Dr Oz: Thyroid Guards & Thyroid Cancer
DR OZ FANS UPDATE: The recaps of this Dr Oz Show are now posted online. Here are the relevant links:

Last fall, Dr Oz warned us about how X-Rays and Mammograms can cause Thyroid Cancer, especially if people do not insist on having Thyroid Guards during these tests. If you missed this show, click here for the recap: Dr Oz Thyroid Cancer. Since Thyroid Cancer is the fastest growing cancer among women, this alarmed many people and a chain of e-mails went all around the country to warn friends and family members to ask for Thyroid Guards before getting X-Rays or Mammograms. Apparently, a group of doctors and dentists became angry with Dr Oz for giving such advice and even went so far as to say that Thyroid Guards are not necessary to prevent Thyroid Cancer. So, Dr Oz will talk with several of these doctors and dentists on The Doctor Oz Show on Thursday, April 14, 2011. I wonder what the final conclusion will be on this so-called Thyroid Guard Controversy. It seems to me that at the very minimum, Thyroid Guards cannot hurt, so why not ask for them as Dr Oz suggested on his original show?
Dr Oz: Cancer Preventing Foods
Dr Oz will also give a list of the Top 5 Cancer Preventing Foods on his show on April 14, 2011. Previously, Doctor Oz gave an Anti-Cancer Grocery List that included suggestions for vegetables, fruits, whole grains, proteins, herbs and spices that all fight Cancer (click here to get the full list: Dr Oz Anti-Cancer Grocery List). And he did another segment where he named the following foods as his 5 Cancer Preventing Foods: bok choy, cooked tomatoes, flounder, strawberries and artichokes (click here to read more about how these foods fight off Cancer: Dr Oz Cancer Fighting Foods). So it should be interesting to see Dr Oz’s new list of foods that prevent Cancer. In addition, Dr Oz will do a segment on some of the Wildest Alternative Health Therapies and Exotic Natural Remedies. Plus, Dr Oz will bring Geoffrey Zakarian, a judge on Food Network’s TV Show called Chopped, to do a healthy cooking competition. The last time that Dr Oz did a “cooking contest” was when he challenged three ladies to make healthy meals in 2 minutes with only the use of a microwave (click here to read the winning recipe: Dr Oz Microwave Recipes).
