Tim Noakes HPCSA hearing live.

This is one hell of an important case. The same thing was tried on Dr Annika Dahlqvist a few years ago in Sweden for recommending a low carb diet to diabetics and over weight people, after two years of grief Annika won her case. See Dr. Malcolm Kendrick's view here. 

"Now, I have been aware that there has been a movement towards a high fat low carb diet (HFLC) going on in Sweden for some years. This has been led recently by the heroic Dr Annika Dahlqvist, a General Practitioner who had been advising her diabetic patients to eat a low carb high fat diet (LCHF).

She was, of course, attacked by the idiots…sorry experts:

‘In 2007, the controversy began when two dieticians pointed out to Sweden’s National Board of Health and Welfare that LCHF dietary advice recommended to diabetic patients by general practitioner Dr Annika Dahlqvist was not compatible with either scientific evidence or conventional practice. However, following a report by diabetologist Dr Christian Berne, Dahlqvist was cleared.’

Cleared of what, exactly? Advising diabetic patients not to eat sugar. The mere fact that anyone could be dragged in front of the authorities for advising this just shows had completely mad the world of dietary advice has become. How entrenched the idiotic anti-fat dogma now is. How utterly divorced from reality and science."

I'm on the edge of my seat. I've such respect for Dr Noakes, and thus high hopes for this ending up being good press for him, and for us LCHF'ers in general.

Hi Wendy - thanks for your comment. There is a lot of people watching this - blogs, twitter and all have been and will continue to be busy.

We all in our own way continue to spread the good news that is LCHF and how we have each found the improvement to health and well-being it has given us.

All the best Jan
