See what questions
a doctor would ask.
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. The man was on the diet for 21/2 years during which time his cholesterol level nearly doubled and he had to undergo angioplasty for a severely blocked artery. He believes that the Atkins diet was the cause of his problems and he feels that the advertising deceives people about the possible risks.
