Cape Town - In a final judgment, the HPCSA appeal committee has found controversial Professor Tim Noakes not guilty of unprofessional conduct.
The Noakes Foundation welcomes the ruling of the HPCSA appeal committee of not guilty.
In 2014, Noakes was charged with unprofessional conduct for giving unconventional advice over Twitter, advising a mother to wean her baby on to a low-carbohydrate, high fat diet.
After being found not guilty in April last year, the HPCSA appealed the ruling, resulting in a hearing that was held earlier this year.
"The verdict of not guilty has far more reaching consequences, not only for Prof Noakes and the HPCSA, but for South Africans as well," The Noakes Foundation said in a statement.
