Editors’ Apology
Setting the Record Straight on Nathan Pritikin


In Angela Starks’ article “The Skinny on Fats” in the August issue of Satya, Nathan Pritikin’s low fat diet was discussed and the following comment made: “Sadly, he took his own life when his realized his Spartan regime was not working.” There is no factual basis to this speculation and the Satya staff and Angela Starks regrets printing it. After a long struggle with leukemia Nathan Pritikin took his own life. During his lifetime, he made a very important contribution to the understanding of how diet affects health. Satya apologizes for any offense, confusion or harm this error caused.
