Drinking milk may give you acne

LONDON: Drinking milk may have several benefits but now a new research has revealed that women who drink more than two servings of skimmed milk every day risk developing acne.

The study discovered that women who have two or more servings of skimmed milk are 44 per cent more likely to develop severe acne, reports the Daily Mail.

The research blamed the presence of hormones and bioactive molecules in milk for triggering the condition.

Researchers also found women who drank more than three daily servings of any type of milk are 22 per cent more likely to suffer from acne.

The report said: "We found a positive association with acne for intake of total milk and skim milk.

We hypothesise that the association with milk may be because of the presence of hormones and bioactive molecules in milk."

    Are you kidding me...

    First of all maybe it affect women cos milk comes from female cows?? Whilst the males under up as hamburgers.

    Then you got to think that a cow is only supposed to produce milk when it has a calf, so they're puping full of all sorts to make it produce milk throughout the year.

    Don't forget the bacteria in milk too, afterall that's what makes it go off, try cravendale milk which is better filtered and you see how much longer milk can really last when better filtered.

    Mass produced milk is full of all sorts of stuff

    Maybe men's hormones have something in them that helps them or maybe cos it's most girls are smaller then most guys so same amount of milk has different affects.. dunno
