Chinese Report Found Fatty Food & Tea Has a Positive Correlation with Rosacea

Recommended Posts

"We found that high-frequency intake of fatty food and tea presented a positive correlation with rosacea, while high-frequency dairy product intake showed significant negative correlation with rosacea. Sweet food, coffee and spicy food appeared to be independent of any subset of rosacea in our study. However, high-frequency dairy product intake showed a borderline beneficial effect on rosacea severity. We further analyzed the correlation between diet and the subtype of rosacea. We found that high-frequency fatty intake was associated with erythematotelangiectatic rosacea (ETR) and phymatous rosacea, while high-frequency tea intake was only associated with ETR. In addition, high-frequency dairy product intake showed negative correlations with ETR and papulopustular rosacea. Rosacea is associated with some dietary factors, and our study is valuable in establishing dietary guidelines to prevent and improve rosacea."

The above report was done with 'questionnaires' and was not done with placebo controlled double blind studies. Again, the above study on diet and rosacea is simply anecdotal reports. 

Another point to question is, does the tea consumed by the respondents to the 'questionnaire' have sugar?
