Dr. Oz offered to answer people’s most pressing health and diet questions via Twitter. They could be different from what he thought they were.

Some Of The Questions He Got
I started all 16 of your miracle weight loss cures. Should I be worried that my pancreas just fell out?
Kavin Senapathy (@ksenapathy):
How does is feel to personally contribute to America’s decline in critical-thinking skills?
Ryen Smorczewski (@Smorz7IU):
I just got my flu shot, when can I expect to develop autism?
Jennifer Gunter (@DrJenGunter):
Can you go an entire show without saying the words “miracle,” “toxin,” and belly fat?”
Amid Chaudari (@AmitsSciMed):
Dear Dr. Oz, simple q: What percent of the advice you give on your show would you trust yourself? Or is that too scientific?
Chris Scholtz (@ScholtzC):
Name specific toxins removed by a detox that is not removed by your liver/kidneys? What studies have you published on this?
Colby Vorland (@nutsci):
You’ve told us to eat low-carb, low-fat, paleo, and vegan diets. I’ve been eating them all daily – why am I gaining so much weight?
Greg Hinson (@ackdoc):
Which disease kills more people? Ebola or Mercola?
Will you take responsibility for the scientifically debunked and inaccurate “miracles” you tout on your show for ratings?
Leah McGrath, RD (@LeahMcGrathRD):
I find your shows more scary to watch than horror movies —is this normal?
Kevin Folta (@kevinfolta):
“First do no harm”. Does promoting quack cure-alls and diets, while trashing good medicine and technology do harm?
Derek Henkels (@derekhenkels):
People seem to criticize you for promoting miracle cures. It seems to happen a lot. Why don’t you invent a miracle cure for that?
My personal favorite comes from Andrew Kniss (@WyoWeeds):
I just read that my new detox regimen might be toxic. Can you recommend a detoxification to detoxify my toxins?
Remember, Ask Dr Oz!
Head over to Twitter and ask “America’s doctor” what you always wanted to know! Here’s what at this point was most pressing on my mind.
