Diet Can Control Acne

Dear Dr. Cordain,

I wrote you an email about a year ago (I don’t expect you to remember) about your ... diet-acne connection. You encouraged me to try your diet to control my acne. I’ve been eating the way you’ve outlined ... and my face is amazingly clear. My only breakouts occur after a dietary slip-up. I’ve turned several other acne sufferers onto this way of eating and they’ve all seen drastic improvements. We really appreciate your work and the fact that research goes “against the grain” of what dermatologists and others would ever say.

Thanks so much!
Pete
