    Why is the PURE Garcinia Cambogia web page being displayed when the company in the story is from San Diego and is known as Miracle Garcinia (Tarr)?
    PURE is a direct competitor of Miracle and yes, I looked it up on the internet.
    It's nice to see news/media programs using the issues from one company and passing it off as the issue of another company.
    What happened to reporting Who, What, Where, When and Why instead of sensationalizing a mixed up story. WAKE UP AMERICA! Don't be fooled by creative reporting, demand objective reporting!!!

    Its been years since i really sat down to watch Dr Oz. I was slightly annoyed he didnt discuss the product, he only talked about his face beinv misused! Why is that Dr? Im sure there is more to the story. I feel bad for the employees of the company he Harrassed. Maybe he should have offered them a job rather than being rude and pushy to possibly say something that may hurt their employment. Dr plz talk about products not ur face! Ive seen enough.
