Oprah Winfrey Fights Back Newsweek Claims

Oprah Winfrey has opened up about the article that was written in Newsweek suggesting that she abuses her influence promoting health “cures” that are dangerous and ineffective.

Winfrey released the following statement touching on the topic of the article.

"For 23 years, my show has presented thousands of topics that reflect the human experience, including doctors' medical advice and personal health stories that have prompted conversations between our audience members and their health care providers," Winfrey says in her statement.

"I trust the viewers, and I know that they are smart and discerning enough to seek out medical opinions to determine what may be best for them."

Celebrity guests like Jenny McCarthy and Suzanne Somers have offered debatable medical advice such as taking up to 60 supplements a day to fight aging.
