THE Association of Dietetics in South Africa (ADSA) hopes you’ll believe it only wants to silence world-renowned Prof Tim Noakes for his views on butter, eggs, bacon and broccoli because he dared to express them on Twitter. With help from the Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA), ADSA is doing the very opposite of silencing him. The HPCSA ‘trial’ of Noakes that resumes in Cape Town in October has given him an international platform for dissemination of the growing body of scientific evidence in favour of low-carb, high-fat (LCHF). After the November 2015 session of the HPCSA hearing, ADSA issued a statement saying it is only going after him because of what he said on Twitter. (Click here to read ADSA in full.) Noakes’ lawyer, Adam Pike, of Pike Law, says that’s nonsense. Here he explains, why this case really is not about Twitter.
