Drs. Oz and Roizen: Find fat burners and muscle builders in your fridge

Beware of “magic” pills that contain dimethylamylamine, or DMAA. They claim to increase fat-burning and muscle-building, and to enhance your performance.

DMAA is particularly dangerous when used with caffeine. At least five deaths have been reported.
