    What an inflammatory and hyperbolic article; media propaganda at its finest.

    I know nothing of Atkins or his condition, but the article clearly states that his obesity and heart condition was a result of cardiomyopathy.

    The information used to form the article was from some veagan society that was against Atkin's health plans.

    Not quite acurate journalism if you ask me.
