Just saw this a few minutes ago. Apparently, a report has been released stating that Dr. Atkins was obese at the time of his death.
People close to him have said that his weight gain and heart problems were not related to diet. I guess I can believe that.
But the interesting thing is who gave this report to the media. Apparently, it was the Physician's Committee for Responsible Medicine. That's right--a group associated with PETA.
Should be interesting to see what comes of this.
