Mark Hyman, MD: Transforming the food industry seems monumental, a gigantic undertaking. In the small places in our lives, our shopping carts, the fridge, the cupboard, the kitchen and on our dining room table – is where all the power is.

Mark Hyman, MD: MSG is used to create fat mice so researchers can study obesity. MSG is an excito-toxin that stimulates your brain to eat uncontrollably. It is in 80% of processed foods mostly disguised as “natural flavorings”.
Mark Hyman, MD: Your tongue can be fooled and your brain can become addicted to the slick combinations of fat, sugar, and salt pumped into factory made foods, but your biochemistry cannot and the result is the disaster of obesity and chronic disease we have in America today.
There is an Insidious Presence of Pharma and Industry in Medical Education, Research, and Practice, Dr. Mark Hyman
Mark Hyman, MD: As reported in The New York Times, there is an insidious presence of pharma and industry in medical education, research, and practice — a presence that prevents the best evidence on lifestyle medicine from becoming the standard of care.
Carrie Underwood said her cystic acne “really cleared up” after ditching dairy.
A vegetarian for a long time, you recently went vegan. How has that impacted your skin?
I definitely notice a difference since I stopped eating foods like greasy fried chicken. I also never knew how much dairy can mess with your skin; my cystic acne really cleared up after I stopped eating it. I’m still learning the ins and outs of what I can and can’t eat, but so far I’m loving it. And of course, drinking a lot of water helps too.(http://bit.ly/JpL3f4).
Dr. Mark Hyman says dairy and sugar cause acne.
How To Prevent and Treat Acne
Eight simple steps will help most overcome their acne problems.
- Stay away from milk. It is nature’s perfect food—but only if you are a calf.
- Eat a low glycemic load, low sugar diet. Sugar, liquid calories, and flour products all drive up insulin and cause pimples.
- Eat more fruits and vegetables. People who eat more veggies (containing more antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds) have less acne. Make sure you get your 5–9 servings of colorful fruits and vegetables every day.
- Get more healthy anti-inflammatory fats. Make sure to get omega-3 fats (fish oil) and anti-inflammatory omega-6 fats (evening primrose oil). You will need supplements to get adequate amounts (more on that in a moment).
- Include foods that correct acne problems. Certain foods have been linked to improvements in many of the underlying causes of acne and can help correct it. These include fish oil, turmeric, ginger, green tea, nuts, dark purple and red foods such as berries, green foods like dark green leafy vegetables, and omega 3-eggs.
- Take acne-fighting supplements.Some supplements are critical for skin health. Antioxidant levels have been shown to be low in acne sufferers. And healthy fats can make a big difference. Here are the supplements I recommend:
- Try probiotics. Probiotics also help reduce inflammation in the gut that may be linked to acne. Taking probiotics (lactobacillus, etc.) can improve acne.
- Avoid foods you are sensitive to. Delayed food allergies are among the most common causes of acne—foods like gluten, dairy, yeast, and eggs are common culprits and can be a problem if you have a leaky gut.http://drhyman.com/blog/conditions/do-milk-and-sugar-cause-acne/
