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 Intolerant Dairy Princess

Sports Illustrated might include this headline in their "sign of the apocalypse" series, but I see it as encouraging that this year's New Jersey State Dairy Princess is lactose intolerant.

Terry Wright's story on tells us that:

Molly Boyle, 17-year-old daughter of Marianne Andrulewich and Richard Boyle of Raritan Township, is the 2009-10 New Jersey Dairy Princess. She was crowned during the recent centennial celebration of the N.J. Holstein-Friesian Association at the Neshanic Valley Country Club.

Molly won partly by creating a 3-a-Day Puzzle for first and second graders that yielded a message on healthy living when the pieces were put together. She gave a speech on "Lactose Intolerance in the Dairy Industry" that apparently detailed how one can be lactose intolerant and still have dairy regularly. Good for her.

And boo to reporter Wright, who needs to have a long talk with Ms. Boyle. She does emphatically not have a "milk allergy." That would prohibit her from consuming dairy. I bet she knows the difference between lactose intolerance and dairy allergy. Get the facts. Get the facts straight. The Dairy Queen does.
