Good stuff all around...

Here's my diet and skin story.

I had exzema so severe that the skin under my neck would turn tar black and flake and bleed in patches. I itched and hurt and there was nothing doctors could do for me. Creams made the skin softer, but I still cracked and itched. Oatmeal baths felt good while I was in the tub, but I'd get out of the water and the towel would feel like Brillo pad on my skin. I was 8-10 years old.

I read a book by Dick Gregory, stopped all red meat and my skin was baby soft and perfect within 3 weeks. Doctors couldn't explain it. I haven't questioned it since. I haven't eaten red meat in nearly 20 years due to the experience.

I am but one person with one totally weird experience, but I'm the biggest advocate for changing the diet to see what happens.
