I've read in many places that refined sugars, breads and other like products can cause acne? Is this true? Can a healthy diet improve acne? Exercise?

It's junk: You've discovered that there's a huge fantasy literature on "this food is good / bad for this / that disease." people write their subscientific observations and decide that somebody saying there's no effect must be ignorant / unspiritual. The real controlled studies show basically zero diet effect on acne. Good diet & fitness are benenficial for their own sake and general health. ...Read more

People say that smoking causes wrinkles around your lips. People suck on drinking straws in the same way. Wont that cause wrinkles as well?

Carbon Monoxide: No. The problem with smoking is that your blood cells get all blocked with carbon monoxide and the tissues get less oxygen so that if there is aging trauma to the muscles around the mouth then there is little healing there. It is all about carbon monoxide and lack of oxygen in the scenario of a smoker. ...Read more

Can raw green veg cause excess toxins in the body, is this true?

No: That's goofy stuff. Ignore whoever told this to you -- in fact, it's best to disregard anybody who talks to you about "build-up of toxins", period. They're trying to sell you either a silly diet or an unhealty "purge". There's really no such thing, and your body cleans itself. If you're interested in pop claims and healthy eating, get with an evidence-based holist in your community. ...Read more

Is it true that some lipsticks contain lead which can cause skin cancer?

Is it true that some lipsticks contain lead which can cause skin cancer?

One of the difficult jobs faced by the epa and the fda is establishing arbitrary "safe levels" for substances that pose minimal threats at low levels, and there was a minor flap about some lipsticks having slightly more lead than some current "allowables." your own body naturally contains lead. Stop worrying. ...Read more

Can bread cause constipation? Is this true that tthe flour used in making bread known as maida causes constipation?

Coconut and olive oil can lubricate from the inside out. Peace and good health. ...Read more
