    Next Wednesday's Dr Oz show (Feb 17/10) should be interesting. They are doing a segment about exhaustion and an incurable virus that is contagious and could lead to cancer. I wonder if it is XMRV they are discussing?

    I'm about half asleep now, but I just want to clarify what Feb 17/10 means!!!

    Does that mean that Dr. Oz comes on on Feb 17 at 10:00???

    I know his show comes on at 2:00 PM where I live.

    I've heard him talk about exhaustion, etc. before and all the answer ends up being is that we need to exercise more and eat more fruits and vegetables, etc, I think he's turning into a diet doctor!!! LOL

    February 17, 2010. Everyone will have to check their local listings as time will vary depending on where you live.

    Dr Oz is a cardiac surgeon whose patients usually end up on his surgical table as a result of living a poor lifestyle. His mission is to get Americans, and, for that matter, anyone else listening, to take better care of their bodies. So yes, diet is definitely something he is very passionate about.

    Dear TigerLilea

    From looking at the Dr Oz preview view clip on wednesday entitled 'Wednesday on Dr. Oz
    Dr. Oz reveals the contagious virus that could be the reason you're exhausted', if one is very quick to press 'pause' on the internet video player at 0.12 elapsed one can see a group of individuals waiting to get their test results.

    They are holding little signs behind their backs (waiting to show the audience), and they read EBV.

    So no XMRV on this show it appears.

    I saw the Dr. Oz show episode on epstein-barr virus
    I think he did a good job

    and all I get are the Winter Olympics at 2p.m CST...

    Does anyone know if some cities are showing one thing, and
    others something else?

    May be a city-specific choice.

    EBV has been known to cause, especially, nasal and pharangeal
    cancers, and I just read on PubMed where lymphoma treatment
    is stymied because of EBV presence.

    I noticed that here in Vcr, BC the Dr Oz show is being shown at the same time but on a different Vcr channel while the Olympics are on.
