The Lactose Intolerance Clearinghouse Has Moved.

My old website can be found at I am no longer updating the site, so there will be dead links. The static information provided by me is still sound.

For quick offline reference, you can purchase Planet Lactose: The Best of the Blog as an ebook on or or or a whole lot of other places that Smashwords is suppose to distribute the book to. Almost 100,000 words on LI, allergies, milk products, milk-free products, and the genetics of intolerance, along with large helpings of the weirdness that is the Net.

I suffer the universal malady of spam and adbots, so I moderate comments here. That may mean you'll see a long lag before I remember to check the site and approve them. Despite the gap, you'll always get your say. I read every single one, and every legitimate one gets posted.

Lactose Intolerance Support Group

Support groups for people with lactose intolerance are quite rare. I haven't heard of more than a couple over the years.

But one's forming in Greenville, SC, according to an article by Mike Foley online at

Because lactose intolerance is so prevalent, a lactose-intolerance support group is forming locally. Organizers include Dr. Michael Kelly of Gastroenterology Associates; Karen Schwartz, a registered dietitian with Bon Secours St. Francis Health System; Whole Foods; and several national suppliers of alternative dairy products such as goat's milk and soy milk.

The first meeting is Jan. 30, from 7-8:30 p.m. at St. Francis Women's and Children's Hospital on Commonwealth Drive on Greenville's Eastside, in Classroom 201.

To register or for more information, call: (864) 268-1363. Space is limited to 25 people.

Know of groups in other cities? Let me know and I'll post them here.
