I have some medical advice that Dr. Oz might be interested in hearing about.
You see, it’s quite possible that his ears are burning these days and that might mean one of two things; one, he might need tympanometry which tests for ear infections or two, he might just need to log on to the internet because it would appear people are talking about him and he doesn’t know it.
To help him with this condition I wrote to his Executive Producer and of course his lawyer.
Have a look:

Dear Ms. Rich,
I am writing to draw your attention to an ongoing discussion about Dr. Oz’s January 26, 2010 segment on fish consumption and mercury happening on the internet and how ZoCo Productions has responded to our continued concerns. Yesterday TheTVNews.TV compared the ZoCo response to our concerns and History’s (A & E) response to our concerns about another seafood related story. As part of its daily video report, also available on YouTube, 2 minutes and 24 seconds into the webcast The Big Picture segment features host Jeff Grimshaw’s analysis, as transcribed below:
We continue to be concerned about the serious scientific inaccuracies featured in the segment and implore you to produce a new segment on fish consumption and mercury that features truly independent doctors and researchers who are experts, not activists, like; Dr. Joshua Cohen, PhD from the Tufts New England Medical Center; Dr. Nicholas Ralston, PhD from University of North Dakota Energy and Environmental Research Center; Dr. Joseph Hibbeln, MD from the National Institute of Health; Dr. Dariush Mozaffarian, MD from Harvard School of Public Health; Dr. Eric Rimm, D.Sc. from Harvard School of Public Health or Dr. Gary Myers, M.D. from University of Rochester Medical Center As you know we have already begun to correct the record with this YouTube video and will continue to share the independent science with interested parties.
