(Salon) – 2014 was not a great year for Dr. Oz. Not only was he berated by Sen. Claire McCaskill in a Senate subcommittee hearing for promoting pseudoscience as fact, he was also subject of a scientific article published in the prestigious British Medical Journal which proved that you can’t really trust anything the TV doctor says.
