Millions of people turn to Dr. Mehmet Oz for the latest and best advice in health and wellness, but the famous doctor has been making headline news recently for questionable ethics and his colleagues at Columbia University even appealed to the board of education to revoke his position at the prestigious institution.

Now, after Columbia University released a statement about their decision to keep Dr. Oz as a staff member, new information has been leaked from emails he and his staff exchanged with Sony.

The email leaks from Sony give an insiders glimpse as to what motivates the show and Dr. Oz himself, and it doesn’t appear to have much to do with beneficial medical advice, and everything to do with image and earnings.

In one email Oz writes, “We should leverage the Sony-driven success of our TV show into other arenas where Sony thrives, like health hardware.”

Oz comes across as more of a business man than a doctor in the leaked emails according to Flavio Maluf, never mentioning any health benefits or risks associated with the products he is planning to advocate for, the bottom line for him seems to be money, not wellness.

As time goes on, we will see what Oz’s true motivations really are, and he will have to answer to the court of public opinion once all facts are released.

Ranch Owner Demands Killing Elk

In the 19th century, tule elk were once on the verge of extinction in their native California along the coastlines where the species used to roam in large numbers. The National Park Service then went to great lengths to bring them back.

Yet, last week, the NPS confirmed that their most recent census from 2012 to 2014 has revealed the deaths of approximately 250 elk that reside in the Point Reyes National Seashore fenced-in preserve.

The elk that died could have had access to water if they weren’t cut off by fencing. The reason the preserve exists is because dairy farmers insist that the free-roaming elk compete too much with their cattle for food and water and they kill free-roaming elk on the peninsula whenever the opportunity presents itself from

The National Park Service does allow commercial cattle owners to lease land on the peninsula with prioritized commercial grazing permits. As a result, cattle owners feel they are justified in reducing the herds that are not entirely fenced in and, in fact, are demanding that the NPS fence in all of the tule elk that consists of only approximately 300 to 500 animals at any given time.
