I had body acne for 3 years, especially on my back. One day, only about 5 months ago, I read an article about increasing your alkaline food intake, and decreasing your acidic food intake. I tried this for a few days, and within 4 days my body acne was significantly decreased. Within 2 weeks it was completely gone. This acne that was constantly with me for 3 years, disappeared as soon as I changed my diet, and hasn't returned since.
So anybody that says that diet and acne are not related are wrong. In SOME people it is caused by diet, or at least triggered by diet. In others it's caused by hormones or other factors.
I negged you, and as far as it being "disproven 20 years ago". Who disproved it? Because I can't find a single credible source on the internet when searching for "acne diet disproven" "acne diet study" or "acne diet debunked". Can you post a single credible source that shows these studies? Credible, not someone's personal website they pay $5 a month to maintain.
Every once in a while you hear about a person who goes to a dermatologist, and the dermatologist tells them that diet plays no role. Well wait a second, isn't this the same dermatologist that gets paid hundreds or thousands of dollars by your insurance company everytime you visit them? and doesn't this money keep rolling in as long as you continue to return to them to have prescriptions for accutane etc. filled? Why on earth would they tell you diet could be the cause, that would be bad for business.
Diet does play a role for some people. Whey Protein mixes usually have sweeteners in them, which are acidic. So yes, in some people, this could lead to acne. But if you looked at your diet, at which foods are acidic and which are alkaline, you are probably consuming so much acidic foods already, that if you are one of those people who's acne is caused by diet, adding whey protein to your diet isn't going to make it much worse with everything else you are probably eating.
