I asked her this very question. Here is the response:
--- The ad hominem attack against Dr. Atkins is a set-off for my ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥-detector. If his diet is so bad, why argue against him as an individual, why not argue against his ideas? My ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ detector sent me straight to wikipedia, which had a couple of corrections to the FUD (fear, uncertainty, and doubt) that quote was trying to spread. He died at age 73, well within the expected range (average for white male in year of his death = 75) for his population, from causes completely unrelated to his diet. I'm not sure what diet, if any, he actually followed.
Hope this helps Steve.
