@alternatevista.
Correct one molecule can make a difference.
But the general rule of thumb in my pharmacy class is that we predict the actions of the drug based on the molecular structure. And it works pretty damn well most of, but not all, the time.
So here are the similarities between accutane and vitamin A:
1. Similar molecular structure.
2. Nearly identical efficacy in treating cystic acne. (At their respective doses.)
3. Both share many of the same side effects such as: birth defects, dry skin, depression.
Do I even need to go on? At this point you are just being ignorant if you aren't seeing similarity between accutane and vitamin A.
Furthermore, one must ask themselves. If taking a certain amount of an essential vitamin shows a statistically significant reduction in the illness, wouldn't the cause be referred to as a deficiency?
Edit: fixed some grammar mistakes

That vitamin and accutane are similar is fact and common knowledge. Not your discovery. And I've no idea why you feel the need to argue that point.

You were the one who began arguing that they weren't. What on earth are you smoking?

What are you smoking?  I did no arguing whatsoever.  And no one argued that they weren't similar.


Status: Clear after 30 years. Wow, I guess it's been 6 years, now.

[ Story: Severe Acne since I was 10. 10+ years of Dermatologists, Antibiotics, topicals and ACCUTANE did nothing. Discovered oranges triggered the worst of my cystic acne = about 70% improvement. Tried some nutrient supplements like B-complex with zinc and C, saw palmetto and a BHA like the aspirin mask = more improvement, a lot less oily. Then, Diet changes = Clear.

Regimen: Anti-inflammatory, nutrient dense, blood sugar stabilizing diet and supplements (for hormones, inflammation, aging, health). No soap or other cleanser except for hand washing! Water only or Oil cleanse. Aloe Vera mixed with niacinimide and a high linoleic acid oil for moisturizer and reduce pigmentation.

Diet effects acne in so many ways: hormone balance, inflammation, Insulin levels, digestion, allergies and intolerances, liver function, adrenal function, SHBG levels, sebum quality, cell function and turnover, nutrient deficiencies, body fat, etc. Basic advice: Eat, sleep, supplement and exercise like you are a diabetic. And eat real food!

I Used to think the same way as you until diet controlled my acne about 85-90%. It is all in the diet.

This section of the forums is really good comedy, but that's just it, nothing else. You have one major flaw in your diet curing acne theory:

 

You think that every human being has perfect genetics and wrong diet just causes all the problems, acne etc. Listen, diet has no effect in your skin, it's all genetics, some people has just bad cards to play with, that's it. Don't blame food for your shitty genetics! Life is ruthless, deal with it.

 

In one way you have a point. In others you don't.

 

I follow science, not opinions. If you have something to say then be prepared to prove it with crediable studies on the said subject.

What point? I don't see a valid thing in that post.
