Dr. Oz Dead or Alive? Death Hoax Debunked: The death news of Dr. Oz is trending on the web. But as per the reports he is not dead.

Oz and McGraw Addressed The ScamsĀ 

In the past, McGraw and Oz, usually known as “Dr. Phil” both addressed the unauthorized usage of their likeness and photo. In the month of February 2021, both talk show hosts telecasted episodes dedicated to informing watchers about the CBD oil and gummies scams. At the time of the episode of “Dr. Phil,”m McGraw asked OZ about the scam page that users were sent to after clicking links in text messages and ads.

In this reply, Oz stated, “I have never sold a CBD product, and surprisingly, there is not a single fact in the document you just read that was genuine.” He also indicated that he had not endorsed any such products. The reason why the “Dr. Oz is dead” assertion was tied in with the scammy Smilz CBD Gummies product page was due to the death hoax provided the misleading bait to direct the users to the fake product endorsement.

In the year 2018, Gupta also addressed the wrong claim that he had endorsed a CBD oil or gummies product, likely for a product other than Smilz CBD Gummie. He made a tweet regarding this issue which reads that “No, I have not launched a line of CBD products.”
