Dr. Oz has a special guest today. Dr. Pimple Popper, Sandra Lee, will be on the show to dish about all those oozing, seeping, and globulus cysts she deals with every day. The show has seen a big following as fans love to watch what comes out of some huge masses and how people are so thankful. So what makes popping oozing cysts so watchable? A quick search on YouTube reveals thousands of videos showing people opening oozing pimples and larger globs of puss. If you are one of those people, who love seeing stuff coming out of the human body, then this show is for you.
With the recent craze of plant based meat products, one has to ask if these processed products are actually healthy. Dr. Oz decided to dive into this debate and offered one person a week long test. The subject was tested before and after. Amazingly, blood pressure went down the most. Some stats went up and some had no change. This had Dr. Oz in a bit of a pickle because he has always promoted eating non processed foods as they are linked to cancer. Plant based meats are processed a lot and are high in sodium. So what did Oz conclude?
Plant based meat is essentially no different than other processed foods and are loaded with sodium. These products do help in certain areas but are more harmful in others. YOu may be saving the planet but at the same time you could be damaging your health. There are no long term studies and those will give more answers in the future.
