Zany Dr. Oz Rumored to Launch Magazine

Dr. Oz — America’s favorite wacky medical professional — is rumored to be launching a magazine. The New York Post reports that Oz is partnering with Hearst to debut a glossy later this year.

While both sides refused to comment on the plans, a source told the Post that a contract was “about 90 percent there.”

According to Oz, if you subscribe to the title and — at least once a month — rub the cover on your buttocks, you will lower your cholesterol.*

 

* — This, like various other Oz statements, has not been verified by factual evidence.
