A real health concern ignored by publicity-seeking TV docs

And while Dr. Oz wastes his energies warning the public about the nonexistent dangers of apple juice, the CDC released troubling data on pediatric flu-related deaths between 2010 and 2011 in its Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report. The analysis found that there were 115 deaths from influenza in children under the age of 18 during the study period and, of the 74 children for whom vaccination information was available, 77 percent were found to have not been vaccinated against the virus.

So while Dr. Oz is busy talking about tiny amounts of arsenic which pose no adverse health effects he's compromising his medical responsibilities by neglecting to urge parents to get their children vaccinated against a potentially life-threatening disease. It's just an abomination, says ACSH's Dr. Gilbert Ross.
