Gary Fettke is the only doctor in Australia to be banned from giving dietary advice to his patients, after recommending those with complications of Type 2 Diabetes reduce their sugar intake. 

The ban was lifted by Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) in October 2018, after two years of campaigning by Dr Fettke and his supporters.

Now Dr Fettke has set his sights on the anti-meat lobby, claiming the current demonisation of red meat has nothing to do with science, but is about religious ideology and processed food industry profit.
