Vitamin K - Atkins Diet

It has been of concern to me that some people I know are not supposed to eat vegetables because vitamin K encourages clotting.  I knew that.  I thought it was a good thing because it means people don't bleed to death from a cut.
But it turns out people all over the place are taking blood thinner.  People are encouraged to take low-dosage aspirin to help protect again blood clots.
If I ever am told not to eat vegetables, my diet will be out the window unless I try to get all my fiber through supplements.  I'm not sure if fiber supplements have have vitamin K or not.  I guess I should check.
Something else to wonder about.
