IMPORTANT NOTICE ABOUT COMMENTS

Because of spam, I personally moderate all comments left on my blog. That means you will not see your comment when you post it. It will instead show up within 48 hours, along with my response if one is appropriate.

All comments are welcome and will be posted, even if they are negative. You just can't promote other sites or products in them.

If you have a personal question about LI or any related topic you can send me an email at stevecarper@cs.com.

Otherwise, this blog and my Lactose Intolerance Clearinghouse are now legacy sites, meaning that I am not updating them any longer. The basic information about LI is still sound. However, product information and weblinks may be out of date.

My old website can be found at www.stevecarper.com/li

For quick offline reference, you can purchase Planet Lactose: The Best of the Blog as an ebook on Smashwords.com or Amazon.com or BarnesandNoble.com 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.

Note to Commenters

As you can tell by the dates, I haven't been keeping up this blog. I started in 2005, had a stroke, and then had to restart it 2006, after I could use both hands again for typing. From that awkward beginning, though, it bloomed and ran 1500 posts for another six years.

That's a lot of posts on Lactose Intolerance (LI). I covered everything I could think of saying and then started repeating myself. I hate that. Blogs are wonderful fun when you're saying new stuff that people need to know - and a huge boring chore if you're running the same old stuff into the ground.

The Internet never forgets, so all those words are still available here. If you want them in more convenient form, I collected the really good, new stuff into a book, Planet Lactose: The Best of the Blog, volume 1. You can buy it as an ebook on Smashwords.com or Amazon.com or BarnesandNoble.com 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.

People still read this blog and some of your take the time to comment. Unfortunately, like everyone else online, spam is a problem so I moderate the comments and have to approve them before they appear. I've been doing that only about once a month so some of you have had long waits before your comments appear. I'm sorry about that. I'll try to do better in the future, but I won't promise anything.

One thing I need to emphasize. I read every comment and I post every comment that isn't spam. Every comment, even the insults. I wish the people who insult me because I stomped on their favorite form of quackery would refute me by citing a medical journal article or similar respectable source, but they never do. Just "It works" followed by an insult. You can judge the value of those comments for yourselves. Others provide actual useful information and I thank all of you.
