More bad publicity for the Atkins diet. Apparently Atkins himself was obese when he died, and had a history of heart disease. His wife says: "I have been assured by my husband's physicians that my husband's health problems late in life were completely unrelated to his diet or any diet." Right. It's just a coincidence. Or it's all genetic. Or whatever.
My recommendation: Atkins is great if you want to lose some weight, but please don't stay on it forever.
