  1. Interesting, but I can't really understand the study that dan mentions... can anyone explain this in simple terms lol.
  2. On a different note, does anyone know what dan kern's position is on the diet/acne relationship? I remember him saying a while ago that they were not related, but maye he changed his mind.
  3. Just found an article that has a similiar agenda as this post from http://acneresearch.org/blog/?p=7 Acne As A Predominently Western Disease As many acne sufferers know, one of the first steps to understanding the acne conundrum is realizing that people who live in 3rd world countries, such as regions of Africa and Asia, rarely suffer from acne. Acne is primarily a western disease and was prompted by a western lifestyle, which includes minimal exercise and encourages a diet filled with fat and
  4. Anyway, as the title suggests, just ran into this web site, http://www.acneresearch.org. Read through some stuff and it seems okay. Anyway, this post is really about, how can you really trust a web site? I mean how do I know if someone's advice is credible or not? The guy recommends diet with benzyl peroxide. Anyway, I'd appreciate it if someone could check it out and see if it worth following or not. I guess i'm sick of getting bad advice (remember the person who told you to piss on your fac
  5. Your very pretty. You hardly have any acne at all (None that I can tell from your pictures). There is nothing to cry about.
  6. I have had this exact experience many times. Don't you wish the whole world had dimmer lights -- then no one would hardly notice anything.
  7. This doesnt make much sense to me, considering most people "consume" meat for ten consecutive days all the time. I eat meat everyday, so why do I still have acne!?!?
  8. How is it incomplete? When you were a little kid, you didn't have acne. As soon as you hit puberty, and your hormones went crazy, thats when you get acne! It would seem that hormones are the relevant difference between people who have acne and people who do not. One flaw in the theory is that all weight trainers would have severe acne that occured proportionally to how much they trained. I think the hormonal issue encompasses females moreso then males, like premenstrual acne and acne relate
  9. It makes perfect sense. Fruit juice is a concentrated form of the energy source of the fruit and is largely stripped of its nutrients. The 'juice' is just there for energy, the actual plant material contains all of the nutrients, antioxidants, and so forth. It's essentially like the difference between processed white bread and whole grain. Also, in eating fruit, you're less likely to consume as many calories and sugar as you would if you merely drank the juice. Maybe I'm inheren
  10. This makes no sense. Fruit juice and fruit have exactly the same amount of sugar. The only thing your pointing out, is fruit has more nutriants and other benefits, as opposed to fruit juice which is really nothing but sugar. And yes, fruit is probably bad for acne, due to the sugar.
  11. How is it incomplete? When you were a little kid, you didn't have acne. As soon as you hit puberty, and your hormones went crazy, thats when you get acne! It would seem that hormones are the relevant difference between people who have acne and people who do not.
  12. So you think that diet is 100% responsible for acne?
