Dr Oz’s Health Scare: High Mercury
Dr Oz opened up about a personal health crisis he experienced: high levels of Mercury in his blood. The New York board of health even attempted to alert him to his personal health problem. He invited his physician, Dr Rebecca Kurth of Columbia University, to help explain what this means.
“Mercury ought to be on the radar of all Americans, especially people who eat in a heart healthy way and have one to two helpings of fish per week,” she said. That’s because Fish is the biggest source of Mercury in our diets.
