(NaturalNews) The contrived attacks on Doctor Oz backfired in spectacular fashion today as he took to the air to expose the convicted felons, frauds and hucksters — all doctors operating as corporate front men — who tried to silence him.

To confront the vicious attempts at defamation and slander against him, Doctor Oz invited celebrated integrative medicine expert Dr. Joel Fuhrman to appear on his show. (For background, Dr. Fuhrman earns a big thumbs up from Natural News for his passionate advocacy of holistic healing modalities and disease prevention expertise.)

Natural News was the first news organization to expose the sleazy biotech industry front group behind the attacks on Oz. Yesterday, Dr. Bob Arnot further supported our story in a CNN video report, relating that the attack on Oz was fabricated by “industry henchmen” who were attacking Oz over his advocacy of GMO labeling.

Dr. Fuhrman reveals Oz was targeted because he helps people need less medication

A sneak preview of the exchange between Dr. Fuhrman and Dr. Oz is found in this video link from DoctorOz.com.

In this interview, Dr. Fuhrman lays out several key points that Natural News has been teaching and warning the public about for many years, saying that medical journals and government regulators “…are influenced by industry standards, by pharmaceutical companies paying for, sponsoring or interpreting the research.”

Dr. Fuhrman also points out that Doctor Oz is targeted for attack precisely because he teaches people to need LESS medication and take care of their own health. “…[T]here is a lot of opposition to somebody attempting an approach to get people well, to lessen their dependence on medication,” he says. (In other words — and this is absolutely true — if you teach people how to be well and not need pharmaceuticals, you are an enemy of the pharmaceutical industry which will hire people to try to destroy you.)

Dr. Fuhrman also confirmed what Natural News first reported many days ago about the mainstream media’s utter abandonment of real journalism, saying the media’s reporting of the attacks on Oz was steeped in “…sloppy and even dangerous journalism, because they didn’t do their background checks, they didn’t know who these people were, they didn’t understand their agenda, and they reported a lot of things that were just not accurate.” He may even be referring to the Vox.com attack on Oz which was carried out by a vindictive, fact-averse journalist named Julia Belluz who is now strongly suspected of being on the payroll of the so-called “Monsanto Discredit Bureau.”

Both Doctor Oz and Dr. Fuhrman deserve tremendous support and applause for having the courage to stand up for the truth and call out the dishonest industry front men whose sleazy tactics resemble those of a criminal mafia, not a medical community. (Those attacking Oz are in no way his “peers” as was falsely reported by the media. They are the evil shadow of the dark side of medicine and biotech corporations…)

Speaking of sleaze, read about the American Council on Science and Health, a biotech industry front group led by a doctor with a felony criminal record of fraud against the U.S. government. Yes, this doctor was a key signer of the attack letter against Dr. Oz. Read more details about the sleazebag biotech shills in my “biotech mafia” article at this link.

Here’s a transcript of the exchange between Fuhrman and Oz. The full episode will be posted tomorrow on www.DoctorOz.com

Dr. Oz: My colleague, Dr. Joel Fuhrman, is here. So how would you evaluate what these doctors have said, and what do you think of them as individuals?

Dr. Fuhrman: Well, you know, it’s ugly, it’s ugly. Number one, they’re not representative of the medical profession. Number two, it’s not attack just against you; it’s attack against all physicians, all health professionals, all people who maybe don’t take a standard party line. I mean, much of what doctors do is based on logic, experience, good judgment, and we don’t necessarily have to support the most favored industry group of the day. So I think it’s very important that we recognize this as being anti-American, anti-freedom, anti the right to help people in the best way possible.

Dr. Oz: What’s disappointed you the most in all the hoopla that’s happened over the past couple of days?

Dr. Fuhrman: Well, it was very disappointing. First of all, the way that what the media did — to explode with it all over the place. It was sloppy and even dangerous journalism, because they didn’t do their background checks, they didn’t know who these people were, they didn’t understand their agenda, and they reported a lot of things that were just not accurate. And it’s all, you know, they attack first, ask questions later.

Dr. Oz: So, I’ve been criticized frequently for covering alternative medicine approaches on this show. Talking about things that are done in other parts of the world that aren’t conventionally done in this country. I think all of these things have been around for centuries. How do we look at and deal with the amount of intense criticism we get from some physicians about that decision?

Dr. Fuhrman: Yea, I think that, number one, we have to recognize that half of what doctors do in their regular practices are not supported by randomized, controlled trials. We do this out of — just because we’ve always done it a certain way. There are very narrow portions that are very well supported, and the first thing I learned in medical school — actually, the same medical school that you went to — in the first pharmacology course I took, was never forget that all drugs are toxic, they have very serious potential side effects, and always use lifestyle, natural, nutritional approaches as your first line of defense. Don’t do more harm. Protect people’s safety first. Get to the cause.

Dr. Oz: Our show’s also pressed hard on some broader controversial health issues, like for example, what’s happening in the environment. Yet I must say I’ve gotten a lot of pushback, not so much from physicians but actually the media on some of these stances.

Dr. Fuhrman: Well we recognize that whatever position you take you’re always going to hurt somebody else, in their pocket book, to a degree. It’s a strong industry power that effects government, effects health authorities’ decision making, like the American Diatetic Association, the American Heart Association, our government’s decisions, the medical profession, medical studies published in legitimate, high[ly] prestigious medical journals are influenced by industry standards, by pharmaceutical companies paying for, sponsoring or interpreting the research, and there is a lot of opposition to somebody attempting an approach to get people well, to lessen their dependence on medication, maybe the industry people that are attacking you right now. So I think we have to consider the context of the environment we live in.

Please send your support and thanks to Doctor Oz via his Facebook page, and let him know you’re very happy to see him standing up for himself against industry bullies and biotech charlatans. For the record, Doctor Oz openly supports GMO labeling because he believes consumers have the right to know what they’re eating.

Only a complete industry sellout would even disagree with such a commonsense position, it turns out.
