Dr. Oz Talks about Robert Kennedy Jr. and the $100,000 Challenge

Dr OzNOTE: If YOU would like to speak to Robert Kennedy, Jr. about the $100,00 challenge, you're invited to an event in NYC on April 18th from 6:30 - 8:30pm. Perhaps Dr. Oz will attend?

This is a fund raiser for World Mercury Project, which is sponsoring the challenge.  We know the price is dear for most of us - but perhaps a family member would help you buy a ticket  as an Easter or Passover or Autism Action month treat?  I know of one close friend whose brother - an AofA supporter - bought her a ticket. (Thanks, Nick Z!)  The event is at Tony Lyons' (Skyhorse Publishing's chief) home in New York City.

On March 13, 2017, the Idaho Statesman published, Does your child’s doctor check on these important issues? by Michael Roizen and Mehmet Oz, MD.

Dr. Oz’s well-known name immediately caught my eye.

The article was about what your doctor should be covering at your “well-child checkup.”  Roizen and Oz included suggestions from the American Academy of Pediatrics.

So what should doctors be doing at these visits?

The AAP advises: “It should cover everything from how much you read to your child, the risk of lead paint contamination in your home, hearing, dental care, physical and cognitive development to potential familial health problems such as elevated LDL (lousy) cholesterol.”

Roizen and Oz added more things doctors should talk to parents about:  pool safety, laundry pods, guns, obesity, and vaccines.

This was included at the end of the piece.

To do: Robert Kennedy Jr. and Robert De Niro promised $100,000 if you prove vaccines are safe. We spent a month reviewing every study on vaccine safety and interviewing 150 experts on all sides of the issue. Our conclusion: Vaccines aren’t perfectly safe, but the chance of significant disease-preventing benefit is more than 40,000 times the risk. That’s a pretty impressive degree of safety. That research is out there for everyone to look at and is summarized in our book “YOU: Raising a Child.” If you win the prize, please make a donation jointly in our and your names to the American Academy of Pediatrics!

This article bothered me for a lot of reasons. First of all, why was there no specific advice that parents and doctors look for the warning signs of AUTISM, something which affects one in every 68 children, one in every 42 boys?

Roizen and Oz purported to have spent a month “reviewing every study on vaccine safety.” Not only that, they also talked to “150 experts on all sides of the issue.”


While I don’t have the book they referenced, I have to ask if they looked at any of the top researchers included in Robert Kennedy’s book Thimerosal: Let the Science speak.  Did they really talk to the scientists who say vaccines aren’t safe? I personally know a number of the top experts who’ve conducted studies that raise serious concerns.

Did Roizen and Oz use the CDC’s 2004 MMR study as proof that the MMR is safe? One of the authors of that study, Dr. William Thompson, now says that this definitive research was a fraud. He and fellow scientists at the CDC were ordered to destroy evidence of a link between the MMR and autism.

What about all the research out of Denmark? If Roizen and Oz reviewed “every study,” they must have included the ones by Dr. Poul Thorsen

Thorsen supposedly exonerated vaccines (thimerosal) from a link to autism in his research, but as it turns out, he was also involved in defrauding the CDC of over a million dollars in research money. There’s a federal arrest warrant out on him. If Thorsen was one of the experts Roizen and Oz talked to, maybe they could let the feds know where he is currently. They would like to arrest him.

And it’s more than a little disingenuous for Roizen and Oz to claim that Kennedy’s $100,000 is just for proof that vaccines are safe. If they were interested in the truth, they’d have included this link

“The WMP will pay $100,000 to the first journalist, or other individual, who can find a peer-reviewed scientific study demonstrating that thimerosal is safe in the amounts contained in vaccines currently being administered to American children and pregnant women.”

Dr. Oz has been involved in this controversy for a long time.

In 2014, he interviewed Robert Kennedy and Dr. Mark Hyman about thimerosal in vaccines. I wrote about it for Age of Autism.

Video footage was shown that covered the history of thimerosal, a vaccine additive that's been around since the 1930s.  "A powerful preservative, it was originally added to make vaccines safer, preventing the growth of dangerous fungus and bacteria.  But in the 1990s, thimerosal came under fire, implicated as a possible cause in the skyrocketing rates of autism and other neurological disorders.  The reason?  Thimerosal contains a form of mercury--a potent neurotoxin.  The link between thimerosal and autism was ultimately discredited, but better safe than sorry, in 1999, the government and medical community agreed that thimerosal should reduced or cut from our vaccine supplies.  Since 2001, thimerosal has been eliminated from all vaccines in this country with the glaring exception of some flu shots. The EPA considers medical products containing thimerosal to be hazardous waste. So what is it still doing in your flu shot?"

Hyman: "It's a potent neurotoxin.  It's been linked to all sorts of neuro-developmental issues....  Any form of mercury is toxic.  There's no reason we should be putting it in our medical products. ...Our goal is to take it out of vaccines globally."

Oz then cited the statistic that "sixty-five percent of you have little trust in vaccines."  He said that this segment was about "restoring trust in vaccines." 

Oz had contacted the CDC to ask about "their role in taking thimerosal out of the multi-dose flu vaccines," ...and he gave their response: "The conclusion of the scientific community is clear that thimerosal-containing vaccines are safe and effective and do not represent a public health risk."

Kennedy however was adamant.  The CDC's response was not based on the science.  He had found 500 peer-reviewed studies and "virtually every one of them said that thimerosal is a potent neurotoxin that should not be in vaccines.

"We couldn't find a single, valid, plausible, scientific study that said that thimeorsal was safe.  So what we've said to CDC is, 'Show us the study.'   And they have not been able to show us the study."

Dr. Oz ended the show by advising his audience, "Pregnant women and babies and people over 65, you're at risk and you should ask for thimerosal-free vaccines, like the kind you find in a single dose."  For other people, he recommended the live virus nasal spray.

Oz is well-aware that Kennedy is focused on the use of mercury in vaccines. Three years ago he had him on his show, but in this Idaho Statesman article, it isn’t mentioned when he cited Kennedy.

If we go back further, we can find Oz very concerned about the exploding autism rate back in 2011.   In What Causes Autism, he said this.

Dr. Oz: “Every 15 minutes, a family hears a diagnosis they fear most: Your child is autistic. One in 110 children born in this country will have autism. Boys are hardest hit with a staggering one in 70. The big question: WHY?”

Watch the children in this video. They’re severe. No U.S. official has ever admitted a true increase in the autism rate, regardless of the dramatic leap in the rate.

So why aren’t the signs of autism even included in the “important issues” you should talk to your doctor about? How “staggering” is the current rate of one in 68/one in 42 boys to Dr. Oz?

Is Oz at all concerned that currently a child is diagnosed with autism every 11 minutes?

Finally, I’m stunned by Roizen and Oz’s suggestion at the end of the article:

If you win the prize, please make a donation jointly in our and your names to the American Academy of Pediatrics!”

NINE YEARS AGO Sharyl Attkisson reported on how much $$$$$ pharma gives the AAP.

The $100,000 offer from Kennedy and De Niro would be nothing to the AAP.

Attkisson said this:

CBS News has found these three have something more in common - strong financial ties to the industry whose products they promote and defend.

The vaccine industry gives millions to the Academy of Pediatrics for conferences, grants, medical education classes and even helped build their headquarters. The totals are kept secret, but public documents reveal bits and pieces.

  • A $342,000 payment from Wyeth, maker of the pneumococcal vaccine - which makes $2 billion a year in sales.
  • A $433,000 contribution from Merck, the same year the academy endorsed Merck's HPV vaccine - which made $1.5 billion a year in sales.
  • Another top donor: Sanofi Aventis, maker of 17 vaccines and a new five-in-one combo shot just added to the childhood vaccine schedule last month.

The fact that Roizen and Oz say nothing about the massive web of money ties between the AAP and the vaccine makers is a good indication that all the studies they looked at to determine that vaccine are safe were done at the behest of the pharmaceutical industry.  

Spinning the truth and omitting the uncomfortable facts will not make this issue go away.

Whatever one believes, if there is a risk, there is a choice. If you have informed consent, and you understand the contents of what you are putting into your body, then it is your decision as to what you want to do. There are millions of people that do not want to inject heavy metals into our bodies. We have a God given right to say " no thanks". If someone does not understand that, fine, go on with your life and leave other's alone. One more thing, Dr Oz is a cardiologist, he is not a nutritionist, pediatrician, oncologist, obstetrician or gynecologist. He is fed info in order to do his show.

I've always enjoyed watching this youtube clip of Dr. Oz from a few years ago. He is saying he will get his flu shot but his wife doesn't vaccinate their own children......

go Trump

The Dr. Oz show in 2011 is rather clear “prepared in advance” corporate vaccine propaganda.

He had a large audience of parents who could give “unfiltered first hand information” but he chose to run "clip after clip" of prepared endless crap which proves nothing ...

He provides the usual “study after study” that proves no link... and then states the Dr. Wakefield was a fraud.

He then goes on to the possibility of the mysterious Autism gene. I am sure the entire show was spliced together, no one is ever allowed to "speak live and in person" in regards to Autism issues.

That should change with the the President & RFK Jr. rather soon.


Because you are able to survive a man-made toxoid is not proof of safety or efficacy in view of those who have been permanently harmed or killed. Those who survive can expect to have a weakened immune system and become more vulnerable to disease and experience rash, seizures, bowel dysfunction, and learning disabilities to name a few, with none the wiser. The quality of human life forever tampered with lies and misinformation! A lose/lose proposition for all. This is a worldwide epidemic. You cannot prove a vaccine worked because you were able to survive. You can however prove the vaccine caused harm. Proof is proof! Absence of proof isn't proof of absence in my book.

Laura Hayes

I wonder if Dr. Oz has factored in the fact that when he sells his soul and chooses to perpetuate the vaccine propaganda, which in turn increases the medical fascism, that his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren will one day suffer from the evil in which he is now participating.

Dr. Oz, you reap what you sow. Better take a closer look at what you are sowing, as it will one day affect and harm your own. You won't be around forever to sign your family members' permanent Medical Exemptions, and one day, MEs won't even be accepted if this present tyranny continues.

Shame on you, Dr. Oz. I hope you find your moral backbone soon.

And I must comment on your willful exclusion of vaccine ingredients from the "Reduce Toxins" section on pg. 2 in the online excerpt of your book "YOU: Raising Your Child". In that brief paragraph, you warn against microwaving foods in plastic, and against using cosmetics and deodorants that contain phthalates. However, you missed the mark completely when you chose to omit the many known toxic and neurotoxic ingredients in vaccines, which are the earliest and most egregious assaults against fetuses, newborns, infants, toddlers, and children of all ages. Again, shame on you.

For anyone who wants some REAL wisdom and sage advice, read the late Dr. Robert Mendelsohn's "How to Raise a Healthy Child in Spite of Your Doctor". Now there was a man of great integrity paired with great intelligence and oodles of common sense! Dr. Oz needs a mentor like Dr. Mendelsohn, big time.


Why are none of the media doctors mocking the challenge stepping up and claiming the prize? Kennedy is putting his money where his mouth is, and his smack talking skeptics can't put ONE study where theirs is. Pathetic!


Once again, AoA brings together a variety of voices, views, names, along with facts & figures, and good links. BRAVO, AoA!.... But let's ask a question about Dr. Thorsen of Finland. The basic story is that he defrauded the U.S.Gov't through the CDC, involving more than $1Million, and that there is a Federal warrant out for his arrest. Isn't it also possible that he's being used as a sort of "false flag"? That he's being used by Pharma/FedGov/pro-vaxxers to discredit the so-called "anti-vaxxer" "movement"? Too often, I've seen persons such as Robert Kennedy referred to in the mass media as being an "anti-vaxxer". (I've heard Kennedy himself say he's NOT an "anti-vaxxer"!....)
Thanks again, AoA, for helping move the conversation forward in a positive, constructive manner!


It's one thing to be a brainwashed MD who really has no clue. Those people are not to be excused for their ignorance. But it is a whole other thing to be a doctor who knows, who hasn't vaccinated his own children, and who is betraying the public's trust by being a fake smiling profiteering mouthpiece for organizations that he knows damn well are criminals. Oz and his partner in crime, Roizen, are the lowest of the low.

Rebecca Lee

DrOz, you should be brave and retire. Be brave like Del Bigtree.


elevated cholesterol does not scare me nearly as much as mercury contamination in vaccines and dental fillings!


It's clear to me that Dr. Oz has been compromised. A while back, after he aired a segment on vaccines and a woman in the audience said she thought the metals in vaccines caused autism, suddenly there was a lot of online chatter even in online "medical" news website articles, that Dr. Oz was "a quack," and certain medical professionals actually tried to publicly discredit him by questioning his ability as a surgeon. It must have been a terrible time for Dr. Oz, who certainly didn't deserve that kind of treatment from his "peers."

Sadly, it appears likely that this new, reprehensible statement from Dr. Oz is Dr. Oz's way of kissing his enemies' asses to get them to back off from trying to destroy his ability to practice medicine and continue to host a TV show. Now Dr. Oz can be their best buddy again and re-enter the fold of his "respectable" peers, and even get pharma dollars from drug advertising commercials which will fund his TV show. Disgusting. Dollars, again, win the day. I've just lost every ounce of respect I had for Dr. Oz. He's been bought-- just like so many others. Wonder what his price was?
