Diets in Review - Find the Right Diet for You

Obesogens on The Dr. Oz Show

Show will re-air on Tuesday, December 28, 2010.

Tune in this Tuesday, September 21 to The Dr. Oz Show and learn about the hidden world of obesogens.

On the show, Dr. Oz investigates a new concept called obesogens, which are chemicals that are found in many of the foods we eat and are strongly linked to obesity.

Obesogen is a term that was originally coined by an University of California-Irvine professor who described how these chemical compounds, which are foreign to the body, can disrupt the body’s homeostasis and metabolism of fat thereby making the accumulation of fat easier.

The idea of obesogens is explored in The New American Diet by Stephen Perrine and Heather Hurlock. But obesogens are not just limited to food. Researchers who are investigating this concept have also found these culprits hidden in our household products and other items we use every day.

i used to like dr oz when he appeared on oprah because he is a great source of a wide variety of information. but i find his daytime talk show really annoying and way to game showish. it also seems very grade-schoolish in the way he presents a lot of the info with all the games he has the audience play etc. my boyfriend walked into the room and thought i was watching that old show with monty hall "let's make a deal". i feel there is a place for a show like this but let's bring it back to an adult format and not show gaming and grade schoolish please.
