Atkins’ health scare


Atkins diet author home after cardiac arrest

He says his cardiac arrest is not related to his high-protein, low-carb diet, but rather to cardiomyopathy, a non-coronary condition. “I want the public to know the truth, not every condition affecting the heart comes from a blockage. A controlled carbohydrate lifestyle really prevents risk factors for heart disease,” said Atkins.

Oh, by the way, in case you hadn’t heard: Atkins has never had a single peer-reviewed article published. Interesting for a doctor in any field, eh?
