Dr. Atkins said many years ago that a high-fat diet wasn't dangerous in and of itself, and now researchers have "discovered" that digestion (duh!) prevents the fat we eat from entering our bloodstream as fat - instead, the carbohydrates we eat raise insulin levels in our blood, and insulin is a fat-creating hormone! So he was right all along. Also, did you know that people who have their stomachs stapled are put on the Atkins diet afterward? They don't call it that, but if you look at the diet, that's exactly what it is!
