The case against Prof Tim Noakes at the Health Professions Council has been grinding away for some time, and will start up again later this year. I wasn’t paying close attention, until eventually, like the annoying buzzing of a fly against a window, the noise moved me to look closer. And I didn’t at all like what I found.
Let me be entirely clear: this is not about whether the fashionable Banting diet Noakes has been promoting is fabulous and life-saving; not half as good as it’s made out to be; or profoundly mistaken and possibly harmful.
Who is perpetrating this inquiry?
