BREAKING: They’ve Ruled In The Tim Noakes Misconduct Hearing

It’s been a long and protracted legal battle for Tim Noakes, aka Mr. Banting, but he can rest a little easier now.

It all started with that tweet about what babies should and shouldn’t be eating, which led to a complaint being lodged against him by Claire Julsing, the former president of the Association for Dietetics in South Africa.

Here’s the latest from TimesLive:

[He] has been cleared of misconduct after he provided advice on Twitter about what breast-fed babies should be given when being weaned.

Advocate Joan Adams‚ the chairman of an independent panel that considered a misconduct charge brought against Noakes by the Health Professions Council of SA‚ announced the verdict in Cape Town on Friday after reading a 60-page judgment.

She said four of the five panel members were party to the judgment. The other member disagreed with the outcome…

In her finding‚ Adams said Noakes’s Twitter account‚ which has 86‚000 followers‚ did not describe him as a registered doctor or suggest he acted as such.

It could not be assumed Twitter users were ignorant and vulnerable and needed to be protected from themselves‚ she said.

My guess is Tim will celebrate with a big, fat piece of meat tonight.
