!!
There were — and still are — plenty of reasons to be skeptical about Oz's medical advice. Oz has long been a proponent of homeopathy, an alternative therapy, despite the fact that it defies the basic laws of science and has been shown in numerous studies to be useless. (Source)
Oh really? I'm sure Joette Calabrese could give us hundreds of stories of people helped via homeopathy!
Check out this one:
“I feel strongly,” Oz said, “that in the West we have come to believe that medicine offers all the solutions, and so we no longer play the proactive role we should be playing.” (Source)
No wonder they don't like him. We wouldn't want people avoiding medicine now would we?! (Please forgive my sarcasm.)
Here's an excerpt from the letter written by the doctors to Columbia University:
Dr. Oz has repeatedly shown disdain for science and for evidence-based medicine, as well as baseless and relentless opposition to the genetic engineering of food crops. Worst of all, he has manifested an egregious lack of integrity by promoting quack treatments and cures in the interest of personal financial gain. (Source)
That got them a short but quite sweet reply. Columbia University replied to Dr. Miller:
Dear Dr. Miller et al,
As I am sure you understand and appreciate, Columbia is committed to the principle of academic freedom and to upholding faculty members' freedom of expression for statements they make in public discussion.

Well, what do you think about all of this? Please share in the comments, and also share this post with those you know need to hear it!
- Oz claimed some of the doctors who have accused him of conflict of interest have a conflict of interest themselves surrounding GMO. He ticked off the names of some of the letter signers and pointed to their own ties to industries involved with GMO’s. (Source)
