I am writing to ask you to address the continued promotion and dissemination of misleading—and potentially life-threatening—medical advice for pregnant women on The Dr. Oz Show.
Mehmet Oz, more popularly known as Dr. Oz on his daytime television talk show, purports to give his audience health tips and advice to improve their lives. But for years Oz has earned a reputation for dealing in bad science and New Age myth, sometimes with dangerous results.
In a segment on his March 13 show, Oz stated “one of the common questions I get asked is should I worry about mercury in tuna? … The answer is yes.”
The answer is no.
A story this week on NBCnews.com about the state of the seafood industry is packed with sensationalism and hyperbole, yet absent much of the real science, facts and figures that drive actual sustainability.
The latest edition of the New York Times Well Blog highlights blogger Tara Parker-Pope’s unwillingness to accept the current state of science about seafood, a trait seen all too often in myriad environmental activist groups. These groups have no qualms about scaring people away from nourishing foods and thereby negatively impacting child development when the facts don’t conform to their larger pollution agenda.
This week the Environmental Working Group (EWG) and Mercury Policy Project (MMP) continue a tradition of embarrassingly out-of-step public proclamations.

Dear Mr. Delaney,
I am writing to address editorial concerns with your online article, “The mercury level in your tuna is rising.”
Sometimes infographics are funny. Sometimes they are enlightening. Sometimes they’re just plain wrong and make the people who promote them look… um… what’s the word… ignorant. Right, that’s it ignorant.
Real nutrition experts are clear when they urge Americans to eat more lean, nutrient-dense foods like canned tuna to jump-start New Year’s Resolutions. But Prevention magazine is doing just the opposite for its readers by promoting out of step messages about canned tuna that are sure to confuse and unnecessarily concern. Thanks Prevention.
