President Donald Trump announced his intent May 4 to appoint a number of individuals — including controversial healthcare celebrity Mehmet Oz, MD — to the President's Council on Sports, Fitness and Nutrition for a two year term.
Here are five ways Dr. Oz makes a troubling pick, according to Vox.

1. Before he launched his TV show nearly 10 years ago, Dr. Oz was a researcher and cardiothoracic surgeon. However, in a number of his show's episodes, he has preached on behalf of homeopathy, failed diet supplements and discredited GMO studies, Vox notes.
