I heard that 30% of waste is excreted from your skin. So does eating bad with greasy food give you acne?

I heard that 30% of waste is excreted from your skin. So does eating bad with greasy food give you acne?

Let's talk...: The claim that 30% of waste is excreted through your skin is bunk. The one waste product that you lose through your skin is urea and this loss is significant only if you sweat; the stuff is also famously nontoxic. There's actually a consistency rare among scientific studies that diet doesn't affect acne -- i was surprised too. You're an adult and can read critically. Thanks for asking. ...Read more

After eating fatty unhealthy food, how can I cleanse my body of all the unhealthy food and start all over fresh to put healthy food in my body?

Does'n work that way: Our body is an amazing biochemical machine but it does not work the same way as in your car engine. Therefore, we cannot just flush out the toxins or bad things in one shot like car mechanics do on car engine. Despite a lot of claims by several OTC medications, those cleansing methods are myths and not scientifically found. Try to eat healthy and live healthy consistently is the best way. ...Read more

Do you think a mainly plant based raw food diet is the key to longevity?

Do you think a mainly plant based raw food diet is the key to longevity?

B12 which is only available in red meat and when we are vegetarian need to be taken either as a sublingual supplement or by injection. A healthy spiritual and mental health completes the key ...Read more

Is eating junk food once in a while bad for your health and sweets?

Suit yourself: Life's too short and too difficult already without struggling to live within the strict proscriptions of militants. A sensible diet (avoid the worst grease, sugar and salt) most of the time is useful; binding yourself to avoiding every candy bar or snack chip that you actually want is being obsessive rather than living a healthy lifestyle.

Does eating a very lowfat diet give you more constipation due to lack of food oils in your intestine?

Does eating a very lowfat diet give you more constipation due to lack of food oils in your intestine?

Fiber: In general, the best natural way to "move bowels" is to eat foods with high fiber content. Fiber is material that can't be broken down by our gastrointestinal system and move things along. Oil and oily foods are absorbed by the gut, unless there is some sort of enzyme deficiency, so they aren't effective for what you're suggesting. Very oily foul smelling stools are termed steatorrhea. ...Read more
