"Women who reported drinking more than three servings of any type of milk each day were 22 percent more likely to report having had severe acne than those who drank only one or fewer servings daily. Women who drank two or more daily servings of skim milk were 44 percent more likely to report having had severe acne. The abstract of the article notes that "Previous studies suggest possible associations between Western diet and acne" and concludes: "We found a positive association with acne for intake of total milk and skim milk. We hypothesize that the association with milk may be because of the presence of hormones and bioactive molecules in milk."
