Dairy Linked to Acne Development

from the PCRM website

Dairy products and foods with a high glycemic index are the leading causes of acne, according to a review published in the March issue of the Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.

Researchers examined the evidence between acne and diet and found that certain products, particularly cow’s milk, produce and stimulate hormones linked with acne. The association does not seem to be related to the fat content of milk, as low-fat milk had an even greater association with acne, compared with high-fat milk.

This study supports the findings in PCRM’s 2009 published review of diet and acne.
