The Professional Conduct Committee has heard the arguments from both Prof Tim Noakes and the HPCSA. Now they are left to make a decision which will undoubtedly rock the world of health and nutrition – no matter the outcome.
Never before has a registered medical professional been subjected to disciplinary proceedings because of a tweet. There are no guidelines which exist to regulate the use of social media. Such a hearing is unprecedented. However, Prof Noakes knew that he had to contest this charge with everything he had to give people around the world the opportunity to hear the truth.
