    Many doctors say that diet doesn't cause acne, however a new Australian study suggests otherwise.
    Facial acne improved dramatically in young men ( ages 15 to 25) who for three months shifted their diet away from foods that spike blood sugar, such as soft drinks, candy and white bread. These foods are also called high=glycemic-index foods.
    this is the first real eidence that reducing glycemic load relieves ance, reasearchers say. their theory: Foods that are sugary and highly processed hype insulin, which affects hormones in ways that promote acne.
    Message for youths who are prone to acne: Curb blood sugar spikes by eating whole grains, legumes, fruits and vegetables and you might actually be able to keep acne away.
    thanks to USA weekend journal for this information.
    Additional information I heard on TV: Depression and also side -effects of some medicines taken before also cause acne.
