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.
