Professor Tim Noakes laughs during a keynote address at the University of Johannesburg on October 22. He mockingly described his Mampara of the Week Award as the most important accolade of his career.
CAPE TOWN - The first day of a two-day Health Professions Council South Africa (HPCSA) hearing into the professional conduct of sports science expert Tim Noakes is under way in Cape Town.
The hearing looks into a complaint about Noakes allegedly giving dietary advice on social media.
The Association for Dietetics in SA laid the complaint with the health council.
It&39;s accusing Noakes of unprofessional conduct after he suggested a mother wean her baby with a low carb, high fat diet, via Twitter.
If found guilty, the medical doctor and UCT professor faces losing his right to practise.
