    Atkins has a major heart attack.

    Supposedly not diet related though.

    IMO I always thought that diet was stupid (I hope I don't stir any anger with fellow posters), maybe this will deter people from going on it. Just my $0.02.

    His health problems have nothing to do with the diet.

    His heart atack was due to a congenital problem, not due to arterial blockage.
    Squats work better than supplements.
    "You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei

    he is in his 70's.

    he not young.

    what was he like in younger life anyway? did he smoke, drink a lot etc? anyway people like edo etc do a more healthy ckd.

    mike fixx died yuong, it was not his running that did it. it was another aspect of his lifestyle.
