Understandably, this has created a hubbub within the ovarian cancer community and has spurred The Ovarian Cancer National Alliance to contact Dr. Oz and ask the producers to provide the studies and the sources of the information supporting the claims made.
Here is their response:
In summary, the Alliance cannot support any of the claims as follows:
- Endive - animal and human studies need to be conducted
- Onions - studies are needed to further evaluate this association
- Fish - data conflict at this time re fish-based Omega 3 fatty acids*
- Tomatoes - few studies have indicated a clear link
