Atkins Diet Not a Defective Product

A Florida businessman who sued Atkins Nutritionals claiming that the Atkins diet "nearly killed me," had his suit thrown out by U.S. District Judge Denny Chin who ruled that the company's books and food products are not defective under the principles of products liability law and the Atkins diet merely consisted of advice and ideas.  The judge also noted that he has had success with his own much simpler diet of running more and eating less.  See Leon Fooksman's story in the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.
