The physicians Committee for Responsible medicine (PCRM) ran an article on diary causing acne. This new study shows that dairy and sugar are linked to skin problems. So if you want clear skin, you may want to avoid these products in your foods. It was previously thought that oily foods caused it but there is little evidence to prove this. It was also believed that acne was a genetic condition. We now know that genetic really means epigenetic and can be caused by our environment (diet, stress, thinking, etc). A study of twins with identical genetics) showed one twin could get acne while the other did not. Epigenetics in twins is not the same since each twin lives there own life-style.
