Interview: Tim Noakes

Bron: The Actuary - 11 april 2019

Professor Tim Noakes – scientist, emeritus professor, nutritionist, author, lobbyist, athlete and public speaker – has always challenged beliefs, and never been afraid to prove himself wrong. “Actuaries need to know that truth changes all the time,” he says. “You can never do the final experiment. In biology, we never know the final truth.

“An experiment should disprove, not prove, a theory. It is easy to do an experiment to prove a hypothesis – this is confirmation bias. We all have a model of how the world works and we need to deconstruct that model. The problem is that people become committed to an idea and never question or challenge it.”

Noakes’ main achievement, he says, is challenging ideas. “When something is paradoxical I cannot ignore it. All great advances in science come from studying the paradoxes.” He is now challenging what he calls ‘the nutrition paradox’, which he explains through his own experiences: “I was running marathons and eating a high-carbohydrate diet, but I still got Type 2 diabetes.”
