    That article on acne is…well, I guess they get part marks for effort.

    Coming from years of researching acne to find the cause of my own, acne, when related to food, which is not always the case, is generally because a person is not getting enough nutrients, causing an imbalance in the body that leads to an outbreak (so too much sugar can do this in some people, as can eating too many carbs without the proportional amount of proteins and veggies, as well as eating food not part of their race’s traditional diet [e.g. a Japanese person eating a traditional German diet]), or because of an intolerance (e.g. being unable to drink pasteurised milk because the nutrients that make it digestable have been killed). Other times acne can be caused by things like poor liver function (which, admittedly, can be brought on by food), constipation (trapping toxins in the body), allergies and stress (work, school, lack of sleep, excessive exercise without enough food and rest, not eating enough, etc.). Sometimes acne is actually boils.

    Acne is completely individual to the person who has it; it may be directly or indirectly related to food, but it also may not be.
