"In life there's some things that are predictable, there's some things that aren't," says Dr. Oz. "This is one of those events that I think it will be beneficial with very low side effects. We've got 130 million of these little vials out there to help people with. Let's take advantage of it."
During this hour long special in front of a live studio audience, Dr. Oz also gives tips on preventing and handling illnesses as well as ways to maintain general healthy living.
