In brief: Acne and dairy
Studies from new zealand show a correlation of acne with dairy products.
The authors postulate that the hormones from the cattle can affect acne in humans. There is a simple test you can do. Stop the dairy products for two weeks. Then add the dairy back and if you have an acne flare there is a correlation.
