Because of spam, I personally moderate all comments left on my blog. However, because of health issues, I will not be able to do so in the future.

If you have a personal question about LI or any related topic you can send me an email at I will try to respond.

Otherwise, this blog is now a legacy site, meaning that I am not updating it any longer. The basic information about LI is still sound. However, product information and weblinks may be out of date.

In addition, my old website, Planet Lactose, has been taken down because of the age of the information. Unfortunately, that means links to the site on this blog will no longer work.

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

Yogurt One of World's Healthiest Foods

Health magazine named the five healthiest foods in the world in its current issue.

Yogurt was one of them. "Among yogurt's benefits: enhanced immunity, improved lactose intolerance, and stronger bones," the magazine said.

That's real yogurt, as made in Greece: the slightly sour natural variety, not the sugar-laden dessert that is usually found in American supermarkets. That still has some of the same health benefits, but the extra sugar can be a problem.

The other top four:

Spain: Olive Oil
Antioxidant-rich olive oil protects against heart disease.

Japan: Soy
Protein-packed soy is linked to the prevention of cancer and osteoporosis.

India: Lentils
Lentils give you protein, cholesterol-lowering soluble fiber, and lots of iron.

Korea: Kimchi
Loaded with key vitamins, kimchi contains healthy bacteria that aids digestion.
