Foods That Cause Wrinkles
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

If you're interested in pop claims and healthy eating, get with an evidence-based holist in your community. ...Read more

Tiny amounts: The internet hoax and "gold ring" tests have passed into being urban legends. 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.

Can bread cause constipation? Is this true that tthe flour used in making bread known as maida causes constipation?
No; unknown : Bread, in & of itself, does not cause constipation. However, bread that is made of highly refined grains, such as maida, lacks enough fiber necessary to prevent constipation.
