Apparently, when it comes to medical advice some Congressmen have chosen to put their faith in television’s drama doctor in residence, Doc Oz, rather than medical professionals and researchers within their very own government agencies. Several months back Doc Oz decided to go after daytime tv numbers by revealing his startling discovery that certain fruit juices contained higher levels of arsenic than allowed by the FDA in drinking water; even though he was warned at the time by medical experts and the FDA that to do so would be irresponsible and misleading. Now, two Congressmen have introduced a bill that would require the FDA to create arsenic and lead standards for fruit juices. Inorganic and organic arsenic both occur naturally in the environment, with one key difference, only the inorganic form of arsenic is hazardous to humans. As a defense, Oz claimed at the time that he didn’t make the announcement to cause alarm, but rather to open a dialogue on the topic; reminiscent of the boy who cried wolf in order to get attention. Unfortunately, Oz was not ignored when he “cried wolf”, instead he created unnecessary fear among consumers, which has now led to the proposal of unnecessary legislation.
