Fort Collins, CO (PRWEB) June 13, 2006 -
A new book by Loren Cordain, Ph.D., establishes the ultimate cause of acne, and then presents a cure that will work in as few as 30 days. The book, titled The Dietary Cure for Acne, exposes the myth that diet does not affect acne, and then clearly explains how certain foods can adversely influence skin health.
Acne plagues millions of Americans, and can be an emotionally devastating disease. Between 79 to 95% of all teens between the ages of 16 and 18 have acne, and more than 40% of them have acne severe enough to require treatment from a physician. Americans spend over one hundred million dollars just on non-prescription medication to treat acne.
Loren Cordain is the author of more than 100 peer-reviewed scientific articles and abstracts. His research has appeared in the world’s top nutrition journals including the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, the British Journal of Nutrition, and the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition, among others.
In 2002, Dr. Cordain published a paper in The Archives of Dermatology, which identified two remote groups of people who did not suffer from acne – the Kitavan Islanders near Papua, New Guinea, and the Ache people living in a remote jungle in eastern Paraguay.
Recently the results of a two year study of 43 acne patients were reported in the medical literature. The diet used to treat the patients was based upon the dietary characteristics of the foods that the Kitavan and Ache people consumed. This experiment was the first human clinical trial to show that diet did indeed cause acne, and that diet could also be used to improve acne symptoms.
“The book encompasses and expands upon my scientific publications,” says Cordain. “It is based upon an exhaustive study of the scientific literature, an understanding of the molecular mechanisms involved in acne, as well as verification from an actual scientific trial with acne patients. It’s also a cure that will work quickly – often in 30 days or less.”
The Dietary Cure for Acne contains seven chapters, and 174 scientific references. It is written in an easy-to-understand manner to appeal to everyone from the teenager to the dermatologist. The book is currently available as a downloadable eBook for $19.95 from http://www.DietaryAcneCure.com.
