Statement From The U.S. Army

Following the airing of The Dr. Oz Show on what happened to Special Agent Vanessa Guillen while stationed at Fort Hood, which aired September 29, 2020, we received the following statement from an Army spokesperson which takes issue with certain statements and opinions made by a guest on the show. The statements and opinions of our guests are their own, and are not a reflection of the opinions and position of The Dr Oz Show.


“The allegation that U.S. Army Soldiers do not have rights and protections in place with regards to sexual assault and sexual harassment made by a guest on your Sept. 29, 2020 show is completely false. There are a range of rights and protections that include, but are not limited to: official investigation, victim advocacy, special victim legal counsel, medical treatment, sexual assault forensic exam, counseling, and command intervention.  For more information please visit”

Will you ever feel comfortable in your own skin? That is, if you don't make an effort to protect it? Although 64% of adults do report wearing sunscreen when outside for prolonged periods of time, it turns out that only about 10% of people surveyed actually protect themselves daily, according to a recent review.

No matter what your skin tone is, unless you live in a cave with no sunlight, daily protection with either sunscreen, sunblock or protective clothing can not only protect you from developing sunburns (ouch!) but can significantly reduce your risk of developing skin cancer, particularly the deadliest type called melanoma. In addition, for those of you wanting to keep your youthful looks, daily sunscreen has been shown to reduce the development of wrinkles. A great teacher once told me that the best way to not have wrinkles is not to get them in the first place (think of how much money you can save on useless creams that claim to diminish wrinkles).
