Milk and Acne - Are Ray Peat & Danny Roddy Right?

Answered on August 19, 2014

Hi,

I am a former acne sufferer, so...

From what i read and found out, Ray Peat and Danny Roddy say that acne sufferers can have milk, cheese and other dairy products without getting acne PROVIDING vitamin A is sufficent?!

Is this right?...or have I made a mistake.

And if they are right, is eating carrots, sweet potato, butter and liver(300g a week) enough to prevent acne if I decided to introduce milk again to my diet?

How much vitamin A would be needed?

Thanks

That wasn't the case for me. I ate ample carrots, sweet potatoes, and consumed vitamin A via supplements, but I the acne didn't cease till I stopped dairy. I've tried to reintroduce dairy while keeping vitamin A as high as possible, and it's given me acne every time...

I was just hinting at some improper grammar for you to fix, but Mike T got to it.

I haven't read a ton of this, but I've seen this referenced before. However, I don't think it's a sweeping statement that can be made. I've always taken the approach with acne that there is still a significant N=1 capacity that applies.

There are people who suffer from acne no matter what. Others never have an issue with it.
