Regular readers of this blog will find it no surprise that I don't think much of Dr. Mehmet Oz.

This story contains profanity and language that some readers might find offensive. (CNN)They call her "Cardi Bardi, banging body / Spicy mami, hot tamale" -- and she's got an image to maintain. Cardi B would like for her 30 million Instagram followers to believe she's able to do that thanks in part to Teami, "all-natural loose leaf teas" that are sold online and endorsed by a growing chorus of high-profile celebrities, who echo some questionable health claims about the products.
