Publisher's Summary

Real Food on Trial continues the true and shocking story of a world-first: the unprecedented prosecution and persecution of Professor Tim Noakes, a distinguished scientist and medical doctor, in a case that stretched over more than four years. All for a single tweet giving his opinion on nutrition. Noakes and investigative journalist Marika Sboros have added up-to-date, robust scientific evidence in support of his views that launched the case against him.

Brilliant Exposé

It is frightingly brilliant.
it is hard and sad to see the writing etched against the wall.
You have been lied to.
You are being deceived.

A 20 hour therapy session.

Let me start by saying that I agree with almost everyone Dr. Tim Noakes and his co author Marika Sboros have to say about nutrition science and the real culprit of the diseases of civilization that have cropped up during this century. And yes, I agree Noakes was a victim here but he never lets you forget it. It's not quite whining, but it's close and the defensiveness in the book blunts the main message he has which again, I think is correct. In the end, I liked the story, liked the book, but didn't like the person.

Thank you to the wonderful Tim Noakes

I loved the science and the history of human nutrition. The extensive review of the research and explanation in a easy to digest format.
The narration was starchy but I got used to it.
So much information I need to listen again. Highly recommend.

A Gripping Real-Life Courtroom Thriller....

..... combined with cutting edge science and tons of common sense. What a fantastic book! Reading often like a fast-paced thriller, this true story of a modern-day David and Goliath struggle set in early 21st Century South Africa is a fascinating read, and the Audible version is extremely well produced and narrated. I loved this book and rate it as one of my top reads ever.
The revolutionary dietary science in it may just incidentally, change your life, save your life or simply help you be a much healthier person.
