Scottish Doctor Wants World to Know What is Happening to South African Doctor Being Attacked for High Fat Diet Advice

We have covered the story of Dr. Tim Noakes previously here on Health Impact News. Dr. Noakes has been attacked for giving dietary advice that does not conform with government-approved nutrition standards. Dr. Noakes is one of those scientists that have come to understand the politics behind dietary advice, which often results in poor health for those who follow it. Dr. Noakes believes in a low carb high fat diet. The reason government nutrition advice will not endorse this diet, is because to do so would be to admit that the lipid theory of disease, that saturated fats cause high cholesterol which leads to heart disease, is false, and this would destroy several very profitable businesses, including pharmaceutical drugs designed to lower cholesterol levels (statin drugs). Dr. Malcolm Kendrick is one of the leading dissenting voices world-wide on the failed lipid theory of heart disease, and he wants the whole world to know what is happening to Tim Noakes in Africa, and sign a petition for him.

Medical Doctors Punished & Silenced for Giving “Unapproved” High Fat Dietary Advice

Dr. Gary Fettke, MD, of Australia and Professor Tim Noakes, MD, of South Africa are both being attacked for saving lives by promoting the low carbohydrate high fat diet. In the case of orthopedic surgeon Dr. Fettke, his offence against the Australian medical establishment was to teach his patients how to use the low carb high fat (LCHF) diet to reverse their type 2 diabetes and avoid the amputation of their feet and legs. He and his wife Belinda Fettke established two clinics to help people adopt a low carb high fat eating lifestyle. The sanctions placed on him prevent him from recommending or speaking about the LCHF diet to anyone, anywhere, and at any time for the rest of his life. In the case of Professor Emeritus Dr. Noakes, his offence against the South African medical establishment was to show that a low carb high fat diet could reverse numerous diseases. His LCHF book The Real Meal Revolution, is the all-time top selling non-fiction book in South Africa with more than 200,000 copies sold in the last two years. Affiliated with the University of Cape Town, Professor Emeritus Dr. Noakes has distinguished himself as one of the world’s most famous sports scientists. His work has evoked considerable backlash from those who seek to enforce compliance with high carb low fat dietary dogma. Dr. Noakes is refusing to yield to persecution by the trivial charge that was brought against him, and is using his trial to bring the science of the LCHF diet into public view in South Africa and around the world. Together, Drs. Noakes and Fettke used decades of scientific research to show the link between the government recommended high carb low fat diet and arterial disease, diabetes, obesity, heart disease, cancer, and dementia.
