Potatoes = Acne???!?!

I was reading in a magazine (cosmo or glamour or something) a few weeks ago, and a dermatologist said that the number 1 worst food that causes acne are potatoes (any kind, they don't have to be fried to be bad)!!! Does anyone understand why? I don't get it, and I happen to loooove all sorts of potatoes...and now I'm depressed........ :-({|=

I'm guessing it will be connected to their high glycemic load ie: the speed in which consumption will raise your blood sugar, which in turn can cause you to produce more of a hormone called insulin like growth factor which aggravates/promotes acne. My understanding of this kind of biology is really small.

Enormous amounts of studies have that there is no correlation between acne and food consumption.

Heh, that's what they'd like you to think. But it's bull.

That's weird cause I've never liked potatoes (except mashed potatoes on ocasion) and I've had acne for a long time. Do you think maybe it's because of the carbs? Maybe I should stop eating all that pasta. biggrin.gif
