Many scientists have traced his upsurge to changes in the dietary habits of North Americans.

Most of this book--about 70% or so--was a discussion of the causes of acne and a survey of a variety of studies that dealt with acne and its causes. A lot of that discussion was very technical but it boiled down to the same point again and again: diet influences acne. Well, duh! The title of the book tells us that!! I was a little disappointed. There is a good section on foods to eat and foods to avoid, as well as an explanation for each of these. The "menu plans" were for only a week's worth of ...more
I quit eating dairy and starting taking omega 3s religiously after I read this book. My skin dramatically improved in about a month, after struggling with adult acne into my 30s. Now, if I lay off the dairy and sugar (which I'm not always good at, honestly), my skin is practically perfect. Reading this book is truly one of the best things I've ever done.
Dairy is evil. I just saved you the time you would have spent reading it. Sadly dairy is in EVERY damn thing, so enjoy the weight loss that goes along with the clear skin you will have when you change your ways.

Interesting read that actually looks at how the whole body processes nutrients and how everything works in concert. Quite a few recipes that look tasty as well.
This was a very informative book. I have been struggling with acne for the last 6 months or so that seemed to just come out of nowhere. I had some acne when I was a teenager but the current flare up is worse than I have ever experienced. Before I picked up this book, I had already made some dietary changes, mostly cutting out refined sugars and most carbohydrates (grains and most fruit).

For those interested in reading this book I will tell you that the majority of the book is an analysis of a w
A thorough and unabashedly scientific discussion of how nutrition, hormones, and other key players affect the inflammatory aggravators of acne. Less full of hype than many other books of this type - actually insistent that the authors are not promising a miracle cure. Well worth wading through all the chemical names and dense explanations to gain a better understanding of how the human body functions and how you can leverage that knowledge.

My skin and overall health is now much better years after reading this book
Really detailed in the science behind the recommendations, would have preferred the text to be a bit less blocky, but that could have been due to the ereader I was reading it on. A tough read for those without a degree in biology and chemistry, but worth it to discover some potentially helpful information for curing acne.
I wish someone had given me this book in high school. This book is well researched and has a wealth of information. However, this book might be a tough read for someone without a scientific background.

I agree with most of what's in this book; our diets do affect how our skin looks. Yet, don't buy this book and think if you follow what it says it will magically make your skin look perfect.
Essentially the diet is the same thing as In Defense Of Food
