Man feels deceived by Atkins diet

A 54 year old man is suing the promoters of the Atkins diet for a minimal amount but he wants their advertising to prominently mention the risks of the diet.

He believes that the Atkins diet was the cause of his problems and he feels that the advertising deceives people about the possible risks.
