Acne Linked To Milk

Acne Linked To Milk

(ePharmaNews) – Teenagers often complain of the mothers' nagging on drinking a cup of milk before going to school, and they often, at the same time, complain of pimples on the face. Anyway, mothers' wishes will get even harder for teenagers to comply with when they know that milk can cause acne, according to a new study.

The study which was done in Italy and published in JAAD, concluded that consuming milk more than three times a week increases the rate of moderate and severe acne, and the risk is greater with skim milk.

The study included 200 persons suffering from moderate and severe acne, and 358 normal persons.

The study found many unpredicted factors that are more prevalent in the affected group, such as being obese or having a sibling or a parent with severe acne, and also ruled out some common beliefs about acne like some claims that smoking and some types of menstrual periods can cause the facial blemishes.

The result of this study confirmed what a previous workshop funded by "Nestle" announced one year ago, when experts hypothesized that milk increases insulin production and several other related hormones which can lead to increased acne by not completely understood mechanism.

It is worth mentioning that "Nestle" declared that the 85% prevalence rate of acne among western teenagers indicates unhealthy food habits and that the current challenge of future nutritional researches is about producing a kind of milk that does not enhance insulin production, which may decrease diabetes, obesity and ,hopefully, acne.
