Mods, please check out that Dr Atkins died several days after having a heart attack! You seem to be rather intent on leaving unbalanced information here. Don't you think that this at least should be known about a cardiologist guru who promoted, and got very rich from, a high-fat diet??
No No heart attack. He had cardiomyopathy, probably caused by a virus. According to Wikipedia: "Nine days prior to his death, Atkins fell and hit his head on an icy New York sidewalk. At New York's Weill Cornell Medical Center, where he was admitted on April 8, he underwent surgery to remove a blood clot from his brain but went into a coma and died from complications. He spent nine days in intensive care before dying on April 17, 2003" -Mod/factchecker
