Dr Oz: GMOs July 21 2011
Dr Oz’s show on July 21, 2011 is about Genetically Modified Foods or GMO’s. 80% of Doctor Oz’s audience said that they would not purchase food marked as being Genetically Modified, but the only problem is that food companies are not required to write this on their packaging! The only way that you can be guaranteed that your food does not contain any GMO ingredients is by buying only Organic Foods. So what are the potential positives of genetically engineering our food supply? People argue that it can make food cost less, while making the produce more hearty and resistant to diseases and potentially you could even decrease the amount of pesticides used. However, the dangers of GMO’s include things like organ damage, increase in allergies in the population, decreased fertility and pesticide resistance. Genetically Modified Foods have already been banned in 5 countries across Europe including Austria, Hungary, Luxembourg, France and Greece. I think that at the very least, consumers have the right to know when food manufacturers are using genetically modified ingredients in their products, and that the US government should make it mandatory that they label their foods as such.

Dr Oz: Green Clay Mask
Doctor Oz also spoke on his July 21, 2011 show about Uncovering Buried Beauty Secrets. For example, the Mayan Civilization makes a Green Clay Face Mask out of Green Clay or Kaolin Clay, rose water, aloe vera and essential oils, which improves your circulation, cleanses and tones. In Ancient Greece, they do Olive Oil Hair Masks to smooth and condition their hair before they shower. And In Ancient Egypt, they bathed in milk and honey because milk helps to exfoliate your skin, while honey is a great moisturizer.
