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.

$3800 Mistake

When you're peddling a research report for the astounding price of $3800 you'd think you'd take the time to be sure your pitch has been proofread.

Not the Datamonitor people. Or perhaps the blame goes to the shoddy coders at Pharmaceutical Business Review Online.

Whichever. One of them is responsible for this:

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a common disease affecting 1020% of the total adult population...

Despite the substantial impact IBS can have on sufferers' well being, about 7080% of sufferers have not been formerly diagnosed.

Wow! No wonder those of us with IBS feel so lousy. We each have it ten times over.

And this in a report whose justification of its price is so that you can:
Quantify the key target segments of the IBS patient population across the seven major markets

Quantify your press releases first, please.
