Dr. Oz is not a reliable source of any kind of advice. He was a very competent heart surgeon, but since his meteoric rise on Oprah's coattails he's become little more than a corporate shill who's known for hawking useless products with little research to back them up. I have actually heard him say "Because it's natural, it's safe."
Avoid his advice.
