Day two of the hearing into the professional conduct of professor Tim Noakes resumed on Tuesday.
Noakes is investigated by The Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA) for advising a mother via Twitter, to wean her baby onto a low carb/high fat diet.
Rebecca Davis of the Daily Maverick says that two witnesses were questioned, first being the complainant and the former chair of the association for Dietetics in South Africa (ADSA), Claire Julsing-Strydom.
Davis says that the point Julsig - Strydom made was more on Prof. Tim Noakes as the authority figure on the subject of nutrition and his opinion on the matter carries more weight even on social media.
