Sunday Meeting - How Dr. Oz Got It So Wrong: Not All Food is Created Equal

Curt Collier, Leader

Tod Whitaker Presides


In a December Time Magazine issue, respected physician and television personality Dr. Mehmet Oz argued that “food snobs” were hurting vegetable eating in American households by raising their noses at canned spinach and frozen carrots.

Dr. Oz to a certain extent rightly argues that the nutritional difference between fresh and fresh frozen vegetables is negligible, and thus one didn’t need to go to a farmers market to eat well. This may be usually true if one only considers the nutritional content of food. However, nutritional bang for the buck is far from the only reason why you should be eating locally and sustainably grown food. By perpetuating the myth that all food is created equal, Dr. Oz is actually championing practices that may result in poorer, not better health. Leader Collier discusses why you should be eating food purchased from farmers markets and what foods never to buy in your local grocery store.
