    Apparently your curiosity didn't extend to reading what was just above the pictures on the web site.

    Let me help you:

    "It's hard to believe Robert Atkins weighed 258 pounds when he died last April, as the Wall Street
    Journal contended Tuesday. Last February, just a couple of months before his death, I had dinner
    with the diet doctor at a French restaurant on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, and was most
    struck by how frail he seemed. He wasn't thin, but it was hard to see his physique exactly because
    it was the day after a big blizzard and he was wearing a thick sweater. Atkins ordered fish, went
    without bread or potatoes, and had cappuccino with cream. He did say something about wanting to
    take off a few pounds. But we're talking three, not 50. These photos were taken for our story on
    February 24, about two months before Atkins's April 17 death. Does he look as if he's 60 pounds
    overweight to you?"

    HTH

    Let me guess. You support pernicious PETA and the wacko groups they support and the people who
    distributed Atkins' medical records and the other wackos who want to ban foi gras in California and
    the PCRM "we'll say anything" commandoes for a veggie-only world? Would that pretty much sum it up?

    I clicked on these URL's below and they're an amazing mishmash of puzzling misinterpretation,
    biblical tomfoolery, outright construction, bizarre unscientific conflations, and utterly
    flawed logic.

    Otherwise, the colors were pretty.

    Insider trading. As though it were that glossingly superficial. If people have the expectation that
    their medical records will be published, they're less likely to be completely forthcoming with their
    doctors. Less forthcoming, less effective medical treatment. Less effective medical treatment, more
    premature deaths. Sure. Just like insider trading.

    > In medicine / pain / death .. though .. it .. is .. acceptable ..

    It is acceptable to publish Atkins' medical records? Is it acceptable to publish yours? If yes, why
    haven't they been published? If not, why not?

    Looks like the argument that Atkins' records should be published because he urged people to a
    certain dietary regimen hits you pretty squarely as well. You preach vegetarianism and should be
    your own best example. Where are *your* medical records to document the healthful quality of the
    dietary regimen? Where are the medical records of those vicious liars from PCRM who advocate
    vegetarianism? Doesn't look like others are willingly offering their medical records, does it?
    Wonder why? But it's ok to publish Atkins' because you fringies disagree with his assertions.
    Very ethical.

    Go to the Chung school of cryptic, meaningless one-liners? Lose the double-dots and write sentences.
    You'll look less incoherent and maybe convince somebody of something.

    Saying that humans are vegetarians by nature can and has been demonstrated to be irrevocably wrong.
    Dentition, digestive system, metabolic functions, enzymatic utility, vitamin and amino acid needs
    all point to omnivorous evolution. Our closest primate relatives are omnivorous. Our anthropological
    history is omnivorous.

    So what's detrimental and to whom?

    Your information isn't. And that's *not* funny.

    Better if there were facts to do that.
