In this transcript No2, Dr Oz Green Coffee Beans story is how he interviews some audience members to see how they are going with their experiment and describes that some audience members took a placebo (fake pill), to see if the results were any different between each group
Let’s first talk about what a “Control Group” is. When you conduct experiments with people in them, it is always good to have a test subject that you can compare your results with. The group that you compare your results on is normally called a “Control Group”. They are used to compare against the group that took the product that they are testing. The Control Group does not take the product or changes their habits in any way. This way they can compare different body types and ages against the same age and body types of the people that actually took the product that they are testing.
