Dr Oz: Aresnic in Chicken & Apple Juice

Dr. Oz’s biggest lifesaving hour in the history of his show has been emotional and powerful as he has changed the lives of many and saved several lives as well. He has shared important information that you need to know regarding colonoscopy screenings and your risk for suffering a stroke from having high blood pressure.

Dr Oz: Heart Attacks Women vs Men

Dr. Oz shared the startling reality that 435,000 Americans will suffer from heart attacks this year, and 267,000 of those people will die. One of Dr. Oz’s biggest priorities is to lower those numbers by helping people to recognize the huge differences when women experience heart attacks. For that reason, he asked Rosie O’Donnell to visit his show recently to talk about her heart attack in hopes of reaching women all across the world.

Like so many women, Rosie did not know what to look for in heart attack symptoms. She missed all of the subtle signs of a female heart attack, which are exhaustion, nausea and muscle pain. Dr. Oz wanted to be certain no other woman would make that same mistake, so they worked together to create a Warning Sign One Sheet that could fit in your purse. It was downloaded by millions of women all over the world in 113 countries.

Dr Oz: Heart Attack Show with Rosie O’Donnell Saved Lives

Heart Attacks in Women

Dr Oz is on a mission to save the lives of women by arming them with the information and warning signs unique to a female heart attack, which are different than they are for a man.

A woman named Katrina told Dr. Oz that his episode with Rosie O’Donnell about her heart attack literally saved her life. It was the morning after watching the show that she was not feeling quite right and she remembered what Rosie had described from her own heart attack.

Katrina knew that something was wrong, so her husband called 9-1-1 and the doctors told her she had a heart attack. Katrina said that had she not seen that show with Rosie, she might not be here right now.

Dr Oz: Heart Attack Warning Signs For Women

Dr. Oz said that the signs of a heart attack in women are very different than they are for men, so he had a list of warning signs for everyone to write down, carry with you and share with everyone you know.

  1. Chest, Jaw, Neck & Shoulder Pain – Pain that does not feel “typical,” but rather like you are being a squeezed a little bit.
  2. Nausea or Indigestion
  3. Unusual Fatigue
  4. Dizziness and/or Light-headedness
  5. Shortness of Breath – Dr. Oz said that this is the most important of all the warning signs!

Dr. Oz begged everyone to download his important wallet-sized card of all of the warning signs and share them with every woman in your life because he is on a mission to change and save lives.

Dr Oz: Tackling Important Food Safety Issues

Two issues that were of great concern to Dr. Oz were the amount of arsenic in chickens that we purchase as well as the level of arsenic in our apple juice. Since his initial show on this concern the FDA listened and arsenic has been removed from the food that chickens are being fed in the U.S. and there are much stricter guidelines in place as to the level of arsenic found in apple juice and rice.
