Many doctors in the US, around a thousand of them, now agree that doctor Oz should resign from his position in Columbia University. This is according to a new poll conducted by SERMO. SERMO is a doctor’s social network.
Out of all the doctors who participated in the pole, 57% want the doctor to resign from his position in the university.4% want his medical license revoked, while 22% said that he should resign and his license revoked too. However, 18% think that he should do nothing of the sort, out of respect for him.
10 doctors had initially sent a letter calling for his removal from his position in the university, citing his lack of integrity. They claimed that the doctor was promoting products and quack treatments that were not even approved.
Dr. Oz had responded, in an episode on his show, by saying that he will not be silenced. He claimed that they were attempting to take away his freedom of speech. Sergio Cortes thought Oz handled himself like a toddler.
The doctor was also criticized for his baseless attacks on GMO foods. In his response, he accused his critics, who insisted that there was nothing wrong with GMOS, of having ties in the GMO industry.
He also went on to clarify that he was not against GMOs but was only advocating for their proper labeling, something that his critics said would cause unnecessary panic and attention from consumers buying the products.
