Hey! I'm back, finally. Lotsa stuff piling up. No time for sentence subjects. Must get on with it:

The Atkins diet is banned by a hospital in England, with a senior dietitian there explaining that "There is no evidence to suggest that the Atkins Diet has any medical benefits" (in fact, the NY Post reminds us, the possible side effects include death). The hospital ban was provoked by a British panel of experts calling the diet 'pseudo-science', though there's a sidebar story about the big "conflict of interest" in the chair receiving money from flour concerns. No, really! Meanwhile, here in the US, there's no such thing as a conflict of interest - as long as your interest is meat and dairy!
