Dr. Influence part deux

Someone asked if we had Red Palm Oil today.  'I think so' I replied.  As I was walking her to where it ought to be I was explaining that I know I've ordered it in the past but have had it go out of date due to nobody buying it, so I wasn't sure if we currently had any.  On the way there she told me that it was on Dr. Oz today and that it's the next best thing since sliced bread ... lowers your cholesterol, blah, blah, blah.

We still had a couple, but as I feared, their expiration date had passed.  Normally, I wouldn't have planned on ordering any more at this point, BUT since the good Doctor himself has endorsed it, I have to bring in some more.  And as if you couldn't guess, we had a couple more people also looking for Red Palm Oil today as well.  What a coincidence.

I don't watch this guy's show, but it seems like he's pretty much casting a bunch of nets into the nutritional world and seeing what comes in with the tide.  Sure, I think Red Palm Oil is pretty good stuff (as proof, the pic over there is the one I personally have at my place), but even a broken clock is right twice a day.

Ah, good ol' Dr. Oz. Some people shout at their TVs during hockey games (especially up here in Canada). I get rowdy when I see Dr. Oz on TV. Although I do have to hand it to him - he's inviting more and more "controversial" guests. Even if he disagrees with everything they say, at least they're on there, getting exposure (e.g. Taubes, and most recently the author of Wheat Belly).

Interestingly, my number one most visited post is: "Dr. Oz and the Paleo Diet" (

And my most visited post is the original Dr. Influence. Ah well.

As an update, we didn't receive the Red Palm Oil as the warehouse ran out of it right away. Shocker.
