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

Maybe: A host of studies of diet and acne have produced little in the way of consistent findings; a link to dairy is weak but stronger than chocolate. You need to understand that looking for a cause of outbreaks is seldom productive and you need to manage acne. If topical benzoyl peroxide hasn't cleared you in two weeks, get with your personal physician. ...Read more
No: Life's a matter of weighing benefits and risks, and there's money to made by scaring people with quarter-truths about things they need.
