Tim Noakes: only way to save the planet is by going back to eating lots of meat

Professor Tim Noakes says the only way to save the planet is by going back to eating more meat. Noakes has warned of the dire consequences if the “dangerous trend” to favour plant-based diets continues.

Professor Noakes is one of the world’s foremost advocates of the banting-diet which encourages a diet high in fats and low in carbohydrates.

The world renowned scientists and sports nutritionist has recently taken to social media to refute claims made by the popular Netflix documentary “What the Health”. The show has been credited with a sharp increase in the numbers of people taking up a vegetarian or vegan diet.

Noakes has been vocal in his opposition to a meat-free diet and said that no doctor who had any moral or ethical code would prescribe a vegetarian or vegan diet.

Briefly.co.zalearned from Thehuffingtonpost.co.za that Noakes said people could live on a diet made up entirely of animal products but that the same was not true of a completely vegan diet.

He pointed out that vegan’s had to rely on supplements to provide some vital missing proteins and without these supplements they would be unable to survive making it an incomplete diet.

Noakes points out that over-farming is leading to the loss of topsoil which he believes is a dangerous trend. He admits that he faces an uphill battle because of what he calls “the myth that livestock is driving climate change”. Noakes says the myth is being perpetuated by the big oil companies and people like Bill Gates and Richard Branson.

The professor claims that vegetarians and vegans were trying to undo more than 3 million years of evolution. He says only once species on the planet had reverted from eating meat to eating plants and that is the Panda bear which is one of the unhealthiest animals on earth.

Noakes dismissed claims that he had an agenda which was being funded by the meat, egg and dairy companies. He claims he had no links to any such company and that he had even donated the proceeds from his last book to charitable foundations.
