Let me start off by saying I'm not a Dr.Oz fan and I don't take his advice about most, but today he's talking about the dangers of taking laxatives for weight loss. Anyone watching?

I don't watch him, but I work in a clinic that does colonoscopies and have seen pictures of the inside of a colon that was dark, dark purple from overuse of laxatives. She could have had colon cancer and the doctor wouldn't have been able to see it....

The women said they hit a plateau and took the laxatives to get over it. When they saw results they upped how many they were taking to get more results. Very dangerous stuff

Talk about being held captive in your house. The real danger is though, that it causes horrible damage

I can't even imagine. I had a "friend" who was addicted to using them. She is a hot mess though.

 I guess I will never be really skinny, because I can't make myself throw up or take laxatives. That is just disgusting.

Oh man that definitely sounds dangerous!  Hopefully the info on the show helps someone from doing themselves major harm!
