Earlier this year and after Tim gave dietary advice regarding an infant on the internet. The president of Dietician SA, Claire Julsing-Strydom reported Tim and he is facing charges of unprofessional conduct, for encouraging a higher fat, lower carbohydrate diet for a toddler. The case was scheduled for two days back in June, but ended on the first day due to point of law legal argument and re-scheduled for November this year. This hearing will have a longer time frame, because Tims legal team say they need at least seven days to forward their argument on the benefits of a lower carb higher fat diet. Clearly Tims legal team are loaded for bear, they know how important this case is, it will have ramifications across the world.
Some may know of the case regarding Dr. Annika Dahlquist. Annika was subjected to the same third degree, for advising her diabetic and overweight patients, to follow a low carb higher fat diet. After two years the authorities agreed with Annika, and the bullying authorities lost the case, because no evidence could be presented to prove a low carb higher fat diet was dangerous.
My money is on Tim being exonerated. That being the case, it will be another nail in the coffin for the dietary stupidity doled out by the likes of the NHS, BDA, DUK etc. and countless dietary not fit for purpose organisations around the world.
This diet can no longer be defended by appeal to the authority of prestigious medical organisations or by rejecting clinical experience and a growing medical literature suggesting that the much-maligned low-carbohydrate, high-protein diet may have a salutary effect on the epidemics in question."
