Diet and Acne

Diet and Acne | The Paleo DietDiet and Acne Excerpt

Following our 2002 publication in The Archives of Dermatology demonstrating that acne was not present in two non-westernized populations, there has been renewed interest in the role that diet may play in the pathogenesis of this disease. In the past two years, there have been many studies that now support the link between diet and acne. Although these reports will need to be followed up by more extensive experiments, they are important for two reasons: 1) They represent the only well controlled, modern studies of diet and acne that have been published in more than35 years, and 2) they are contrary to the long held belief that acne is not caused by diet.Read more…

  1. ●●●Why do Non-Vegetarian Foods cause Pimples & Boils?●●●

        The excessive consumption of IODINE is known to cause some types of boils and rashes on the skin. It can be quite shocking for the readers to know that the effect of the excessive consumption of Vitamin B12, which is found in non-vegetarian foods, is much worse. Specifically, the excess of COBALT, which is a constituent of Vitamin B12, is one of the most important causes of pimples, acne, boils and other skin eruptions. Even the vegetarian foods like chocolate, some beers, dry fruits and nuts, which contain large amounts of COBALT, can cause pimples and other skin eruptions.

        The consumption of foods, drinks, and preparations containing COBALT and Vitamin B12 must be restricted by all patients who have pimples, acne, boils, measles, chicken pox or rashes of any type, which produce pus in the skin, or even in other parts deep in the body. Besides the non-vegetarian foods like meat, fish, chicken and eggs, even the consumption of Vitamin B12-containing milk, butter, cheese, icecream and other milk products should be avoided for some time by the persons suffering from the skin eruptions. Such persons must also avoid the pills that contain Vitamin B12.

    ★★★According to the ORIGINAL RESEARCH done by me about 40 years back, the excessive consumption of COBALT-rich foods, drinks and dietary supplements can cause pimples, acne, boils and rashes in susceptible persons of any age group, which includes even OLD PERSONS!! The consumption of even small amounts of a COBALT salt like COBALT SULFATE  can cause massive eruptions all over the skin of the face and the body of a susceptible person.★★★

        As Vitamin E is an antagonist of Vitamin B12, it can help in reducing the pimples, acne, boils and rashes caused by the consumption of excess COBALT. It is very likely that the mineral SELENIUM, which produces a sparing effect on the need for Vitamin E, may also be very helpful in controlling these skin eruptions.

        Persons susceptible to pimples and boils should not have dental fillings, caps or bridges containing any traces of COBALT. Their teeth should be free of COBALT, as otherwise such persons can continuously suffer from the rashes of pimples, acne, boils and other skin eruptions, which can lead to horrible scars on their faces and other parts of their bodies. 

    ★★★Lack of sex and the retention of semen for long periods in their bodies by young men can cause or increase pimples and boils in many of them. The consumption of sex stimulants can also trigger the eruption of pimples and boils in the persons who are prone to the disease.★★★

  2. Milk is essentially filtered blood and as such contains
    the full complement of hormones which are also
    present in blood…….thats good for our health…..
