    Not only a victory for Tim, a victory for LCHF across the world. The truth is outing, the junk food big pharma payola is coming to an end!

    Type two diabetic-low carb diet (50 carbs per day) and two 500mg Metformin pills per day. Apart from diagnosis HbA1c almost 12-all HbA1c results none diabetic. For over eight years my diabetes medication has not changed. My weight has remained stable, I have suffered no ill effects from my diet whatsoever. Every blood test has proved, I took the right road to my diabetic salvation. For almost seven years, I have asked medical professionals and naysayers, how do I maintain non diabetic BG levels on two Metformin other than low carb ? The silence has been deafening !

    Any other outcome would have been a travesty

    Meanwhile it looks like Claire Julsing Strydom would be better served by consulting Tim Noakes about her diet  Rolling Eyes

    Yes!!!

    I was following Marika's tweets. This went right up to the wire, I was soooo afraid it would be like some of our Government Enquiries where a judge or Lord asked probing and intelligent questions, paid careful attention to the replies, and then came up with the conclusion the Government required.

    I just wonder what the fallout will be. For starters the Dark Forces will be livid and redouble their efforts to wreck our health for profit. There's been pretty much a press embargo on the story outside of Twitter and the Blogosphere, I wonder if the verdict will make it onto the BBC or the Guardian.

    "Tim Noakes found not guilty – of something or other

    Many years ago I started looking at research into cardiovascular disease. Almost as soon as I began my journey, I came to recognise that many facts I had been taught in medical school were plain wrong. This did not come as a great surprise. Anyone familiar with the history of scientific research will soon find out that widely established facts are often not ‘true’ at all. My mother still likes to tell me that when she was at school it was taught, with unshakeable confidence, that there are 48 human chromosomes. There are 46.

    In addition, it became clear that, not only were certain key facts wrong, there seemed to be a co-ordinated effort to attack anyone who dared to challenge them. One stand out example of such an attack was what happened to John Yudkin, the founder of the nutrition department at the University of London’s Queen Elizabeth College.

    He did not believe that saturated fat was to blame for heart disease, the idea at the centre of the diet-hypothesis. At the time, this theory was being relentlessly driven by Ancel Keys, and it had gained widespread acceptance amongst the scientific community. In 1972 Yudkin wrote the book ‘Pure white and deadly’ in which he outlined why sugar was the probable cause of heart disease, not fat(s). He was then ruthlessly attacked. As outlined by the Telegraph:

    ‘The British Sugar Bureau put out a press release dismissing Yudkin’s claims as “emotional assertions” and the World Sugar Research Organisation described his book as “science fiction”. When Yudkin sued, it printed a mealy-mouthed retraction, concluding: “Professor Yudkin recognises that we do not agree with [his] views and accepts that we are entitled to express our disagreement.”

    Yudkin was “uninvited” to international conferences. Others he organised were cancelled at the last minute, after pressure from sponsors, including, on one occasion, Coca-Cola. When he did contribute, papers he gave attacking sugar were omitted from publications. The British Nutrition Foundation, one of whose sponsors was Tate & Lyle, never invited anyone from Yudkin’s internationally acclaimed department to sit on its committees. Even Queen Elizabeth College reneged on a promise to allow the professor to use its research facilities when he retired in 1970 (to write Pure, White and Deadly). Only after a letter from Yudkin’s solicitor was he offered a small room in a separate building.

    “Can you wonder that one sometimes becomes quite despondent about whether it is worthwhile trying to do scientific research in matters of health?” he wrote. “The results may be of great importance in helping people to avoid disease, but you then find they are being misled by propaganda designed to support commercial interests in a way you thought only existed in bad B films.”

    And this “propaganda” didn’t just affect Yudkin. By the end of the Seventies, he had been so discredited that few scientists dared publish anything negative about sugar for fear of being similarly attacked. As a result, the low-fat industry, with its products laden with sugar, boomed.’

    Let us scroll forward some forty years or so, to Professor Tim Noakes. Regular readers of this blog will have heard of Tim Noakes who is, to quote Wikipedia.. ‘…a South African scientist, and an emeritus professor in the Division of Exercise Science and Sports Medicine at the University of Cape Town."

    https://nutritionconfidence.wordpress.com/2017/04/21/statement-on-the-outcome-of-the-hpcsa-inquiry-into-the-conduct-of-professor-tim-noakes/

    The replies are hysterical, nary a one in support, I'm surprised they didn't all get blocked or deleted.

    More on Noakes by Noakes

    which has left MacAlpine and his cronies crowing that his diet doesn't work since the Metformin is obviously what improved his health.

    Here's a horrifying though for anyone who Twitters, can you imagine the offspring of Alastair MacAlpine and Samuele Marcora?

    Meanwhile even in the Daily Fail

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-4441526/Could-going-low-carb-help-fight-diabetes.html

    This one

    http://bjsm.bmj.com/content/early/2017/03/31/bjsports-2016-097285

    got a vindictive response in the Guardian, so no surprise there then.

    Chris Gardner may be a vegan but he is not afraid to follow science even when it contradicts his beliefs

    Michael Eades once suggested watching Woodstock, or films with crowd scenes from the seventies or earlier, to see what would today be regarded as stick-people

    Seen the likes of that before including one comment on the blog stating the reason Eddie had got his A1c down was because he was taking a shed load of drugs two metformin to be exact  Rolling Eyes

    MacAlpine and his cronies support dietary guidelines that even max dose of metformin could not even start to address, instead it would need a multi med regime and or insulin therapy too

    The horror is that he is a paediatrician. Catch them young. Stuff them with carbs and Omega 6s and keep them away from healthy fats, then blame them when the inevitable happens. Then Marcora steps in claiming that bariatric surgery is the only cure. See also, the divot who claims diabetes in caused by not walking enough. I used to walk miles, and yet here I am.

    Some of the responses here are a bit more enlightened

    Here, not so much. Forming the wagons into a circle comes very much to mind
