  • Controversial Dr. Oz Quotes
    By Health Blog on December 23, 2012 | 1 Comment1 Comment  Comments

    A recent editorial published in the Time magazine by the celebrity doctor Dr. Mehmet Oz has created some controversy throughout the health blogosphere. Dr. Oz was trying to convince readers of the magazine that the mainstream poisons in your supermarket are as good as organic or local farmers markets produce.

    Here’s a few Dr. Oz quotes from the controversial article..

    “Dispelling these myths — that boutique foods are good, supermarket foods are suspect and you have to spend a lot to eat well — is critical to improving our nation’s health. Organic food is great, it’s just not very democratic.”
    Dr Oz Quote calling organic food undemocratic

    The rise of foodie culture over the past decade has venerated all things small-batch, local-farm and organic — all with premium price tags. But let’s be clear: you don’t need to eat like the 1% to eat healthily.”
    Dr. Oz Quote comparing organic food eaters to the 1%ers

    “After several years of research and experience, I have come to an encouraging conclusion: the American food supply is abundant, nutritionally sound, affordable and, with a few simple considerations, comparable to the most elite organic diets. Save the cash; the 99% diet can be good for you.”
    Dr Oz Quote, again with the 99% and 1% comparisons!

    “There’s no question that free-range chickens and grass-fed, pasture-dwelling cows lead happier — if not appreciably longer — lives than animals raised on factory farms. They are also kept free of hormones and antibiotics and are less likely to carry communicable bacteria like E. coli, which are common on crowded feedlots. If these things are important to you and you have the money to spend, then by all means opt for pricier organic meats.”
    Dr. Oz Quotation making healthy food sound elitist.

    “But for the most part, it’s O.K. to skip the meat boutiques and the high-end butchers. Nutritionally, there is not much difference between, say, grass-fed beef and the feedlot variety.”
    Dr Oz Quote being vague.

    “We know more about the connection between food and health than ever before — down to the molecular level, actually. This has provided us the curious luxury of being fussy, even snooty, about what we eat, considering some foods, well, below our station. That’s silly. Food isn’t about cachet. It’s about nourishment, pleasure and the profound well-being that comes from the way meals draw us together.”
    Dr. Oz Quotes on the wonders of chemical filled foods.

  • Antibiotics and using them properly
    By Health Blog on August 18, 2009 | No Comments  Comments

    After so many researches the scientists came to know that the best way to treat the diseases caused due to bacteria and fungi is to introduce the substances from the bacteria in to our body and creating antibodies in our body that fight against the bacteria that are causing these diseases in reverse acting against them. Antibiotics are the substances that are produced by the organisms like bacteria, fungi to prevent the grown of the other organisms and eventually to kill them. Actually these are made in laboratories using some chemicals. These are very important medicines for controlling the once greatest problems like smallpox, chickenpox. The best known antibiotics are penicillin, amoxicillin, tetracycline etc.

    These work differently from each other against specific diseases. We should use them very carefully otherwise there will be great health problems involved in their introduction in to our body. Information on the usage, dosages, risks and precautions to use for the antibiotics are recommended to study and then we should use these antibiotics.


    Here are some of the guidelines for using the antibiotics of all kinds:

    • If you don’t know exactly how to use the antibiotic and what infections it is used for then please don’t use them.
    • Use only an antibiotic that is recommended for the infection you wish to treat.
    • Know the risks that are involved in using the antibiotic and take all the recommended precautions.
    • Use the antibiotic only in the recommended dosage, not more not less. The dose depends upon the illness and the age of the person for whom this is used.
    • Never use injections of antibiotics if taking them by mouth is likely to work as well. Inject only when necessary.
    • Keep using the antibiotics until the recommended or required number of days or for at least two days more after the fever and other signs of the infection goes away.
    • Don’t take these antibiotics in fewer amounts than recommended.
    • If the antibiotics causes any skin rashes or itching or difficulty in breathing then the person must stop using these antibiotics and contact the doctor.
    • Only use the antibiotics when the need is great.

    Don’t forget to follow these recommendations before using the antibiotics as this needs so much care.
