Research Assistance Please!

I'm looking for evidence that the Atkins Diet is bad for you.

By which i don't mean that "eating just meat and nothing else" is bad for you (well, duh), but that following the actual Atkins diet itself will cause you damage, or long-term health problems.

Oh, and by evidence, I mean actual evidence - a medical study or something vaguely similar, not just someone complaining that it doesn't follow the food pyramid or somesuch.

Honestly, if anyone knows of such a thing, I'd like to see it, just so that I have some idea that it's out there. I haven't been able to find anything along those lines, but I don't want to take the chance that I've just missed it.

Unbelievably, not only are they going to release Kill Bill as two separate DVDs, Quentin Tarantino seems to be actively in favour of them taking all of our money.

In this month's Empire he says "We'll have separate DVDs for Vols 1 and 2 and I'll do special stuff for each. Then we'll come up with a big version with them both together, but I won't repeat the special stuff I put on Vols 1 and 2... I might do some other little movie thing just to go on that special double feature version."

What's that Mr Tarantino? You want to charge us twice for the same material if we're interested in getting a decent set of extras?
