Could Atkins Be Right?

Back off, doc: Atkins diet may be good for you
Study shows drop in pounds, cholesterol

Maybe it’s not a big fat lie, anyway. But no one ever said Atkins wasn’t effective in weight loss, and that weight loss doesn’t drop your cholesterol level. It does. No matter what its incarnation. But what is its effect on colon cancer? on coronary artery disease? on breast and prostate cancer?

That’s what I’m worried about. Dr. Atkins had an MI; so did the late Dave Thomas. Is weight loss worth the rest of your health?

We may find out the answer to at least one of these questions soon.

The author, Dan Haley, writes “…a yearlong study being sponsored by the National Institutes of Health. That experiment, being directed by Dr. Gary Foster of the University of Pennsylvania, will test the Atkins diet on 360 patients.”
