Dr Oz: What Causes Body Odor?
What is the secret cause of body odor for women that has been mentioned on the show?

Road Testers Eileen and Dorothy were quick on the buzzer again, getting this answer right as well. They knew it was stress, which Dr Oz explained triggers the brain to have sweat glands release an odor.
Dr Oz: 5 Minute Deep Freeze
Dr Oz once featured a 5 Minute Deep Freeze on the show. What was this trick supposed to supercharge?
The Weight Loss Wonders were fastest, but they had the wrong answer. The Energy Boosters got it right. The answer was Metabolism.
Dr Oz added that a quick cold shower is another metabolism booster, because it stimulates fat burning in the neck.
Dr Oz: Lingonberry Longevity
What is Dr Oz’s favorite berry for longevity?
- Schizandra Berry
The Weight Loss Wonders finally got one right: the answer was Lingonberry.
Though Dr Oz said the berries used to be hard to find, their antioxidant benefits are now popping up in jams, juices, and many other products.
Dr Oz Show Number of Episodes
As a tiebreaker, Dr Oz asked the Weight Loss Wonders and the Energy Boosters one more question. How many episodes of The Dr Oz Show have been taped?
Do you have a guess? The answer is 554, which is a lot of hours of advice. The Weight Loss Wonders were closest to the answer, so they moved on to the final round.

Dr Oz Twitter: Sneezing After Eating
Dr Oz also took time to answer some of your Twitter questions. If you’ve ever wondered why you sneeze when you get full, that’s because stomach nerves are close to the nerves that make you sneeze. You can prevent it by eating less.

Dr Oz Twitter: Lycopene
One viewer said their daughter loves ketchup. Is there any benefit to getting all that lycopene in your diet?
According to Dr Oz, lycopene in ketchup is a great antioxidant. But you can get the benefits from Tomato Paste instead, which doesn’t have the sugar and sodium of ketchup.
