Oz would splash some water on Phil while declaring victory because that water was a homeopathic solution of sulfuric acid and Phil is melting.

Haha. I'd pay money to see that......fake Monopoly money, that is.

I'd offer to pay in homeopathic money. Since it's so diluted I could pay $.00000000000000000001 and it should be enough to cover the whole shindig. Smartass

Excuse me, I'm making perfect sense. You're just not keeping up.

I would say Dr. Oz is worse because he openly supports not only "aura therapy" during his own surgery procedure, but homeopathy and crystal therapy as well.

My Youtube channel if anyone is interested.

I assume death is not an option?

I can't choose between those two - both are equally awful. Undecided

RE: Dr Phil or Dr Oz? Who's worse?
As a medical student, I find dr Oz's issue far more worrying. Psychotherapy is difficult to measure scientifically and as long as a mental illness doesn't explicitly necessitate medication (such as schizophrenia, serious bipolar disorder, etc.) most therapies are somewhat effective - even just having someone to talk to is a great help in depression. However, when it comes to illnesses whose treatment is greatly affected by how early it's detected - malignant tumours are the first that come to mind, but heart failure, COPD, and most other chronic diseases have a better prognosis the sooner they're diagnosed - it's extremely important for non-professionals to notice if something is wrong and seek professional help first instead of going to these "miracle doctors" or homeopathy charlatans. When scammers like Oz make propaganda supporting "alternative" medicine (I find the term nonsensical, as medicine is a science and there's no "alternative" chemistry or physics either), they're putting a strain on health budget, as people reach professional help later since they first go for homeopathy and only visit a doctor when that doesn't make them better. By that time, what was an early-stage tumour which would have been laughably easy and cheap to remove surgically (most likely leading to a full recovery) has metastases, thus is basically incurable and buying an extra few months through cutting-edge chemotherapy is horrendously expensive. Every dollar/euro this charlatan makes causes twice as much damage - once to the gullible idiot who bought the cancer-cure-of-the-day medicine and one for the state that has to pay for the more expensive therapy, disability pension and has lost workforce who would've been able to work for 10+ years.
