University Of Miami Study Shows Chocolate Consumption Increases Acne By 169%
There has been a long-running debate about the role Chocolate or Cocao consumption may play in the development or worsening of acne.
Anecdotal evidence has indicated that … Yes … consumption of Chocolate may worsen acne. A double-blind study published recently showed evidence that a single binge consumption of 6 oz of chocolate increased acne by 169% within one week in 14 study participants who were given various levels of chocolate and a placebo.
Even worse, Chocolate consumption was shown to increase inflammatory lesions by 433% within 4 days and 233% within 7 days after the Chocolate was eaten by the study participants.
This is not at all surprising, since most of you have probably noticed an increase in the number of pimples after you eat Chocolate. Amazingly, this is the first study that shows a definitive link between Chocolate and Acne! It just has not been an area of intense scientific investigation.
Regardless, the simple conclusion is: Don’t Eat Chocolate If You Are Suffering From Acne!
