Prof Tim Noakes: Will Academic ‘Mobsters’ Finally Silence Him?

Prof Tim Noakes: Will Academic ‘Mobsters’ Finally Silence Him?

How did a dietitian with a business to protect get the might of a South African state body to prosecute world-renowned scientist Prof Tim Noakes? That question is hanging in the ether.

The Health Profession’s Council of South Africa (HPCSA) has appealed its committee’s comprehensive not-guilty verdict for Noakes. The appeal concluded in Pretoria on February 23, 2018. Appeal Committee chair, advocate Justice Mogotsi, will rule before the end of March.

The HPCSA charged Noakes with unprofessional conduct for a single tweet on February 4, 2014. In it, he said that good first foods for infants are LCHF (low-carb, high-fat). Johannesburg dietitian Claire Julsing Strydom reported Noakes to the HPCSA. She claimed that the tweet claiming was potentially “life-threatening”.

What a fascinating read this article is. Considering no-one was, or potentially, harmed from the Tweet that Prof Tim Noakes made, it is quite interesting to the extent that the HPCSA is going regarding this case!
