Mehmet Oz, M.D., has been blasted again by two critics:

• Benjamin Mazer, a third-year medical student at the University of Rochester, is trying to enlist medical associations to combat the potential negative impact on public health of what he calls Oz's "pseudo health advice." In a recent interview, he described widespread concern expressed by physicians about the harm they see happen day-to-day with their patients. [Meet the medical student who wants to bring down Dr. Oz. Vox, Oct 12, 2014]

• Joe Schwarcz, who directs McGill University's Office for Science and Society, has debunked Oz's darmatic attack on an herbicide designed to kill weeds in corn and soy fields without harming the crops.

Got off my usual eating routine and am paying for it with constipation. Hate when that happens.

I guessed wrong, too, remembering the kid that cut off his stuck arm while hiking in Utah. He said he drank his pee.

While at the website, I noticed the asparagus question. When an ex-girlfriend said she couldn't smell the pee odor, I wondered why not. Now I know!

If you were dying of thirst, would it be OK to drink your urine?

I guessed wrong.  How about you?

Yes, we all need a little bit of salt. I still try to watch my intake.

Comment by Idaho Spud on August 14, 2014 at 10:56am

Too little salt is probably bad for you.  A study of 100,000 people showed that those that consumed 3 to 6 grams a day were healthier than those the consumed less than that, as well as more.

That sounds great, Randall. I hope the Summer heat doesn't hold you back.

I love to walk. Just plain simple walking. I'm getting in about 8 miles a day, 6 on the golf course (est.). I don't care what Mark Twain says!

It's finally Spring! That means emerging from my basement exercise regimen. No more weights, boxing, walking in circles for 6 months. I can get my exercise by gardening, golfing, jogging/walking/hiking, etc.--all in the great outdoors. Yippee!!

G.C.: I left a comment on that "article" at the food group. Thanks.
